Special Offer: A Lunt H-alpha solar telescope at a special price!

November 30 2018, Stefan Taube

 The LS50THa / B400PT solar telescope from Lunt Solar Systems allows safe solar observation in H-alpha-light. This wavelength allows you to observe prominences, filaments and other exciting phenomena in the sun’s atmosphere. We are currently offering the LS50THa / B400PT for only 999 Euros! Saving you 326 Euros when compared to the previous price!

Lunt Solar Systems Sonnenteleskop 50/350 LS50THa/B400PT

The somewhat cryptic designation LS50THa / B400PT describes the characteristic features of this solar telescope:

  • Its 50mm aperture and 350mm focal length make it particularly compact and allow it to be used on a camera tripod.
  • The H-alpha filter only passes light at a focal length of 656 nanometres, with a peak width at half-height of less than 0.75 angstroms.
  • B400 stands for the value of the cutting filter, which is located behind the H-alpha filter and reduces the intensity of sunlight. B400 means that it has a band pass of 4 millimeters.
  • PT stands for Pressure Tuning: The Fine-Tuning of the H-Alpha Etalon Filter is achieved via variation in air pressure. This ensures a particularly homogeneous image field.

The telescope is equipped with a helical focuser. But you can also purchase a matching and very high-quality Feather Touch focuser at a special price!

Starlight Instruments Okularauszug Feather Touch für Lunt LS50THa 1,25"

Another possible improvement is a reduction in the peak width at half height of the telescope. You can add a second H-alpha filter to the telescope. The matching LS50C module is also greatly reduced in price! This process, called ‘double stacking’ increases the contrast of the structures seen in H-alpha light.

But it is not only the LS50ThA / B400PT which is available at a reduced price, but also the special eyepieces for it, which are optimized for H-alpha light.

Lunt Solar Systems Okular-Set H-Alpha optimiert, 1,25"

These eyepieces are available as a complete set or individually  – with a saving of 47 Euros per eyepiece! And of course you can also use these eyepieces on any other telescope with H-alpha filters.

The offer is valid until 31.12.2018 and only while stocks last. Grab yours now!

Value for money set: Celestron CPC 800 telescope with StarSense AutoAlign

April 27 2018, Stefan Taube

We are currently offering you a valuable set, comprising a CPC 800 telescope and the StarSense AutoAlign module. You save €345.00 compared to buying all the items individually!

Celestron CPC 800 mit StarSense

The telescopes in the CPC series are modern classics! The American developer, Celestron, offers Schmidt Cassegrain optics with this series in a very sturdy azimuthal bracket mount. This compact system is great for when you’re on the move. If you want to drive to a dark sky, you can load this robust CPC into any small car and set it up quickly and easily at your observation site. The NexStar computer control will help you to adjust to interesting celestial objects at night. There are hardly any other telescope systems that will allow you to use your precious observation time so effectively as the CPC by Celestron.

Before you can use the NexStar control, you must first of all initiate your computer. This means you must tell the computer where the telescope is, enter the date and time, and orient it to the starry sky. The CPC telescopes shorten this procedure, too: The built-in GPS tells the NexStar control the location, date and time, and thanks to the SkyAlign technology, you don’t have to already know the stars for initialisation. It’s enough to adjust to three bright celestial objects of your choice in the telescope.

But it gets even easier: With the StarSense AutoAlign module, this last procedure isn’t necessary. Switch on the telescope and just wait for a short while. The telescope will initialise fully within three minutes and be available for you to start your observation session.

The StarSense AutoAlign module is suitable for GoTo telescopes by Celestron. There is also a special version for Skywatcher mounts.

You can now get the CPC 800 with StarSense AutoAlign at a great price!

Celestron CPC Teleskope

The telescopes in the CPC series come with an 8 to 11-inch aperture (200 to 279 mm). With your compact SC optics, these are real all-rounders, and are especially suitable for observing and photographing the moon and planets.

MEADE telescopes with a discount of up to 29%!

December 19 2017, Stefan Taube

We are now offering a large selection of MEADE telescopes at an extra special price!

LightBridge Dobson

LightBridge-12-Zoll

With Dobson telescopes in the LightBridge series, the grid tube structure became really popular. Thanks to the grid structure, the tube can be taken apart, i.e. you can take the telescope to a dark sky and set it up there. The main mirror in Dobson telescopes is, however, not exposed, and so it’s protected from dew.

Our offer:

 

Bracket mounting SC telescopes: LX90 and LX200

LX200-10-Zoll

MEADE is more well-known for its SC telescopes than for its Dobson models. The Schmidt-Cassegrain optics make it possible to have a very short tube with a high focal length. In combination with the bracket mounting, these optics offer astonishingly compact and sturdy full systems. The LX200 mount is fitted with computer control (GoTo).

The SC optics was further developed by MEADE: ACF stands for Advanced Coma Free – This means that you get pinpoint star images up to the edge of the field of view.

Our offer:

  • ACF-SC 254/2540 10″ UHTC LX90 GoTo currently at €2,550.00. You save €830.00.
  • ACF-SC 203/2000 8″ UHTC LX200 GoTo currently at €2,815.00. You save €735.00.
  • ACF-SC 254/2500 10″ UHTC LX200 GoTo currently at €4,009.00. You save €890.00.

 

LightSwitch: Telescopes with in-built astronomers

LS-8

Do you need a little bit more assistance? The telescopes in the LightSwitch series not only have GoTo control to find the stars, they carry out the necessary initialisation fully automatically at the start of the observation: You don’t have to enter the station, date or time; nor do you have to align the telescope to the stars in the sky. And there’s even more good news: LightSwitch telescopes have audio controls (in English).

Our offer:

  • ACF-SC 152/1524 LightSwitch 6 GoTo currently at €1798.00. You save €452.00.
  • ACF-SC 203/2000 LightSwitch 8 GoTo currently at €2120.00. You save €770.00.

 

Starlook LX600: Telescopes with autoguiders

LX600-12

The idea of equipping a telescope with a fixed camera for control reached its peak with the LX600 series. The camera is integrated into the telescope tube optics, with which the telescope remains very precisely oriented towards an object. This process, called autoguiding, is important for astrophotography.

Our offer:

  • ACF-SC 254/2032 Starlock LX600 currently at €5,609.00. You save €981.00.
  • ACF-SC 355/2845 Starlock LX600 currently at €9,120.00. You save €2080.00.

Both LX600 telescopes are assembled azimuthal. With the polar wedge they can, however, be set up parallactically for astrophotography too, with long exposure times. This wedge is also suitable for LX200 telescopes.

This offer remains while stock lasts – order now!

By the way: We don’t just do good deals; we offer the entire MEADE range, including an extensive array of accessories.

Good value set offer: Meade N 150/750 LX70 telescope

December 19 2017, Stefan Taube

The telescopes in the LX70 series by Meade have proven over many years to be good models for beginners. The basic set offered by Meade includes telescopes without motors and without pole finders.

So, we have put together a set that contains all these accessories: The Meade N 150/750 LX70 telescope set for only €699.00.

You save €279.00  compared with if you had bought all the items individually!

Meade_LX70

For this set, we opted for the Newton telescope with a 150-millimetre aperture, because we think that these optics make the ideal combination with this mount.

The LX70 telescope with Maksutov optics is over the budget of many beginners. The refractor has a very deep eyepiece for the LX70 mount. The Newton telescope with a 200-millimetre aperture  is a little heavy for the LX70 and has a relatively large leverage effect.

The N 150/750 LX70 telescope, however, is a well-matched system at a decent price! You can very easily use a camera for photographing the moon and the planets on this system. We are pleased to be able to offer the telescope as an entire package with really useful accessories at a very good price at the moment!
