The Lunt LS50THa Solar Telescope, complete with a Pressure Tuner,  provides the basic essentials perfect for a first time introduction to solar observing.  Also it including the newest technology for fine tuning, allowing basic research of the Sun’s disk and some surface details.

Doppler Tuning

True Doppler Tuning (Pressure Tuning) allows for a shift into and away from the user. Amazingly, this adds a 3D-like component to the viewing experience. Meanwhile it has minimal effect on proms due to their being at the edge of the disk, it does have an effect on filaments and active regions on the surface. Also, when looking at a filament at the center of the Sun, the user has the ability to Doppler shift from the base of the filament to the tip. Therefore, you’ll be able to follow the filament through it’s structure toward you and away from you.  All of this allows for enhanced visual and imaging capability for the observer as well as a research tool for the avid hobbyist. Most importantly, the pressure tuning system provides an order of magnitude more precision to the tuning of the desired features.

Helical focuser

I’d love to say I’m happy but in fact I can’t even use it due to the poor quality of the focuser that comes stock, I had heard that the focuser was not the best but it’s down right unusable and for me that is a big disappointment. I primarily use only helical focusers and they have done me well. This one though is such trash that I can’t even test out my new scope. Lunt should consider fixing the issue either by just eliminating the model that comes with that focuser or by getting a stock focuser that works atleast good enough to test and use the scope they sell. At this point I’m just frustrated. They are shipping me a new focuser, the same crap that came with my scope. Maybe it will function better but I seriously doubt it. For making such quality instruments I’d think they would invest into a better stock focuser for their scopes. Other then that your service was excellent and thank you

Fantastic Ha telescope

I've been using different telescopes for over 40 years. In the past I've only used white light filters to observe the sun so using this telescope is a revelation for me. It took me a while to get used to but the results are literally 'out of this world'.

It's easy to use and I'm glad I can upgrade it without having to buy a new system. I've already recommended this telescope to fellow amateur astronomers who I'm sure will enjoy it as much as I do.

Great customer service

The support staff at Stargazing telescopes directed me to this telescope. As an amateur astronomer, I wasn't sure which telescope would be suitable for my purposes and this one is perfect. It's great for beginners and the best part is that I can upgrade it when I'm ready to progress on my journey of solar viewing.
