50MM H-ALPHA PRESSURE TUNED SOLAR TELESCOPE
Walkthrough of the Lunt 50mm H-Alpha Pressure Tuned Solar Telescope. Learn about this telescope and which options are right for you for:
- Blocking Filters
- Dovetail Mount
All Lunt 50mm h-alpha Solar Telescope Systems require a Lunt Blocking Filter!
Which blocking filter is right for you?
B400 – for visual use
B600 – for larger field of view/imaging
Add the specially-designed LS50C compact double stack filter (sold separately) and lower the bandpass to less than <0.5 Angstroms.

The Lunt 50mm comes complete with the basic essentials and is equipped with pressure tuning technology; lauded as the newest and ultimate technology for fine tuning, the pressure tuning allows beginners and professionals alike to delve into and research the Sun’s disk and surface details.
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.
