Andy Lunt, son of the late David Lunt

who founded Coronado Technology Group, is carrying on a family

tradition with the launch of Lunt Solar Systems, a company dedicated

to producing affordable solar telescopes and filters. The LS35TH?

($499) is a hydrogen-alpha telescope that breaks new ground for a

compact system that can show the Sun’s prominences and delicate

surface detail. Featuring a full-aperture, 35-mm etalon, the system

has a bandpass narrower than 0.75 angstrom, and it comes with a

mounting bracket and diagonal — just add a tripod and eyepiece and

you’re ready to enjoy our nearest star.'s New Product Showcase is a

reader service featuring innovative equipment and software of

interest to amateur astronomers. The descriptions are based largely

on information supplied by the manufacturers or distributors. Sky
