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.
