Product Details

The Lunt LS50FHa is a 50mm aperture (no central obstruction) integrally tuned etalon for use on any customer supplied refractor.

These Hydrogen-alpha Filters are designed to retrofit (adapters required) the customer supplied telescope for use during the day. They are easily removable so that the scope can continue to be used for night observing.

Because the LS50FHa has an estimated bandpass of <0.70 Angstroms it is capable of providing high contrast views of both surface and edge detail. Adding an additional etalon (double-stacking) will reduce the bandpass to ~<0.50 (dependent upon scope) allowing for higher resolution viewing and/or imaging. The part number LS50FHa is offered for this purpose or for those who already have a Lunt blocking filter. A Lunt blocking filter must be used with Lunt Ha filters at all times.

LS50FHa Specifications: (single filter)

  • Optical Aperture: 50mm
  • Etalon: Internal

Required Accessories:
