    Default Lunt LS60THa Double-Stacked Solar Telescope Pressure Tuned



    Sadly I must sell my setup. Have had it nearly 2 years and only used it twice. Near factory mint condition, only flaw I could see is a slight chip in the orange focuser.
    Comes in original boxes with everything pictured. Has been stored in these protective boxes indoors. This system is literally ready to go. Blocking filter is B12.
    As I understand it, this system goes for $2,900 new, plus shipping and likely a significant wait time. I am asking $2,600 which includes shipping in the USA. I will only accept a postal money orders for payment, or cash in person [Detroit suburbs]. Shipping will be tracked and insured fedex. You can PM me offers if you'd like, am not desperate or in a rush to sell, in fact it has taken me over 2 months just to bring myself to take pics and post this ad. I realize that thats pretty close to retail new, but you are getting it practically new, save a few $100, and months long wait time into a week. [I don't know, maybe some outfits have them in stock, I personally waited over 3 months for mine].
    Any questions feel free to ask, or PM for my phone #.

    I also have a very nice Ioptron mount that I won't be needing if interested. Very nice mount, was rock solid for me and easy to slew, and very portable. Amazon has the 3200 for $600 http://www.amazon.co...ptron-3200-Smar ... B00B9JPIO4 hipoint the 3100 for $400 iOptron Smart EQ Portable Go To German Equatorial Mount - 3100. Not sure which one I have, they both look like mine and there doesn't seem to be a model number on mine. So I will either want $275 or $450, depending on which one it is, and that also includes shipping unless you can pick it up.
    Don't know how many pics I can post but here are a few.

    Good luck Ted, that's a nice set up.
    I hope that you won't mind, but I've made mention of this in the Solar Imaging & Viewing Group.

    Thanks Till.

    I'll kick myself when/if it sells, and eventually will get another setup.
    As with anything else, you get back what you put in, and right now I just don't have the time to devote to this instrument to get the most out of it, and I won't for the foreseeable future. I'd like to get a 90 when I get back in, along with an imaging setup - That lies 2-3 years in the future.

    1 time price reduction to $2,500 which includes fedex tracked and insured shipping [likely $100+ right there] within USA - This is my bottom line on this package.
