Solarmax 60 Mark 1 vs. Mark2

Hello together,

does sombody know if the Solarmax 60 front etalons have the same threat on the telescope side - so that one can interchange them without problems?

Thanks a lot!

Re: A few shots from last week Lunt 152 DSII

Hi Gordon, great shots! Did you quit your experimentation with the quark for doublestacking? Well I did so too and added a DS II System :) but it just always drives me crazy when thinking about the price of this piece of hardware with it´s "little" etalon! I mean I could get a used Coronado 90mm fro...

Re: Lunt LS60 DS vs. Solarscope Solarview 60 SS

For those interested... Meanwhile I gave away my Lunt LS60THa including the DS unit to finance another project. So finally in this class I go with the above mentioned Nr. 3: Solarscope SV60 + Coronado pre Maede SM60 for doublestacking. The loss is not very big - what I most prefered with the triple ...

Re: Lunt LS152 Calcium module - worth a try?

Hi Alexandra, :) - no I´m not 50 - not just 40... but maybe close ;) and I could see the CaK details - but the contrast wasn´t very good. Uncomfortable was, that I felt it was needed to look directly on the optical axis - a bit aside and details start to disapear I could´t describe it very well - wa...

Lunt LS152 Calcium module - worth a try?

Hi together, what do you think about the LS152 calcium module (which comes combined with a crayford focuser)? Is it still worth a try? or do I better go with a calcium quark these days? And do you know how big the Cak Blockfilter is in that thing? I can´t find anything about it in the net... is it a...

Re: Lunt 60 SS/DS or Lunt 80 SS/DS?

Hi Roberto, the blocking filter unit was modified with another blue-glas and a tiltable blocking filter frame (therefore is that little silver lever you can see in one of the pics). The changed blue-glas gives a brighter view which is very usefull if using the scope as doublestack system with a seco...

Re: Lunt LS60 DS vs. Solarscope Solarview 60 SS

Hi, today some sun spots between a lot of clouds... but enough to do some testing and watching :) Unfortunately the triple (Solarscope + Lunt + Solarmax) works not as good as the triple with the Lunt LS60. With the Solarview the view is just dimmer as in double stack but did not show more details......

Re: Lunt LS60 DS vs. Solarscope Solarview 60 SS

When I tried it first I wasn´t hoping to get any real advantage of the triple-setup. Then the view was just breathtaking - just the way I always hoped for visual watching - especially when theres so much action on the surface as last sunday. Very interesting was that the prominences was very good to...

Re: Triple Stack Trials and Tribulations - 30th January

Hi Mark,

I read you use only one ERF on your triple... well at my setup still all three of them are in action... so definetely something to optimize... ;)

Could you maybe post some pics of your setup? would be very interesting.

Cheers

Hi Valery, interesting... - maybe depends on the etalons??? I could imagine that if you´ve very well filters that cut the H-Alpha wavelength very good the third etalon will not give any advantage anymore... - but only my guess...?!?!? I can only describe what I saw: "triple" clearly better then "dou...

Well, a interesting thing I found (but beware - I just used the system once... so I´m not too sure about that) is - that the effect of straylight and the position of the tilting systems does have a smaler influence on a triple system then on the double or single stack system - I don´t now why...

200% Solarscope! as grab&go it is a much, much, much better system then any PST ever can be!

Hi Achim, if you had a LS60 better then a SV60 you are a very lucky man :) Until now I could test two LS60´s directly next to the SV60. Both Lunts where nearly equal so I would guess they represent the standard - and both where good. But as mentioned above in SS the Solarscope could do everything ju...

yea will try it with the Skyris when the sun comes out again... Today I just put my Canon G9 behind the zoom ocular but the results wasn´t that good as I hoped for... But visually it gives all one can hope for :)
