Lunt blocking filter question

I have been using an LS 60 PT with a coronado 10 mm blocking filter for about 2 years now and find the view through the coronado BF brighter and more detailed (especially on surface detail) compared to the Lunt BF 1200.I have 2 coronado BF 10s and the view through both is the same.

Thanks

Re: Pressure tuned Lunt and temperature

I observe at an elevation of 1050 meters and at temperatures between -5 to 30 degrees with the Ls 60 PT and do not notice much variation due to temperature. In that temperature range the PT tuner is almost completely all the way in with no threads showing,with no detail (apart from sunspots) showing...
