Installing DSII on Lunt LS152Tha

Post by SpaceAholic » Sun Oct 29, 2017 6:21 pm

Within the last week picked up an LS152 with DSII / B3400 from Lunt (live just down the road from them in Tucson). This 152 has the internal blocking filter; the instructions accompanying the DSII appears oriented towards the older version that had the external blocking filter....

Questions for anybody on forum who has a similar setup in anticipation of installing the DSII module:

1. Can the DSII be installed prior to first light on the scope (i.e. does the single stack module need to be adjusted first without the DSII installed to determine its correct tuning prior adding the DSII, or can correct tuning from for both modules be established if both are initially detuned prior to first light)?

2. Could use an image of the doublestack sequence from a scope that already has the DS-II installed (or better yet shows the stacking process).

Thanks -
Scott

Bump...anybody out there who is able to assist?

The instructions for mounting the DSII provided by Lunt are poor at best, while everything else about the scope is top notch, their instructions are less stellar to include lack of illustrations and dated information that is seemingly inconsistant with the latest variant of their 152 Tha...
