The LS80MT solar telescopes can be upgraded with optional Lunt LS80MTBP&F Conversion Kit. This allows the telescopes to be used as 2-lens ED apochromatic refractor for observation and photography of the starry night sky.
The H-Alpha system of the LS80MT telescopes can be easily replaced by this conversion kit. The conversion kit offers a high quality and solid R&P focuser. Even the heaviest cameras or other accessories will be hold without any problems and can be focused sensitively by the integrated 10:1 reduction.
Simply loosen three knurled screws holding the H-Alpha unit including the focuser at the LS80MT. Attach here the new focuser, and your LS80MT is transformed into a 2-lens apochromatic telescope. The new focuser offers 85mm focusing way with backlash- and tilt-free mechanics also when using heavy accessories. A 2 inch clamp is directly at the focuser, and an adapter to 1.25 inch is included in delivery.
But this is not all: With this conversion kit Herschel-wedges or Ca-K modules can be used at the LS80MT telescopes for solar observation. This makes it possible to observe the sun in H-alpha, in Calcium-K wavelength light, or in White-Light - with one and the same telescope!
This conversion kit turns the LS80MT into a real all-round telescope!
