The addition of a secondary front-mounted interference filter transforms the Lunt LS60THa into a superb, visually enhanced instrument with the ability to also image the Sun utilizing basic camera equipment.
Adding the front filter provides a view of the Sun in virtual 3D. An active ball of churning boiling gasses that spew from the surface in what can be violent eruptions. Cause and effect can be viewed and imaged in real time.

Great little Solar ScopePros: Cons: Comments:
I've been using a Quark Chromosphere for the last year and it did a good job, but I got tired of waiting for the heater to adjust to the right wavelength. I got the 60mm Lunt Double Stack and I love the immediate gratification when tuning the wavelength. I set it up the other day in single stack mode and thought that maybe I should have saved some money and just got the single stack as the view was really nice. I added the second Etalon and the surface detail really popped. Glad I got the double stack.
