LUNT LS60THa DETAILS

Frankly, I'm kinda shocked at the lack of technical details that came with my Lunt telescope. Yes, there may be craploads of stuff on the Net, but that really doesn't justify two pages of copied text stapled together purporting to be an owners manual. On top of that there really aren't many technical details on the Lunt website, either. A couple drawings with some measurements would have gone a long way towards being able to figure out things to buy, or things that needed to be made before the scope arrived.

I've thrown together a few details here and will add random stuff as the world turns.

These bolts are not tightened. When I wrote to Lunt about them this is what they said:

You can start by tightening them all the way and undoing them 3 turns to see if that is enough travel to go through the tuning point for your elevation. If you need more travel loosen them equally. The tighter they are the less travel (tilt) you have the more loose they are you will have more travel (tilt). It is best to go with the least amount of travel needed so that the etalon cavity does not touch the ERF cell internally.

I don't remember reading that in the manual.
