Since I had issuing on the first attempt at using the Lunt telescope, I had to wait until the next clear day. This time I had a much better experience. I read that you had to not push the blocking filter all the way in. There was a holding screw so I opened it out and then didn’t push the blocking filter all the way in and then locked the hold screw in. I also set the the focusing ring to around half way.
This time I was able to get a crisp image. I didn’t have luck with the pressure tuning but there was some hazy so will try again on a perfectly clear day.
