I have Lunt 35mm hydrogen alpha solar scope that I am willing to lend out to any club members who has been a member for at least one year. I picked up this scope used. Scope is on Vixen dovetail. This is a very basic hydrogen alpha scope. You can see prominences and some surface detail .I may eventually donate this scope to club. Contact me if interested.

It looks like this is a good place to create a list for people wanting to use scope.
A month at a time sounds good?
Club meeting to club meeting?
I recommend using an eyepiece 8 mm to 20 mm. I like around 10- 12 the best. It all depends upon seeing conditions. Which is generally best early morning.

Thats a good idea Bill. We can create a message board page for our clubs loaner telescopes and books/CD's for members to log a request for items.

Thanks!
