Description

The Levenhuk Skyline PLUS 80S Telescope is a telescope for experienced and demanding customers. This Newtonian reflector works perfectly for observing deep-sky objects: you can observe all of the objects in the Messier catalogue and the brightest objects in the NGC catalogue. Dozens of star clusters, planetary, and diffuse nebulae are available for observation. Outer space is available for exploring as well, including lunar craters, the rings of Saturn, atmospheric vortices on Jupiter, weather features of Mars, phases of Mercury, etc. Even Uranus and Neptune are discernible as small disks.

The optics in the telescope are made of fully coated glass. The included accessories are chosen in such a way as to ultimately use the capabilities of the optics. Using two eyepieces and a Barlow lens, you can achieve the highest practical power, which allows for observing astronomy objects as detailed and sharp as possible, or, on the contrary, you can use a wide field of view for observing extended deep-sky objects. A balanced telescope kit helps to avoid buying additional accessories.

The telescope is mounted on an equatorial mount. It allows for tracking astronomy objects in the sky; however, it takes some time to master the operation of the telescope. A mount is attached to an aluminum tripod. You can place it almost anywhere because the leg height is adjustable in a wide range. There is an accessory tray.
