Details

Levenhuk Skyline PRO 90 MAK is a catadioptric telescope of Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design. This design allows for a long focal distance - 1250 millimeters (49.2 inches) - to be encased in a tube only 25 centimeters (9.8 inches) long, which means that you can easily go stargazing in the countryside. The 90-millimeter (3.5-inch) aperture and long focal distance make this telescope perfect for high-powered planetary observations, and provide views of high quality. At medium power you can observe various deep-sky objects, such as nebulae and star clusters. This model is for those who do not want to worry about carrying cumbersome equipment to the countryside for observations, but still want to have a powerful tool for their observations. Besides, this telescope may be easily mounted on a regular tripod and - with an addition of an erecting prism - may become a powerful spotting scope for terrestrial observations.

The lenses and mirrors are fully multi-coated, which allows for maximum light-gathering and increases their service life. The sturdy and lightweight aluminum tube is set up on an equatorial mount with slow-motion controls. You can also install the equatorial computerized drive system (purchased separately) on your mount. It is equipped with setting circles which - after a quick adjustment - allow for locating objects by their celestial coordinates and tracking them with just a turn of an equatorial control. The adjustable height tripod has a practical accessory tray where you can store all your tools. The red dot finder scope allows you to quickly navigate to the desired location. The kit includes 10-millimeter (0.4-inch) and 20-millimeter (0.8-inch) eyepieces with 52-degree field of view of 125x and 62x magnification, respectively. The lenses are made of glass and are fully multi-coated. Focusing your telescope is as easy as adjusting the primary mirror with a move of the smooth-turning knob. This model accepts 1.25-inch (31.75-millimeter) eyepieces; so you can use eyepieces purchased separately - not just those supplied with the kit - therefore increasing the magnification to the highest practical power of 180x. The focuser has the standard T-thread, which allows you to attach an SLR camera using an adapter and use your telescope for astrophotography.

Levenhuk Skyline PRO series was designed for advanced and demanding astronomers and includes a range of different models. The one thing in common is maximum precision and reliability during observations and astrophotography, high-quality materials and optics.
