The Newtonian optical design of Levenhuk Skyline 76x700 AZ reflector is one of the oldest and most popular optical designs. This telescope is a perfect choice for amateur stargazers embarking on their first journey through the mysteries of the universe. Levenhuk Skyline 76x700 AZ is very easy to set up and use, yet it still yields high-quality views of observed objects and, more importantly, it comes at a very reasonable price. The optical design of this telescope eliminates chromatic aberration, which is common in most refracting telescopes and is especially noticeable during observations of brighter objects. The Levenhuk Skyline 76x700 AZ kit includes everything you will need to begin your observations. The 76-mm primary mirror gathers up to 100 times more light than the naked eye, and is capable of showing you many objects in the Solar System and beyond: lunar craters and maria, phases of Venus, the planetary disk of Jupiter and four of its moons, rings of Saturn, Titan, binary stars and star clusters, and even bright nebulae and galaxies.
Telescope mirrors have special protective coatings that ensure long service life of the instrument. The durable and lightweight optical tube is attached to an altazimuth mount with intuitive manual controls, and the tripod may be adjusted to height. The 6x optical finderscope allows you to easily navigate to the desired celestial object and center it in your view. The telescope kit includes two eyepieces with focal lengths of 10 and 25 mm and field of view of 52°. When attached to the optical tube, these eyepieces yield 70x and 28x magnifications respectively. Glass lenses on both eyepieces are fully multi-coated for additional clarity and sharpness of produced views. The linear focuser has a barrel diameter of 1.25", which allows you to use a variety of accessories available on the market today – you can even use other eyepieces with this telescope, so that the assembly yields higher magnifications (keep in mind, however, that the highest practical power of this telescope is 150x).
The Skyline series was designed for stargazers, looking for a lightweight and easy-to-use instrument for visual observations. Amateur stargazers and experienced observers alike are sure to be pleased with the capabilities and expansive kits of Skyline telescopes.
