Levenhuk Skyline 80x400 AZ Telescope
Refractor. Objective lens diameter: 80 mm. Focal length: 400 mm.
Levenhuk Skyline 80x400 AZ provides an opportunity to never stop your astronomical and terrestrial observations, no matter where you are. Due to the "shortened" focal length (400 millimeters, 15.8 inches), it has a very compact set size which makes it convenient for transportation. You might even be able to take it on board during air travel! At the same time, this refractor has high optical performance. An aperture of 80 millimeters (3.15 inches) makes it possible to collect enough light to observe not only the planets and their satellites, but also the globular clusters and nebulae. Moreover, thanks to the high resolution (1.5''), all the observed objects will look sharp and detailed. Therefore, it can also be used for observing double stars. With this telescope you will be immersed in researching the structure of sunspots, lunar craters, seasons change on Mars, and much more. Under good conditions the telescope can help you see Messier objects and some of the brighter NGC.
- The telescope has a factory default adjustment and does not require additional and frequent adjustment;
- Contrast and sharp images in high resolution without chromatic aberration;
- Can be used for photographing the Moon and planets;
- Suitable for both terrestrial and astronomical observations;
- Ideal for planetary observations and observations of binary stars;
- Suitable for beginners.
The telescope is mounted on a powerful and stable mount AZ3, which is well suited for medium-sized telescopes. The mount has a clamp and a mechanism for subtle movements along the vertical and horizontal axes. It is convenient for conducting ground-based observations, and can be successfully used for astronomy. Its primary advantage is its light weight. the aluminum tripod has a height adjustment.
Two achromatic eyepieces SUPER 10 and SUPER 25 with a 1.25-inch (31.75-millimeter) diameter are included in the package and serve as powerful image correction tools. The optics used in the eyepiece are glass with a special coating. The field of view is 50-52 degrees.
