Levenhuk Skyline PLUS 90 MAK Telescope
The Levenhuk Skyline PLUS 90 MAK Telescope is a compact optical tool for exploring outer space and deep sky. It is excellent for customers with little experience in astronomy observations who are ready for more advanced scientific research. It is a rather simple-to-use telescope, but with more capabilities than entry-level models. It allows for observing the Moon, planets as far as Saturn and their satellites. The far limits of the solar system are discernible, except for the details. You can observe the brightest objects of the NGC catalogue, double stars, all the objects from the Messier catalogue as well as planetary and diffuse nebulae.
The telescope uses a catadioptric scheme, it is small and lightweight, and features perfect optical capabilities. Due to fully multi-coated optics, this catadioptric telescope gathers much light, which allows for observing dim stars and other dim objects in the night sky. The kit includes two eyepieces that provide average magnification. A diagonal mirror is used for observing terrestrial landscapes: it would be inconvenient to conduct observations without it.
An equatorial mount means that the accurate tracking of astronomy objects requires less effort. These celestial objects do not run away even during lengthy observations. The mount is attached to an aluminum tripod with an accessory tray. It is stable and durable. The height of each tripod leg is adjusted individually so that the telescope can be mounted on almost any surface.
