Levenhuk Skyline Travel Sun 70 Telescope
Refractor. Objective lens diameter: 70 mm. Focal length: 400 mm

Levenhuk Skyline Travel Sun 70 Telescope is a high-aperture refractor with a 70 mm aperture. This portable optical tool features a lightweight and shortened tube. The kit includes a convenient branded backpack for a telescope – it is large enough for an optical tube, a mount, a tripod, and all necessary accessories.

This telescope is perfect for observing the planets of the Solar system and the Moon. On a clear night with low light pollution, you will be able to observe many of the Messier objects (details will be invisible), dim stars of up to 11.5 magnitude, large globular and open clusters, and double stars (for example, Mizar and Albireo).

You can also observe the Sun with this compact refractor – for this purpose the telescope is equipped with a solar filter that comes in the kit. The solar filter will be useful for observing sunspots on a fine day. You must be very careful when observing solar activity. Always make sure a solar filter is securely attached to the telescope tube. The filter must completely cover the aperture. When observing the Sun, cover the finder scope with a protective cap or remove the finder scope to prevent accidental damage to your eyes.

The kit includes all necessary accessories – you can start observing right after unboxing the telescope. There are 67x and 20x eyepieces, a 3x Barlow lens, a diagonal prism and a solar filter supplied in the kit. You can obtain 200x magnification with included eyepieces and a Barlow lens. This telescope comes with a 5x24 finder scope.

The refractor is mounted on a lightweight and compact altazimuth mount. The telescope moves along vertical and horizontal axes with the help of a special handle. Such mounts do not require observers to have special skills. A school child as well as a grown-up astronomy enthusiast will learn how to operate the telescope in one night. The mount is installed on an aluminum tripod that can vary in height from 40 cm to 125 cm.
