Levenhuk Skyline 102x1000 AZ telescope is the most powerful achromatic refractor in Skyline series. The 102-mm objective lens allows the user to observe various celestial objects, ranging from the Moon and planets to gas nebulae. The focuser may be used with eyepieces of both 1.25'' and 2'' diameter, therefore allowing for wide field of view observations (wide-angle eyepieces are not included in the kit). That said, the telescope is still easy to use and reliable. It may also be used as a spotting scope for terrestrial observations.
The achromatic objective lens is fully multi-coated and provides maximum light gathering power. The aluminum tube is set up on an altazimuth mount with precision slow-motion controls that make it easy to navigate and follow an object. The adjustable height tripod has a practical accessory tray where you can store all your tools. The 6x magnification finder scope allows you to quickly navigate to the desired location. The kit includes 10-mm and 25-mm eyepieces with 52-deg field of view of 100x and 40x magnification respectively. The lenses are made of glass and are fully multi-coated. The rack-and-pinion focuser is made of stainless steel and accepts both 1.25'' (31.75 mm) and 2'' (50.8 mm) eyepieces; so you can use any eyepiece purchased separately - not just those supplied with the kit - therefore increasing the magnification to the highest practical power of 200x. The focuser has the standard T-thread, which allows you to attach an SLR camera using an adapter and use your telescope for astrophotography.
The Skyline series is for those who need a practical, reliable and a portable telescope for astronomical observations; and both the beginners and more experienced astronomers will find one of these models a perfect addition to their equipment.
