It is difficult to overestimate the capabilities of the Levenhuk Ra 300N Dobson telescope. With this telescope, you can see thousands of objects in the night sky, many of them in detail. Only the weather or an unfavorable state of the atmosphere can spoil the rendered picture. However, in good conditions, it will show many astronomical beauties. All objects of the NGC catalog, the Moon, planets of the Solar system with satellites, comets, etc. are available for observation. The telescope is ideal for conducting astronomy observations in the countryside and will be a good choice for both a beginner and an experienced astronomer.

Parabolic primary mirror with an aluminum coating

The primary mirror diameter is 300mm. It is parabolic, so optical distortion is minimized. The optics create a clear picture up to the maximum magnification. The aluminum coating has a reflectivity index of 92~96%. The optical component of this telescope is truly unrivaled. In addition, it features a dual-speed Crayford focuser so that the focus can be smoothly adjusted.

Active cooling of optics for faster temperature stabilization There is a cooling fan on the back of the telescope tube. It is used to speed up the process of temperature stabilization. Under normal conditions, it can take several hours for the optics to equalize with the ambient temperature. However, active cooling will almost halve this time. The fan is powered by batteries (purchased separately).

Dobsonian mount with an improved brake system side bearing for smooth tube movement

The Dobsonian mount has been significantly improved in comparison with the classic mounts of this type. A special high-rise bearing and balancing system allows you to move the optical tube smoothly. You can move the optical tube a few centimeters up or down when using heavy eyepieces or an optional finder. There are scales on the mount sides for convenient balancing. The bearings have a more robust design, and so they will run smoothly throughout their entire service life.

Quick start kit

Besides the optical tube and mount, the kit includes a 9mm eyepiece, 30mm eyepiece, and 8x50mm finder. They will allow you to start observations right away.

  • Newtonian reflector with a 300mm primary parabolic mirror

Dillon (2013-04-29 09:10): Positive
Ok I can see that it has cooling system, it's cool ;) but what about build quality and optics quality? I've seen some astrophotography test shots online and it seems that this scope provides images of very good quality, is it so? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Yes, the build and optics quality of the Levenhuk Ra 300N Dob telescope are on the high level as well as the quality of provided images.

Jaime (2013-04-12 08:49): Positive
What can I see through this telescope? The images will be inverted, am I correct? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Yes, provided images are inverted. With this telescope you can observe the following: Binary stars with the separation between their components of more than 0.5” Faint stars up to 15 stellar magnitude Lunar features of less than 1 mile size Details on Mars, Phobos and Deimos if you are lucky enough Details in the Jupiter atmosphere Encke Gap within the a ring of Saturn Neptune's largest moon Triton Pluto as a small faint star Thousands of galaxies, star clusters and nebulae Almost every NGC catalogue objects. You may be even able to discern colors of the brightest nebulae Don't forget that the atmospheric environment heavily affects the visibility of any given observed object.
