Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ is a Newtonian reflecting telescope. Its mirrors produce no chromatic aberration, which may be especially noticeable during observations of brighter objects with a refracting telescope. The long focal length of this telescope makes it the perfect choice for observations of planets, features of the lunar surface and binary stars. The large, 114-mm primary mirror gathers so much light (2.25 times more than its 76-mm counterpart) that this telescope produces very detailed views of bright deep-sky objects. Additionally – thanks to the capabilities of this telescope – you can even try your hand at astrophotography. The equatorial mount that comes with Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ makes this telescope even more practical and precise. Overall, this instrument will make a wonderful addition to the equipment of any amateur stargazer.

Features:

  • Suitable deep sky objects study: nebulae, galaxies, globular clusters and faint stars;
  • Fairly small overall dimensions for the focal length of 1000 millimeters (39.4 inches);
  • Contrast and sharp images without distortion;
  • Can be used for astrophotography.

The kit includes:

  • Telescope optical tube (optical elements inside)
  • SUPER 25 and SUPER 10 eyepieces
  • Equatorial mount EQ1
  • Aluminum tripod
  • 2x Barlow lens
  • User manual and lifetime warranty

Please note that the Levenhuk Skyline EQ user manual is also available in Spanish.

Hello! How to revert upside-down images? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Newtonian reflector is not really suitable for terrestrial viewing, but, you can try fix image orientation with an erecting eyepiece.

Justin Gross (2016-08-06 05:35): Positive
I tried 3.6, 10 and 25, but mostly observed with 25mm as image quality is better with it Levenhuk Customer Service:
To get even more detailed and quality pictures you will have to get another telescope model, with larger aperture.

Luke Chase (2016-07-25 03:50): Positive

With the help of this telescope you will be able to observe: binary stars with angular separation of over 1.5", faint stars (up to 12 stellar magnitude); structure of sunspots, granulation and solar flares (with an aperture filter); phases of Mercury; lunar craters (5 km in diameter); polar ice caps and maria on Mars during oppositions; clearer view of atmospheric bands on Jupiter and the GRS, shadows cast by moons onto the planetary disk; Cassini Division in the rings of Saturn and 4-5 moons; Uranus and Neptune as small disks with no details; tens of globular clusters, bright globular clusters are resolved into cosmic dust at the edges; tens of planetary and diffuse nebulae and all Messier objects; brightest objects from NGC; some details are resolved on the brightest and largest objects; details are not resolved during observations of most galaxies. Is there any additional information you might need? Looking forward to your reply.

Jake Pineda (2015-07-15 08:21): Positive
What is the highest useful magnification of the instrument? Can I obtain, let's say, 400x using additional accessories? The telescope is great! love it! Levenhuk Customer Service:
The maximum useful magnification of the Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ telescope is 228x, we do not recommend exceeding this value, doing otherwise will lead to a significant image quality loss.

Jack O'Hara (2015-07-05 03:58): Positive
Does the Skyline 120x1000 EQ come with the primary mirror already center spotted? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Dear Jack, thank you for interest in Levenhuk products. All our telescopes comes with a manufacture's adjustment. But as it is a reflector type, the mirrors inside need adjustments, from time to time. Is there any additional information you might need?

Neal Odom (2015-06-30 10:52): Positive
Hi! Which eyepiece I need to obtain the highest power? Levenhuk Customer Service:
To get Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ to its highest practical power of 228x you need a 5-mm eyepiece.

Neal Odom (2015-06-30 10:41): Positive
Hi! Can I use Panasonic FZ 62 Lumix for making photos, videos? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Theoretically, you can use this camera with Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ, but we do not have suitable adapters in our product range.

Pete Burks (2015-06-16 07:01): Positive
Hi, I bought T-ring for canon cameras. How do I install it? Levenhuk Customer Service:

Hello! What telescope case is suitable for this telescope? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Zongo 80 Telescope Case; Large, Blue (https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-zongo-80-telescope-case/) is suitable for Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope.

Lynn Walters (2015-05-09 01:53): Positive
Could you please help me to make the right choice? I need a telescope for a person with zero experience. I'm planning to observe in the countryside. I want to observe the Moon, planets and other bright objects. Generally I like Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ. Is it ok for me? As I understood, reflectors blur images a little so they are not so great for planetary observations... Could you suggest something? Thank you! Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope is perfect for you. This model is designed for beginners. The telescope has a very high optical quality. Reflectors do not blur images (though it might happen if you observe in the city with its high level of light pollution). With Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope you will be able to observe Solar System planets as well as deep-sky objects.

Selina (2015-04-24 12:09): Positive
Hi! Does the kit include solar and lunar filters? Do you have them in the store? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Solar and lunar filters are not included in the kit with Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope. These accessories can be purchased separately. Levenhuk Solar Filter for 114mm Reflector Telescopes (https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-solar-filter-for-114mm-reflector-telescopes/) costs only $32.95. Find Levenhuk lunar filter in this section: https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/lunar-planetary-filters/.

Nick Wolfe (2015-03-21 09:40): Positive
Hello! I just have some doubts about the telescope's highest practical power... why 230x? Focal length which is 1000mm divided by 10 (10mm eyepiece) and then multiplied by 2 (2x Barlow) equals 200x. Where did you get +30? Levenhuk Customer Service:
The highest practical power is calculated as follows: objective lens diameter * 2. Hence, 114mm * 2 = 228x. Your formula is also correct but this number is the telescope's highest practical power with this particular eyepiece (in your case 10 mm).

Danna Keller (2015-03-16 08:00): Positive
what kind of coating is on the mirror? how to treat the optics? Levenhuk Customer Service:
The primary and secondary mirrors of the Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope have special coatings that protect the reflective layer from darkening. To maintain the optics in good condition we recommend using special optics cleaning tools that you can find in this catalog section: https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/optics-cleaning/.

Jena Chandler (2015-03-05 08:34): Positive
Is Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ suitable for observing stars? Levenhuk Customer Service:
With Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope you will be able to observe the following celestial objects: The Moon, planets and their moons: Structure of sunspots, phases of Mercury, lunar canyons and craters (5.5 km in diameter), polar ice caps on Mars, as well as highlands during oppositions, more atmospheric bands of Jupiter, shadows from its moons on the planetary disk, Cassini Division in the rings of Saturn and five of its moons, Uranus and Neptune as tiny disks. Stars: Binary stars with angular separation of 1.5"", faint stars up to 12 stellar magnitude. Nebulae, galaxies and star clusters: Tens of globular clusters, diffuse and planetary nebulae, galaxies. All of Messier objects, the brightest NGC objects under good conditions, features of bright nebulae, galaxies, however, are viewed as bleak gray spots.

Isaac Holley (2015-01-31 02:09): Positive
It uses spherical mirror, right? I read somewhere that there is a special lens installed in focusers of small telescope tubes, which is supposed to correct for spherical aberration. But this trick doesn't really work, and it just results in low image quality (blurry images) when observing with high and even medium magnifications. Is that true? Levenhuk Customer Service:
The optical design of the Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ telescope includes spherical concave high-aperture mirror which is hidden inside the optical tube. The telescope provides high-quality images even when observing with medium and high magnifications.

Leslie Avery (2014-12-06 06:33): Positive
Hi! What accessories come in the kit with this telescope? Levenhuk Customer Service:
The kit of the Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ telescope includes SUPER 25 and SUPER 10 eyepieces.

Leo Kane (2014-11-22 12:15): Positive
Which telescope is better in terms of price / quality: Levenhuk Ra 200N F5 OTA or Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ? and which one is better suited for observations in the city? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Ra 200N F5 OTA provides higher magnification and better image quality due to large objective lens diameter. Both models are not the best possible choice for observations under urban conditions. We recommend you consider Levenhuk Skyline 70x900 EQ Telescope - https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/telescopes/levenhuk-skyline-70x900-eq/.

mitch zeller (2014-05-30 01:17): Positive
Hi! Two models - this one and Levenhuk Strike 90 PLUS... which one to choose? I'd like to observe planets and satellites (the Moon, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter). And one more thing... what else should I buy to get 'terrestrial' images? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Strike 90 PLUS is more suitable for planetary observations due to refracting optical design. To get terrestrial images you need an accessory called erecting prism.

Anna Cronin (2014-05-26 11:14): Positive
Is this model suitable for observations in the city? Or maybe any other options? With approximately same magnification power and price please. Levenhuk Customer Service:
Newtonian telescopes are not suitable for observing in the city as they are not quite able to suppress urban light pollution. Please, consider Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ Telescope - https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/telescopes/levenhuk-skyline-90x900-eq/

Pamela Thompson (2014-04-26 08:25): Positive

Ashley Patterson (2014-02-25 07:46): Positive
Hi. I need help! You see I'm a beginner and I want to buy a telescope, but I don't know which one is better: Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ or Levenhuk Skyline 130x900 EQ. I need it for the city, but also I'd like to have an opportunity to use it as a spotting scope outside the city. so which one is better? Levenhuk Customer Service:
These models are not the best choice for your purposes. They are more suitable for deep-sky observations in the countryside and they don't provide erect images. Please take a look at the Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ telescope instead: https://www.levenhuk.com/products/levenhuk_skyline_90_900eq/

Jim (2013-12-16 08:53): Positive
Please suggest a good telescope under $200 Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ would be the most powerful telescope in this price range.

LEON (2013-11-30 09:46): Positive
Hello! I want to buy this telescope for my son. But before I place the order, I would like to know what else you have to offer in this price range. We will observe in the countryside, I want it to be as they say "to grow into" for my son ))) Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ telescope is an excellent choice for observing in the countyside! In this price range also consider this model: https://www.levenhuk.com/products/telescope-levenhuk-strike-90-plus/

Bashar A (2013-11-18 02:44): Positive
Does this Telescope comes with a bag or just a box? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Dear Bashar A, thank you for interest in Levenhuk products! The telescope comes in a box. Is there any additional information you might need? Looking forward to your reply.

Eli Williams (2013-09-14 03:58): Positive
sorry, I was mistaken in my previous comment. The image is upside down and left-to-right. So another question. Can I use a diagonal mirror and erecting prism to get direct image? Thank you. Levenhuk Customer Service:
No, to get direct images you will need an erecting eyepiece, but we do not have it in our product range at the moment.

Eli Williams (2013-09-14 03:47): Positive
And one more question... I figured out that thanks to its built-in Barlow Lens the image is reversed but not mirrored. So what do I need to buy to turn it into the right position?? Thank you in advance. Levenhuk Customer Service:
The image is reversed from left to right and upside-down as in all refractors.

Eli Williams (2013-09-12 08:07): Positive
Thank you for your reply. I bought this model + eyepiece 6.5 mm. I'll be testing it. I guess, for a beginner it would be great. Maybe in a year I will take something more serious. I'm already looking at catadioptric telescopes such as Levenhuk Skyline PRO 127 MAK EQ. Is it worth it? Or it's reasonable to take smth more powerful among reflectors? What can you advise? money is not an issue Levenhuk Customer Service:
Catadioptric telescopes are easy to use and perfect for deep-sky observing as well as for planetary observations and astrophotography. In this case, you should take a look at Levenhuk Skyline PRO 150 MAK: https://www.levenhuk.com/products/levenhuk-skyline-pro-150mak/

Eli Williams (2013-09-11 12:30): Positive
Good afternoon! Tell me, please, how much worse is the image quality with the Barlow lens? Which one of two telescopes (this one and Celesctron PowerSeeker 114 EQ) will produce more detailed and quality images? Is it difficult to maintain this telescope compared to a reflector (how often it requires adjustment and so on)? Can I observe terrestrial objects with this model? Levenhuk Customer Service:
The Barlow lens won't affect image quality. These two telescopes have the same objective lens diameter (i.e., the same magnification power), but The Celestron PowerSeeker 114 EQ has a larger focal length and comes with a 4 mm eyepiece. With its help you can achieve the telescope's highest practical power. The telescope's tube is always open, so there's a chance of dust settling. You can clean it with the compressed air duster: https://www.levenhuk.com/products/acc_levenhuk_air_duster/ With careful handling, that's enough to adjust this telescope a few times a year.

Joe Neel (2013-08-28 02:05): Positive
Hello! I'm really interested in this model. But as a beginner, I do not know anything. The question is can I see planets such as Jupiter, Mars, Saturn...? And what the image orientation will be? reversed? It says: "Highest practical power, x: 230', under 230x magnification will the image be sharp? and if no, then what will I need for that? do prices change with time? like once a year? and also tell me, how much does delivery cost (I live in Chicago)?? Thank you!!! Levenhuk Customer Service:
Yes, it's possible to observe Jupiter, Mars and Saturn with Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ. The image will be upside-down as in all reflectors. Yes, the image will be sharp. Our prices do change once in a while; at this moment you can see the current offer on this product. You will be able to see the shipping cost during checkout prior order confirmation.

Shelly (2013-08-16 09:56): Positive
so is it 114 or 120 mm? What comes in the kit? Is it possible to connect a Canon camera? Levenhuk Customer Service:
1. The aperture of Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ is 114 mm. 2. The kit includes: the telescope tube, finderscope, tripod, equatorial mount, eyepieces SUPER 10 mm and SUPER 25 mm. 3. You will need a T-ring.

Stephen (2013-08-10 12:25): Positive
I just don't understand one thing! Why on the tag I see '120mm aperture' and the same thing I was told when I bought this telescope, but if I measure it there's only 114 mm. And about the mirror it's better not to write at all... Levenhuk Customer Service:
We are truly sorry about that, there was a mistake in the product's description. The telescope Levevnhuk Skyline 120x100 has the objective lens diameter of 114 mm. The information on the website has been updated.

Kelly (2013-08-08 11:04): Positive
Could you tell me what is the 'red dot finder' from the product's description? Is there this model without this option or with something else instead? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Sure, this model can be equipped with an average optical view finder. Just mention that you want this model with an optical finder in the comment, while ordering it.

Henry OBrien (2013-07-20 05:19): Positive
I have one more question. What eyepieces/lenses should I use to obtain maximum magnification? Levenhuk Customer Service:
To obtain the maximum useful magnification we recommend an eyepiece of 4.2 mm focal length, but, unfortunately, we currently don't have that in our product range.

RachelSemple (2013-07-14 02:48): Positive
Hello, is it possible to install the telescope drives on both axes (for astrophoto), advise any drives please Levenhuk Customer Service:

I am interested in getting the Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope but no very little about telescopes. Would this be a good one to get as my first? One thing I have heard is that some telescopes flip and reverse the image which I do not want. I am mainly wanting it for close observance of the moon so it is important to me to have the correct image orientation but I will also use it for planetary observation but not necessarily deep, deep space. Please advise. Thank you! Levenhuk Customer Service:
Hello Joe, thank you for your interest in Levenhuk products! Yes, Newtonian telescopes have reversed image from left to right and top-down. So if you do not like it, it is better to consider buying a refractor telescope, which will have the reversed image from left to right only. In that way the refractor telescope is suitable for both astronomical and terrestrial observations. I'd recommend to consider buying the Levenhuk Skyline 70x900 EQ Telescope, which you can find online here:https://www.levenhuk.com/products/levenhuk_skyline_70_900EQ/. With this telescope you will be able to observe mountains and craters on the moon, the phases of Venus, Jupiter's disk with cloud bands and its four satellites, the rings of Saturn and Titan, binary stars and star clusters, as well as bright nebulae and galaxies.Is there any additional information you might need? Looking forwad to your reply.

Please, tell me, what adapter ring should I buy for Nikon D3100? We measured one in the store but it didn't fit. (as I think, it is only for Nikon 5xxx models). Levenhuk Customer Service:
You will need a T-ring for Nikon cameras.

Hello! Tell me, please, did I get it right? This telescope is perfect for deep-sky observing under urban conditions? And at the same time it is good for observations of Solar System's planets with an option to take pictures. If it's not true, what telescope (200-250$) would you recommend for star and planets observing in the city? Levenhuk Customer Service:
We recommend the Levenhuk Skyline PRO 80 MAK Telescope: https://www.levenhuk.com/products/levenhuk-skyline-pro-80mak/

How is it possible that this telescope has 46 cm tube length and the focal length of 1000 mm? Levenhuk Customer Service:
It's possible thanks to a built-in Barlow lens.

Alexander, did you buy any additional eyepieces? I bought 6.5 mm and 5 mm and I can perfectly see Jupiter even in the city with a high level of light pollution. It's not that big of course but its strings can be detected and the satellites are seen too. I'm really satisfied with this telescope, but I'm becoming an advanced stargazer:) so I've been thinking of purchasing something more impressive. Levenhuk Customer Service:
Thank you for your feedback!

Hello! I bought this telescope last month but I didn't have a chance to use it, so here's a question... where I should keep it? The terrace (the glazed one) will be fine? Or it's better to keep it inside the house? Levenhuk Customer Service:
