Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ is a refractor with a large aperture. You will be able to see planets, double stars, globular clusters and diffuse nebulae. Uranus and Neptune appear in the form of small disks, but closer planets will be visible in more detail. For example, you will be able to distinguish Mars’ polar caps, the structure of sunspots and granulation on the Sun. Also, the telescope is good for lunar exploration if you want to see the craters. Under good conditions, all the Messier objects and bright NGC can be observed. The model is suitable for astrophotography.
- The telescope has a factory default adjustment and does not require additional and frequent adjustment;
- Contrast and sharp images in high resolution without chromatic aberration;
- Highly detailed pictures even at large aperture;
- Can be used for photographing the Moon and planets;
- Suitable for both terrestrial and astronomical observations;
- Ideal for planetary observations and observations of binary stars;
- Suitable for beginners.
The kit includes:
- Telescope optical tube (optical elements inside)
- SUPER 25 and SUPER 10 eyepieces
- Equatorial mount EQ2
- Aluminum tripod
- Diagonal mirror
- User manual and lifetime warranty
The equatorial mount, as opposed to an azimuth one, when being hovered compensates for the rotation of the Earth and allows more precise tracking of astronomical objects, keeping them within sight through the eyepiece. This mount is perfect for astronomical observations and indispensable for astrophotography. The aluminum tripod has adjustable height.
Two achromatic eyepieces SUPER 10 and SUPER 25 with a 31.75-millimeter (1.25-inch) diameter are included in the package and serve as powerful image correction tools. The optics used in the eyepiece are glass with a special coating. Field of view is 50-52 degrees.

Could you please recommend a good eyepiece for this model? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Please consider Levenhuk Plossl 6.3 mm Eyepiece - https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-plossl-6-3mm-eyepiece/
Hi. Are there any plans to offer a larger achromatic refractor: 102mm or 120mm? Thanks. Levenhuk Customer Service:
Hi Frank, thank you for interest in Levenhuk products! Yes, we do have more powerful models in stock: Levenhuk Ra R115 ED Triplet OTA & Levenhuk Ra R102 ED Triplet OTA. Is there any additional information you might need?
own this scope, thinking about buying a barlow. So if I use 2x barlow with 5mm lens, will I get 360x? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Skyline 90х900 EQ Telescope has a highest practical power of 180x. Exceeding this magnification leads to distortions. 5mm eyepiece alone is what you should use to get the telescope to its highest practical power, the use of Barlow lens is not necessary.

Operating temperature range: -31/+104°F.
What features should I consider when choosing between this model and Skyline PRO 90 MAK? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Skyline PRO MAK 90 is a better choice due to a larger focal length. Catadioptric telescopes also provide better image quality thanks to reduced chromatic aberrations.
Hi! What would you suggest for getting more quality views during planetary observations? Barlow 2x (https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-barlow-lens2x/) with 10-millimeter eyepiece from the kit or just one 5-millimeter eyepiece (https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-ra-ler-5mm-eyepiece/) Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Ra LER 5 mm Eyepiece will be a preferable choice. It will give you images of higher quality.
Tell me please what case is suitable for this telescope? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Zongo 80 Telescope Case; Large, Blue (http://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-zongo-80-telescope-case/) is suitable for Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ.
Hello! what is the length of the assembled optical tube? Which telescope is better for observations from a balcony and for terrestrial observations? This one or Levenhuk Skyline PRO 90 MAK? Levenhuk Customer Service:
The length of the assembled optical tube is about 1 meter (3 ft). Both models are perfect for observations in urban conditions. Levenhuk Skyline PRO 90 MAK Telescope takes less place due to the smaller size. Moreover, Levenhuk Skyline PRO 90 MAK provides high-quality views with minimum aberrations.
Do I need to purchase the Levehuk 1.25" 45-degree erecting prism in order to view terrestrial objects when using the Skyline 90x900 EQ Telescope? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Dear Ghassan, thank you for your inquiry. This model comes with a diagonal mirror, so it provides a mirrored image. In order to observe terrestrial objects, you may buy the erecting prism. Currently, we do not have this prism in stock. Is there any additional information you might need?
Hello! My question is... if I buy Barlow lens and use it with super 10mm eyepiece (from the kit), will I achieve the highest practical power of 180x? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Yes, using specified accessories, you will obtain the maximum useful magnification of the Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ telescope.
Which eyepiece is better for this telescope, 5 or 6 mm ? I mean for lunar and planetary observations. And is it really necessary to get the highest magnification (180x)? Levenhuk Customer Service:
The best choice for the Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ telescope would be 5mm eyepiece, since it allows you to get your telescope to its highest practical power.
Hello! I've recently bought a telescope and I have some difficulties with using finderscope - the image is inverted and mirrored at the same time. So is there any possibility to make it at least not inverted? Do you have any other models that give direct images? Thanks! Levenhuk Customer Service:
All finderscopes work that way. The telescope is designed for observing celestial objects. And when observing the sky - it's not important if the image is inverted or mirrored.
Please tell me which eyepiece do I need to get 180x? Levenhuk Customer Service:
To get the Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ telescope to its highest practical power of 180x you need 5 mm eyepiece. For example Levenhuk Ra LER 5 mm 1,25": http://www.levenhuk.com/products/eyepiece-levenhuk-ra-ler-5/
Hi! Is there an erecting prism (for an erect image) in the Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ kit? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ Telescope comes with a diagonal mirror! It provides not inverted but mirrored image. Erecting prism is used to observe terrestrial objects and it's purchased separately.
I'm thinking bout purchasing this one. Is it possible to equip the mount with a motor drive? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ allows a motor drive installation. Unfortunately there are no compatible drives in our stock right now.
Please tell me what I should buy if I wanna observe planets, the moon and terrestrial objects. Thanks in advance Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ telescope already has all that is needed. Only we'd recommend you to buy this set: http://www.levenhuk.com/products/com-filters_f4_solar_system_set/ for more comfortable moon and planets observations. Also for an image not being mirrored while terrestrial observations we'd suggest you to buy this erecting prism: http://www.levenhuk.com/products/45degree_erect_prisma_levenhuk_7517/
Which telescope should I choose this one or strike 90 plus? Why? Levenhuk Customer Service:
These models have the same magnification. Levenhuk Strike 90 PLUS comes with an advanced kit of accessories. There's a learning kit, a case and additional optical accessories. Skyline 90x900 EQ model has more advanced equatorial mount and as consequence provides more precise pointing.

Could you please list everything that is included in the kit of Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ Telescope? Levenhuk Customer Service:
There's a telescope tube, a tripod, an equatorial mount, SUPER 10 mm and SUPER 25 mm eyepieces, user manual and lifetime warranty in the kit.
Is there a big difference between 90-mm and model with aperture of 102 mm in the context of image quality. Levenhuk Customer Service:
The difference in highest practical power for these models is 24x.
I've read about "connecting to your computer for control and display of images." does this model connect to a computer, if yes, how does this work? As a beginner, how will I know where to start looking? I read about a telescope that points itself at desired objects. Do any of the Levenhuk telescopes do that? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Hi Ray, Thanks for the question. The Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ Telescope does not allow connecting to a computer. You will need to track astronomical objects using their coordinates and adjusting the equatorial mount accordingly. If you want a telescope that points itself at desired objects, I'd recommend to check out the Levenhuk SkyMatic 105 GT MAK Telescope which you may find here at http://www.levenhuk.com/products/levenhuk_skymatic_105gt_mak/ This is a Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope with GoTo function which is capable of capturing one of 42,900 celestial objects stored in its memory with incredible accuracy.
I would like to buy this telescope but I'm a bit uncertain about it - tell me what's the country of origin? Please don't tell me that it's States, I know for sure that it's made in China! Levenhuk Customer Service:
Our telescopes are produced in PRC under careful quality control of Levenhuk, Inc. (USA).
always black and way? isn't there a way to get color? Levenhuk Customer Service:
During visual observations you will see black and white images. You can get colorful images using photo technique.
will I be able to see colorful images? will the planets appear as small colorful dots? Levenhuk Customer Service:
During visual observations the images provided by this telescope will be black and white. The planets will be seen clearly.
Which Barlow lens should I install on this telescope: Levenhuk A2x or Levenhuk A3x for planetary observations I mean Levenhuk Customer Service:
You need the Levenhuk A2x Barlow lens: http://www.levenhuk.com/products/acc_levenhuk_barlow_lens_a2x/
Hello, this model is indeed very attractive for beginners, so enlighten me on one thing - is prism that is required for seeing erect images included in the kit? Or is it bought separately? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Unfortunately erecting prism is not included in the kit of this telescope; you can find it here: http://www.levenhuk.com/products/45degree_erect_prisma_levenhuk_7517/
Please give me an advice on which eyepieces should I purchase to use with Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ for planetary observations. Levenhuk Customer Service:
You can observe Solar System planets using eyepieces included in the kit as well as additional eyepieces purchased separately. To get your telescope to its highest practical power you need a 5 mm eyepiece; for example, Levenhuk LET 5 mm 1.25" Eyepiece http://www.levenhuk.com/products/eyepiece-levenhuk-let-5mm/
Please help I'm trying to choose a telescope. I'm a beginner so I want all at once))) you recommend Levenhuk Skyline PRO 80 MAK and Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ, but my budget is $250 only. Is it right that the more the objective lens diameter the better? please recommend something up to 200 bucks . thanks! Levenhuk Customer Service:
The Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ Telescope fits your budget and is an excellent choice for a beginner.
With what telescope it's possible to observe the night sky in the city (from the balcony)? Does this telescope provide such possibility? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Yes, Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ is a perfect choice for observing under urban conditions.
What should I buy to use this telescope for astrophotography? How much should I pay? Levenhuk Customer Service:
This model is not the best choice for astrophotography.
Lunar craters of what diameter would be seen through this telescope? What is the maximum magnification which is possible to achieve with this telescope and what is required for this? Levenhuk Customer Service:
You will be able to see lunar craters with a diameter of 3 miles and larger. To get this telescope to its highest practical power you need an eyepiece with a focal length of 5 mm.
what can I see through this telescope Levenhuk Customer Service:
You can observe the following objects through the Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ Telescope: Binary stars with the separation between their components of 2" and more Faint stars up to 12 stellar magnitude Sunspots structure, granulation and facular regions (with aperture filter only) The phases of Mercury Lunar craters with a diameter of 3 miles Polar caps and seas on Mars during opposition Atmospheric flows of Jupiter and even the Great Red Spot. The shadows of Jupiter's moons on its disc The Cassini Gap in the rings of Saturn and 4 to 5 of its moons Uranus and Neptune as small discs without details in them Dozens of globular clusters; bright globular cluster will fall to star dust at the edges Dozens of planetary and diffuse nebulae and every object from the Messier catalogue The brightest objects of the NGC catalogue Most of the galaxies appear as hazy spots without details
Hi! I want to know three things. 1) which eyepiece with the shortest focal length it's possible to purchase for this telescope (to observe nebulae); 2)Is it possible to use binoviewer with this model; 3) Why don't you have them on sale in your store? Levenhuk Customer Service:
1. Consider Levenhuk Plossl 32 mm Eyepiece: http://www.levenhuk.com/products/eyepiece-levenhuk-plossl-32mm/ 2. It's possible in theory, but as you've already observed, we don't have binoviewers, so we can't try it to tell you for sure 3. Currently we don't have this product
I'm waiting for delivery of this telescope, hope I won't be disappointed when it arrives :) Is it possible to use 3x Barlow lens with this telescope? Will it affect image quality? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Yes, you can attach 3x Barlow lens to Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ, the quality depends on which eyepiece is combined with Barlow lens.
Hello. Why is it 39.7 lbs. at the top of the page? It should be lighter... And here's another one: why is resolution threshold is so small (1.71") compared to analogues? Levenhuk Customer Service:
This is the weight of the telescope packed in its factory box. 1.71" is an average resolution threshold for telescopes with such specifications.
I didn't get it. Answering one question you say that provided images are upright, answering another - that finderscope provides reversed images. Please clarify, it's very important to me! Levenhuk Customer Service:
This telescope provides mirrored images, but not upside down.
Tell me if I get it right: to get this telescope to its highest practical power 2x Barlow lens is required? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Yes, you are right, 2x Barlow lens is required to get the highest practical power.
Good day! Can you tell me which planetary filters and also additional eyepieces and lenses will fit this model? Levenhuk Customer Service:
You can find the required filters here: http://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories-filters-lunar-planetary-items/. We also recommend using this Barlow lens http://www.levenhuk.com/products/acc_levenhuk_barlow_lens_a2x/ with your telescope.
are images erect or inverted, I need a refractor starting from 90 mm producing quality upright images, what would you recommend? Levenhuk Customer Service:
The images are correctly oriented. Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ is a good choice.
what's its operation temperature range Levenhuk Customer Service:
The recommended temperature range is -31 to 104 degrees F
How much does it weight with a tripod? Levenhuk Customer Service:
The weight of the Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ Telescope together with a tripod is approximately 29 lbs.
Please clarify the following: 1. Why is Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ is better for lunar and planetary observations than Levenhuk Skyline 130x900 EQ? I mean I can't believe that the latter model provides images of poorer quality while observing planets. It has much greater aperture! 2. Which telescope provides images of higher quality: Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ, Levenhuk Strike 950 PRO or Levenhuk Skylie PRO 90 MAK? 3. Is Levenhuk Strike 950 PRO appropriate for terrestrial observations? If so, what additional accessories should I have? The images are upright or inverted? (for terrestrial objects, planets) Levenhuk Customer Service:
1. Due to their optical design. refractors are much more suitable for planetary observations. You can find Levenhuk refractors here: http://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/telescopes-design-refractor-items/ 2. Image quality and flexibility of use make the Levenhuk Skyline PRO 90 MAK an optimal choice. 3. You can use this telescope for terrestrial observations, but to see erect images you are going to need this accessory: http://www.levenhuk.com/products/45degree_erect_prisma_levenhuk_7517/
help ! bought this telescope as a gift... hoped for 200x magnification...it appeared to be only 90x...if we buy some lenses, we will get 180x...and there are models with 300x magnification out of the box...do I not understand something here? please explain! thank you Levenhuk Customer Service:
The highest practical power of this telescope is 180x. You can increase it by installing different eyepieces. more
