The Levenhuk Skyline PLUS 80S Telescope is a telescope for experienced and demanding users. This Newtonian reflector is perfect for observing deep-sky objects: You can observe all of the objects from the Messier catalog and the brightest objects from the NGC catalog. Dozens of star clusters, planetary, and diffuse nebulae are available for observation. Outer space is also available for exploring and that includes lunar craters, the rings of Saturn, atmospheric vortices on Jupiter, weather conditions of Mars, phases of Mercury, etc. Even Uranus and Neptune are discernible but only as small disks.

The optics in the telescope are made of fully coated glass. The included accessories are chosen in such a way as to maximize the capabilities of the optics. By using two eyepieces and a Barlow lens together, you can achieve the highest useful power, which allows for observing astronomy objects as detailed and sharp as possible, or vice versa, you can opt for a wide field of view for the observation of extended deep-sky objects. With a fully packed telescope kit, there is no need to buy any additional accessories.

The telescope is mounted on an equatorial mount that allows for smooth tracking of astronomical objects across the sky. However, it takes some time to master the operation of the telescope. The mount is attached to an aluminum tripod. You can place it almost anywhere because of the extendable legs with several sections. The telescope comes with an accessory tray.

Features:

  • Entry-level Newtonian reflector
  • Suitable for exploring deep and outer space
