Levenhuk SkyMatic PRO 150 EQ MAK is a high-quality telescope with computerized drive and automatic navigation systems on the mount – perfect for experienced stargazers. The long focal length and impressive aperture of the telescope make it a very practical instrument, as you will be able to observe planetary disks of Solar System objects, as well as study many deeps-sky objects. The equatorial mount with computerized drive systems allows you to capture breathtaking images of observed objects with ease. The automatic navigation system of the mount provides for a fast and simple way to navigate to the desired object: choose any object from the database and the mount will automatically slew to it – you don't even have to check astronomical charts and prepare for your observation sessions in advance.

This catadioptric telescope produces high-quality, detailed views of observed objects, and, due to Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design, it boasts a very long focal length, while maintaining compact size of the optical tube. The long focal length of this instrument means that you will be able to achieve high magnifications for lunar and planetary observations, while the 150-mm primary mirror will allow you to observe hundreds of deep-sky objects. With this telescope you can see objects from Messier and NGC catalogues, study features on the lunar surface (as small as 4 km in size), rings of Saturn, moons of Jupiter, Mars, Venus, Mercury, bright comets and many other captivating celestial objects.

Both mirrors of the telescope have protective coatings that protect them from darkening over time; and the objective lens is fully multi-coated. Levenhuk SkyMatic PRO 150 EQ MAK will produce bright images, full of contrast, for many years to come. The focuser has a barrel diameter of 1.25", which allows you to use a variety of accessories available on the market today – you can even use other eyepieces with this telescope, so that the assembly yields higher magnifications (keep in mind, however, that the highest practical power of this telescope is 300x).

The optical tube is mounted on a GoTo EQ5 German equatorial mount with SynScan hand controller. The mount has computerized drive systems on both axes, which are controlled from SynScan. The backlight of the hand controller display and keys is bright enough for you to see them in the dark without having to re-adapt to the darkness afterwards. The mount may be fitted with a polar finder that will make polar alignment and, as a result, astrophotography even easier. You can also attach a guider for tracking corrections.

Specifications read: Hand controller SynScan EQ with automatic navigation. What's EQ? equatorial? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Yes, that's correct, SynScan system is perfectly compatible with EQ5 equatorial mount of the Levenhuk SkyMatic PRO 150 EQ MAK telescope.

Eric Stein (2013-06-09 05:19): Positive
The description says that eyepiece barrel diameter is 1.25" and here you say that this telescope comes with an eyepiece of 2" barrel diameter. What is the barrel diameter for installing eyepieces and other accessories in fact? Levenhuk Customer Service:
There is an adapter included in the kit of this model which allows installing accessories with 1.25" barrel diameter.

Janette C. Elliot (2013-03-10 12:07): Positive
