Levenhuk Strike 100 PLUS Telescope is a Newtonian reflector perfect for astronomical observations in the countryside. With this instrument’s high-quality optics you will be able to witness the phases of Venus and seas on Mars, the moons of Jupiter and Saturn's rings, distant star clusters and nebulae. The advanced kit allows you to get the most from your telescope.

Optics

Levenhuk Strike 100 PLUS is a reflector with a primary mirror diameter of 102 mm. Such optical design ensures bright, crisp and clear images with no chromatic aberration. All optical elements are coated with high-reflective aluminum coating. The best image quality can be achieved during observations in a suburban area.

The kit includes two eyepieces: the 25-mm focal length eyepiece is more suitable for general astronomical observations, and the zoom eyepiece with variable focal length of 6.8-16 mm may be used for detailed study of certain objects of interest. Two-element achromatic 2x Barlow lens is also included in the kit.

Mount and tripod

The telescope is installed on a German equatorial mount EQ1. This mount is very comfortable to use, provides for quick navigation, and allows for following the diurnal motion of the celestial sphere by rotating about only one axis.
The steel tripod provides for stability of the telescope during observations.

Advanced kit

The advanced kit allows you to start your observations right after unpacking your telescope! In the colorful box you will find useful optical accessories, fun print and electronic materials, and a carrying bag for transporting your telescope.

The unique kit of Levenhuk Strike PLUS Telescope contains:

1. "See it all!" Astronomer's Handbook. This practical handbook was created specifically for beginning astronomers. It contains valuable information on over 280 celestial objects and the cosmos in general, as well as colorful star charts and facts on the design of different telescopes.

2. Stellarium. This is 3D planetarium software that allows you to plan your observations and explore the night sky several years in the future. The database contains over 600,000 stars, planets of the Solar System, the Moon, comets and asteroids, galaxies, nebulae and star clusters. All this can be rendered in just a few moments and studied directly on your computer!

3. Space Posters Set (Moon, Sun and Other Stars, Solar System). These posters will help you explore the universe and learn interesting facts about the Solar system, its planets and satellites, and various distant stars. Colorful illustrations and captions present necessary information in an easy-to-read format. The posters are 84x60 cm (33x24 in).

4. Planisphere. This rotating star chart is a handy tool that allows you to find out what celestial objects and constellations are visible above the horizon at a given date and time. All you need to do is align the viewer and the star chart, providing a date and time.

5. Compass. Truly an invaluable tool that can help you orient yourself to the Northern pole on your observation site. Afterwards, it is easy to locate Polaris in the night sky, which provides a starting point for further observations.

6. 6.8-16 zoom eyepiece. This is a wonderful eyepiece that can completely replace several eyepieces. By adjusting its focal length, you can change the highest practical power without having to replace the eyepiece. It allows you to enjoy planetary observations and forget about additional calibrations.

7. Levenhuk Zongo Telescope Case. This case is made of a sturdy waterproof material, and the padded lining protects the telescope from impact. The case is also fitted with handle straps for easy transportation.

what about diagonal mirror and solar filter? As I understand, these accessories are not included in the kit? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Strike 100 PLUS is a reflecting model. Diagonal mirrors are used with refracting and catadioptric telescopes. Unfortunately, we don't have a suitable solar filter in our product range at the time.

would this be a good chouice for a beginner. if not can you pick one. my wife and I are campers and 60 yr, and older Levenhuk Customer Service:
Dear Jerry, thank you for interest in Levenhuk products. As Newtonian telescopes require extra alignment, we'd recommend to consider buying refractor or catadioptric telescope. I'd recommend to go for the Levenhuk Strike 90 PLUS Telescope which you can find here online: https://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/telescopes/levenhuk-strike-90-plus/ It will be a perfect choice for beginners. The telescope comes with an advanced accessory kit so no extras are needed.

Hello! What are this telescope's advantages compared to Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ?? Levenhuk Customer Service:
Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope will be a better choice due to larger diameter of the objective lens.
