We are happy to offer a unique opportunity to observe the upcoming 2017 Great American Eclipse using Levenhuk high-quality telescopes. This outstanding event attracts a lot of attention, especially since this is the first coast-to-coast solar eclipse across the continental United States in almost a century.
If you want to observe the eclipse, Levenhuk has everything you'll need for this purpose. We picked a special product line for you to make your search easier for the best telescope for solar observations - Levenhuk Strike PRO series telescopes!
Each of the advanced telescopes below comes with a solar filter made of special Baader Planetarium AstroSolar Visual film that absorbs radiation from the sun and allows for comfortable observations of the star without any decrease in quality of the resulting image.
CAUTION: Under no circumstances should you observe the Sun without a solar filter, as this may cause permanent retinal damage.
