Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK Telescope
Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK is a catadioptric telescope of Maksutov-Cassegrain design that delivers high-quality views while remaining compact and lightweight. The 102-millimeter (4-inch) aperture gathers 28% more light than a 90-millimeter (3.5-inch) counterpart and the telescope's long focal length – 1300 millimeters (51 inches) – allows for high magnifications that deliver sharp images during observations and astrophotography. This telescope may also be used for observations of deep-sky objects like planetary nebulae and star clusters. With the help of an erecting prism (purchased separately) you can turn your telescope into a powerful spotting scope for terrestrial observations. It can even be used as a long-focus lens for SLR cameras and is adaptable to regular tripods.
The lenses and mirrors are fully multi-coated which allows for maximum light-gathering and increases their service life. The sturdy and lightweight aluminum tube is set up on an equatorial mount with slow-motion controls. You can also install the equatorial computerized drive system (purchased separately) on your mount. This mount is equipped with setting circles which – after a quick adjustment – allow for locating objects by their celestial coordinates and tracking them with just a turn of an equatorial control. The adjustable height tripod has a practical accessory tray where you can store all your tools. The Red Dot finder scope allows you to quickly navigate to the desired location. The kit includes 10-millimeter (0.4-inch) and 25-millimeter (0.98-inch) eyepieces with 52-degree field of view of 130x and 52x magnification respectively. The lenses are made of glass and are fully multi-coated. Focusing your telescope is as easy as adjusting the primary mirror with a move of the smooth-turning knob. The rack-and-pinion focuser is made of stainless steel and accepts 31.75-millimeter (1.25-inch) eyepieces; so you can use eyepieces purchased separately – not just those supplied with the kit – therefore increasing the magnification to the highest practical power of 200x. The focuser has the standard T-thread which allows you to attach an SLR camera using an adapter and use your telescope for astrophotography.
