What erecting eyepiece fits this telescope? Klientu apkalpošana:
Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope is a Newtonian reflector. Erecting eyepiece is not compatible with reflectors. It cannot correct mirrored images (reversed left to right).
Hello! You wrote that Barlow lens is built-in into the telescope, but what is that on the picture next to the eyepieces? Isn’t it Barlow lens? Or there’s another one inside? I don’t see anything in the focuser (I figured it should be there as in my Bresser Pollux 150/1400 EQ3). Maybe it is somewhere else? Klientu apkalpošana:
The Barlow lens, which extends the focal length, and the Barlow lens, giving an additional magnification, are two different lenses. The first one is located inside the tube and cannot be seen.
Tell me the actual focal length of the Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ telescope without a Barlow lens. If it is 1000 mm, then how is it achieved? the tube length is 500 mm. Klientu apkalpošana:
Focal length of the Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope is 1000 mm. Barlow lens is built into the tube and increases it 2 times. It is non-removable.
Hello! What objects can be observed through this telescope? Can I view terrestrial objects as well? Does the kit include a Barlow lens? Klientu apkalpošana:
Through the Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ you will be able to observe: structure of sunspots, phases of Mercury, lunar canyons and craters (5.5 km in diameter), polar ice caps on Mars, more atmospheric bands of Jupiter, shadows from its moons on the planetary disk, Cassini Division in the rings of Saturn and five of its moons, Uranus and Neptune as tiny disks. You will also be able to see tens of globular clusters, diffuse and planetary nebulae, and galaxies. All of Messier objects, the brightest NGC objects under good conditions, features of bright nebulae, galaxies, however, are viewed as bleak gray spots. The telescope is not suitable for terrestrial observations, since the image will be reversed left to right and upside down. 2o Barlow lens is included in the package.
Are there any filters for this telescope? Moon, solar filter? Klientu apkalpošana:
Levenhuk Strike 60 NG has a non-standard eyepiece barrel diameter. We do not have these Moon filters in our product range. We suggest taking a look at solar filters made of Baader AstroSolar film.
hi,can i install R.A axis motor drive on this telescope for long exposure astrophography? and where can i buy it? Klientu apkalpošana:
Dear Charles, thank you for your inquiry. Yes, the telescope can be used with the motor drive. We do not have them in our product range.
is the t ring adapter include with the barlow lens? Klientu apkalpošana:
Dear Ivy, thank you for your inquiry. The Barlow lens comes without a T-ring adapter. Is there any additional information you might need?
can i attach dslr camera to this telescope and take astrophotography? Klientu apkalpošana:
Dear Neoechun, thank you for interest in Levenhuk products. This telescope can be used for astrophotography. You will need a T-ring to attach the dslr camera. The T-ring can be purchase in your local camera store. This telescope is currently out of stock. Please check the similar model: Levenhuk Strike 120 PLUS Telescope (SKU 65620). It is quite the same model, but it comes with an advanced kit of accessories.
Is this telescope suitable for observations of Saturn? Can I see Andromeda galaxy in this scope? Klientu apkalpošana:
Yes, Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ telescope allows you to observe these objects.
Hello! How to revert upside-down images? Klientu apkalpošana:
Newtonian reflector is not really suitable for terrestrial viewing, but, you can try fix image orientation with an erecting eyepiece.
I tried 3.6, 10 and 25, but mostly observed with 25mm as image quality is better with it Klientu apkalpošana:
To get even more detailed and quality pictures you will have to get another telescope model, with larger aperture.
Hello! What accessories should I get to have a better look at Andromeda galaxy and M13, the Great Globular Cluster in Hercules? Thanks in advance! Klientu apkalpošana:
Could you please specify which eyepiece you observe with?
Greetings! Can this telescope model compete with Dob 8"? The thing is that my friend has this telescope, and when I tried it, I didn't notice such big of a difference between them. Klientu apkalpošana:
The Dob 8" model has a much larger diameter. Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ can't really compete with that.
Is planetary nebula visible? Klientu apkalpošana:
Dear Mahrya, thank you for interest in Levenhuk products. With the help of this telescope you will be able to observe: binary stars with angular separation of over 1.5", faint stars (up to 12 stellar magnitude);structure of sunspots, granulation and solar flares (with an aperture filter); phases of Mercury;lunar craters (5 km in diameter);clearer view of atmospheric bands on Jupiter and the GRS, shadows cast by moons onto the planetary disk;Cassini Division in the rings of Saturn and 4-5 moons; Uranus and Neptune as small disks with no details;tens of globular clusters, bright globular clusters are resolved into cosmic dust at the edges; tens of planetary and diffuse nebulae and all Messier objects; brightest objects from NGC;
Does the Scope come collimated? I have setup the scope but so far i can not observe anything. the finder is aligned properly. Am i doing something wrong? Klientu apkalpošana:
Dear Murat, thank you for your inquiry. Yes, the scope is collimated. Please contact our tech support at firstname.lastname@example.org. They will help you to operate the scope.
I live in a country house a few kilometers away from the city center. The thing is that there are a lot of lamp poles on the street. Will it affect image quality? Klientu apkalpošana:
Yes, intensive street light can strongly affect image quality. It's better to find a dark place for your observations.
Hello! Will I get quality images of the Moon, stars, planets, nebulae with this microscope? Is it suitable for urban conditions? Are produced images sharp? Klientu apkalpošana:
Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope is great for planetary, as well as deep-sky observations. It's better to use this model in the countryside.
What accessory will I need to rotate the image for terrestrial observations? Diagonal prism or diagonal mirror? Klientu apkalpošana:
Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ is a reflecting telescope therefore it's not recommended to use diagonal prisms and mirrors with it. It will cause a degradation of image quality.
Sorry for this totally amateur question but is it possible to take photos with this telescope? And how well will be craters on the lunar surface seen? Klientu apkalpošana:
Yes, you can make photos and record videos by using one of our telescope cameras: http://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/digital-cameras/for-telescopes/. You can also use a DSLR camera, for example Canon, Nikon, or Sony. To connect such camera, you will also need this 2x Barlow lens with camera adapter - http://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-2x-barlow-lens-with-camera-adapter/, as well as a T-ring adapter for your particular camera model.
is this model great for planetary observing? Klientu apkalpošana:
Yes, Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope is perfect for planetary observations.
What Planets Can You See? Klientu apkalpošana:
Dear Hayden, thank you for interest in Levenhuk products. With the help of this telescope you will be able to observe: binary stars with angular separation of over 1.5", faint stars (up to 12 stellar magnitude); structure of sunspots, granulation and solar flares (with an aperture filter); phases of Mercury; lunar craters (5 km in diameter); polar ice caps and maria on Mars during oppositions; clearer view of atmospheric bands on Jupiter and the GRS, shadows cast by moons onto the planetary disk; Cassini Division in the rings of Saturn and 4-5 moons; Uranus and Neptune as small disks with no details; tens of globular clusters, bright globular clusters are resolved into cosmic dust at the edges; tens of planetary and diffuse nebulae and all Messier objects; brightest objects from NGC; some details are resolved on the brightest and largest objects; details are not resolved during observations of most galaxies. Is there any additional information you might need? Looking forward to your reply.
What is the highest useful magnification of the instrument? Can I obtain, let's say, 400x using additional accessories? The telescope is great! love it! Klientu apkalpošana:
The maximum useful magnification of the Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ telescope is 228x, we do not recommend exceeding this value, doing otherwise will lead to a significant image quality loss.
Does the Skyline 120x1000 EQ come with the primary mirror already center spotted? Klientu apkalpošana:
Dear Jack, thank you for interest in Levenhuk products. All our telescopes comes with a manufacture's adjustment. But as it is a reflector type, the mirrors inside need adjustments, from time to time. Is there any additional information you might need?
Hi! Which eyepiece I need to obtain the highest power? Klientu apkalpošana:
To get Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ to its highest practical power of 228x you need a 5-mm eyepiece.
Hi! Can I use Panasonic FZ 62 Lumix for making photos, videos? Klientu apkalpošana:
Theoretically, you can use this camera with Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ, but we do not have suitable adapters in our product range.
Hi, I bought T-ring for canon cameras. How do I install it? Klientu apkalpošana:
Use Levenhuk 2x Barlow Lens with Camera Adapter (http://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-2x-barlow-lens-with-camera-adapter/). Then you can attach the T-ring to it.
Hello! What telescope case is suitable for this telescope? Klientu apkalpošana:
Levenhuk Zongo 80 Telescope Case; Large, Blue (http://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-zongo-80-telescope-case/) is suitable for Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope.
Could you please help me to make the right choice? I need a telescope for a person with zero experience. I'm planning to observe in the countryside. I want to observe the Moon, planets and other bright objects. Generally I like Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ. Is it ok for me? As I understood, reflectors blur images a little so they are not so great for planetary observations... Could you suggest something? Thank you! Klientu apkalpošana:
Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope is perfect for you. This model is designed for beginners. The telescope has a very high optical quality. Reflectors do not blur images (though it might happen if you observe in the city with its high level of light pollution). With Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope you will be able to observe Solar System planets as well as deep-sky objects.
Hi! Does the kit include solar and lunar filters? Do you have them in the store? Klientu apkalpošana:
Solar and lunar filters are not included in the kit with Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope. These accessories can be purchased separately. Levenhuk Solar Filter for 114mm Reflector Telescopes (http://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-solar-filter-for-114mm-reflector-telescopes/) costs only $32.95. Find Levenhuk lunar filter in this section: http://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/lunar-planetary-filters/.
Hello! I just have some doubts about the telescope's highest practical power... why 230x? Focal length which is 1000mm divided by 10 (10mm eyepiece) and then multiplied by 2 (2x Barlow) equals 200x. Where did you get +30? Klientu apkalpošana:
The highest practical power is calculated as follows: objective lens diameter * 2. Hence, 114mm * 2 = 228x. Your formula is also correct but this number is the telescope's highest practical power with this particular eyepiece (in your case 10 mm).
what kind of coating is on the mirror? how to treat the optics? Klientu apkalpošana:
The primary and secondary mirrors of the Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope have special coatings that protect the reflective layer from darkening. To maintain the optics in good condition we recommend using special optics cleaning tools that you can find in this catalog section: http://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/optics-cleaning/.
Is Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ suitable for observing stars? Klientu apkalpošana:
With Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope you will be able to observe the following celestial objects: The Moon, planets and their moons: Structure of sunspots, phases of Mercury, lunar canyons and craters (5.5 km in diameter), polar ice caps on Mars, as well as highlands during oppositions, more atmospheric bands of Jupiter, shadows from its moons on the planetary disk, Cassini Division in the rings of Saturn and five of its moons, Uranus and Neptune as tiny disks. Stars: Binary stars with angular separation of 1.5"", faint stars up to 12 stellar magnitude. Nebulae, galaxies and star clusters: Tens of globular clusters, diffuse and planetary nebulae, galaxies. All of Messier objects, the brightest NGC objects under good conditions, features of bright nebulae, galaxies, however, are viewed as bleak gray spots.
It uses spherical mirror, right? I read somewhere that there is a special lens installed in focusers of small telescope tubes, which is supposed to correct for spherical aberration. But this trick doesn't really work, and it just results in low image quality (blurry images) when observing with high and even medium magnifications. Is that true? Klientu apkalpošana:
The optical design of the Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ telescope includes spherical concave high-aperture mirror which is hidden inside the optical tube. The telescope provides high-quality images even when observing with medium and high magnifications.
For fast and easy tuning I recommend using a laser collimator. Klientu apkalpošana:
Thank you for your feedback on Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope.
Hi! What accessories come in the kit with this telescope? Klientu apkalpošana:
The kit of the Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ telescope includes SUPER 25 and SUPER 10 eyepieces.
Which telescope is better in terms of price / quality: Levenhuk Ra 200N F5 OTA or Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ? and which one is better suited for observations in the city? Klientu apkalpošana:
Levenhuk Ra 200N F5 OTA provides higher magnification and better image quality due to large objective lens diameter. Both models are not the best possible choice for observations under urban conditions. We recommend you consider Levenhuk Skyline 70x900 EQ Telescope - http://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/telescopes/levenhuk-skyline-70x900-eq/.
Hello! Bought this telescope for my kid, but I really like using it too. The design is great, no complaints, the construction is simple and reliable, seems like it's going to serve us many years to come. No doubt it is more compact than similar models like Levenhuk Strike 115 PLUS for instance, which is very convenient if you are going to use it in your apartment or transport (I'm planning on taking it with me to the countryside). Also I'm gonna buy 4.3 eyepiece and a solar filter additionally. On the first unclouded night I managed to calculate moonrise time (using Stellarium software) and had the opportunity to observe the Moon and even Jupiter. The image is very good: I observed from my apartment in the city with high light pollution level and I should admit - image quality is great! I even saw Jupiter's belts and satellites. The Moon is just magnificent! Summarizing, this model surprised me a lot! I've got tons of positive emotions already after the first use so I totally recommend it! Klientu apkalpošana:
Thank you for your feedback on Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope!
This is an affordable reflector with a really great mount. I have been using it for almost half a year now and I am very satisfied with this telescope’s performance. Looking forward to trying astrophotography soon, already purchased a digital camera here! Klientu apkalpošana:
Thank you for your feedback on Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope.
Hello! Tell me, do all the telescopes in this series come with latitude adjustment screws? I didn't find them in the box. Klientu apkalpošana:
Yes, the latitude adjustment screw is included in the kit. We recommend you to contact our Customer Service Department to swiftly solve the problem: http://www.levenhuk.com/feedback/.
I see that there is a little “war” between Strike and Skyline. I think both are decent telescopes, but I honestly prefer Skyline (I own 120x1000). I believe that all accessories you need in the kit are eyepieces and Barlow, and all the rest you can always choose and buy separately. So I’m on team Skyline! ;) Klientu apkalpošana:
Thank you for your feedback on Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope.
Hello! Can I connect Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ telescope to my PC? Klientu apkalpošana:
You can transfer images produced by the Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 telescope to your PC monitor using a digital camera: http://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/digital-cameras/for-telescopes/.
I got this telescope as a gift on my last birthday! It's great. It's perfect for observing planets, satellites, the Moon and deep-sky as well. I enjoy using it. Klientu apkalpošana:
Thank you for your feedback on Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope.
Hello! Thanks a lot for helping me to make the right choice! This telescope produces quality sharp views with no effect of chromatic aberration. Every detail has been carefully thought through, build quality is great. Thanks one more time. Klientu apkalpošana:
Thank you for your feedback on Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope.
Thanks for the answer! Tell me one more thing.. the telescope is equipped with parabolic or spherical mirror? Klientu apkalpošana:
Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ is equipped with a spherical mirror.
Hi! Tell me please which lens can be installed on this telescope for coma correction? Do you have erecting eyepieces for reflectors in stock? Klientu apkalpošana:
Unfortunately, suitable coma correctors and erecting eyepieces are not available in our store at the time.
Hello, I can't decide between this model and Levenhuk Strike 115 PLUS, can you help me? Klientu apkalpošana:
These telescope models have similar specifications, Levenhuk Strike 115 PLUS is a preferred choice due to its extensive kit of additional accessories that come with the telescope.
Hello! I've bought Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ recently. I have tried to observe nebulae but I haven't found anything, although I thought I know the sky quite well. So how can I detect them? Klientu apkalpošana:
Please pay attention to the following products that might be helpful: Levenhuk M20 Large Planisphere - http://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/levenhuk-m20-large-planisphere/; "See it all!" Astronomer's Handbook -http://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories/astronomers-handbook-see-it-all/
which eyepieces should I buy in addition to this telescope? Is it possible to use Barlow lens with it? Klientu apkalpošana:
Optical accessories with barrel diameter of 1.25" are suitable for this telescope. To achieve the highest practical power of the Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ model, you'll need 4.3 mm eyepiece. Unfortunately, this product is not available in Levenhuk store at the moment.
I'm a newbie... do I have to completely remove the large black cap, unscrewing three bolts, or is it enough to pull out this small round thing in the middle? Klientu apkalpošana:
You should remove the cap entirely.
How tall is this telescope? Klientu apkalpošana:
Dear Kraig, thank you for your inquiry. The tripod legs are telescoping. So, the minimum height with the tube is 225 in. The maximum is 375 in. Is there any additional information you might need? Looking forward to your reply.
Which is more powerful the skyline 120x 1000 or the strike 90 plus? Klientu apkalpošana:
Dear Kraig, thank you for interest in Levenhuk products. The highest practical magnification of the Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 is 230x. The highest practical magnification of the Levenhuk Strike 90 Plus is 180x. Is there any additional information you might need? Looking forward to your reply.
Hello! I'm a beginner... is it reasonable to purchase this model? I'm gonna take it with me to the countryside... Klientu apkalpošana:
Yes, Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ is perfect for observing outside the city.
So I can obtain 200x magnification using standard 10mm eyepiece and 2x barlow from the kit. Did I get it right? Klientu apkalpošana:
Yes, the maximum out of the box magnification of Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ is 200x.
How do I focus with this telescope? Klientu apkalpošana:
Dear Kody, thank you for interest in Levenhuk products! You can find the detailed manual here http://www.levenhuk.com/products/materials/0/levenhuk_Skyline_EQ_eng_web.pdf . Please read the clause "Aligning the finderscope". Is there any additional information you might need?
classic question: reflector or refractor? Which one is better? Klientu apkalpošana:
Please refer to this article http://www.levenhuk.com/reviews/begginers_guide_to_telescopes/
Hi! Two models - this one and Levenhuk Strike 90 PLUS... which one to choose? I'd like to observe planets and satellites (the Moon, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter). And one more thing... what else should I buy to get 'terrestrial' images? Klientu apkalpošana:
Levenhuk Strike 90 PLUS is more suitable for planetary observations due to refracting optical design. To get terrestrial images you need an accessory called erecting prism.
Is this model suitable for observations in the city? Or maybe any other options? With approximately same magnification power and price please. Klientu apkalpošana:
Newtonian telescopes are not suitable for observing in the city as they are not quite able to suppress urban light pollution. Please, consider Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ Telescope - http://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/telescopes/levenhuk-skyline-90x900-eq/
How clear will Andromeda galaxy look with this telescope? Klientu apkalpošana:
The picture will be pretty detailed with Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ.
Hi. I need help! You see I'm a beginner and I want to buy a telescope, but I don't know which one is better: Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ or Levenhuk Skyline 130x900 EQ. I need it for the city, but also I'd like to have an opportunity to use it as a spotting scope outside the city. so which one is better? Klientu apkalpošana:
These models are not the best choice for your purposes. They are more suitable for deep-sky observations in the countryside and they don't provide erect images. Please take a look at the Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ telescope instead: http://www.levenhuk.com/products/levenhuk_skyline_90_900eq/
Beginner's here. Bought this telescope couple of months ago. Very happy with it! And here's the question: I was observing outside (it was kinda freezing) and when I brought the telescope back home I saw that condensed water was covering the optics. Since then there are some spots on mirrors. I guess it's not all too good for optics... How to avoid it? Or is it just dust and all I need to do is clean the mirrors?? Thanks Klientu apkalpošana:
You need to clean the mirrors, we suggest you to use one of our convenient optics cleaning accessories: http://www.levenhuk.com/catalogue/accessories-optics-cleaning-all-items/
Please suggest a good telescope under $200 Klientu apkalpošana:
Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ would be the most powerful telescope in this price range.
Hello! I want to buy this telescope for my son. But before I place the order, I would like to know what else you have to offer in this price range. We will observe in the countryside, I want it to be as they say "to grow into" for my son ))) Klientu apkalpošana:
Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ telescope is an excellent choice for observing in the countyside! In this price range also consider this model: http://www.levenhuk.com/products/telescope-levenhuk-strike-90-plus/
Does this Telescope comes with a bag or just a box? Klientu apkalpošana:
Dear Bashar A, thank you for interest in Levenhuk products! The telescope comes in a box. Is there any additional information you might need? Looking forward to your reply.
sorry, I was mistaken in my previous comment. The image is upside down and left-to-right. So another question. Can I use a diagonal mirror and erecting prism to get direct image? Thank you. Klientu apkalpošana:
No, to get direct images you will need an erecting eyepiece, but we do not have it in our product range at the moment.
And one more question... I figured out that thanks to its built-in Barlow Lens the image is reversed but not mirrored. So what do I need to buy to turn it into the right position?? Thank you in advance. Klientu apkalpošana:
The image is reversed from left to right and upside-down as in all refractors.
Thank you for your reply. I bought this model + eyepiece 6.5 mm. I'll be testing it. I guess, for a beginner it would be great. Maybe in a year I will take something more serious. I'm already looking at catadioptric telescopes such as Levenhuk Skyline PRO 127 MAK EQ. Is it worth it? Or it's reasonable to take smth more powerful among reflectors? What can you advise? money is not an issue Klientu apkalpošana:
Catadioptric telescopes are easy to use and perfect for deep-sky observing as well as for planetary observations and astrophotography. In this case, you should take a look at Levenhuk Skyline PRO 150 MAK: http://www.levenhuk.com/products/levenhuk-skyline-pro-150mak/
Good afternoon! Tell me, please, how much worse is the image quality with the Barlow lens? Which one of two telescopes (this one and Celesctron PowerSeeker 114 EQ) will produce more detailed and quality images? Is it difficult to maintain this telescope compared to a reflector (how often it requires adjustment and so on)? Can I observe terrestrial objects with this model? Klientu apkalpošana:
The Barlow lens won't affect image quality. These two telescopes have the same objective lens diameter (i.e., the same magnification power), but The Celestron PowerSeeker 114 EQ has a larger focal length and comes with a 4 mm eyepiece. With its help you can achieve the telescope's highest practical power. The telescope's tube is always open, so there's a chance of dust settling. You can clean it with the compressed air duster: http://www.levenhuk.com/products/acc_levenhuk_air_duster/ With careful handling, that's enough to adjust this telescope a few times a year.
Hello! I'm really interested in this model. But as a beginner, I do not know anything. The question is can I see planets such as Jupiter, Mars, Saturn...? And what the image orientation will be? reversed? It says: "Highest practical power, x: 230', under 230x magnification will the image be sharp? and if no, then what will I need for that? do prices change with time? like once a year? and also tell me, how much does delivery cost (I live in Chicago)?? Thank you!!! Klientu apkalpošana:
Yes, it's possible to observe Jupiter, Mars and Saturn with Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ. The image will be upside-down as in all reflectors. Yes, the image will be sharp. Our prices do change once in a while; at this moment you can see the current offer on this product. You will be able to see the shipping cost during checkout prior order confirmation.
so is it 114 or 120 mm? What comes in the kit? Is it possible to connect a Canon camera? Klientu apkalpošana:
1. The aperture of Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ is 114 mm. 2. The kit includes: the telescope tube, finderscope, tripod, equatorial mount, eyepieces SUPER 10 mm and SUPER 25 mm. 3. You will need a T-ring.
I just don't understand one thing! Why on the tag I see '120mm aperture' and the same thing I was told when I bought this telescope, but if I measure it there's only 114 mm. And about the mirror it's better not to write at all... Klientu apkalpošana:
We are truly sorry about that, there was a mistake in the product's description. The telescope Levevnhuk Skyline 120x100 has the objective lens diameter of 114 mm. The information on the website has been updated.
Could you tell me what is the 'red dot finder' from the product's description? Is there this model without this option or with something else instead? Klientu apkalpošana:
Sure, this model can be equipped with an average optical view finder. Just mention that you want this model with an optical finder in the comment, while ordering it.
Hello! I got this telescope as s present, I really liked its design. Unluckily I haven't got chance to use it because of the weather conditions:( I'm waiting for a clear sky. Klientu apkalpošana:
Thank you for your feedback!
I have one more question. What eyepieces/lenses should I use to obtain maximum magnification? Klientu apkalpošana:
To obtain the maximum useful magnification we recommend an eyepiece of 4.2 mm focal length, but, unfortunately, we currently don't have that in our product range.
Hello, is it possible to install the telescope drives on both axes (for astrophoto), advise any drives please Klientu apkalpošana:
At the moment, we don't have any suitable drives in the product range.
I am interested in getting the Levenhuk Skyline 120x1000 EQ Telescope but no very little about telescopes. Would this be a good one to get as my first? One thing I have heard is that some telescopes flip and reverse the image which I do not want. I am mainly wanting it for close observance of the moon so it is important to me to have the correct image orientation but I will also use it for planetary observation but not necessarily deep, deep space. Please advise. Thank you! Klientu apkalpošana:
Hello Joe, thank you for your interest in Levenhuk products! Yes, Newtonian telescopes have reversed image from left to right and top-down. So if you do not like it, it is better to consider buying a refractor telescope, which will have the reversed image from left to right only. In that way the refractor telescope is suitable for both astronomical and terrestrial observations. I'd recommend to consider buying the Levenhuk Skyline 70x900 EQ Telescope, which you can find online here:http://www.levenhuk.com/products/levenhuk_skyline_70_900EQ/. With this telescope you will be able to observe mountains and craters on the moon, the phases of Venus, Jupiter's disk with cloud bands and its four satellites, the rings of Saturn and Titan, binary stars and star clusters, as well as bright nebulae and galaxies.Is there any additional information you might need? Looking forwad to your reply.

How is it possible that this telescope has 46 cm tube length and the focal length of 1000 mm? Klientu apkalpošana:
It's possible thanks to a built-in Barlow lens.
Alexander, did you buy any additional eyepieces? I bought 6.5 mm and 5 mm and I can perfectly see Jupiter even in the city with a high level of light pollution. It's not that big of course but its strings can be detected and the satellites are seen too. I'm really satisfied with this telescope, but I'm becoming an advanced stargazer:) so I've been thinking of purchasing something more impressive. Klientu apkalpošana:
Thank you for your feedback!
Nick, thank you for your advice! I'll try to adjust the telescope, maybe something went wrong. Klientu apkalpošana:
Thank you for your comment!
