Levenhuk Skyline series includes a wide range of high-quality telescopes, suitable for beginners, as well as for experienced stargazers. The series includes a variety of refractor and reflector telescopes installed on alt-azimuth and equatorial mounts and designed for different purposes. In this section you will find telescopes designed especially for planetary observations, such as the Skyline 70x700 AZ model; and also for observing deep-sky objects, for example, Skyline 130x900 EQ. If you’d like to find an instrument that handles both these tasks well, Skyline 120x1000 EQ would be an ideal choice. Some of the models can be used for observing ground-based objects. For example, the Levenhuk Skyline 70x900 EQ Telescope – a refractor with an equatorial mount – performs equally great during astronomical and terrestrial observations. The price range is also very wide; prices on Skyline telescopes start at only $49.95.
Cheap telescopes in the Levenhuk Skyline series
The newest additions to the Levenhuk Skyline series - Skyline 50x600 AZ and 60x700 AZ models – make the series a lot more affordable. These new telescopes were introduced in May 2015 and made quite a lot of buzz. Levenhuk Skyline 60x700 AZ Telescope was named #1 Hot New Release on Amazon.com the following month. But what attracted so much attention and made the release so special? Besides being new models in a popular telescope series, the instruments are also distinguished by their very affordable prices.
Usually when you hear or read “cheap telescope” somewhere you imagine something low quality, but that’s not the case with Levenhuk Skyline! A cheap telescope is a smart choice for beginners and children, and especially for those who just want to try astronomy for the first time. Such telescopes are easy-to-use and cost close to nothing - Skyline 50x600 AZ is yours for just $49.95 – a lot of entry-level microscopes and even binoculars are more expensive than that! At the same time, new Skyline telescopes are pretty decent instruments with reliable construction, quality optics and the ability to show you lunar craters, phases of Venus, atmospheric flows of Jupiter, rings of Saturn and other breathtaking views.
Of course, if you are an experienced astronomer, these telescopes are not for you; you should check senior Skyline models. But if you are just a beginner, then new Skylines are excellent for giving you the very first taste of how amazing astronomical observations can be! And this kind of experience is not measured in money – it’s absolutely priceless.
All Levenhuk Skyline telescopes come with all necessary accessories in the kit: reliable mount and tripod with accessory tray, two eyepieces, and finderscope. If you would like to try your hand at astrophotography and make some amazing photos of celestial objects, just choose one of the Levenhuk Skyline telescopes and combine it with a Levenhuk digital camera.
