Offering millions of people the chance to discover, and satisfy their curiosity, Discovery offers a compelling mix of stories across genres including science and technology, exploration, adventure, history and in depth behind-the-scenes glimpses at the people, places and organisations that shape and share the world we live in.

We proudly present the Discovery optics series that is produced by Levenhuk and endorsed by Discovery.


Levenhuk Discovery Sky Trip ST70 with book is an extra-compact refractor telescope that is perfect for your first-hand experience of viewing outer space. From the "Space. Non-Empty Emptiness" knowledge book, beginner-astronomers will learn fascinating information about stargazing and immediately put their knowledge into practice. You can study the Moon and the planets as well as the Earth's landscapes using the instrument as a powerful spotting scope. Even the brightest deep sky objects will be visible to observers.

The Levenhuk Discovery Sky Trip ST70 is easy to operate: an optical tube is mounted on an alt-azimuth mount that allows you to move the tube up and down and from left to right. The telescope comes with many accessories: a Barlow lens, eyepieces with different focal lengths, an optical finderscope, a diagonal prism, and an adapter for a smartphone. You can adjust magnifications to explore the beauty of space and take photos to capture the results of your observations. A height-adjustable aluminum tripod easily adjusts to your height.

Unlike other refractors, the Levenhuk Discovery Sky Trip ST70 manages to stand out due to the small size of the optical tube. In comparison to other similar models, the tube is half as long as many others. Therefore, the telescope is easily transportable; you can even take it with you on a road trip. The kit includes a special-purpose backpack for safe transportation and many other accessories. Another advantage for travelers: a quick and easy setup.
