Levenhuk Discovery Sky Trip ST80 Telescope with book is everything that an aspiring astronomer is dreaming of. A compact telescope-refractor is perfect for your first experience with outer space, out-of-town trips, and even for entry-level astrophotography. The interesting knowledge book "Space. Non-Empty Emptiness" contains all of the basic theory you need to know about stargazing. The device is great for lunar, planetary, and terrestrial observations. Bright deep sky objects such as nebulae and distant galaxies are easily visible. The best telescope in its series: a maximum of 160x magnification.

The Levenhuk Discovery Sky Trip ST80 is easy to operate as a telescope tube is mounted on a simple alt-azimuthal mount for azimuth and elevation movements. The telescope comes with many optical accessories: a Barlow lens, eyepieces, a finderscope, and a diagonal prism. There is an adapter for a smartphone for taking photos and videos. You can explore the possibilities of your first telescope by adjusting the settings to observe various celestial bodies, record your results, and share them with your friends. A small built-in compass makes it easier to navigate on land.

The benefit of the telescope is a small-size tube. In comparison to other refractors, the optical tube is half as long as many others. In addition, the telescope is simple and quick to set up. This makes it ideal for road trips, weekend trips to the countryside, and out-of-town festivals for astrophotographers. The device and accessories are conveniently stored in a bag, so the device can be transported safely. The height-adjustable secure tripod, made of aluminum and is equipped with an accessory tray, easily adjusts to the height of an observer.
