Levenhuk Skyline BASE 50T Telescope
Refractor. Aperture: 50mm. Focal length: 600mm
Levenhuk Skyline BASE 50T Telescope is a "junior" model in the Levenhuk Skyline BASE product line, which is designed for beginner astronomers. This refractor is ideal for the first steps in astronomy: It is easy to assemble, the basic accessories are included in the kit and, moreover, even a kid can easily learn to use this telescope. With Levenhuk Skyline BASE 50T, you can observe terrestrial objects, the Moon, and the planets of the solar system.
The lenses in the refractor are made of glass and are fully coated. Due to that, the telescope provides a sharp and high-contrast image even at maximum magnification. To locate celestial objects, the telescope uses a classical optical finderscope with 5x magnification. An alt-azimuth mount requires no special operating skills and allows for quick pointing at an astronomical object of interest.
The kit includes several eyepieces and a Barlow lens. A diagonal mirror is another accessory that is necessary for terrestrial observations. It allows for observing the objects as usual (upright), i.e. when telescopes flip the image upside down, the diagonal mirror compensates for that.
The telescope is mounted on a lightweight aluminum tripod. The tripod legs height is adjustable, which allows for adapting the telescope to the observer's height. An accessory tray can be easily fixed onto a tripod. You can put additional eyepieces, a star chart, compass, and any small items on it.
