Levenhuk Skyline Travel 70 Telescope is a compact and lightweight refractor telescope on an alt-azimuth mount that is easy to take on outdoor adventures. It comes with a convenient backpack where the telescope, its mount, any optical accessories, and a tripod perfectly fit in it. This telescope is perfect for studying the solar system’s planets and the Moon. As for terrestrial observations, it can replace a powerful spotting scope. You will be able to explore deep space with Levenhuk Skyline Travel 70 as well.

The main feature of Levenhuk Skyline Travel 70 is a shortened optical tube. It is almost half the size of most other refractor tubes. Due to this feature, the telescope is convenient to take wherever you go as it does not take up much space. Moreover, it is not heavy – the telescope is designed to be as lightweight as possible. The mount is easy to operate. It won’t be a problem even for beginner users. To point a telescope at an astronomical object of interest, you just need to move its tube vertically or horizontally along an altitude or azimuth axis. The tripod is made of light aluminum and has adjustable height.

The kit includes all of the necessary accessories for observations: an optical finder, a Barlow lens, a diagonal prism, and two eyepieces. The maximum magnification with the included accessories is up to 120x.
