The Levenhuk Skyline PLUS 60T Telescope is a classic refractor suitable for enthusiastic young explorers of space.  It comes with an equatorial mount and an extended set of optical accessories – even a demanding user will appreciate capabilities of this telescope. You can observe phases of Venus, Jupiter's planetary ring, Saturn's rings, and lunar craters larger than 8km (5mi) diameter. The outer edge of the Solar system is less visible but discernible. T

The lenses, made of fully coated glass, transmit a sharp, detailed image without aberrations or fogging. An equatorial mount is used for operating the telescope. Equatorial mounts are more advanced and take some time to master. Once you've got it set up though, you will appreciate the advantage of being able to track objects on their paths across the sky. Locate objects using the optical finderscope with 5x magnification (not found on many telescope packages at this price point).

The durable mount is height-adjustable and easy to set up. An accessory tray serves dual functions as a place to keep your eyepieces and as a spreader bar keeping the mount's legs steady.

The kit includes optical accessories that allow to start observing right away. Three eyepieces provide you with an opportunity to quickly choose optimal magnification for exploring different astronomy objects, while a diagonal mirror helps observing terrestrial objects. 

Telescopes normally transmit an inverted image, which doesn't matter when observing the heavens, but makes terrestrial viewing inconvenient. However, the diagonal on this telescope provides an erect image, meaning you can use this scope to view objects in daylight as well. 

Features:

  • Classic refractor on an equatorial mount
  • Fully-coated glass optics
  • Three eyepieces and a diagonal mirror are included in the kit
  • Sturdy aluminum mount with an accessory tray
  • Ideal choice for exploring outer space and terrestrial landscapes

The kit includes:

  • Telescope optical tube
  • Equatorial mount
  • Aluminum tripod with an accessory tray
  • 5x24 optical finderscope
  • SR4mm (175x) eyepiece
  • H12.5mm (56x) eyepiece

Great Telescope for beginner

Astronomer myself, I choiced this telescope for my 5 years old son who wants to explore the Universe.... And I ve been very impressed by the global quality of this product... all the optics are good enough to watch planets and near Messier objects....It s a great deal for all beginner (young and even expert)...

Great Telescope Company

I thought my ED80 Triplet was nice but this ED102 FCD100 is awesome. Delivery and customer service was excellent.

Nice Apo and a Real Value

I bought this scope for an industrial client whose needs are industrial, not astronomical, and this Explore Scientific ED127 is intended to be a beam expander in various Interferometric testing setups. For this, optical quality must be high and the carbon fiber tube is a plus for thermal stability. My purchase of the Explore Scientific ED127 F7.5 APO Triplet through Telescope Space was straightforward and pleasant. Ryan made sure everything was smooth.
Upon receipt I tested the scope by looking at a power pole 700 feet away, one that I have used for many such tests. The star test from the insulator glints was good – the focus snap was crisp, the in-focus diffraction blur was round with a faint first ring. I did not look at the through focus balance with a narrow passband filter as it was obvious there was no SA3. Color correction is very good as you would expect with the glasses used. There is no color in focus, and only a hint of subtle color fringing in the just out of focus edges of details. Extended details on the pole were rendered as well as, or better than, with any similar scope I have used on this target – this includes TMB, Astrophysics, and Takahashi scopes.
The build quality of the carbon parts is gorgeous. The metal parts are good quality anodized machined. I would prefer machined tube rings as the cast ones supplied are a little chintzy compared to the rest of the scope. The rack and pinion focuser works well, but the feel is not as good as some stock friction focusers I’ve used. Considering the extra high weight capacity of the focuser the feel may be the price paid. Overall I think the mechanical appearance and function is in line with the price.
I would certainly consider the Explore Scientific ED APO FCD100 triplet scopes for my personal use. My transaction with Telescope Space was great and I will do business with them again.

Review on Firstlight AR 102mm f9.8 on EXOS NANO EQ3

A great package for the price! The mount is steady! The Optics excel, in that the resolution and contrast are everything to be expected in a quality refractor! H.B. Appleton, Hi.

The staff at Telescope Space were very supportive and helpful as well!
