Levenhuk Skyline Travel 50 50mm f/7 Alt-Az Refractor Telescope
Key Features
  • 50mm Refractor OTA
  • 360mm Focal Length, f/7 Focal Ratio
  • Fully Multi-Coated Optics
  • Sturdy Rack-and-Pinion Focuser
The Levenhuk Skyline Travel 50 50mm f/7 Alt-Az Refractor Telescope is designed for portability and ease-of-use for both astronomical and terrestrial observations. Its refractor-style optical tube has a respectable aperture that gathers copious amounts of light for viewing the moon, planets, and bright deep sky objects like stars and clusters; and a shorter focal length that produces a moderate magnification potential. A photo-style alt-azimuth pan/tilt head easily mounts the optical tube assembly (OTA) with a simple screw, has a control handle to enable smooth movement, and locks the altitude in place for hands-free use to minimize vibration.

The Levenhuk Skyline Travel 50 50mm f/7 Alt-Az Refractor Telescope is designed for portability and ease-of-use for both astronomical and terrestrial observations. Its refractor-style optical tube has a respectable aperture that gathers copious amounts of light for viewing the moon, planets, and bright deep sky objects like stars and clusters; and a shorter focal length that produces a moderate magnification potential. A photo-style alt-azimuth pan/tilt head easily mounts the optical tube assembly (OTA) with a simple screw, has a control handle to enable smooth movement, and locks the altitude in place for hands-free use to minimize vibration.

Supporting it all is a photo-style tripod that collapses low enough for tabletop use and extends to full-sized height. The included prism corrects the view, enabling the scope to be used as a conventional terrestrial spotting scope, and it comes with two eyepieces offering low 18x and high 45x magnifications, although any 1.25" astronomical eyepiece may be used. Everything in this kit — OTA, tripod, head, and accessories — fit inside the included backpack to make it as portable and easy-to-carry as possible.

Optical Tube

  • 50mm aperture is ideal for lunar and planetary viewing, and for observing bright deep-sky objects such as stars, star clusters, and nebulae
  • 360mm focal length keeps the overall length relatively short to be easier to set up and transport
  • Refractor optical design produces clearer views with reduced chromatic aberration and fringing versus reflector designs
  • Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics improve light transmission, color rendition, sharpness, and contrast
  • Reliable and sturdy rack-and-pinion focuser
  • Integrated dew shield prevents condensation at night, and minimizes glare during the day

Mount and Tripod

Mount:
  • Manual pan/tilt photo-style alt-azimuth
  • Control handle for easier adjustment and tracking
  • Locking handle sets altitude
  • Integrated level
Tripod:
  • Easy-use photo-style
  • Lightweight and durable aluminum legs
  • Four leg sections
  • Adjustable height from 15.5-49" (40-125cm) allows it to be set on a table or extended to full height
  • Simple snap-locks allow for fast setup and breakdown

Included Accessories

Eyepieces:
  • 1.25" diameter barrel accepts most astronomical filters
  • 8mm produces high 45x power
  • Low-power 20mm yields 18x magnification
Diagonal:
  • Integrated erecting prism corrects view for terrestrial use
  • 1.25" eyepiece holder to accept larger, more popular eyepieces
  • 45° angle puts head in comfortable position for celestial and terrestrial viewing
Barlow lens:
  • 3x magnification triples the power of any eyepiece
  • 1.25" snout and holder makes it compatible with most eyepieces, accessories, and eyepiece holders
Finderscope:
  • 2x magnification produces a wide field of view to make finding subjects easy and star-hopping navigation faster
  • Straight-through viewing
Backpack:
  • Water- and tear-resistant canvas
