Designed for easy transport and quick set up, the Levenhuk Skyline Travel 80 80mm f/5 Refractor Telescope is a complete observation rig for making observations of the moon and planets at night, and to serve as a conventional spotting scope during the day. The scope features a respectable 80mm aperture with a reliable and virtually maintenance-free refractor optical tube assembly (OTA) with a short 400mm focal length and fast f/5 focal ratio. Its rack-and-pinion focuser accepts any 1.25" accessories like the two included eyepieces, Barlow lens, and 45° erect-image diagonal.

Supporting the OTA and accessories is a manual alt-az mount with a simple thumbscrew to connect the OTA to the photo-style head for fast set up and break down. The mount is attached to an adjustable-height 3-stage aluminum tripod. Levenhuk includes a shoulder bag to safely store and easily carry all the components in this kit including the OTA and tripod, with room for all the included accessories. Versatile, powerful, and easy to use, the Levenhuk Skyline Travel 80 is ready to take in the splendor of the night sky, or to enjoy boats on the bay in your backyard or far off the grid.
