Levenhuk Travel Sun 50 overview

  • 1Description

Designed for beginner astronomers, the Levenhuk Skyline Travel Sun 50 50mm f/7 Refractor Telescope can be used for regular nighttime viewing or, with the simple installation of the included filter, observing the sun. The white-light filter fits on the front of the optical tube (OTA) and allows for safe viewing of sunspots, granulations, planetary transits, and all phases of solar eclipses. With the filter removed, the telescope can be used to view celestial subjects such as the moon.

The OTA is attached to a manual alt-azimuth mount equipped with a slow-motion handle to increase tracking precision and reduce vibrations. Supporting the mount and OTA is an adjustable height aluminum tripod. A suite of accessories are included to enrich your viewing experiences including high and low power eyepieces, a Barlow lens that triples the power of each eyepiece, a 45° diagonal that improves viewing comfort, and a backpack to put everything in and safely transport it.

Optical Tube Assembly
  • Removable solar filter allows the scope to be used day or night
  • 50mm aperture is ideal for viewing details of the moon and sun
  • 360mm focal length produces a moderate magnification potential while still being light and highly portable
  • Refractor-style optical tube is simple to use and maintain
  • Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics improve light transmission, color representation, resolution, and contrast
  • Sturdy and reliable rack and pinion focuser, accepts standard 1.25" eyepieces and accessories
Mount and Tripod
  • Simple manual alt-azimuth design is easy to set up and use
  • Photo-style head enables easy pan and tilt for finding and tracking your subject
  • Control handle improves tracking precision with reduced vibrations
  • Adjustable height from 16 to 49" to accommodate a variety of viewing positions and users
  • Lightweight aluminum is easy to transport and carry
  • Three leg sections allow it to be collapsed very small
  • Easy and fast flip-lever leg section latches
