The Levenhuk Skyline BASE 60T is a refractor used for observing Moon craters, phases of Venus, dim and double stars, or terrestrial objects. Levenhuk Skyline BASE 60T is suitable for observing the beauties of the Universe but is it especially great for exploring outer space. That is why a beginner astronomer or a kid interested in science will distinguish this telescope among similar models. Due to its simple operation and extended kit, this telescope is excellent for first observations and will be a desired gift for many astronomy enthusiasts.

Inside the telescope, there are fully coated glass optics. The lenses transmit a sharp and contrast image, do not fog up, and deliver even dim objects in good quality. The optical tube is mounted on an alt-azimuth mount. It does not take much time to learn its operating principle: even a kid will quickly figure out how to operate the telescope. An optical finderscope helps you track the objects in the sky or on the horizon. It comes in the kit and provides a 5x magnification.

Apart from the finderscope, there are also other accessories in the box. Two eyepieces are necessary for the correct magnification choice. An eyepiece with a short focal length increases the magnification up to 175x, the other eyepiece with a long focal length provides a 35x magnification. The higher magnification, the more detailed object you can see; low magnification allows observing extended objects. The kit includes a diagonal prism. This accessory is used for studying terrestrial objects. Telescopes deliver a distorted image (flipped upside down), which is unsuitable for terrestrial observations. A diagonal prism corrects this distortion and makes the image appear in the normal way.

An aluminum tripod is used for mounting the telescope. It is stable and reliable. Due to its legs with adjustable height, the tripod stands steadily even on a rough surface. There is an accessory tray included.
