Levenhuk Skyline BASE 100S is a well-balanced Newtonian reflector on an alt-azimuth mount. On the one hand, it is simple-to-operate and user-friendly even for beginner astronomers; on the other hand, it allows observing many deep-sky objects.
This telescope is popular with amateur astronomers who are not ready to operate a complicated telescope. Levenhuk Skyline BASE 100S will be of great interest to those who want to enter an endless world with nebulae, galaxies, and star clusters.
Though this telescope is more suitable for exploring deep space, you can also use it for observing the Moon and the Solar system planets. The kit includes two eyepieces, that can be interchanged in order to adjust the optics for observing different space objects. A 6x optical finder scope allows for pointing an optical tube precisely at the desired sky areas.
This telescope comes with an alt-azimuth mount, and it does not take much time for mastering. Levenhuk Skyline BASE 100S is operated as a classic spotting scope, by moving an optical tube to the left, to the right, up and down. A mount is fixed on a standard tripod made of aluminium and is sturdy even on rough surfaces. There is an accessory tray. The tripod features adjustable legs.
