Levenhuk Strike 120 PLUS Telescope is a Newtonian reflector that makes an excellent choice for any beginning astronomer. The telescope features a 114-mm primary mirror diameter and a focal length of 700 mm. High-quality optics with a special coating allow you to see a large variety of astronomical objects: from lunar mountains and lunar craters with a diameter of about 3 miles to globular clusters.
Levenhuk Strike 120 PLUS is a Newtonian reflector. The reflecting optical design of the telescope provides quality images free of chromatic aberrations. Optical elements are covered with a special high-reflective aluminum coating, which minimizes light loss inside the telescope, and thus allows it to produce bright and crisp images.
The kit of the Levenhuk Strike 120 PLUS telescope includes two eyepieces. The KF 25 eyepiece provides lower magnification power and may be used for general observations and locating celestial objects. The second eyepiece – Zoom 6.8-16 mm – features variable focal length and magnification. It is ideally suited for detailed study of astronomical objects. The kit also contains an achromatic 2x Barlow lens that will help you significantly extend the range of the telescope’s magnifications. The Red Dot finder also included in the kit will make locating necessary objects in the sky a lot easier.
Mount and tripod
Levenhuk Strike 120 PLUS Telescope is installed on a German equatorial mount. This type of mount has two axes of rotation: the right ascension (RA) axis and declination (DEC) axis. By setting the RA axis parallel to the Earth’s axis of rotation you can easily follow astronomical objects.
The reinforced metal tripod is highly durable and provides a stable base for the instrument.
The advanced kit of this model allows you to use it to the fullest. In addition to optical accessories the kit includes print and electronic materials that will be interesting and useful not only for beginners but also for experienced astronomers. In the kit you will also find a convenient telescope case.
