Levenhuk Strike 900 PRO is the entry-level model of the Strike PRO series. It has a high-quality achromatic objective lens that provides bright and sharp images with minimal chromatic aberrations. This is a very compact and lightweight model and, with the telescope case included in its advanced kit, can be easily transported when you travel. You can observe stars of up to 11.8 stellar magnitude with this telescope thanks to its 90-mm (3.5-in) objective lens, which means that it can be used for planetary observations, as well as study of deep-sky objects. With Levenhuk Strike 900 PRO you can see all the wonders of our universe, from Solar System planets to deep-sky objects.
Levenhuk Strike 900 PRO Telescope will become indispensable for experienced astronomers. Its tube is set up on a German equatorial mount EQ2, complete with slow-motion controls. You have to align an equatorial mount before your observations, but it is far more useful than an altazimuth mount during observations of moving objects. It has special setting circles that allow you to point your telescope to a celestial object using its celestial coordinates. It also compensates for the daily rotation of Earth with just a turn of a slow-motion control. You can even install an equatorial computerized drive system! The mount is set up on an adjustable tripod with an accessory tray.
