**EQ mounts can be frustrating for anyone, this type of mount is recommended for older children with parental assistance.
Levenhuk Skyline 90x900 EQ is a refractor with a large aperture, and the (more complicated) EQ2 mount perfect for astrophotograpy!
We recommend parental assistance with this telescope. The equatorial mount, as opposed to an azimuth, compensates for the rotation of the
Earth and allows a more precise tracking of astronomical objects, keeping them within sight through the eyepiece. The aluminum tripod has adjustable height.
Under ideal condition (low humidity, clear skies, and the higher the elevation the better) you will be able to see planets, double stars,
globular clusters and diffuse nebulae. Uranus and Neptune appear in the form of small disks, but closer planets will be visible in more detail.
For example, you will be able to distinguish Mars’ polar caps, the structure of sunspots and granulation on the Sun. Also, the telescope is
good for lunar exploration if you want to see the craters. Under good conditions, all the Messier objects and bright NGC can be observed.

The telescope has a factory default adjustment and does not require additional and frequent adjustment, but this mount is more
complicated than an altazimuth and parental assistance is recommended when needed. The high-res images are high contrast and sharp
and without chromatic aberration. Highly detailed pictures even at large aperture. Can be used for photographing the Moon and planets.
Suitable for both terrestrial and astronomical observations. Ideal for planetary observations and observations of binary stars. Suitable for beginners.
