Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK is a catadioptric telescope of Maksutov-Cassegrain design that delivers high-quality views while remaining compact and lightweight. The 102-millimeter (4-inch) aperture gathers 28% more light than a 90-millimeter (3.5-inch) counterpart, and the telescope's long focal length – 1300 millimeters (51 inches) – allows for high magnifications that deliver sharp images during observations and astrophotography. This telescope may also be used for observations of deep-sky objects, like planetary nebulae and star clusters. With the help of an erecting prism (purchased separately), you can turn your telescope into a powerful spotting scope for terrestrial observations. It can even be used as a long-focus lens for SLR cameras, and is adaptable to regular tripods.

The lenses and mirrors are fully multi-coated, which allows for maximum light-gathering and increases their service life. The sturdy and lightweight aluminum tube is set up on an equatorial mount with slow-motion controls. You can also install the equatorial computerized drive system (purchased separately) on your mount. This mount is equipped with setting circles which – after a quick adjustment – allow for locating objects by their celestial coordinates and tracking them with just a turn of an equatorial control. The adjustable height tripod has a practical accessory tray where you can store all your tools. The Red Dot finder scope allows you to quickly navigate to the desired location. The kit includes 10-millimeter (0.4-inch) and 25-millimeter (0.98-inch) eyepieces with 52-degree field of view of 130x and 52x magnification, respectively. The lenses are made of glass and are fully multi-coated. Focusing your telescope is as easy as adjusting the primary mirror with a move of the smooth-turning knob. The rack-and-pinion focuser is made of stainless steel and accepts 31.75-millimeter (1.25-inch) eyepieces; so you can use eyepieces purchased separately – not just those supplied with the kit – therefore increasing the magnification to the highest practical power of 200x. The focuser has the standard T-thread, which allows you to attach an SLR camera using an adapter and use your telescope for astrophotography.

Levenhuk Skyline PRO series was designed for advanced and demanding astronomers and includes a range of different models. The one thing in common is maximum precision and reliability during observations and astrophotography, high-quality materials and optics.

What solar filters will fit the Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK?
Customer service:
Levenhuk Solar Filter for 105 mm MAK Telescopes - .
Shawn Hansen (2016.12.07)
Which telescope is better? Levenhuk strike pro 1000 or Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK?
Customer service:
Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK and Levenhuk Strike 1000 PRO telescopes are identical. The only difference is their accessory sets. Levenhuk Strike 1000 PRO telescope comes with an extended accessory kit: additional eyepiece, Barlow lens, filters, case, educational materials, etc.
Patrick Morse (2016.11.13)
which telescope is better Levenhuk Strike 950 PRO or Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK
Customer service:
Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK is preferable due to its larger lens diameter.
Helene Mathis (2016.07.04)
Hi! What optical filters for planetary viewing should I buy? I've searched through many of them, but haven't found any suitable ones (all I had seen were for telescopes with 150mm and higher aperture).
Customer service:
Please consider Solar System Levenhuk F4 Filter Set - .
Lorenzo (2016.06.20)
when I use 10mm eyepiece (supplied with the telescope) even the slightest touch cause image shaking. Why this happens? Is this the mount? Should it be like this?
Customer service:
This is quite a common situation. Magnification with 10mm eyepiece is quite powerful, therefore images can shake.
Neal Krause (2015.07.30)
Hi! I'm planning to buy this telescope model. Is it suitable for astrophotography?
Customer service:
Yes, Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK Telescope is perfect for astrophotography.
Nicolas (2015.05.28)
I can't choose between this model and 90-millimeter refractor. I'm going to observe the Moon and planets... sharp quality image is a must! In the article ''Things you can see with a telescope based on its aperture'' 80-90mm refractors are in the same group with 90-125mm catadioptric telescopes. It means it's better to buy 90mm refractor than this telescope, right? their capabilities are the same, but refractor is like 10 times cheaper than 105 MAK... tell me if I am wrong. I just want to find an ideal price/quality option. So now I'm choosing between Strike 90 and this model.
And one more question... In the article I noticed one curious thing... refractors that are gathered together with reflector and catadioptric telescopes in sections always have smaller aperture than other telescope types. As I figured it must mean that reflectors and catadioptric telescopes lose in comparison with refractors... Is it a fair conclusion?
Thank you in advance!!!
Customer service:
These telescopes are in the same group, but Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK Telescope has superior optics quality and delivers sharper, more detailed views of observed objects, that is especially noticeable at high magnifications. Moreover, Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK Telescope features advanced equatorial mount.

Yes, catadioptric telescopes gather less light than telescopes of other types with the same aperture (about 65-75% while refractors gather 90%). Advantages of catadioptric telescopes: large focal length; despite their size - convenient for maximum magnifications (planetary observations); almost no color and geometric distortion.
Max Jones (2015.01.27)
I have one more question about skyline pro 105: what kind of adapter do I need to connect my Nikon D3100. It’s also a bit unclear to me where is it supposed to go? I mean do I connect it to the eyepiece or to the tube itself somehow? I would like to take pictures with maximum possible magnification.
Customer service:
To connect your camera to the Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK you need a T-ring for Nikon cameras. T-ring is connected to the camera from one side and to the telescope's focuser from the other.
Kevin Edwards (2015.01.16)
Good day, do you have a motor drive I can use with Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK?

Wade Bates (2015.01.10)
Hi, Levenhuk!:) I need an instrument that I will be able to use for astrophotography in future. Thank you!
Customer service:
Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK Telescope is the perfect choice for astrophotography.
Rob (2015.01.09)
One more question how do you make sure you have the lifetime warranty in tact with the company?
Customer service:
All Levenhuk telescopes purchased directly from us or from one of our authorized dealers qualify for the lifetime warranty.
Rob (2015.01.09)
Hello I bought a MAK 105 for Christmas for my son. I would like to know what is the highest mm. of lens can the 105 use before it starts to distort the images. Also what is a good book to locate different sky objects in the sky. THANKS in advance.
Customer service:
Hi Rob,
Thanks for the query.
In this case, to calculate the highest mm. of an eyepiece, we need to divide the telescope's focal length by the highest practical power which makes it 6.37mm.
I doubt that an eyepiece with exactly the same focal length exists so you need to choose one of the closest, for example, Levenhuk Plössl 6.3 mm Eyepiece.
I'd recommend to check out a "See it all!" Astronomer's Handbook which includes information on 280 celestial objects. You may find it here at
cheryl (2014.04.23)
Hello again! Levenhuk Ra 250N Dob comparing to this model... isn't the first one better? And why? Thanks in advance!
Customer service:
Due to larger objective lens diameter and therefore greater maximum useful magnification, Levenhuk Ra 250N Dob will be preferable. But Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK is a lot more compact and versatile model.
cheryl (2014.04.22)
I'm sorry, I forgot to say in the previous message that portability and compact size aren't that important. The most important thing is good quality of produced images, Levenhuk Skyline 130x900 has larger objective lens diameter and some other characteristics are better... that's why I'm confused a little.
Customer service:
Levenhuk Skyline 130x900 model is more suitable for observing deep-sky objects. Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK will be the preferable choice due to its versatility.
cheryl (2014.04.22)
Could you please help me... I've decided to purchase a telescope as a present for my husband's birthday. And I really need your professional opinion. I'm choosing between Levenhuk Skyline 130x900 and Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK models, maybe you would recommend something else. Some details: for observations in the countryside, $500 aproximately, it should be suitable for observing distant galaxies as well as the Moon's craters, Saturn's rings, i'd like it to be sturdy and reliable, so he can improve his astronomy skills using the same telescope only purchasing additional accessories. We have Canon 5D Mark III camera... is it suitable for this telescope or is it better to purchase original Levenhuk camera? As I get it I will need a T-ring to attach it to the telescope... Also which additional accessories should I buy to get the maximum out of the telescope during planetary observations? My husband is not a beginner, he had a little experience with telescopes some time ago, so I don't want to dissapoint him. Thanks in advance for answering all of these questions and for your patience :)
Customer service:
Thank you for your feedback. We would recommend Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK due to its versatility - this telescope performs equally great during planetary observations as well as during studying deep-sky objects. To attach your camera to this telescope you will need a T-ring, but you can buy a special camera for telescope as well: . For planetary observations we recommend you the following filter set: Solar System Levenhuk F8 Filter Set - .
Judy Gray (2014.01.15)
Please help me to decide: Skyline PRO 90 MAK or Skyline PRO 105 MAK? I want to do astrophotography, which one is better for such purpose? I've already placed an order for 90 MAK but then I thought maybe 105 MAK is better?
Customer service:
Levenhuk Skyline PRO 90 MAK and Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK telescopes are both pretty good for astrophotography. Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK is better due to the larger objective lens diameter, which is usually a main criteria when choosing a telescope.
Bobby (2014.01.14)
Hey there, Levenhuk! It's a good model, so here's a couple of questions: 1 - optics is glass, right?? 2 - I've heard that it's more frostproof compared to other models, is that so? 3 - How's the build quality, is it really good, won't something break? And is it suitable for observing nature and so on? I'd like to hear your honest opinion on this telescope! Thanks a lot in advance!!!! for answering I mean...
Customer service:
Yes, optics of Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK Telescope is made of glass and has a full multi-layer coating which allows for maximum light-gathering. This model also features high build quality and high quality of used materials which allow for frost resistance and durability. Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK may be successfully used for landscape observations.
Albert Weaver (2013.12.18)
Kindly advise me on which model to choose this one or Levenhuk strike 950 pro? Please explain why.
Customer service:
We recommend you to decide in favor of the Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK telescope because of its bigger objective lens diameter.
Stacy Merrill (2013.10.22)
I want to buy a telescope for a lifetime (at least for 10 years). Since I'm a beginner I'd like to see images of Solar Sysrtem as well as deep-sky objects. Is is reasonable to choose mirror a little bigger so I can see more?
Customer service:
Yes, it is reasonable; the larger the telescope's mirror, the larger the amount of light is gathers, the higher magnification and the brighter image you will get.
Edward Emch (2013.10.02)
Hello! Tell me the total weight of this telescope with a mount. al weight of this telescope with a mount.
Customer service:
The total weight of the Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK Telescope with a mount is 19.8 lb.
Chris McMeeking (2013.09.20)
Ok thank you. And what if I will use lenses with higher magnification? For instance, 5x, so will I get quality magnification (practical power)? And yes also should I set barlow lens on the lenses or separately?
Customer service:
The Barlow Lens should be inserted in a jack for eyepieces, and the eyepiece itself in the Barlow lens. 5x Barlow lens is capable of increasing your telescope's power 5 times. Because of high magnification power, 5x Barlow lens is better suited for Newtonian reflectors of middle- and high-aperture value.
Chris McMeeking (2013.09.13)
Hi! Last summer I bought this telescope. In general, I'm happy with it (steady, convenient in handling). The question: I would like to observe objects at high magnification, what lenses do I need?
Customer service:
We recommend you order 2x Barlow lens:
Phill (2013.09.11)
The model Levenhuk Strike 1000 PRO is the same as the Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK: the only difference is in the kit? (the first one comes with more accessories)?
Customer service:
Yes, it is.
Patrick (2013.08.18)
Good afternoon! One more question. I bought a digital camera to this telescope. I connect it with the help of a T-ring. So the question is, can I increase magnification somehow for astro shooting? I want to take pictures at the same increase as 6.3 mm eyepiece gives or at least 10 mm. Do you have any accessories for that?
Customer service:
Produced magnification depends on the specifications of the camera.
Kate Harrison (2013.08.16)
Hi. I'm choosing between Bresser Messier AR-90 90/900 (exos 1) and Levenhuk Skyline PRO 105 MAK which one would you recommend?
Customer service:
We would recommend Levenhuk Skyline PRO 150 MAK, it will be preferable due to its objective lens diameter and optical design.
Patrick (2013.06.07)
so I purchased this instrument. the very first night I was lucky to see Saturn. The rings were clearly seen. I observed the Moon as well. Although the sky was covered by clouds and fog still it was really impressive! I'm looking forward for clear skies!
Customer service:
Thank you for your feedback!
Patrick (2013.05.31)
Hello! I also would like to know if I can attach a servo drive with an autoguider to this telescope? If yes, what can you suggest? Thank you:)
