Features

 

Benefits

  • Telescope Type: Reflector
  • A mirror-based telescope that operates by reflecting light into focus. This design is mainly for astronomical viewing because it inverts the image and provides a large light grasp for high contrast and resolution.
  • Focal Length: 650 mm
  • Mount Type: German Equatorial Mount
  • Uses a counterweight opposite the telescope to counterbalance the weight of the telescope. The telescope may be polar aligned to track the sky and compensate for the Earth's rotation.

Comments about Celestron AstroMaster 130 EQ Telescope:

Up to 50x views are crisp. Good FOV at low power and a bright image. Great for deep space, except for close doubles. A suplement for your refractor scope. Fair to good on moon & planets.
