Embark on a celestial journey with the Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ Reflector Telescope.
The Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ Reflector Telescope is a precision instrument. Featuring a manual German Equatorial (EQ) Mount, the AstroMaster 130EQ enables accurate tracking during long-exposure astrophotography. After a polar alignment, use the included slow motion controls to precisely maneuver across the sky in the Right Ascension (RA) and Declination (DEC) axes as the Earth rotates.
Impressive views at an excellent price.
With a generous 130mm (5-inch) aperture and a focal ratio of f/5.0, the 130EQ is a great telescope for entry-level deep sky photography. But this doesn't mean that you can't use it for observation too! Take it out to a dark sky site and experience impressive views of the Moon, star clusters and brighter deep sky objects (DSOs).
For an unforgettable nighttime experience, the AstroMaster 130 comes complete with essential accessories. Included are 20mm and 10mm eyepieces, allowing for switchable magnification for both lower and higher-powered views.
With a Newtonian Reflector design, the 130EQ Reflector Telescope is remarkably portable, weighing in at only 7.71kg when assembled.
With Starry Night Software included.
To top it off, the AstroMaster includes all-inclusive access to Celestron's Starry Night Software. Never stop exploring the universe, even during cloudy nights, with Starry Night's huge database of 36,000 celestial objects. Learn the night sky like the back of your hand with printable sky maps, an interactive SkyGuide, high-quality 3D Models and a whole lot more.
