This telescope is a good starting point for new amateur astronomers. With 30% more light gathering capacity than a 114 mm telescope, even more fascinating celestial objects can be observed by amateur astronomer newbies. The 130 mm aperture and 650 mm focal length high-performance optics allow you to observe many nebulae and other DSOs. With an f5 aperture ratio, the telescope is also ideal for wide field observing. Breathtakingly beautiful Open clusters are well worth seeking out too. Its short length means that the telescope is very stable, even on smaller mounts, with vibrations damping down very quickly. The external design can also be considered a real gem, boasting an elegant design of the highest calibre.
- 344X light gathering power
- vibration resistant and wind insensitive due to compact design
- diffraction limited parabolic primary mirror
- high contrast image due to extra-thin secondary spider vanes
- highly portable and quickly assembled
The mounting EQ-2:
This parallytic mounting bares already the opportunity to arrange optics exactely to the polestar. For each watching-place, the right pole-height/geographic amplitude can be set. The objects can be set and tracked with fine movements in the right ascension- and declination-axe.
The aluminium three leg-tripod is extendable in a height from 71 cm up to 121 cm.
