Celestron AstroMaster 130 EQ Equatorial Reflector Telescope 31045 Product Info

Celestron AstroMaster 130 EQ Equatorial Reflector Telescope 31045 is imagea dual-purpose telescope that is great for both terrestrial and celestial viewing. The Celestron Astro Master 130 EQ Telescope produces bright and clear images of the Moon and planets through the telescope's fully coated lens. The Celestron Astro Master 130 EQ Telescope w/ Equatorial Mount has a large 130mm mirror, making it a great medium-sized telescope that will allow the user room to grow in astronomy. This 130mm mirror is the largest mirror in the AstroMaster Series, and will easily provide enough light to see the moons of Jupiter, rings of Saturn, star clusters, and nebulae. These telescopes come with two telescope eyepieces of 50x and 100x magnification, which can pull in objects both near and far away. Celestron AstroMaster 130 EQ Telescopes have an Equatorial mount that allow the user to follow objects in the sky much easier than an Altazimuth (Alt-az) Mount. Equatorial mounts use a set of counterweights that balances the telescope as it moves, making the movement more smooth. This is also very effective in high magnifications, when the smallest nudge of the telescope will greatly affect the viewing area. In addition, these Celestron AstroMaster Telescopes have the reflector design, which is favored by astronomers with their more advanced setup and controls, when compared to a Refractor telescope. These telescopes come with a tripod with 1.25" thick steel legs, providing a rigid and stable platform. These features of the Celestron AstroMaster 130 EQ Equatorial Reflector Telescope 31045 make it a great telescope for serious beginners and intermediate users.

Most Recent Review I hope for more! by Legacy Reviewer, May 19, 2009
The counter weights are too heavy for the fine adjustment screws. The planetary optics are very poor. I would have expected to be informed that different optics would need to be added to see anything more than views that I could see with my binocul...

Most Recent Review A Useful Rich-Field 'scope by Legacy Reviewer, January 16, 2009
I have replaced the red-dot finder with a Rigel Quickfinder, and changed to a sturdy Alt-az tripod mount. After careful collimation, good view obtained up to 55-60X. A good aftermarket eyepiece helped a great deal. Not the best choice for planets ...
