Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ MD Telescope with Motor Drive 31051 130 EQ Telescopes Product Info

Celestron AstroMaster 130 EQ Equatorial MD Motor Drive Reflector Telescope 31051 is a dual-purpose telescope that is great for both terrestrial and celestial viewing. imageThe Astro Master 130 EQ MD Telescope by Celestron includes a motor drive for automatic tracking, and produces bright and clear images of the Moon and planets through the telescope's Fully Coated Lens. The Reflector Telescope has a large 130mm Mirror, making it a great medium-sized telescope that will allow the user room to grow in astronomy. This 130 mm 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 Celestron 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-MD 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.

These Celestron AstroMaster Telescopes are a Reflector telescope 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 130EQ MD Motor Drive Equatorial Reflector Telescope 31051 make it a great telescope for serious beginners and intermediate users.

The Celestron AstroMaster 130 EQ Equatorial MD Motor Drive Reflector Telescope 31051 is also available without a motor drive: Celestron AstroMaster 130 EQ Telescope 31045

Most Recent Review paying twice for your telescope by Legacy Reviewer, January 27, 2012
Celestron requires you pay to ship the tripod to them when you recieved it broken, in effect making you pay an extra 30 bucks to get it fixed because of the crappy packaging layout they use to ship it. The eye piece lays against the clamps on the tri...
