Meade DS-2130ATS-TC 130mm 5.0" GoTo Computerized AutoStar Altazimuth Reflector Telescopes Product Info

The Meade DS-2130ATS 5" 130mm Computer Telescope Newtonian Reflector is a powerful computer-guided telescope that will takeimage you on a guided tour of the night sky. The DS-2130ATS Telescope features a large 5" 130mm aperture, the most light-gathering capability of any DS-2000 Series Telescopes. With the 5 inch aperture, you can enter the true realm of the galaxies. Through the telescope, more surface detail in planets and more cloud structure in nebulas can be seen. The largest aperture in the DS-2000 family also offers brighter views of planets, clusters, nebulas, and galaxies. DS2130 ATS Telescopes by Meade include the Meade LNT Auto-align and the critically acclaimed Meade AutoStar with 9-speed controller and automatic GO TO capability to any of over 1400 celestial objects.

Meade Autostar #494

Meade Auto-Align gives Meade DS Telescopes the same precision, ease-of-use, and accuracy of Telescopes costing hundreds and even thousands of dollar more. Using Automatic Alignment could not be easier. There is no time and date to enter, and no scrolling through a long list of locations. Just enter your Zip Code into the Meade AutoStar and Auto Align automatically aligns your Meade Telescope and finds two fine-tuning stars for you. Center these two stars and you are ready to tour the universe.

The LNT (Level North Technology) Module of DS 2130 ATS 130mm Reflector Meade Telescope features electronic compass, electronic level, precise time, advanced red projection-point SmartFinder. The Meade Smart Finder helps novices with one of the early frustrating parts of astronomy: Centering objects in the finder scope. This is achieved by centering the red dot on the object you want to see. Then move to your telescope 's eyepiece for a closer look. The SmartFinder finder scope is upgraded from the previous generation of DS-2000 telescopes with new multi-coated optics for locating objects quick and easy.

The Meade Reflecting Telescope DS-2130 ATS features the DS-2000 Altazimuth mount, providing a more fluent motion in altitude and azimuth. The DS-2000 Altazimuth mount also has great accuracy on automatic "Go-To", bringing stars even closer to the center of the eyepiece. Meade Telescope DS2130ATS 5" Reflector comes with quick release adjustable aluminum tripod with accessory shelf. This tripod is more sturdy and robust, with thicker and more solid legs than the previous generation of DS-2000 telescopes. Meade Digital Series 130mm Computerized GoTo Telescope includes everything you need to get started with astronomy: Super Plossl 26mm and 9.7mm 1.25" eyepieces, and free planetarium software.

Meade DS 2130 ATS 130 mm GoTo Reflector Telescope w/ Meade Autostar Computer Controller, SmartFinder is a great beginner telescope, and for users of any level.

Was a Christmas present. Had been pre-opened. Wife was very disappointed that it was not new. It cost $85.00 to insure and return. Be sure you know what you are getting. Pros: Star, Nebulae, Planet Location Cons: Involved alignment process
