Each primary mirror in the Sky Watcher LightChariot 130 AZ is fabricated to exacting standards of smoothness and optical correction by a skilled optician ensuring premium optical performance. Aluminum is vacuum deposited on each primary and diagonal mirror surface and then over coated with hard quartz for protection.
The 130mm lens of the SW 130N-AZ Light Chariot really shines when viewing objects in deep space. Faint globular clusters that look like spots of fuzziness in smaller telescopes become vibrant images full of detail to examine. Newtonian refractors in the Light Chariot 130 AZ offer excellent light gathering and detail for far away celestial objects, but are not recommended for land applications due to their awkward terrestrial image orientation.
