Vixen R130S Newtonian reflector telescope TS-8695 Product Info

Vixen R130S Newtonian reflector telescope makes an excellent "serious" beginner's telescope with its full image5.1" of aperture. Vixen R130S telescope features fast f/5.5 optical system that is great for wide-field viewing and imaging of extended objects.

If you're looking for a high quality Newtonian reflector, the R-series Vixen telescopes is made for you. The R-series Vixen telescopes offer all the traditional advantages of the Newtonian - freedom from chromatic aberration (color fringing) and the most aperture for the money - but R-series Vixen telescopes also incorporate a unique sliding focus mount which allows the use of a smaller secondary mirror. This allows for less light loss than a conventional Newtonian reflector.

Vixen R130S Newtonian reflector telescope is the optical assembly only without a mount, tripod, tube rings or dovetail. You can use any Vixen mount with Vixen R130S telescope, but especially recommended for the beginner is the Vixen Great Polaris Economy Equatorial Mount with AL-150 Tripod. For tube rings, order Vixen Tube Rings (pair) 155mm. For a dovetail, order Vixen GP-Dovetail Tube Plate AM-AD-3809.
