Vixen R130Sf 130mm (5.1 inch) Telescope with SkyPod Mount, GOTO computer 25004 Telescopes Product Info

The Vixen R130Sf 130mm (5.1 inch) Telescope with SkyPod Mount, GOTO computer 25004 is a lightweight, portable 5" Newtonian Reflector Telescope, with an automatic GOTO controller. This R 130Sf 5 inch Reflector Telescope by Vixen is a favorite of many new astronomers because imageit features remarkable light gathering with sharp images for its price and size. With a standard 20mm Plossl, more than the entire moon fills the eyepiece. You’ll view innumerable star clusters and dark clouds, not to mention nebulas and galaxies. With this Vixen Telescope, the visual observer will enjoy wide views of deep sky objects, groups of nebula and clusters. The Vixen R130 Sf 130mm (5.1 in) Reflector Telescope also features the Skypod Mount. This Sky-Pod Mount is a unique portable alt-azimuth computer controlled "Go To" mount that evolved from the very successful Vixen Sphinx mount. The Sky Pod incorporates a compact computer controlled Alt-Az system that automatically slews the telescope from one object to another. The 22,000 plus object database provides an endless variety of object to view and is upgradable. This new and portable GoTo travel mount uses the modified Starbook S hand controller that offers the same practical user concept of the Sphinx controller. A display shows you a map of the sky so that you always know where you are. The controller is integrated into the mount. You can take it off for remote control, but you can always put it back for safe storage and transport. This means that for transport you can avoid all the separate small parts that are otherwise easily lost. These features of the Vixen R130Sf 130mm Telescope 25004 make it the ideal telescope for the new astronomer.
