Vixen R130Sf Newtonian 130mm (5.1 inch) OTA Telescope with Finderscope 2604 Telescopes Product Info

The Vixen R130Sf Newtonian 130mm (5.1 inch) OTA Telescope with Finderscope 2604 is a lightweight, portable 5" Newtonian Reflector Telescope, and is ideal for the new astronomer. This R130Sf 5 inch Reflector Telescope by Vixen is a favorite of many imagenew astronomers because it features remarkable light gathering with sharp images for its price and size. With a standard 20mm Pl?ssl, more than the entire moon fills the eyepiece. You'll view innumerable star clusters and dark clouds, not to mention nebulas and galaxies. Add a 32mm eyepiece and the heavens open up with a remarkable 2.5 degree field of view. All of the stars in the Pleiades can be viewed at the same time. With this Vixen Telescope, the visual observer will enjoy wide views of deep sky objects, groups of nebula and clusters. The Vixen R130Sf OTA Telescope 2604 comes standard with the 6 x 30 finderscope and dovetail tube plate that fits very well on all the Vixen Mounts.

Note: The Vixen R130Sf Newtonian 130mm (5.1 inch) OTA Telescope with Finderscope 2604 does not come with a Telescope Mount or Tripod. This is a scope you can start with on a basic user-friendly Vixen Porta Mount and later move up to an electronic mount such as the Vixen Skypod Mount or Vixen Sphinx Mount.
