About this deal

In the past, the Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ telescope featured a permanently mounted star finder, which received considerable feedback from users regarding its challenging usability and ineffectiveness in locating celestial objects. These mirrors cannot focus light correctly (a proper Newtonian telescope uses a parabolic mirror), and they make the telescope nearly unusable at high magnifications. If the item comes direct from a manufacturer, it may be delivered in non-retail packaging, such as a plain or unprinted box or plastic bag. This useful accessory will allow you to double the magnification of the eyepieces used with the telescope resulting in a more magnified view.

Sturdy Tripod with Accessories Tray: The adjustable-height aluminum tripod provides a stable foundation for your astronomical adventures.Using the Celestron AstroMaster 130 EQ is a user-friendly experience, particularly suited for beginners. The Celestron 130EQ MD has enabled repeated steady views, it is beautifully made, relatively light weight and easy to transport and quick to set up, Its use is simple with incredible results from its crystal clear optics.

The DSLR/T-adapter/Barlow combination is quite long, and sticks out like a broom handle from the focuser. The Celestron Astromaster 130 EQ is a Newtonian reflector telescope with a 130mm primary mirror, a focal length of 650mm, and a focal ratio of F/5. When you unbox the Celestron Astromaster 130 EQ, you can expect to find several components necessary for setting up and using the telescope.The 10mm Kellner supplied for medium power (65x with the 130EQ) works well, and thanks to its much greater and more reasonable apparent field of view (around 50 degrees) it actually achieves a similar true field to the 20mm Kellner.

It's analog and doesn't have encoders, so you can only control the speed of the motor with a little knob. Conversely, parabolic mirrors, which are free from spherical aberration, are considered superior in terms of image quality. At the forefront of a new era in amateur astronomy, the launch of Celestron Origin stands as a beacon, seamlessly intertwining stargazing and astrophotography into a singular, user-friendly experience.The brighter open star clusters and nebulae such as the Orion, Lagoon, and Swan will look fantastic with half-decent skies. As a reflector, the internal mirrors need to be adjusted on occasion to ensure the mirrors are aligned for optimal viewing. The equatorial mount includes setting circles to help in adjusting the right ascension and declination.
