Sky-Watcher 130/1000 Reflector Telescope
The technical details behind this telescope
The Sky-Watcher 130/1000 Reflector Telescope is a great instrument for aspiring young astronomers. It has the benefits of gathering 193% more light than a 76mm telescope and 90% more than a 114mm reflector showing better the main details in nebulae and cluster. With a maximum practical magnification of 260x, this Sky-Watcher Telescope will reveal details in Saturn’s rings, Jupiter’s bands, the Martian polar ice caps, and the phases of Venus and the Moon.
Great Imaging Performance
The Sky-Watcher guarantee diffraction-limited optics for excellent quality. The aluminized primary mirror is aspheric (parabolic profile) delivering an optical system free from spherical aberration. The secondary mirror is thin to allow fast cooling and it is held by extra thin spider supports for minimal diffraction spike effects on bright stars and increased contrast.
The Equatorial Mount
Aligning an equatorial mount is an easy operation that can be completed in a few minutes. Once the tripod is leveled and the mount is orientated south, incline the mount at the same angle of your local latitude. The EQ2 is a lightweight equatorial mount, able to compensate for Earth’s rotation by moving along only one axis. That is a great advantage for high-resolution observation as it is only necessary to turn a single knob whilst tracking an object across the sky. The optional tracking motor can be easily attached to the right ascension axis, allowing comfortable observation without the work of manual tracking.
