This is my first telescope purchase and so as a beginner I didn't want to blow too much money. This was a good price point and gave scope for future improvement. I appreciate the flexibility. The mount can be used in two different modes, one bolt releases the scope from the mount and two bolts loosen the barrel to easily move the eyepiece to a different position. All in all I'm really pleased with it.
Built like a tank and so smooth as well.

What a great telescope The Sky-Watcher 130P is and what a great seller FLO is. It feels so solid but goes toether very smoothly indeed. I have not used the telescope yet but I have no doubt it will perform with outstanding clarity. Big thanks to FLO for getting it to me during these troubled times. Happy New Year from Chris.

The Telescope arrived quickly and without any issues, which is excellent considering these difficult time with lockdown! I purchased this one on the recommendation of FLO and used the Telescope for the first time last night . We are both very impressed with it, so much better than we had hoped. Now to find a few more planets and stars!!!
