About this product
Part Number: 10922
An excellent introduction to astronomy!
"Our first test on the Sky-Watcher Explorer-130 was to check the collimation of the mirrors, which we found were well aligned. This scope has one of the largest mirrors in its price range, which is a great asset because it means it can gather more light...Optically, the quality of the field of view while studying the star Altair was very good using the supplied 25mm eyepiece. The star remained sharp across 80 per cent of the view, with only slight distortion close to the field edges….Taking everything into account, this telescope made observing the night sky enjoyable and relatively hassle free….great views coupled with ease of use."

So far so good, I am new to stargazing and I am quite impressed with this telescope both with the quality and the price I paid.

Was not expecting much from this but boy was I wrong. Looked at jupiter and its moons with very good detail. Excellent value for money and a great starter!
