New Sky-Watcher Explorer-130PS with AZ-EQ Avant Dual-Mode Alt-Azimuth/Equatorial Mount - Perfect for Grab-and-Go!
With an extremely useful 130mm of light gathering aperture and a superb parabolic primary mirror, the EXPLORER-130PS is a highly capable all-rounder for the observation of the Moon, bright planets, nebulae, galaxies and star clusters.
The well engineered and easy to use AZ-EQ AVANT mounting provides excellent stability and precise control in either Alt-Azimuth or Equatorial configurations, via its smooth slow motion controls located on both axes.
The slow motion control knobs can be conveniently positioned at either end of both the R.A. or DEC axis shafts.
Includes useful red dot finderscope.
NOTE: The 130PS telescope has a non-collimateable primary mirror. Please contact us for more info.
