Vixen R130Sf Newtonian 130mm (5.1 inch) OTA Telescope with Finderscope 2604 Telescopes

The Vixen R130Sf Newtonian 130mm (5.1 inch) OTA Telescope with Finderscope 2604 is a lightweight, portable 5" Newtonian Reflector Telescope, and is ideal for the new astronomer. This R130Sf 5 inch Reflector Telescope by Vixen is a favorite of many new astronomers because it features remarkable light gathering with sharp images for its price and size. With a standard 20mm Pl?ssl, more than the entire moon fills the eyepiece. You'll view innumerable star clusters and dark clouds, not to mention nebulas and galaxies. Add a 32mm eyepiece and the heavens open up with a remarkable 2.5 degree field of view. All of the stars in the Pleiades can be viewed at the same time. With this Vixen Telescope, the visual observer will enjoy wide views of deep sky objects, groups of nebula and clusters. The Vixen R130Sf OTA Telescope 2604 comes standard with the 6 x 30 finderscope and dovetail tube plate that fits very well on all the Vixen Mounts.

Note: The Vixen R130Sf Newtonian 130mm (5.1 inch) OTA Telescope with Finderscope 2604 does not come with a Telescope Mount or Tripod. This is a scope you can start with on a basic user-friendly Vixen Porta Mount and later move up to an electronic mount such as the Vixen Skypod Mount or Vixen Sphinx Mount.

Great telescope and it is very clear. As for a scope that is for beginners, intermediate and advance you can customize it to fit every level. The imaging is above normal and comparable to category four telescopes. I really enjoy the quality of this scope.

Wanted a wide field scope that would work on my celestron nexstar 6/8 SE mount for easy grab and go. Works Very nice for that. Scope arrived packed well and box inside a box. Eyepieces are quite usable although they have a slight rough finish that I feel will be abrasive on eyeglasses. Over all I'm pleased with views through it and even photos I've taken with it. Focuser is weak link but works ok
