Celestron Astromaster 130EQ-MD Motor Drive Telescope

If you're looking for a dual-purpose telescope appropriate for both terrestrial and celestial viewing, then the AstroMaster Series is for you. Each AstroMaster model is capable of giving correct views of land and sky. 

This Celestron Newtonian Reflector Astromaster 130EQ-MD Motor Drive Telescope has an aperture of 130 mm (5.12") and a focal length of 650 mm or 26" for a focal ratio of f/5. With the 2 included eyepieces, you can get a view of the heavens with two magnifications, 33 x or 65 x. The telescope includes a built in red dot starpointer finder. The CG-3 equatorial mount allows you to easily track celestial objects, once you have aligned the mount's equatorial axis to the celestial pole.

The AstroMaster Series produce bright, clear images of the Moon and planets. It is easy to see the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn with every one of these fine instruments. For views of the brighter deep space objects like galaxies and nebulae, we recommend the larger aperture and light gathering ability of the Newtonian reflectors.

This model includes the motor drive for automatic tracking.
