The Meade 130 StarNavigator NG, or Next Generation Reflector Telescope is ready to go when you are!
- Highly portable
- Ideal for apt or condo dwellers
- Padded Carrying case (included) protects your investment

This special Travel Pack even comes with a carry case ($59 VALUE if purchased separately) , and because the telescope can run off of household batteries (eight (8) AA, user supplied), you can pack it up and take it camping, to a dark-sky site, or into your own backyard.
The extremely portable 130mm (5.1") Newtonian reflector tube assembly has enough aperture to see bright deep-sky objects, like the Orion Nebula, Andromeda Galaxy, or the Hercules Star Cluster, as well as solar system objects such as Saturn, Jupiter, or the Red Planet, Mars. The OTA connects to the single arm of the StarNavigator NG mount with a Vixen-style dovetail, and comes complete with a Red Dot Finder and two full-sized 1.25" eyepieces.
The Meade 130mm StarNavigator NG Newtonian Telescope includes an easy to operate, lightweight, and portable robotic mount with the tried-and-true Meade AudioStar computerized hand controller. The super-smart AudioStar is the brains of the telescope, and it knows the night sky right out of the box.
Turn it on, and after a brief alignment procedure, your telescope is ready to take you on a guided tour of the night skies best objects. With AudioStar's 30,000 object database and over 4 hours of audio presentations built into the electronics, you can learn about the objects you’re viewing. It’s like having a professional astronomer with you at the telescope!
The Meade 130 StarNavigator NG includes a light-weight aluminum frame, advanced electronics, internal clock, external power connector, and a full height adjustable aluminum tripod allowing comfortable viewing from either a seated or standing position. Powered by 8 AA batteries (user-supplied) or external power you will see more objects in a single night than Galileo saw in his lifetime.
