See the giant planets such as Jupiter and Saturn and their moons, nebulae and clusters. The Sky-Watcher 130/1000 EQ2 Reflector Telescope is a fantastic telescope for the beginning amateur astronomer. It has the benefits of gathering 193% more light than a 76mm telescope and 90% more than a 114mm reflector showing better the main details in nebulae and cluster. With maximum practical magnification of 260x , this Sky-Watcher Telescope will reveal details in Saturn’s rings, Jupiter’s bands, the Martian polar ice caps, and the phases of Venus and the moon.

Equatorial Mount Features

The EQ2 is a lightweight equatorial mount, able to compensate for Earth’s rotation by moving along only one axis. That is a great advantage for high resolution observation as it is only necessary to turn a single knob whilst tracking an object across the sky. The optional tracking motor can be easily attached to the right ascension axis, allowing comfortable observation without the work of manual tracking.

Aligning an equatorial mount is an easy operation that can be completed in a few minutes. Once the tripod is levelled and the mount is orientated south, incline the mount at the same angle of your local latitude. For example, if you are in Sydney (latitude 33° South), adjust the mount inclination to 33° above the horizon using the scale on the EQ2 mount.

Premium Imaging Performance

Sky-Watcher guarantee diffraction limited optics for an outstanding quality. The aluminised primary mirror is aspheric (parabolic profile) offering an optical system free from spherical aberration. The secondary mirror is thin to allow fast cooling and it is held by extra thin spider supports for minimal diffraction spike effects on bright stars and increased contrast.
