Skywatcher Explorer 130P Reflector Telescope

The Skywatcher Explorer 130P Reflector Telescope is a fantastic choice for any beginner. With a very useful 130mm parabolic mirror, it has great light gathering power, and is a very capable all-rounder, giving great views of the Moon as well as reaching those fainter deep sky targets. Supplied on the EQ-2 Mount, when its is polar aligned correctly allows very easy tracking of night sky objects with its slow motion controls. This Skywatchr 130P Reflector Telescope also features thin 0.5mm secondary mirror supoorts, to reduce light loss and diffraction spikes.

Sky-Watcher Explorer-130PM has received a commendation


"I was most impressed by the views revealed by the ‘scope during tests…Despite a phase of nearly 96 percent, the waxing gibbous Moon revealed a seemingly inexhaustible amount of fine detail... Highly recommended!"

SKY-WATCHER DELUXE MIRROR COATINGS
Most reflectors today usually have a coat of aluminium as the mirror surface and then an overcoat of silicon monoxide or silicon dioxide to protect it. Silicon dioxide produces a much more durable coat than silicon monoxide but requires specialized equipment to apply it and is therefore more expensive. Protection is needed, because in most reflectors, the mirror is open to the elements and deterioration of the reflective layer reduces the resolution of the telescope. ALL Sky-Watcher reflectors, including this Skywatcher Explorer 130P Reflector Telescope are Multi-Coated with Silicon Dioxide as standard for Optimum Durability and Long Term Performance.
