More about the product

The SkyWatcher Explorer 130PS's 130mm mirror can be used not only for lunar and planetary observations but can show many deep sky objects as well under excellent conditions. While the main mirror in most of the smaller telescopes is spheroid this 130/650 model has a paraboloid main mirror making it usable even for higher magnifications. The f/5 focal ratio results in a short tube, so the telescope is easy to carry and handle. While the 650mm focal length might seem short, the good quality optics make it possible to use higher magnifications using a Barlow lens. A 10mm and 25mm Barium eyepieces included (26x and 65x magnification) but the magnification range can be extended up to 260x. The 34.5mm secondary mirror causes 26% central obstructions only.

The NEW NEQ2 mount has dovetail system, so putting the telescope on and off is very easy and fast. The steel tripod is more robust than the older aluminium one, so the mount stability has been increased.  A clock drive can also be mounted to the mount, two different versions are available separately. The eyepiece holder between the tripod legs is very practical.

Pros

Hát… a hold elég jó

Cons

A holdon kívül szerintem semmire nem használható! Nekem óriási csalódás volt a (gagyi Scopium Nature 15x70) binokulár után! Élesség nincs, fényerő nincs, a mechanika nehéz, de ehhez nem elég! Minden apró mozdulatra, szellőre beremeg.

Summary

Csalódás! Inkább egy fluid állvány egy 15x70 vagy 20x80 binokulárral a drágábikkból (100e), vagy talán 250 átmérő fölött…

Pros

Kiváló optikai minőség, tetszetős külső.

Cons

Egy picit remegős a kép

Summary

Tegnap csomagoltam ki. Szerencsémre csillagos volt az ég. Városi ég alól tudtam csak tesztelni, de így is gyönyörű képe van. Kicsit remegős fókuszáláskor, de elég hamar megnyugszik. Hozta a várt eredményt, sőt, túl is teljesítette azt.
