    Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ MD Reflector Telescope w/ Motor Drive

    If you're looking for a dual-purpose telescope appropriate for both terrestrial and celestial viewing, then the Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ MD Reflector Telescope w/ Motor Drive is for you. The AstroMaster 130 EQ, like all telescopes in the AstroMaster series, is capable of giving correct views of land and sky. It has a 650mm focal length and produces bright, clear images of the Moon and planets. It's easy to see the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn with this fine instrument. Because of its larger aperture and light gathering ability, this Newtonian reflector telescope can also provide views of the brighter deep space objects like galaxies and nebulae.

    The AstroMaster 130EQ is equipped with a permanently mounted StarPointer Finderscope that lets you keep track of the stars, and a German Equatorial Mount with Setting Circles helps you accurately locate and track sky objects. It features all glass optical elements, as well as smooth operating steel tripod mountings with manual motion controls. Coated optics offer enhanced image brightness and clarity.
