SkyWatcher 130/1000 EQ2 Reflector Telescope with Motor DriveThe SkyWatcher 130/1000 EQ2 Reflector Telescope is a powerful reflector that packs a punch. With its 130mm Newtonian design and 1000mm focal length, this telescope provides both a compact design with strong optic performance. The portable size means that the SkyWatcher 130/1000 EQ2 Reflector Telescope is easy to transport to your favourite viewing locations.
Larger than the 114mm model, the SW135 gives you more light capturing capabilities which translates to greater detail for your night sky viewing. Convenience is well accounted for with the standard aluminium tripod with accessory tray for storing eyepieces and other tools. Your viewing experience is also greatly enhanced with the Equatorial mount that makes star tracking easy.
An extra feature on the SkyWatcher 130/1000 EQ2 Reflector Telescope is the motor drive function. This standard accessory allows users greater control of the tube to track objects you are viewing. The greater accuracy afforded by using a motor drive as opposed to using your hands makes the SW135 an even more attractive Scope.

- Heavy but good quality
- Ok but not suitable
Packaging was not great. Have received similar products far better packaged.
I found the telescope much heavier than I expected, I did ask that it be suitable to move from my home on to the deck outside each time I wanted to use it. When fully assembled I was hardly able to move it and as a consequence I have hurt my back.
After speaking to your representative and her understanding of my problem I returned the telescope for a refund.
I appreciate your service follow up and hope my back improves as quickly as possible.
Thanks. Basil Mitchell
