The Celestron Astromaster 130EQ seems pretty good for a beginner like me, but I'm trying to figure out if I want the version with or without the motor. I have now had plenty of nights seeing the moon up close as it passed through its phases and showed off its creator pitted face. Unlike traditional telescopes, the RASA design ingeniously places the imaging sensor at the front of the telescope tube, creating an ultra-fast f/2.

This thoughtful design consideration ensures that users have access to a variety of eyepieces to enhance their astronomical exploration. This is perfect for tracking stars as they appear to move across the sky, but you will need to polar align it first. Get ready for a night of astroimaging with your mount faster than previously thought possible with All-Star Polar Alignment. Ideal for astrophotography and imaging, this telescope boasts a rapid focal ratio, a 650mm focal length, and an oversized parabolic mirror, ensuring breathtakingly detailed views of the Moon, crisp planetary observations, and the ability to unravel the mysteries of distant nebulae and galaxies. This award-winning optical system reduces visual defects like field curvature and coma, creating an ultra-flat field for pinpoint stars all the way to the edge of today’s largest imaging sensors.If you're looking for a dual-purpose telescope appropriate for both terrestrial and celestial viewing, then the Astromaster Series is for you.

I can't wait to see the Orion nebula through it I hope you have many of good nights with your telescope. This software is particularly helpful for those looking to deepen their understanding of astronomy and for aiding in the identification and location of celestial objects in the night sky. The DSLR/T-adapter/Barlow combination is quite long, and sticks out like a broom handle from the focuser.Even if you are unfortunate enough to get a sample with mediocre to poor optics, the Celestron AstroMaster 130 can show you a lot of deep sky objects, provided you obtain a better low-power eyepiece than the one included with the telescope. Sturdy Tripod with Accessories Tray: The adjustable-height aluminum tripod provides a stable foundation for your astronomical adventures. In practical terms, an image viewed through an F/5 telescope will be four times brighter than that seen through an F/10 telescope. Accessories are available to help you get more from your scope and let it grow as you do, and I hope to try out a few from the AstroMaster range, for example the addition of a camera mount enables the fitting of a DSLR or compact camera or even a purpose built, Wi-Fi transiting camera the Celestron NexImage solar system imager. Some users have complained that it’s difficult to polar align this mount, but we didn’t find that to be the case when evaluating the mount.

The product page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable. I’m still learning so for me, It is not a pinpoint accurate track as you would get with the computer aided trackers, I don't think I'll be taking any photo sequences to stack with this rig, but it does enable you to concentrate on your chosen object without having to perform repeated alterations to your orientation quite as often. Take photos of the Moon and planets with your smartphone with this useful and easy to use accessory.The 20 mm eyepiece has a built-in erect image corrector, this means that the image you view is corrected to the right way up, making this eyepiece and telescope useful for terrestrial viewing as well as astronomy. The skywatcher I suggested has a parabolic mirror in astronomy terms the parabolic mirror is better, it gives a clearer, cleaner image that is easier to focus and takes magnification better it is also a lot more expensive to make. A 15mm “redline” or “goldline” eyepiece (43x) fits well between the 32mm and the provided 10mm eyepieces, while a 7mm planetary eyepiece (93x) provides about the highest magnification you can use with the AstroMaster 130EQ before the flawed spherical mirrors no longer provide a sharp or even acceptable image.

TRACKING: Manual German equatorial mount with setting circles to accurately locate and track sky objects. For observers looking to maximize their experience with this telescope, it’s recommended to focus on distant and expansive celestial subjects.Five inches of aperture is a great beginner scope, letting in plenty of light to reveal the night sky’s brightest deep sky objects (DSOs) such as Andromeda Galaxy, the Pleiades, the Orion Nebula, and the Great Hercules Cluster. Spherical mirrors are more affordable, but they do suffer from chromatic aberration, especially in larger telescopes. Celestron has been a leading manufacturer of professional quality telescopes for well over 50 years. Now, Celestron is using that same technology to allow star gazers to connect to the night sky and enhance their experience of the cosmos in fun and unique ways. The Celestron AstroMaster 130 EQ, while equipped with slow-motion adjustment knobs for right ascension and declination, can present challenges in keeping celestial objects in view due to the Earth’s rotation.
