The 130mm optics The 130mm parabolic mirror of this instrument is superb and is (when used with the appropriate accessories) capable, in ideal seeing conditions, of delivering magnifications up to 265x and 275x without break down. An amazing achievement for a telescope in this price bracket. The parabolic figure on the mirror The 650mm focal length allows medium to high power magnifications to be achieved easily without employing uncomfortably short focal length eyepieces. The 130mm aperture (that’s over 5” in old money) makes this telescope and all-round performer giving high resolution images of the Moon, planets and other solar system targets as well as penetrating deep-sky views of galaxies and nebulae.
