    Product Description
    SkyWatcher 130/650 AZ3-R Reflector Telescope View the giant planets like Jupiter and Saturn and their moons, nebulae and clusters. The Sky-Watcher 130/650 AZ3-R Reflector Telescope is a fantastic telescope for the amateur astronomer. It comes with the SWAZ5 Alt-Azimuth mount, made with a wide range of adjustment, from zenith to the valley. The telescope has the benefits of gathering 193% more light than a 76mm telescope and 90% more than a 114mm reflector, showing the main details in a nebulae and cluster better. With maximum practical magnification of 260x , this Sky-Watcher Telescope will reveal beautiful details in Saturn’s rings, Jupiter’s bands, the Martian polar ice caps, and the different phases of Venus and the moon. Premium Imaging Performance Sky-Watcher guarantees diffraction limiting optics for an outstanding quality. Its aluminised primary mirror is aspheric (parabolic profile), offering an optical system free from spherical aberration. The secondary mirror is thin to allow fast cooling and it is held by extra thin spider supports for minimal diffraction spike effects on bright stars and increase contrast. SWAZ5 Alt-Azimuth mount features:
  • Built-it micrometric adjustment knobs (short)
  • Ideal for land and nature viewing
  • Wide range of adjustment
  • Alt-Azimuth design
  • 5kg load capacity
