From the SkyProdigy, a telescope so smart it can align itself, to our high-performance EdgeHD optical system, we’ve revolutionized the hobby of astronomy for beginners and advanced amateurs alike. One of the most important factors in a telescope is its transmission—the percentage of light that reaches the focal plane. Although they’re prone to the occasional jerky motion if it misses a gear, the controls are relatively smooth. Astrophotography is permitted as well, but feel free to check out /r/astrophotography for more of that. The CG-3 has a Vixen dovetail saddle so in theory you could put a different optical tube on it, but it wouldn’t really make financial sense to do so under most circumstances.Avid amateur astronomers themselves, they've tested products in the field and can provide personalized recommendations. Additionally, with a maximum magnification potential of 307x, the AstroMaster 130EQ can gather light approximately 345 times more effectively than the naked eye. Motor Drive -Turn your manual German equatorial mount into a tracking mount by adding the included RA motor drive to your telescope.

Slow-motion control cables facilitate easy tracking, even with gloves, minimizing vibrations caused by manual adjustments. In the past, the Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ telescope featured a permanently mounted star finder, which received considerable feedback from users regarding its challenging usability and ineffectiveness in locating celestial objects. From the moon’s features to the rings of Saturn and Jupiter’s bands, you’ll enjoy impressive planetary views when using the Plössl eyepiece. The tube attaches to its mount with a pair of felt-lined metal tube rings and a short Vixen-style dovetail, which allows the scope to be balanced and the eyepiece rotated to a comfortable position, as well as for the scope to be installed on a different mount. I have no complaints about the scope though, not for the money it costs, I'm just not convinced about the usefulness of the motor.

The Celestron Astromaster 130 EQ, with its user-friendly design and powerful optics, offers a great balance between affordability and performance. ED stands for "extra-low dispersion," which refers to the composition and optical properties of the glass used for the lenses. Screw in the balance weight slide bar and fit on the two 5 kg weights, ensuring they are securely locked on with their finger tightened grub screws. While the Celestron AstroMaster 130mm isn’t without its flaws, it’s still a capable scope that’s sure to delight beginners and experienced stargazers alike. From their high-end CGX series to their entry-level PowerSeeker series, Celestron delivers astronomers of all skill levels the best in the industry.
