Designed for the intermediate-level user, the Polaris 130mm f/5.0 Equatorial Reflector Telescope from Meade is designed to take astronomy to the next level by providing a complete set up for viewing the planets and deep-sky objects like galaxies, star clusters, and nebulae. Three eyepieces provide 25x, 72.2x, and 103x magnifications with a 2x Barlow lens that doubles the magnification of each eyepiece for a wider-range of observing possibilities.

Its manual German equatorial mount has precise Right Ascension (RA) and Declination indicators to find your subjects and dual slow-motion cables for tracking. As a more advanced mount, it allows users to find just about any celestial object by just knowing its coordinates. After the mount has been properly Polar Aligned, and the subject found, it can be easily tracked by making slight adjustments to the RA dial. The included AutoStar Suite Astronomer Software provides a useful tool for planning observing sessions. It can show more than 10,000 celestial objects including planets, stars, galaxies and nebulae, and star charts can be printed for use in the field.

An adjustable-height stainless steel tripod provides a stable platform for sky-watching, and the included red-dot finder makes polar-alignment faster and is an essential tool for quick and easy observation sessions for easy to identify subjects such as the Moon, planets, and constellations.
