Ideally suited for beginner and intermediate astronomers, the Bresser Messier NT130 5" f/5 Newtonian Reflector is designed for lunar and planetary observation. The manual equatorial mount enables observers to accurately find just about any celestial object once it is properly aligned with the Pole Star, and when your subject is in your field of view it can be tracked across the Right Ascension axis with the slow-motion cable to reduce vibrations caused by handling the mount bare-handed.
A steel tripod provides a stable platform for the OTA and mount and is equipped with a tray for accessories and spiked feet to give it a secure footing. The 1.25" rack-and-pinion focuser accepts widely-available eyepieces and accessories for expanding the scope's usability. To get new users started, the Messier comes with 10mm and 25mm eyepieces and a 3x Barlow lens that triples the magnification of each eyepiece to give them magnifications from 25x to 195x.
