Questions about this item:

Ron H  With interest in buying the StarNavigator 130(ending with "S"), the on-line instruction manual specifications state that the tube length is 18" and the focal length is 1000mm. My knowledge would say that this is physically impossible and the the most the focal length could be is about 500mm. How can Meade put 1000mm (~39") into an 18" tube?? By comparison the instruction manual specs for the StarNavigator 130 (without the "S") specify a 38" (965mm) tube, which is doaable and makes sense to me. So... based on percieved magnification, do you think that you have a 1000mm fL or a 500mm? Thanks, Ron - Mount Airy, MD
Andrew R  I'm not sure I understand your question. Meade's own description of this model number: "The StarNavigator 130mm reflecting telescope features a lens diameter of 130mm (5.1") for clear, bright images and a focal length of 1000mm; focal ratio f/7.7" We do not appear to offer an "S" model of this telescope.
Robert S  I believe they achieve the 1000mm through the design of a MatsukovCassegrain type tube.
Shane W  I am a newbie to telescopes. I am looking for a computerised / GOTO, entry level scope for myself (and the kids - hence the GOTO function). The two I am comparing are the MEADE STAR NAVIGATOR 130mm REFLECTOR vs CELESTRON NEXSTAR 130SLT. Any simple, plain english feedback on either of these scopes and/or a comparison between them would be much appreciated? Cheers Shane
CANDY C  I wish I could help but the Celestron was the very first telescope I ever bought. I know nothing about telescopes! What I was super frustrated with is that the user's manual that came with my telescope was a generic one, not for my EXACT model. Being a newbie, some things were very hard to figure out. When I finally took it out to a field to program it, the settings disappeared the very next time I turned it on to use it. I live in a city, so I've not had the opportunity in over a year to take it out again to try and program the settings. I would say this is not a good telescope for a beginner. It's also very bulky to carry around. I'm terrified of breaking it every time I take it outside due to the size. Hope this helps some! Candy
