About Orion 130 Reflector

The Orion SpaceProbe 130mm EQ Reflector Telescope provides great all-around viewing performance, sporting the classic long-tube Newtonian design. One minute you can be studying lunar crater formations at high power; the next, the ethereal glow of a nebular star factory. A few minutes later, the ringed visage of Saturn. All served in crisp detail by way of the SpaceProbe's light-gathering 130mm (5.1") primary mirror of 900mm focal length (f/6.9).

The mirror lies at the base of the rolled-steel optical tube, which is outfitted with a smooth rack-and-pinion focuser. It accepts 1.25" eyepieces, including the two fully coated Explorer II eyepieces that come standard with the SpaceProbe 130mm: a 25mm for low-power viewing at 36x and a 10mm for higher-power looks at 90x. Also standard is a 6x30 achromatic finder scope to help home in on celestial targets. The mount is the sturdy EQ-2 equatorial model, with adjustable aluminum legs and accessory tray. Slow-motion controls allow fine manual pointing of the telescope and easy star tracking. Addition of an optional EQ-2M AstroTrack electronic drive enables the telescope to track objects automatically.
