Designed to commemorate the International Year of Astronomy, the Sky-Watcher Heritage 130mm f/5 Tabletop Reflector Telescope is the ideal combination of power and portability for general all-around astronomy.
telescope is built using a truss tube system that allows the optical
tube assembly (OTA) to be closed to about half its length during
transport and storage, with the ability to be opened quickly and easily
without having to collimate the mirrors so you can observing quickly.
Optically, the Heritage is outfitted with a large 130mm aperture and
aluminized paraboloidal mirrors that draw in the light required to make
detailed observations of the moon and planets, with the ability to reach
outside our solar system to see bright deep-sky objects.
optical tube is supported by a manual alt-azimuth tabletop mounting
system. This mount allows you to set up the scope just about
anywhere—from a patio or picnic table to a tailgate or car hood. Rubber
feet not only provide a sure footing but offer natural vibration
suppression so views remain clear and steady even when people are
walking past or there is heavy vehicular traffic. When you need to pack
up and go home, simply collapse the tube, rotate it down to minimize the
form factor, and grab the mount's integrated handle so you can carry it
safely and securely. To get you observing right out of the box,
Sky-Watcher includes two eyepieces and a red dot finder.
