The Explorer 130P telescope features a premium quality Parabolic Primary Mirror, normally found in larger, more expensive telescopes, to eliminate spherical aberrations, producing sharper, higher-contrast images which are full of detail. A parabolic or more accurately a "paraboloidal" mirror, is ground to a shape which brings all incoming light rays to a perfect focus, on axis. In addition this model features 0.5mm Ultra-Thin secondary mirror supports, to reduce diffraction spikes and light loss. Supplied ready to use with eyepieces, tripod and mount this quality instrument is practical and offers excellent performance."I was most impressed by the views revealed by the 'scope during tests

Great value A very nice telescope for the money. Easy to setup with good, clear instructions and nicely packaged. Build quality is surprisingly good and it's calibrated very well out of the box. Included eye pieces give a good sharp image, although I'd recommend a 2x Barlow to get the most out of the scope.
