The all new Sky Watcher Explorer 130P is an excellent starter telescope which is made easy to use because of the Auto Tracking system which is operated from the handset.
The new SupaTrak™ Auto-Tracking Alt-Azimuth Mount is a heavier-duty version of the standard Auto-Tracking mount, designed to carry heavier OTA’s. This mounting, with its built-in dual-axis multi-speed Servo motors is ideal for both Astronomical & Terrestrial use. In Astronomical mode, after following the simple set-up procedure, the mount is capable of tracking astronomical objects automatically. The fully motorised mount is convenient, practical, lightweight and easy to set-up and is ideal for both beginners and experienced users alike.
The Explorer-130P OTA has already been heaped with much praise and accolade by the media and astronomy press for its excellent Parabolic optics. It is highly recommended for the beginner or experienced observer wanting excellent results, from a telescope of decent aperture and of manageable proportions. Whether your interest is Deep-Sky, the Moon and Planets, or a combination of both, the Explorer-130P offers excellent all-round diffraction-limited performance.
