VIXEN R130Sf Newtonian Telescope

5" (130mm) Newtonian Telescope
This lightweight 5” newtonian telescope is a favorite of many new astronomers because it features remarkable light gathering with sharp images for its price and size. With a standard 20mm Plőssl, more than the entire moon fills the eyepiece. You’ll view innumerable star clusters and dark clouds, not to mention nebulas and galaxies. The visual observer will enjoy wide views of deep sky objects. Actual groups of nebula or clusters can be viewed at the same time with this instrument.

The R130Sf Newtonian Telescope comes standard with the 6 x 30 finder scope, 2 eyepieces and dovetail tube plate that fits on all the Vixen mounts. This is a telescope you can start with on a basic user-friendly Alt AZ Porta II Mount and later move up to one of our electronic mounts such as the Sphinx SX2. Universe Today says "The Vixen R130Sf is absolutely the perfect size for someone who needs enough aperture to light up popular deep sky objects, but doesn't need to lug around a 12" telescope".
