TS-Optics Starscope1306 - 130/650 mm beginner telescope with equatorial mount
Observing fun and joy of amateur astronomy - this is offered by this system with easy operation.
Optical quality, mechanical craftmanship and included equipment are above the normal standards.Astronomical observing with the Starscope 1306
130 mm aperture gather enough light to show you hundreds of galaxies, star clusters and nebulae. The Ring Nebula in Lyra can be seen as smoke ring and M13, the famous Hercules star cluster, is already resolved in single stars.
A further advantage is the short focal length of this system. With the supplied 25 mm Plössl eyepiece, a true field of 2° can be seen. This is 4x the diameter of the full moon! So observing large objects is a delight.
The well-crafted Newtonian system also allows observing the moon and the planets with high contrast. No correction lenses degrade its optical performance.
In order to deliver this performance, the optics must be adjusted if necessary. With some beginner´s telescopes, this is not or only partially possible. At the Starscope1306, primary and secondary mirror are adjustable!
