The Sky Watcher Heritage 130P Tabletop Dobsonian Astronomy Telescope 10213 is an excellent introduction to astronomy that will provide wonderful views of the Moon, planets and the brighter Deep-Sky Objects.
The Heritage 130P Tabletop Dobsonian Astronomy Telescope was specifically chosen to commemorate both the anniversary of Galileo's first telescope and the International Year of Astronomy.
That is why the names of numerous well-known people, including Galileo Galilei, who significantly contributed to advancing astronomy over the past 400 years are inscribed on the telescope tube.
Making it a great way to begin astronomy as a hobby The Sky Watcher Heritage 130P Telescope is not only a high-precision optical tool, the Dobsonian mount makes this a straightforward telescope to operate and has an ultra-compact container. It also makes the perfect present as it comes fully built right out of the presentation box. Dobsonians scopes are usually much larger so this Heritage 130P is considered to be an exception and is, therefore, an optimal travel companion.
The same superb parabolic primary mirror, which is also utilised in the larger Newton model, forms the basis of the optical system. The telescope is a versatile tool that provides a stunning view of the moon, planets, and first deep-sky objects. The unique grid tube design is extremely convenient to store and transport. Flexible positioning of the focal point is possible.
