The SpaceProbe 130ST EQ is a rich-field Newtonian reflector with a tube only 24″ long compared to the 33″ tube length of the standard 130 EQ. The focal length of the ST’s 130mm (5.1″) primary mirror is 650mm (f/5), producing a wider field of view and brighter images for a given eyepiece focal length. The diffraction-limited parabolic primary mirror is the same type used on much larger reflectors costing substantially more. On a short-focal-length design like this one, a parabolic mirror is a must for delivering sharp, detailed images. This scope package includes an EQ-2 equatorial mount with dual setting circles and manual slow-motion controls, adjustable aluminum tripod with accessory tray, two Plossl eyepieces (25mm and 10mm), and a 6×30 achromatic finder scope. One-year limited warranty.
