1309 EQMS


130mm aperture, 900mm focal length (f/7). 5.2" aluminised & overcoated mirror, motor drive with clutch, hand control and battery case. 5x24 finderscope, EQ2 German equatorial mount, smooth rack and pinion 1.25" focuser, Super 1.25" eyepieces, 1.5x erecting prism for terrestrial use and aluminium tripod. 130mm primary mirror collects 30% more light than the 114mm, resulting in better resolution and a brighter image. Heavier mount and tripod improves image steadiness. The motor drive is precisely to control the telescope's tracking speed to compensate for the earth's rotation during long exposure of celestial objects. A major problem when trying to view a celestial object at high power is vibration. The target object will only stay in the field of view for a few seconds, which is often longer than it takes for vibration to dampen after you have moved the telescope to follow it. A motor drive helps by keeping the telescope "on target".
