Save £24, RRP £209. Sky-Watcher Explorer-130P (EQ2) 130mm (5.1") f/650 Parabolic Newtonian Reflector Telescope. The EXPLORER-130P models feature premium-quality Parabolic Primary Mirrors, normally found in larger more expensive telescopes, to eliminate spherical aberrations, producing even sharper, higher-contrast images which are full of detail. A parabolic or more accurately a "paraboloidal" mirror, is ground to a shape which brings all incoming light rays to a perfect focus, on axis. In addition they feature 0.5mm Ultra-Thin secondary mirror supports, to reduce diffraction spikes and light loss. More
The EQ2 Equatorial Mount is suited to both beginners and experienced astronomers. It offers very good stability and the tall, fully adjustable aluminium tripod with large accessory tray is a real plus. This mount features 360º slow-motion tracking gears on both the right ascension and declination axes with flexible controls. Dual metal setting circles allow location of objects by their R.A. and DEC. coordinates. A separate latitude adjustment aids in polar alignment.
An optional D.C. Motor Drive can be installed to the R.A. axis for auto-tracking purposes.

Comments about Sky-Watcher Explorer-130P (EQ2) Parabolic Newtonian Reflector Telescope:
I purchased the Skywatcher 130p as my first telescope. [...] easy to follow instructions, all up and ready to go within 30 minutes.My first nights viewing was breathtaking. Wonderfull views not just of the Moon but of the shadows cast by the creaters on the Moon. Then onto Jupiter,Dont expect to see too much of Jupiter with this size scope, you can clearly see the planet with its browny bands and its four moons. really is amazzzzing to see something so far away.In the box you get 2 eyepieces,10mm and 25mm. I added a 2x barlow and a moon filter to my order. You will need the filter as the moon is so bright.If like me this is your first scope, you will not be dissapointed in the quailty and what you can see. I would suggest you purchase a planesphere to help with finding your way around, coloured lense would be a good purchase.Great telescope, good price,[...]
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
