Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ-MD Telescope with Motor Drive

The Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ-MD Telescope with Motor Drive is part of a high-quality and economical telescope series with superb optical systems. These telescopes produce breathtaking views of the Moon, planets, and hundreds of deep-sky objects!

You can observe activity on the Sun by adding an optional solar filter. While observing, you'll notice that as the Earth rotates on its axis, stationary stars appear to move across the sky. This causes the object you're viewing to drift out of the field view. Telescopes on their mounts can be aimed at celestial objects, and guided with the slow-motion controls to track your targets!

The Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ MD comes complete with a pre-assembled mount and tripod. The Celestron CG-3 equatorial mount is stable, with setting circles and slow-motion controls on both axes for easy, smooth tracking and now a clock drive which continually tracks objects in right ascension. Strict adherence to Celestron's tough quality standards for; manufacturing, assembly, and testing ensures that each telescope not only performs well but remains durable after years and years of use.
