Starter Telescope!

by Anthony N.

I am very impressed with this telescope. This was the first telescope I ever bought. On my first night I was able to see planets like jupiter and objects like the moon. Some people think you will see images right from NASA but realistically speaking you see the objects and some detail, but not like a hubble image.

Astromaster 130 EQ Review

by The Millers

I always have been interested in the stars and this telescope really is worth it. It is a great starter telescope and you can quickly set this thing up and get a look at the items in the sky you cannot see with your eyes alone.

Good Telescope

by Darth Vader Fan

This telescope is just fantastic for the price. Is my first one and as far as I can tell optics is good and functionality is very friendly. The mount, telescope, counterweights, and everything they're made of feels of good quality material.


by Henrik L.

Easy to set up, when looking at the moon, you can see craters realyl good. I needed to get some more eyepieces for magnification, other than that great for beginner in astronomy. I need to get the maps to look at different stars and every thing. really enjoyed this product.
