For those who are looking for large aperture and light gathering capability, the answer may lie with the choice of the Celestron AstroMaster 130 newtonian reflector telescope. Its 5.1" diameter is considered excellent for light collection. When you are looking for faint sky objects such as clusters and nebulae, large aperture becomes relevant. A 650mm f/5 aperture is considered really bright in optical terms, and offers a wide field of view. In order to take full advantage of the telescope's short focal length and wide field of view, the user may consider the purchase of a longer eyepiece than the standard 20mm for viewing galaxies. The AstroMaster 130 features coated glass optics, and is capable of producing clear and bright images of the moon and the planets. This unit comes with a German equatorial mount, a quick dovetail attachment, and a rugged, pre-assembled tripod for your convenience.
