The Heritage 130P from Skywatcher is a mirror telescope that combines several advantages:
On the one hand, its 130mm aperture and 650mm focal length allow for beautiful moon and planet observations (such as cloud bands at Jupiter and the ring division (Saturn)), and deep-sky observations such as clusters, galaxies, twin stars and nebulae already detailed. Skywatcher Heritage-130P FlexTube 130/650 Newton Dobson Telescope with accessories
On the other hand, it is a lightweight and transportable telescope due to its sliding tube. Through the merging you can also come with a binocular approach (an accessory with which one can observe with both eyes - also called Bino) in the focus. The telescope is 37cm long and can be used as a hand luggage on air travel or in a backpack on hikes. The rocker box is simply disassembled, the tube is clamped off the prism rail.
Telescope and rocker box can also be combined with other mountings or telescopes. (E.g., a short refractor on the rocker box, a telescope with GP clamp on a tripod mount)
In addition, the Dobson design makes it easy and intuitive to use. The construction is uncomplicated and can be accomplished in a few minutes.
All of this makes it a valuable beginner & advanced telescope, as well as a popular travel companion (for example, in the mountains or in unclear weather forecasts).
The cooling of the mirror (adaptation of the expansion to the ambient temperature) is quick. The focus (focusing) is performed by turning the helical extension. The eyepiece pull has some play in the thread, but still works flawlessly.
+ Ideal for beginners, advanced and as travel companions + Suitable for detailed moon and planet observation and for more powerful deep-sky objects + Good optics through the parabolic main mirror + Easy and intuitive in design and operation thanks to the Dobson design + Collapsed tube only 37 cm long + LED illuminated spotlight facilitates the observation of sky objects + The Rockerbox is low-vibration and stable + Good value for money
- In the case of lunar observation, we recommend a lunar filter to protect the eyes and eyes For better contrast. - For planetary observation, we recommend a barlow lens for more detail. - Not adjustable in height, since no tripod construction. The telescope must be placed on the table or a support. - The primer rail may have a stain during use and after shipment. This is due to the design and does not impose any restrictions on function or image.

All Newton telescopes should be adjusted before the first use and then regularly, To obtain a sharp image. We therefore adjust all our Newton before they leave our house.
