Konus KonusMotor 130 Reflector Telescope Overview:

 

The Konus KonusMotor 130 Reflector Telescope from Konus is an ideal intermediate scope for making observations of the Moon and planets as well as brighter deep-sky objects. The 5″ primary mirror and anti-reflection multicoated optics ensure images are bright and clear. This German equatorial mount is a step-up from a beginner version with the addition of a Right Ascension tracking motor that counteracts the Earth’s rotation and keeps your subjects centred for longer observation sessions. Using the motor to track, instead of the more common manual cable not only ensures steady and smooth movement but also greatly reduces vibrations. The manual slow-motion declination cable allows for adjustments if necessary. To further reduce vibrations Konus outfits the focuser with a motor that can achieve a smooth fine focus that manual focusing often cannot.

Assembled as a complete observation platform, the scope includes an adjustable-height aluminium tripod, a red dot finderscope for faster alignment and sighting, and two eyepieces. The 10mm eyepiece produces 100x power, and the 17mm produces 59x. A filter is also included for users to safely make detailed observations of the Moon. To transport and carry the OTA and tripod are two bags with zipper closures.
