This award winning Telescope has full 130mm aperture optics that will reveal fine detail in Solar system as well as deep sky objects. The Sky-Watcher EXPLORER range are standard Newtonian reflectors of excellent quality and versatility, ranging in aperture from a respectable 130mm to an incredible light-gulping 300mm aperture, catering for astronomers of all levels. Whether your interest is Deep-Sky, the Moon and Planets, or a combination of both, the EXPLORER range offers excellent all round Diffraction-Limited performance.

This classical Newton Reflector telescope is quite a large instrument in its class. With a diameter of 130mm, you can find hundreds of objects in the sky!
This  class-size the telescope offers impressive efficiency for the beginner: with a  diameter of 130mm, the mirror collects more light - 30% more than a  114mm diameter mirror - so that you can see more Deep Sky objects and in higher detail. The ring nebula in  Lyra, for example, is visible as a clear "smoke ring", or the Andromeda Galaxy appears in its full splendour. Concerning planet observations, you can reach magnifications up to 260x to show planetary discs.
