Sky-Watcher (Synta) 130/650 is a reflecting telescope of the Newton system with a mirror diameter of 130 mm and a focal length of 650 mm. It allows for advanced visual observations of planets and the Moon, showing a large amount of details on the surfaces of these objects. Due to its construction, it is also recommended for observing nebular objects. Under good observational conditions, it can reveal over a hundred nebulae, galaxies and star clusters contained in the Messier and NGC catalogs. It also has a built-in focuser with a diameter of 1.25 inches, which allows the use of any glasses made in this standard. The whole is a perfect solution for both beginners and more advanced observers, guaranteeing a very competitive price.
The telescope's EQ2 paraglider mount provides sufficient stiffness for observing at high magnifications. The light, adjustable height aluminum stand is easy to carry, while the accessory shelf and the precise micromovement mechanism for manual control complete the set.
A characteristic feature of this model is the shortened focal length while maintaining the very good quality of the mirror's figure. In this way, we obtain a wider field of view and greater surface brightness when observing deep sky objects and in astrophotography, while maintaining high resolution so much more important in the observations of the Moon and planets.

This device focuses a lot of light. Looking directly at the sun through this device can result in partial or complete loss of vision. For the observation of the Sun, we recommend the safest method of spectacle projection, that is, projecting the image of the target of our day star on a piece of paper.
