This classic Newtonian design telescope mounted on a sturdy, simple to use Twilight Nano altazimuth mount is a ready-made partner for delving deep into the solar system and beyond. Due to the sizable aperture and fast focal ratio, this scope is suitable for astronomers who want to observe planetary detail but  also wide-field, deep space objects such as nebulae and many Messier objects.

With its fairly wide field of view and ample light gathering ability, you'll be happy to have the included smartphone camera adapter to photograph celestial objects.

Features

  • Wide-field and bright images - The ample 114mm aperture and fast f/4.3 focal ratio deliver bright, wide-field images.
  • Dependable optics - Fully-coated Newtonian optics reduce light diffraction, making for high contrast, true-color images.
  • Quick and portable design - The scope's nimble size and the mount's quick set-up design mean this is a telescope that will get used. It's also a perfect grab-and-go companion for the developing intermediate astronomer. 
  • Smooth adjustment - The mount head is controlled by a single handle for smooth, easy movement. The accessory tray acts as a spreader bar, adding convenience and stability. 
  • Out-of-the-box viewing - Includes all the accessories you need to start viewing right out of the box, including a quality glass lens 25mm Plossl eyepiece and a red-dot finder scope.

Explore Scientific Mak Cas 152 with EXOS2GT MOUNT

I did considerable shopping around and finally decided to buy my 152 Mak from Telescope Space. Ryan was very helpful with all my questions concerning Explore Scientific and my specific purchase. After a short period using my scope and mount, the mount seemed to have more play than it should have. Ryan had the Explore Scientific owner call me directly, where he immediately offered to exchange my mount. He also had the factory ship out the new mount while I was still using my original unit. Excellent service and sales support from both Ryan at Telescope Space and Explore Scientific. I will buy again from Telescope Space!

Monocular

Very clear, I am impressed for $38

Ryan knows what he is talking about.

Prompt customer service, positive attitude, great results

An engineering beauty

I have owned many tripods. I have spent years trying to find an altazmith tripod that could carry a reasonable amount wieght, yet be portable, and have the handling and maneuverability of a Porsche, especially as the power goes up. This is a very well enginered tripod. It is as if they said let's not try to make it look a certain way, let's make it work a certain way, and that's why it looks extraterrestrial. Very well made with very little plastic. Fit and finish is close to perfect........9.9 on a 10 scale....5 stars +.....Carlos B.

Great Scope & Mount

As a higher-level amateur, I was looking for a decent scope & mount that I can modify for my needs. The 130mm Newtonian scope fits my needs quite well. It comes with a 25mm eye piece--which is great. I would consider purchasing other eye pieces at the same time to give you a variety of magnification options. I'd recommend something like a 12mm and 8, or 6mm eye pieces to complement the 25mm. Getting a 2X Barlow will double your eye piece viewing options. The higher number will give you a wider view, smaller number a tighter, more magnified view. In order to just resolve the bands & zones of Jupiter, I need to use an 8mm eyepiece. For exploring Lunar geography, or seeing the Galilean Moons, the 25mm is sufficient. Saturn is just discernable, until you switch-out the eye piece for a 12mm, or smaller. The heavy & stable tripod mount is easy to set up, and the large rotation nobs allow you to smoothly track your subject as the Earth rotates. The Red Dot spotting site is dead-on accurate (once you dial it in). If you want a good, intermediate telescope: one that's neither too cheap, nor one that's too expensive, the 130mm Newtonian should fit your needs quite well.
