The R130Sf 5” Newtonian telescope is a favorite of many astronomers for its light gathering capabilities.  It’s the perfect medium aperture, pick up and go instrument. Vixen has packaged this popular scope with all the quality accessories you need to start viewing right out of the box, including two quality eyepieces and a mount.

The PORTA II Mount gives great performance when viewing objects at high magnification, the damping and vibration being significantly reduced as compared to other lesser quality telescope mounts.

Universe Today says, "The Vixen R130Sf is absolutely the perfect size for someone who needs enough aperture to light up popular deep sky objects, but doesn't need to lug around a 12" telescope ....The Porta II Mount II is quality through and through, it's not going to just fall apart on you and it would be oh-so-easy to adapt any number of other telescopes right to it just as easily as the R130Sf went into place with that blessed universal dovetail."
