Our first test at the Sky-Watcher Explorer-130 used to be to check the collimation of the mirrors, which we found were well aligned. This scope has one of the most largest mirrors in its price range, which is a smart asset because it means it might probably gather more light…Optically, the quality of the field of view at the same time as studying the star Altair used to be very good the use of the supplied 25mm eyepiece. The star remained sharp across 80 per cent of the view, with only slight distortion just about the field edges….Taking the whole lot into account, this telescope made observing the night sky enjoyable and reasonably hassle free….great views coupled with ease of use.
