Product Description

The Heritage-130P has been specially designed to celebrate the International Year of Astronomy and the 400th Anniversary of Galileo's first telescope. This is not only a highly functional precision optical instrument but also a beautiful collector's piece and ideal gift. The telescope tube is adorned with the names of many famous figures that have made significant contributions to the advancement of astronomy over this 400yr period, including Galileo Galilei himself. Housing the same superb Parabolic Primary Mirror as our highly-renowned Explorer-130P, this telescope is an excellent and capable all-rounder which will provide wonderful views of both the Moon & Planets as well as Deep-Sky Objects.

The item arrived very quickly and was well packaged. You get 2 eye peices with the telescope. A 25mm and a 10mm.

The 25mm is the one you'll use the most, it gives a very wide field view of the sky, which is perfect for viewing anything from planets, nebulas and even galaxys. The quality of the image and optics are phenomenal. I currently own a 3inch cat telescope and would say this one is easily 2 times better.

The 10mm is best for planets or very faint objects. Jupiter looks amazing right now through this telescope. It's bands and moons are clearley visible. Be sure to look at it every few days, as what you see largley depends on the atmosphere.

The red dot finder included is also very useful. Once you've lined it up, you point the red dot at what you want to see and your telescope will be there.

The whole telescope folds down to about half of it's size, which is perfect if you don't have a spare room for it.

It is a decent weight, but still light enough to transport and move.

I've managed to store it in a wardrobe. Theres also a nice carrying handle for it.

Overall this is an excellent telescope at an excellent price. Skywatcher also do light pollution filters for about 20 pounds. These work really well if you have orange street lights blotting out the stars.

I would reccomend this for the serious beginner or intermediate astronomer. If you are an absolute beginner i would recommend a pair of binoculars first, so you can learn the sky and where all the constellations are.

Before I say anything negative, this telescope provides spectacular optics for the price! Crisp, clear, bright views of the night sky.

However this comes at a cost. All the screws to collapse or move the telescope are a cheap feeling plastic. This means it can be very difficult to get it to sit securely in one place while focused on an object. The secondary mirror attachment is poor also. The first one that was sent out was completely bent so it was impossible to align it properly. It was picked up by courier the next morning with a replacement arriving that evening! This one is aligned correctly but the secondary mirror can still spin out of place quite easily.

Basically you could either buy another scope that feels sturdy and well built but does it's job to a less satisfactory level, or you can buy this which will kick anything in it's price bracket's ass when it comes to optics but feels pretty flimsy. I definitely recommend getting this if you can't spend anymore than £150, but if you're not strapped for cash I'd look at getting a more expensive model to get the best of both worlds.

As a side note it packs away very well and looks great in any room, which is unusual for dobsonian telescopes.

Great views, smart, but cheap feeling.

Bought this as I didn't really believe that I would be able to see anything from such a cheap little telescope. I was wrong. Beautiful views of jupiter and saturn and the moon looks fantastic through it. Admittedly you do really need to get a decent barlow lens for it and a couple of decent eye pieces for the best veiws but I am still in awe at what I have seen so far,

Great value telescope giving excellent views of Earths moon, Saturn with its rings clearly visible and Jupiter. The only downside is some parts of the telescope are made cheaply and the dovetail clamp is fairly loose on my Heritage 130p. I hope to fix this by adding some rubber strips along the dovetail bar. The locking knob does not tighten sufficiently to hold the optical tube firmly so will also need some attention, hence the 4/5 stars for the rating.

Excellent starter scope, The moon looks great thru it and you can just see both Jupiter and the rings of Saturn, but, if you want to see the planets with a little more clarity invest in some accessories. Pity I can't add a couple of shots I took through it with my mobile :\

Bought as a pressie for OH - would be great if we could just have more clear nights with less cloud! It's easy to store away and easy to take out and use without too much faffing about. We're just beginners and this is perfect to put on a table on the balcony on those warm balmy nights to do some star gazing....
