Recommended it? Yes

I bought this for my daughter's 8th birthday.  OK, maybe it was also partly for me. As this was an educational toy, I was pondering whether it was better to have a manual system which would demonstrate the curved relative motion of celestial objects across the sky, or have a computerized/motorized...

I received this telescope for my birthday in April 2008 and I love it!  The included 25mm and 9mm eyepieces are good quality and I have been able to see many deep sky objects with them.  I have purchased a barlow lens, a 6mm wide view lens, a 40mm, and a 20mm lens to round out my collection.  I use...

For my son's 12th Birthday I wanted to get him a telescope. I took my time, researched telescopes, various companies, read reviews and eventually settled on the 130 SLT. Once it arrived, we took it out of the box, spent a few minutes with the directions, and within 30 minutes we were in business... Read full review »

Light enters the tube traveling to the mirror at the back end. Light is then bent forward in the tube to a single point its focal plane. A flat mirror called a diagonal intercepts the light and points it out the side of the tube at right angles to the tube through the eyepiece. The eyepiece is placed there for easy viewing. Newtonian Reflector telescopes replace heavy lenses with mirrors to collect and focus the light providing much more light gathering power for the money. You can have focal lengths up to 1000 mm and still enjoy a telescope that is relatively compact and portable. Newtonian Reflector telescopes do require more care and maintenance because the primary mirror is exposed to air and dust. However this small drawback does not hamper this type of telescope's popularity with those who want an economical telescope that can still resolve faint distant objects. Newtonian reflectors produce a right-side-up image but the image will appear rotated based on the location of the eyepiece holder in relation to the ground. Newtonian reflectors are best for astronomical use where right-side-up does not matter. Newtonian Advantages Lowest cost per inch of aperture compared to Refractors and Catadioptrics since mirrors can be produced at less cost than lenses in medium to large apertures
