With a very high light collection capacity it is an easy matter to undertake excursions into the world of deep-sky objects. Whether it is Saturn with its ring systems, or the Ring Nebula 2300 light years away with its diaphanous ring – with the Omegon 130/920 even more is possible!
The 130mm aperture offers around 30% more light gathering capacity than the smaller 114/900mm model and the optics collect 344 times more light compared to the naked eye. These figures show that this size of telescope already has a host of possibilities.
It is not always possible to use the highest magnification when observing, but, under good conditions and with a suitable eyepiece, magnifications of up to 260 times are feasible. The resolution and magnifications possible are already sufficient to get to know the initial features on some planets. The tube has a 1.25” focuser, which can take all the standard eyepieces.
The advantages in a nutshell:
- 130mm aperture optics
- red dot finder for easy location of celestial objects
- stable secondary mirror spider vanes
- 1.25” focuser for all standard 1.25” eyepieces and filters
- collimation adjustment screws for the secondary and primary mirrors
- a tube weight of 3.4 kg and tube exterior diameter of 168mm
