The 130mm refractor telescope is intuitive to use. Explore the sky with the two slow-motion control knobs that allow for fine pointing adjustments in both Right Ascension (RA) and Declinations (DEC) axes. The included tripod has an adjustable height of up to 1.3 meters and an accessory tray.
Become an AstroMaster in no time
Use the AstroMaster 130EQ straight out of the box. A no-tool setup takes just minutes and then you are ready to view the night sky. Download the premier Starry Night Basic Software with a 36,000 object database, printable sky maps and enhanced 3D renderings of stars, exoplanets and galaxies.
Included in this kit are two fully coated glass optics eyepieces: 20mm and 10mm. The 20mm with built-in erect image corrector provides a 33x optical magnification that is wide enough to locate deep-sky objects whilst also providing excellent detail. The 10mm eyepiece provides a 65x magnification for highly detailed observations of the Moon craters and seas, the moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn and the expansive Milky Way. Both eyepieces are manufactured to Celestron’s high-quality standards to ensure a bright, sharp view of the night sky every time.

Can you use a Barlow lens with the Celestron AstroMaster Telescope?
Yes, you can! Partner this with a 2x or 3x 1.25” Barlow lens to double or triple the eyepiece’s magnification.
Which filters can I use with the eyepieces?
The eyepieces can take any 1.25” eyepieces. Why not check out the Celestron Lunar and Planetary Filter Set - 1.25" to get the most out of your telescope and view the planets in even greater detail.
- Never look directly at the Sun with the naked eye or with an optic (unless you have the proper solar filter). Permanent and irreversible eye damage may result.
- Never use your optic to project an image of the Sun onto any surface. Internal heat build-up can damage the optic and any accessories attached to it.
- Never leave your optic unsupervised. Make sure an adult who is familiar with the correct operating procedures is with your optic at all times, especially when children are present.
