This “ST”, or “Short Tube”, version of the SpaceProbe 130 reflector is indeed more compact than the standard model. The 130ST reflector optical tube measures 24″ long compared to 33″ on the standard 130. The focal length of the ST’s 130mm (5.1″) primary mirror is 650mm (f/5), yielding a wider field of view and brighter images for a given telescope eyepiece focal length. The 130mm aperture primary is a diffraction-limited parabolic mirror, the same type used on much larger reflector telescopes costing many times as much. On a short-focal-length design like this one, a parabolic mirror is a must for focusing incoming light to a point and delivering sharp, detailed images. Moreover, the secondary mirror is held in an advanced holder with thin 0.5mm metal vanes, to reduce diffraction spikes and light loss. These features combined with the included 25mm (26x power) and 10mm (65x power) Sirius Plossl telescope eyepieces and quick-release 6×30 achromatic finder scope make this one sweet optical system for astronomy! The SpaceProbe 130ST EQ reflector telescope also includes a collimation cap and center-marked primary mirror for easy optical alignment. This telescope comes with our value-packed Orion Beginner Barlow Kit for powerful performance! The included Beginner Barlow Kit is a great combination of accessories for anyone beginning a hobby of amateur astronomy and includes the powerful Orion Shorty 2x Barlow Lens, as well as the useful Orion Beginning Stargazers Toolkit.
