Skywatcher 5" Dobsonian - Collapsible - HALF Price

Skywatcher Heritage 130

5" Collapsible Dob


This is a very portable table top Dobsonian. With built in carry handle.
But at 5" it is still pretty good light collector.
It provides nice views, one of the best table top scopes around.
Easy to transport, quick and easy to setup.

Mine is just over 6 months old and practically as new. (purchased new 5th august 2018)
Too many scopes so this one is first to go.

As a guide, Andrews sell these for $299

I am willing to let this go to a good home for $145
I think that is a pretty good deal.

Pick Up NSW Central Coast (Wyong Shire).
It is pretty well balanced (adjustable) and has proper collimation screws.

Specs:
Aperture 130mm / 5"
Focal Length 650mm
Focal Ratio f/5
Aluminized parabolic mirror
Secondary Mirror Diameter 34.5mm
Red Dot Finder
Helical Focuser
Manual
1.25" Eyepieces included standard 10mm and 25mm
Tube Length 370mm (collapsed)
Weight 6.5kg

This is a nice, portable scope.
With a 5" aperture, it produces a good size sharp image.
Although its a tabletop mount, it performs well.
This independent reviewer was also impressed.:
