This is a beautiful Telescope. I've owned this for several years and have only used it on 3 or 4 occasions. It needs to go to a good home. List price on Amazon is $309.

Orion SpaceProbe 130ST Equatorial Reflector Telescope

The Orion SpaceProbe 130ST reflector telescope is perfect for the more serious beginner or intermediate stargazer. With a 130 millimeter parabolic primary mirror, the 130ST provides great views of deep-sky objects on the included EQ-2 mount and stable tripod.

The Orion SpaceProbe 130ST telescope comes on a sturdy and precise EQ-2 equatorial mount with dual setting circles and slow-motion hand controls. After a simple polar-alignment procedure, the EQ-2 mount allows you to easily track celestial objects as they appear to migrate across the night sky, so you can observe them in detail. The adjustable-height aluminum tripod is strong yet lightweight and includes an accessory tray so you can keep eyepieces, flashlights, and other accessories close by while using the reflector telescope.

The relatively compact SpaceProbe 130ST EQ weighs just 27 pounds once assembled. It's an easy telescope to take out to your favorite stargazing spot, whether just outside the back door or in a more distant location away from streetlights and light pollution. If you're looking for a better-quality first telescope or a nicely portable telescope to complement your big Dobsonian, you'll love the Orion SpaceProbe 130ST EQ Reflector Telescope.

25mm Sirius Plossl Eyepiece

The included 1.25 inch Orion 25 millimeter Sirius Plossl eyepiece provides a 26-power view when used with the SpaceProbe 130ST reflector telescope. Using this eyepiece's moderate magnification is a great way to begin exploring interesting objects in the sparkling night sky. Offering a wide 52° apparent field of view, the 25 millimeter Sirius Plossl eyepiece yields extremely sharp images of impressively high contrast. You'll be amazed at the crisp, clear views of sights like the cratered surface of the Moon and much more!

10mm Sirius Plossl Eyepiece

When you're ready to study objects with more magnification, use the included 10 millimeter Sirius Plossl eyepiece. When inserted into the SpaceProbe 130ST reflector telescope, the 10 millimeter Plossl provides a powerful, 65x view with a 52° apparent field of view, so you can inspect interesting objects more closely. We recommend starting out with the lower-power 25 millimeter Plossl, then switching to the 10 millimeter ocular to boost the power of your telescope's view.

6x30 Finder Scope

Following a simple alignment procedure, you can use the included 6x30 finder scope to accurately aim the SpaceProbe 130ST reflector at objects in the sky like the Moon, bright planets, galaxies and star clusters. Once aligned with the telescope, just peer through the finder scope and move the telescope until the cross hairs are centered on the object you want to see. Look in the telescope, and it'll be right there!
