Orion Spaceprobe 130 ST EQConsider this slightly used donation scope as-is… all it needs is an
eyepiece (i.e., 25 mm) and if desired, a finder scope. The Orion Spaceprobe 130 ST (short tube) is a convenient size and with a 5.1 in. aperture, and has a bright f/5 focal ratio. The scope is perfect for the more serious beginner or intermediate stargazer. The 130ST comes on an equatorial mount with dual setting circles and slow-motion hand controls. Once polar aligned, the EQ 2 will easily track celestial objects. Weight is only 27 pounds. Sale price is $150 or obo. Call John @ 623 544 2425.
