Comments about Vixen R130Sf Reflector OTA:

This is just the telescope I was looking for to take on vacation to dark sky sites. At slightly over 5 inches of aperture it provides more than enough light grasp to bring in faint fuzzies and it's 650mm focal length makes it compact enough to carry on an airplane and hold it on my lap if necessary. The scope also gives very pleasing views of the Moon, Sun and planets. The two eyepieces (6mm & 20mm) included are pretty decent, especially the 20mm Plossl. The only thing about the scope that I am not crazy about is the long focuser due to a required, screw-on extension tube that is apparently necessary to bring eyepieces to focus. That is why I deducted 1 star from the rating. This is a very practical, nice-looking telescope and well-worth the regular asking price, although I purchased mine on sale; definitely a typical Vixen-quality telelscope.

I just looked through the Vixen R130Sf and was amazed at the details on the moon and Jupiter. My dad then showed me the dumbell Nebula. Very cool!
