    Being the biggest aperture in the AstroMaster Series at 130mm, this is one great reflector. Being a reflector telescope it will eventually need to be adjusted/collimated and the Primary Mirror unfortunately does not have the center marker. It also comes with an upgraded Red Dot Finder, not the one shown above. In my opinion, this is a great amateur scope you will enjoy for some time.
