      5.0 Konus MotorMax 130 HM


      Tracks very well, heavy duty mount, sharp views, built in flip mirror!


      I haven't found any down sides and I had this scope for a year!


      This was my first Mak telescope and although I am used to reflector telescopes, I have to say that this small 5.1" telescope blew me away with all the features and the views! The mount was stable enough to hold my Meade 8" f/6 OTA!! The views were far more than I expected! And with the built-in flip mirror, it made it easy to have an imager on the bottom and an eyepiece on top! I love this scope!! And for under $600 I'm sure you will be just as pleased as I am!! This telescope's mount is one of the better mounts I have owned! Track right on the target with a 20mm EP for well over an hour! Polar setup is easy with the larger polar scope, most other telescopes have this optional and is 1/2 the size!! Plus a 10x50mm finder!! That's huge and makes even the very faintest DSO pop out!!....The mount shown is not the one I had!! I had the 2" tubular tripod with the dual axis mount!!
