Celestron Astro Fi 130mm Telescope

The Celestron's Astro Fi 130mm f/5 Reflector Telescope scope sports a large 130mm aperture and a short 650mm focal length to produce a fast focal ratio that can resolve deep-sky objects that smaller refractor-style scopes can't. This complete observation rig includes the optical tube assembly, a motorised mount, an aluminium tripod, two eyepieces, and a red-dot finder. The OTA is mounted on a single-arm motorised alt-az mount.

Guiding the mount is the SkyPortal app - packed with over 120,000 objects, it is designed to help users set up quickly and start observing faster. The app offers alignment aids, can automatically find objects in the night sky, and even offers guided tours of the most interesting objects overhead on any given night. 

  • 102mm Maksutov-Cassegrain Telescope
  • 1325mm Focal Length, f/13 Focal Ratio
  • StarBright XLT Optical Coating System
  • NexStar+ Computer Hand Controller
  • 40,000+ Object Database with Sky Tours
  • Single-Fork Motorised GoTo Alt-Az Mount
  • 25mm Eyepiece, StarPointer Finder
  • Stainless Steel Tripod with EQ Wedge

With highly-reflective aluminium and SiO2 (quartz) mirror coatings, light loss is limited so you can make detailed observations of the Moon, view planets and distant nebulae. It also offers great wide-field views of the sky for comet watching and asteroid searching.

The Astro Fi 130 is a computerised alt-azimuth Newtonian telescope perfect for terrestrial and celestial viewing on the go. The Astro Fi offers dazzling views of craters on the Moon, the rings of Saturn, the Great Red Spot on Jupiter, the Orion Nebula, the Hercules Globular Cluster and so much more at night. In addition, the star diagonal provides right side up viewing for use as a spotting scope during the day.

Setting up the telescope is a breeze and will have you observing in no time. Even on your first time out, you can assemble the telescope, its accessories, and download SkyPortal app in just a few minutes. The adjustable tripod legs allow you to customise the telescope’s height to your liking. The total telescope kit weighs just 18 pounds, making it perfect for impromptu observing sessions or transporting wherever life’s adventures take you.

Astro Fi’s lens cap does double duty as a smartphone adapter for even more fun. Position your smartphone inside the adapter and then secure it over the Astro Fi’s eyepiece to capture images and video of all your discoveries.

Computerised Alt-Azimuth telescope

Take in the sky with the computerised alt-azimuth telescope. This straightforward design allows the telescope to move in all directions.

Integrated WiFi & Celestron’s SkyPortal App

Control your telescope using your smart device. The Astro Fi series emits its own wireless connection to Celestron’s SkyPortal app to provide easy remote observing. Celestron’s SkyPortal app replaces the traditional telescope hand control for a 100% wireless experience. Scan the sky for an object you would like to view, tap the object in SkyPortal and watch your Astro Fi telescope automatically slew to the object. While observing, SkyPortal provides information on the object; it’s never been more fun to explore the universe!

NOTE: Due to the amount of information SkyPortal has to offer, we recommend downloading the app before going out to observe.

SkyAlign Technology

Getting ready to observe is quick and painless thanks to Celestron’s award-winning SkyAlign technology. Centre any three bright objects in the eyepiece, and your telescope calculates their position. You can even generate a Sky Tour of all the best celestial objects to view based on your exact time and location.

Accessories Included

The Astro Fi 130 comes with two eyepieces (25mm and 10 mm), an integrated smartphone adapter, and a red dot finderscope.  The two eyepieces offer different magnifications to view your intended object. The red dot finderscope will help you quickly centre an object in your eyepiece for easier observing.

Lens Cap/Smartphone Adapter – Image celestial or terrestrial objects with this smartphone adapter! The Astro Fi lens cap has an integrated smartphone adapter to capture great images of the Moon, planets, and terrestrial targets like birds and wildlife. With its light, rigid frame, this accessory allows you to connect any smartphone to any telescope eyepiece with an outside diameter of 45mm or smaller. This smartphone adapter installs easily over the top of an eyepiece while bungee cords securely hold your phone in position so you can snap images or videos.  While the vast majority of smartphones can be used with the case on, some very large and/or bulky phone cases (such as folio style cases) may need to be removed for the phone to fit in the adapter.

Starry Night Software

Download Celestron’s Starry Night Software and learn about the night sky, celestial objects, and how to plan your next observing session. Celestron Starry Night Software is the premier astronomy software package on the market, providing resources and knowledge to view our solar system and beyond.
