For observation of faint nebulae and star clusters in a wide and bright field of view

Designed with beginners in mind, the Vixen AP-R130SF 130mm f/5 Reflector Telescope boasts excellent light gathering power, making it the perfect choice for those stepping into the realm of astronomy.

The 130mm aperture ensures a captivating experience, capturing the elusive beauty of faint nebulae and star clusters, all within a wide and vivid field of view.


AP equatorial mount

The Advanced Polaris mount is ideally suited for beginners who want to become familiar with equatorial mount or experienced observers who want a simple grab-and-go mount. The AP mount securely supports your telescope optical tube for comfortable observing. With its friction control system, the mount can be quickly moved to your target object.


Stylish design

The new stylish and smart design removes a difficult image on astronomical telescopes. Together with just 3.6kg lightweight body (without counterweight), you can easily handle full-scale astronomical telescopes. As the four AA batteries for power supply is integrated inside the body and adoption of internal electrical contacts eliminates successfully external wiring which is exposed to the outside in the past.


Friction control system

Simply point the target objects by moving the optical tube by hands. The friction control system allows you to manually point the telescope at the object without using knobs and clamps.


Simple polar alignment

The optional polar meter can be attached on the equatorial mount for simple polar alignment. Even beginners can quickly align polar axis. For precision alignment, the polar axis scope is usually used, but the polar meter can outperform especially where Polaris is not visible.


Polar alignment scope PF-L

The polar alignment scope PF-L features the employment of three stars alignment system and built-in dark field illuminator to enable alignment while looking into the polar alignment scope. This illumination powers off automatically to prevent unnecessary consumption of power. Corresponding to the polar alignment scope PF-L, our free app "PFL Assist" for smartphone and tablet that support polar alignment by visualizing a visible position in the constellation displayed.


R130SF Newton Reflector

The 130mm aperture Newton reflector which is excellent in light gathering power is ideal for observation of faint nebulae and star clusters in a wide and bright field of view.


APP-TL130 tripod

The compact APP-TL130 tripod is adjustable between 60cm and 130cm, combining both the portability of the photographic tripod and the strength of the astronomical telescope tripod. Tip of the tripod can be switched between rubber and metal spikes, so that it will not damage the floor even when it is used indoors.
