Sky-Watcher Black Diamond 130mm (5.1\") Reflector Telescope

One of our most popular telescopes has received a facelift. Featuring a new metal-flake black paint job, and the same great optics we've come to expect from Sky-Watcher, the new Black Diamond 130mm reflector is a sleek beginners astronomical telescope, with 30% more light gathering than 114mm reflectors.

The mount can be outfitted with a single axis drive for automatic tracking of the night sky. Compact and easy enough to set up to make it an ideal companion at the cottage.
