Is the Celestron 130eq a bird-jones type reflector?

Boyd:

 

When your asking a question like this, it is very helpful to provide a link. 

 

The only Celestron 130mm EQ I know of is the Astromaster and it has a spherical mirror.   That means that inherently it has nearly a full wave of spherical aberration, not a good thing.
