Celestron NexStar 130SLT Computerised Telescope

Celestron NexStar 130SLT Computerised Telescope

The NexStar 130 SLT has 30% more light-gathering power than a 114mm telescope.

Like the other models in the SLT Series, the 130 SLT comes with a fully computerized hand control which gives you the ability to automatically slew to any of its 4,000+ objects, including over 600 galaxies, 300 clusters and dozens of beautiful binary stars.

With its pre-assembled, adjustable steel tripod, the NexStar 130 SLT can be up and ready to use in a matter of minutes. Celestron's new SkyAlign alignment technology and the included StarPointer Finderscope with a red LED, makes aligning a breeze.

View the details of the lunar surface, the rings of Saturn, the polar ice caps on Mars, the cloud belts on Jupiter or a number of the Messier objects such as the globular cluster in Hercules (M13).

Begin to explore some of the fainter Messier objects using the additional light-gathering capabilities of the 130 SLT’s 5" primary mirror, because of the Newtonian design, the mirror gives fully color-corrected views that are best suited for astronomical use.
