Celestron Nexstar Slt

Product Details

The NexStar SLT range of telescopes from Celestron is firmly aimed at the entry-level to mid-range buyer with prices ranging from $291 to $518. As with the AstroMaster series of telescopes, NexStar SLT is a mixture of reflectors and refractors with the largest refractor having a 102 mm aperture whilst the largest reflector sports 130 mm

Coming with pre-assembled stainless steel tripods you can be up and running with your SLT scope in a matter of minutes and without requiring tools! The scopes can be used to view most solar system objects easily such as the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn.

Each of the SLT telescopes comes with the Celestron SkyAlign feature. Simply enter a date, time and location then view three selected bright objects in the sky and the NexStar will then be able to automatically line-up to any object in its database of thousands of celestial objects.

All optical elements are made from glass and the steel tripod mountings ensure smooth operation using the manual controls.
