Celestron NexStar 130SLT Computerised Telescope
Featuring a black, 130mm reflector tube based on a computerised mount, the NexStar 130SLT Computerised Telescope not only looks good, but has the size and functionality to make it a really nice telescope to use. The 130mm aperture allows for a 30% increase in light collection over the 114SLT, and the magnification is ample enough to even make out the rings of Saturn! With a built-in 4,000 object database, you will not be left wanting for something to look at.
A unique feature of the NexStar 130SLT Computerised Telescope is that it supports 2″ eyepieces, making for a wider field of view – a feature not commonly available in tripod mounted newtonian telescopes. The added benefit of erect image optics means this telescope can also be used for basic landviewing. The telescope can be manually controlled using the up / down / left / right buttons on the hand controller.
The NexStar 130SLT Computerised Telescope is a fantastic telescope for viewing objects within our solar system. Moon craters will look fabulous, the moons of Jupiter will be apparant, and the basic shape of Saturn will be visible. This is an ideal telescope for viewing planets and constellations.
Celestron was founded by Tom Johnson whose first telescope design was a simple 6-inch reflector, built for his young son. He gradually progressed to making larger scopes in more sophisticated designs.
Today, the Celestron company is an industry leader in designing and manufacturing optical equipment including telescopes (computerised and non-computerised), binoculars, spotting scopes and its accompanying accessories. Celestron’s legacy spans 50 years, and has grown to enjoy recognition from amateurs to serious astronomers globally.
