The popularity of Celestron's NexStar 114 models inspired them to go bigger!  We are proud to introduce Celestron NexStar 130SLT Computerized Telescope.  The NexStar 130 SLT has 30% more light-gathering power than the 114mm telescope.

And the 130 SLT, like the other models in the SLT Series, comes with a fully computerized hand control.  The computerized hand control 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.  Our 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), or the Great Nebula in Orion (M42).  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. Comes with 1.25 inch and 2 inch eyepiece adapters

Celestron's NexStar 130 SLT comes with a Computerised Goto Mount featuring an internal battery compartment for power cord free operation. The mount has precision motors that give it superb accuracy and smoothness when tracking objects in the sky. Included with the mount is the NexRemote hand control system with a database of over 4000 celestial objects.
