Telescope Description 

Designed as an affordable computerized 'Go-To' telescope, the NexStar 127SLT telescope from Celestron provides an excellent balance of power, performance, and portability. With its computer-automated technology, the SLT is up and running after locating 3 bright celestial objects.

This SLT is a Maksutov-Cassegrain reflector with a 127mm aperture and a focal length of 1500mm. The optical system is fully coated for enhanced sharpness and clarity. Two eyepieces are included - one 25mm as well as a 9.0mm. The mounting platform incorporates a sturdy stainless steel tripod with a motorized and computerized altazimuth mount.

New and experienced observers will appreciate NexStar 127SLT's comprehensive database of 4000+ objects, along with the customized lists of the most intriguing deep-sky objects, planets, and double stars.

Combining a first-class feature-set with Celestron's legendary optical standards, the 127SLT provides amateur astronomers with a sophisticated and easy-to-use telescope. The computerized hand-control provides simple on-screen instructions that guide the observer through the alignment procedures. Each step, helpful hints, and valuable reference materials are easily accessible to ensure a simple and pleasurable viewing experience.
