It's Great!

 

I have a 3.5 inch Mak-Cas from another good manufacturer. Even though the Mak-Cas provides greater magnification and is very good for land observation, this Celestron, SLT130 with its 5 inch mirror is far superior for star gazing. It makes observing so...

Excellent educational toy

 

I bought this for my daughter's 8th birthday.  OK, maybe it was also partly for me. As this was an educational toy, I was pondering whether it was better to have a manual system which would demonstrate the curved relative motion of celestial objects...

Good quality for the price.  Easy to use once configured

Could be sturdier - slight winds will cause vibrations.  9mm lens not very good

Wonderful telescope!

 

I received this telescope for my birthday in April 2008 and I love it!  The included 25mm and 9mm eyepieces are good quality and I have been able to see many deep sky objects with them.  I have purchased a barlow lens, a 6mm wide view lens, a 40mm, and...

Easy to use.  Great optics.  Huge database of go-to objects to choose from

Flimsy battery pack and does not store time/date info - must manually enter each use

First Telescope

 

For my son's 12th Birthday I wanted to get him a telescope. I took my time, researched telescopes, various companies, read reviews and eventually settled on the 130 SLT. Once it arrived, we took it out of the box, spent a few minutes with the...

Easy to Assemble, Easy instructions, quick turn-around time from set up to viewing

Product Specifications

Celestron Nexstar 130SLT Newtonian Reflector Telescope lets you travel through our solar system and explore nearby stars and galaxies without leaving earth. It acts as a window to worlds beyond knowledge and imagination. With SkyAlign and PC connectivity, you become familiar with other worlds. If the many wonders of deep space fascinate you but you don't know how to find those fascinating sights, why not let this Celestron telescope do the finding for you? The new SkyAlign easy alignment technology and Star Pointer red dot LED finder of the Celesctron NexStar 130 SLT 5.1 go-to reflector make lining up on the sky a breeze. Once aligned, the scope's computer hand control will find more than 4,000 celestial objects for you and will track them unerringly while you observe at your leisure. With its pre-assembled adjustable height steel tripod and easy no-tool assembly, the NexStar 130 SLT can be up and ready to take you on a tour of the Universe in a matter of minutes. The 130mm aperture of the NexStar 130 SLT gathers well over two and a half times as much light as even an advanced 80mm refractor, for not much more money, giving you deep space images that are bright and well defined. With the appropriate high power eyepiece and a resolution 62% higher than an 80mm scope, it will give you lunar/planetary images that are crisp and detailed. Whether an advanced entry-level scope for the beginning astronomer, or a second scope for the more-than-casual backyard astronomer, the NexStar 130SLT takes you beyond. Adjustable height tripod Celestron 2-Year Warranty
