Product description

Celestron Nexstar 130SLT telescope
The Celestron NexStar 130SLT telescope is an affordable all-round reflector telescope with a lens diameter of 130mm. This telescope offers many features of high quality at a surprisingly affordable price. The large mirror makes for a high light gathering capacity, enabling you to see many heavenly bodies clearly and sharply. The telescope comes with a 9 and a 25 mm eyepiece. These fit into the 1.25 inch fitting; the telescope is also compatible with two inch diameter eyepieces. The Celestron NexStar 130SLT telescope comes with a CD-ROM with software for the telescope as well as with maps of the sky.

102SLT and 130SLT
The Celestron NexStar 130SLT is the reflector (Newtonian) alternative to the Celestron NexStar 102SLT refractor telescope. These telescopes have mostly the same features and even the price is slightly comparable. The difference lies in whether you prefer a reflector or a refractor telescope. A reflector (130SLT) has a larger lens so a high light output; however, with a refractor (102SLT) the images are sharper because the light has no detour.

Suitable for (astro) photography
This Celestron telescope is ideal for astrophotography. You do, however, need a proper camera adapter and T2 ring for this. These can be purchased separately and are available from our website. Below you will find some photographs taken with the Celestron NexStar 130SLT.

About the tripod
The tripod that comes with the Celestron NexStar 130SLT telescope has an altazimuth mount on very strong stainless steel legs. This tripod is very easy to collapse or to set up. Also, the stand features a convenient accessory tray to hold your maps of the sky, or other accessories that you use whilst stargazing.

GoTo
The telescope and mount have a full GoTo system. With this very useful system, the telescope will automatically find celestial objects for you. In the system 4000 celestial objects are pre-programmed which makes watching with this telescope easier and a lot of fun. The GoTo functionality features Celestron SkyAlign alignment technology which will align the telescope in no time at all

Extra information
We advice you to not use batteries with this mounting. The best option is to use a 220V or 12V adapter with 2.5A, or a portable energy source.

Review of the Celestron NexStar 130SLT

Pros and cons

Due to the high diameter of the lens, the telescope can also be used for observing deep sky objects
The telescope has a focal length of 650 millimeters and an objective diameter of 130 millimeters, making the telescope suitable for astrophotography
Thanks to the GoTo system you have quickly found various celestial bodies, making the telescope easy to operate
There is the possibility of using batteries as a power supply, but we strongly advise against this. This can cause damage in the long term
