Product Description

SPECIAL OFFER:

Receive The Night Sky Explorer kit (planisphere included), valued at $39.95 FREE when you purchase this telescope.

The NexStar 130SLT has 30% more light-gathering power than the 114mm telescope in that range.

The 130SLT, 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 130SLT can be up and ready to use in a matter of minutes. The 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 130SLT’s 5″ primary mirror.

Because of the Newtonian design, the mirror gives fully colour-corrected views that are best suited for astronomical use.
