Celestron CE31145-DS NexStar 130 SLT Computerized Telescope
Style:130 SLT Newtonian | Configuration:Telescope Only
The popularity of our NexStar 114 models inspired us to go bigger! We are
proud to introduce NexStar 130SLT. The NexStar 130SLT has 30% more light-
gathering power than our 114 mm telescope. And 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. 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
130SLT’s 5" primary mirror. Because of the Newtonian design, the mirror gives
fully color-corrected views that are best suited for astronomical use.
Celestron’s computerized NexStar 130 SLT adds affordable
"Go-To" technology to a compact Newtonian reflector telescope. By using
mirrors instead of lenses, the Newtonian optics of the NexStar 130 SLT produce
an image nearly five times brighter than the NexStar 60 SLT refractor
telescope. The package includes everything except the batteries, and features
easy no-tool setup, two good eyepieces, and even includes a student version of
"The Sky" planetarium software. The Newtonian design of the NexStar 130 SLT is
optimized to produce bright images over a wide field of view. When I use an
optional 32mm Plossl eyepiece, the famous Double Cluster in Perseus looks like
a display of celestial fireworks with streamers of stars trailing across the 2
degree field of view. The standard equipment 25mm eyepiece magnifies the image
about 26 times, with a wide field of view just right for viewing deep space
objects like star clusters or the Orion Nebula. The included 9mm eyepiece (72x
magnification) offers great views of the Lunar disk and globular star clusters
like M13. And when I add a 2x Barlow lens to the 9mm eyepiece for a total
magnification of 144x, I can easily see cloud bands on the planet Jupiter and
pick up detail in Saturn’s rings. The NexStar 130 SLT also features
Celestron’s patented SkyAlign technology. With SkyAlign I don't need a star
chart or a compass to align the telescope, I just enter the date and time then
point the telescope at three bright stars. SkyAlign tells me the star names,
and allows the telescope to find over 4,000 stars, planets, and galaxies by
just pushing a button. The accurate tracking makes it easy to get high power
views of the planets, and allowed me to take some great pictures using a
Celestron NexImage webcam. I also like the "Two-Star align" and "Solar System
align" modes because I can often get the NexStar system up and running while
older scopes are still waiting for their alignment stars to appear in he
twilight. Reflector telescopes offer more light gathering power per dollar
than any other design, but that value is balanced by the fact that the mirrors
may need to be aligned or "collimated" occasionally. Using Celestron’s
Collimation Eyepiece I had no trouble fine tuning the optical alignment, and I
was rewarded with sharp views of Lunar craters even when I pushed the
magnification up to the theoretical limit of 300x. The other drawback of a
computerized telescope, of course, is battery consumption. An optional
PowerTank battery is a handy way to power the NexStar 130 SLT, and I like to
keep the tripod legs short and observe while seated because this gives me a
solid and comfortable view. --Jeff Phillips Pros: Wide field views
