Product description

Style:127 SLT Maksutov  |  Configuration:Telescope Only

Building on the popularity of our NexStar 114SLT telescope, the 127SLT by Celestron inspires us to go bigger, with 20% more light-gathering power than our 114mm telescope. The Celestron NexStar 127SLT is a computerized telescope that offers a database of more than 40,000 stars, galaxies, nebulae, and more. The telescope locates your object with pinpoint accuracy and tracks it. At the heart of the telescope’s Maksutov-Cassegrain optical design, a large 127mm primary mirror gives fully color-corrected views ideal for astronomical use. The 127SLT comes with a fully computerized NexStar+ hand control. The computerized hand control gives you the ability to automatically slew to any object.

This telescope for adults and kids to be used together is ideal for weekend camping trips or excursions to dark sky sites. Its compact form factor makes it easy to transport and assemble just about anywhere. With its pre-assembled, adjustable steel tripod, the NexStar 127SLT can be up and ready to use in a matter of minutes. Our SkyAlign alignment technology and the included StarPointer Finderscope with a red LED make aligning a breeze. Simply center any three bright objects in the eyepiece and the NexStar SLT aligns to the night sky, ready to locate thousands of objects. The NexStar 127SLT Computerized GoTo Telescope also includes a free download of our Starry Night Special Edition astronomy software for an interactive sky simulation.

The power of this computerized telescope allows you to view the details of the lunar surface, the rings of Saturn, the polar ice caps on Mars, the cloud belts on Jupiter, and a number of the Messier objects, such as the globular cluster in Hercules (M13) or the Great Nebula in Orion (M42). Explore some of the fainter Messier objects using the additional light-gathering capabilities of the 127SLT’s five-inch primary mirror.

Buy with confidence from the world’s #1 telescope brand, based in California since 1960. You’ll also receive a two-year warranty and unlimited access to technical support from our team of US-based experts.

5.0 out of 5 stars per principianti e amatori
Reviewed in Italy on September 8, 2020
Avevo letto critiche per via del treppiedi poco rigido, ed è così. Ma il prodotto va valutato nel complesso. Per questa prezzo credetemi che vi può regalare grosse emozioni. Se volete telescopi da professionisti il prezzo lievita in modo spropositato. Si comporta egregiamente soprattutto su visioni planetarie ed è molto portatile. Abbinato alla mia reflex sono riuscito a prendere dettagli entusiasmanti. Non è indicato per i deep space objects per via della ridotta luminosità e per la montatura alt-azimutale.
