Product Description

Celestron NexStar 102 SLT Computerized Refractor Telescope

 

Designed to be an affordable entry-level to mid-level, computerized GOTO telescope, the Celestron NexStar 102 SLT Refractor is loaded with valuable design features. With pre-assembled, adjustable stainless steel tripods, and quick-release fork arms and tubes, the NexStar SLT telescope can be set up in a matter of minutes - no tools required! It'll also give you stunning views! You'll see details of the lunar surface, Venus, Mars as an orange disc, Jupiter and moons, Saturn with rings, and much more! And the NexStar 102 SLT can be used as a land-based spotting scope, as well. Intelligent Design Powered by 8 AA user-supplied batteries, an optional AC adapter, optional car-battery adapter, or powertank power source, the NexStar GOTO loves to travel. The internal battery compartment provides power to the high-precision servo motors for rigid low-vibration performance while eliminating cord wrap issues associated with external battery packs. With the NexStar's ergonomically engineered hand controller, the user is free to remove the hand control from its holder for remote use or leave it cradled for hands-free operation. With a touch of a button, you can select the object catalog, change the slew speed, view fascinating information about an object, or simply find out whether a desired object is visible in the sky. Celestron's Revolutionary SkyAlign Using Celestron's patented SkyAlign, simply input the date, time, and location into the hand control then slew the telescope to any three bright celestial objects in the sky. And that's it - alignment so easy it's hard to believe!
