About this item

The NexStar 130 SLT has 30% more light-gathering power than our 114mm telescope and 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.


The NexStar 130 SLT has a pre-assembled, adjustable steel tripod and can be up and ready to use in a matter of minutes.  Our new SkyAlign 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, or the Great Nebula in Orion.  Begin to explore some of the fainter Messier objects using the additional light-gathering capabilities of the NexStar 130 SLT’s 5" primary mirror.  The NexStar 130 SLT Newtonian design is best suited for astronomical use because the mirror gives fully color-corrected views.
