    The popularity of Celestron NexStar 114 models boosted the birth of its big brother telescope - the Nexstar 130 SLT. The Nexstar 130 SLT has 30% more light-gathering power than the 114mm predecessor.

    Like the other SLT telescope series, the 130 SLT comes with a fully computerised hand control. This gives you the ability to automatically slew to any of its objects, which includes over 600 galaxies, 300 clusters and dozens of beautiful binary stars. The Newtonian design provides fully colour-corrected views that are best suited for astronomical use, and its strong and convenient steel tripod allows the NexStar 130 SLT to be up and ready to use for your celestial adventurers in a matter of minutes!
