Celestron NexStar 102SLT Computerized Telescope

The popularity of Celestron's previous short tube refractor models inspired them to go a step further with the introduction of the Celestron NexStar 102SLT. You'll find that astronomical viewing is a delight with this large, powerful 4" telescope. The 102SLT offers a 63% increase in image brightness over 80 mm SLT models making this telescope ideal for observing the planets. This Celestron 102SLT short-tube telescope with a fast f/5 optical system gives images that are bright and crisp. And the Celestron 102SLT, like the other models in the SLT Series, comes with a fully computerized hand control with a database of over 4,000 celestial objects! The Celestron 102 SLT has a pre-assembled, adjustable steel tripod, the NexStar 102 SLT can be up and ready to use in a matter of minutes.

The new SkyAlign alignment technology and the included StarPointer Finderscope with a red LED makes aligning a breeze. Because of its wide 1.7° field of view, the Celestron NexStar 102SLT is optimal for scanning large areas of the sky and for superb terrestrial (land) viewing. A wonderful entry to mid-level astronomical viewing, with the use of an optional erect-image diagonal, the 102SLT can also be used as a land-based spotting telescope.
