Designed to be an affordable entry level to mid-level computerized GoTo telescope, the NexStar SLT refractors, reflectors, and Maks are available in the most popular sizes and are loaded with valuable design features. With preassembled, adjustable stainless steel tripods, and quick release fork arms and tubes, NexStar SLT telescopes can be set up in a matter of minutes – with no tools required! You can see details of the lunar surface, Venus and its phases, polar caps on Mars, Jupiter and its four moons, Saturn with its rings plainly visible and much more! Most NexStar SLT’s can also be used as a land-based spotting telescope.
The T-Adapter and T-Ring, given to me by my son [Michael], work with this scope as well.
The 127 SLT has a longer focal length–1500mm versus 1250mm and it can also be used as a land-based spotting telescope.
Although I can buy it for less than the C5, it and all other photographic equipment are on hold until after transportation is resolved.
