    Celestron NexStar 102 SLT Refractor Telescope
    Designed to be an affordable entry-level to mid-level, computerized GOTO telescope, the Celestron NexStar SLT 102 Refractor is loaded with precious design features. With pre-assembled, changeable stainless steel tripods and quick-release fork arms and tubes, the NexStar 102 SLT telescope can be set up in a matter of minutes. You can see details of the lunar surface, Venus and its phases, Mars resolved as an orange disc, Jupiter and its four moons, Saturn with its rings plainly visible and much more. Most NexStar SLTs can also be used as a land-based spotting telescope.

    Powered by 8 AA user supplied batteries, an optional AC adapter, optional car-battery adapter, or power tank power source, these NexStar GOTO's love 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.

    The popularity of previous short tube Celestron NexStar refractor models inspired to go a step further with the introduction of our NexStar 102 SLT. You'll find that astronomical viewing is a delight with this large, powerful 4" telescope. The 102 SLT offers a 63% increase in image brightness over 80 mm models. This short-tube telescope with a fast f/6.5 optical system gives images that are bright and crisp. And the 102 SLT, like the other models in the SLT Series, comes with a fully computerized hand control with a database of over 4,000 celestial objects. With its pre-assembled, adjustable steel tripod, the NexStar 102 SLT can be up and ready to use in a matter of minutes. Our 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 NexStar 102 SLT is most favorable for scanning large areas of the sky and for outstanding terrestrial (land) viewing. A wonderful entry to mid-level astronomical scope, with the use of an optional erect image diagonal, the 102 SLT can also be used as a land-based spotting telescope.
