NexStar 127SLT Computerized Telescope
- Product Review (submitted on August 1, 2012):
I have got beautiful, crisp visuals from this scope using my 10mm Baader eyepiece. Star clusters, double stars...Lots of things show up well in this scope and the 5 inch aperture is not like what a 10 or 12 inch dob can offer in terms of light gathering ability and giving you a large image of a planet or whatever your observing but there are some up sides to using a scope like this.
1. Its lighter than larger scopes and very transportable.
2. Larger scopes and faster f # or f ratio may need collimation often, this scope is SOLID! You may never need to adjust the factory collimation on this one.
3. GOTO is handy, but learning the bright stars in the sky and constellations is still a necessity....A Celestron SkyScout can aid in learning the sky. There is even a sync cable that can hook up from this scope to a Celestron SkyScout and it fills in the GPS, time and location questions for you.
