The NexStar 130 SLT, like the other models in the SLT Series, comes with a fully computerized hand control that gives you the ability to automatically slew to any of its 4,000+ objects, including over 600 galaxies, 300 clusters and dozens of beautiful binary stars. With its pre-assembled, adjustable steel tripod, quick release fork arm mount, and accessory tray, the NexStar 130 SLT can be up and ready to use in a matter of minutes with no tools needed. The SkyAlign alignment technology and the included StarPointer Finderscope with a red LED, makes aligning a breeze. View the details of the lunar surface, the rings of Saturn, the polar ice caps on Mars, the cloud belts on Jupiter or a number of the Messier objects using the additional light-gathering capabilities of the 130 SLT's 5" primary mirror. Because of the design, the mirror gives fully color-corrected views that are best suited for astronomical use.
