  • Wonderful Intermediate Telescope
    Verified Purchase

    I ordered the Celestron NexStar 130 SLT Goto Telescope from Overstock and it was shipped directly from Celestron. It arrived in record time for free shipping. The NexStar 130 SLT telescope worked better than I expected. The goto functions are easy to use for anyone who can use most electronic gadgets today. The included 1.25 inch eye pieces are of good quality for beginner to intermediate astronomers. I really like this telescope because you can use various 2 inch eye pieces which is unheard of for a telescope in this price range. I recommend this telescope to anyone who is interested in astronomy!

  • good wide field scope
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this scope to replace my 30 year old Astroscan. I own a C8 and a 12 inch dob and needed a smaller scope for everyday use. 1. Tripod: Not weak and is reasonably steady. Would benefit by attaching a 2 lb. bag of sand to the tripods center to dampen vibrations even more. Has a built in level which is very important for alignment 2. Finder: Red dot finder works OK but suffers the same as all red dot finders. You have to look thru at the exact same angle each time or you will be mislead. I replaced it with a Telrad. 3. Optics: Almost perfect collimation out of the box. Primary and secondary are good quality. No aberrations noted in view 4. Nextar System: I did a 3-star alignment with only the 25mm eyepiece. No need to know what stars you are using, the system figures it out. After alignment, I asked it to find Saturn and it was in the field of view! Not bad at all. 5. Eyepieces: The 9mm was not bad at all. View was sharp for about 90% of the field, slight coma at edges. Pretty good in a f/5 scope. The 25mm on the other hand is disappointing. Severe coma at the edges and the image was "soft" in the outer 50%. I threw it in a junk drawer and used my 27mm EF for low power views. Conclusion: a pretty good scope for the money. I do not like the plastic dovetail for the optics(which is custom sized) or the plastic finder base. The finder got replaced and only time will tell if the rest holds together. I recommend this to beginners and more experienced users
