Please note: Product is now a 102mm Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope, not the refractor which is shown in the picture and description.

The popularity of our previous short tube refractor models inspired us 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 80mm models. This short-tube telescope with a fast f/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 optimal for scanning large areas of the sky and for superb 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.

Celestron NEXSTAR 102 SLT Telescope
Tuesday, 22 September 2020  | 

This is a great little scope for its size. Optics are of the highest quality. Very light and portable, easy to set up and use. Planetary details are easily made out with good seeing contitions, Mars polar cap is very distinct when used with a blue filter, some surface detail is also visible. I would highly recommend this scope for a beginner. The only down side is that you will need a dew shield, as the scope isn't supplied with one. I would also recommend getting a power tank, as this scope eats batteries.
All in all, A 5 star product from a 5 star company.
