Nextstar 127SLT Maksutov-Cassegrain

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on April 14, 2013
This Scope has excellent optics. The tripod is shaky but it may be reduced with the anti-vibration pads. I would recommend this scope to any newcomer and Amateur and it is lite so you could take it anywhere. I am surprised on the Quality of the optics. The stars are like pin-points and the planets focus superbly. Excellent Scope for the money.
Pros: Lite-Weight, Excellent views, Pin Point Stars, Nice goto
Cons: Shaky Tripod, No Case, ...
Would recommend: Yes

great product unless you have a question

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on March 27, 2012
Do not attempt to get the manufacturer to help. They are in business only because their product is so wonderful.
Pros: wonderful telescope. I get a new thrill just about every time I use it.
Cons: A little difficult to get the computer star finder to work. No help from the factory (beyond rude...spent nearly two hours on hold and still got nothing but nasty E-mail comments. Even the distributer had no idea what the problem was. Took a while but now works beautifully....

I got this telescope for my husband for Christmas and he absolutely loves it. Every night he goes out on the lanai to observe & is so excited over the ability of the telescope to track and find the galaxies. He can see the red spot on Jupiter. Absolutely love this.
Pros: Very user friendly, lots of room for growth, consistancy is amazing. ...

Quality Scope for the price

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on December 15, 2011
Great scope for the price. This is a 127mm Maksutov Design with great optics. Colours are APO like. I can use on planetary up to 250X magnification without loss of details. The only issue is the mount seem to be a bit fragile to carry this big sized OTA. But for visual use it will be more than sufficient.
Pros: Excellent optics
Cons: Bad Mount...

It Works

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on May 3, 2010
I am a telemetry engineer and have a lot of experience with tracking antennas. I found the Celestron sky align and tracking to be extreamly poor. It is not usable. It can only get you within the general vicinity of an object +/- 10degrees. So you better have your finder scope very well aligned and know exactly what your looking at if you expect to put an object into your field of view. We had to use my sons iTouch app to find all but the most obvious objects.
Pros: Good for the Price
Cons: Sky Align is very poor...
Would recommend: Yes
