Celestron Nexstar 102 SLT Review

If you are looking for a beginner's telescope the Celestron Nexstar 102 SLT is a good choice. This refractor telescope was given a highly commended 91% by the Sky at Night Magazine in a test of six beginner telescopes.

It is a bit pricey but comes with a computerised mount containing a database of 4,000 objects to discover. It is portable and easy to put together which are so important for a beginner's telescope (See 5 Things you Need to Know Before Buying a Beginner's Astronomy Telescope). The optics are very good for a beginner scope and it comes with a red dot finderscope.

The video by orangetubedotnet below demonstrates how to set up the telescope and how to work the handset. The video gives you a good idea of the size and portability of this nice beginner telescope.

Here is a link to the telescope on Amazon which is currently discounted at 11%
