      I gave the 127SLT to my husband for a big birthday, nurturing our mutual interest in amateur astronomy. We needed something portable because we are New Yorkers on the go, working a lot in Uganda, where the night sky is impressive. I wanted something we could haul around easily but that still provides high quality viewing opportunities. It came extremely well recommended, including by Celestron technical staff, who heavily recommended this as the best amateur scope, advising among other things, that this model is a better deal (equally capable but cheaper) than the SkyProdigy and Nexstar 6SE models that I was also looking at. When I first told Robert at B&H what I wanted, he also raved that this is his favorite scope, plus consumer ratings show a model in the series as the top pick (and that's a reflector, while this is a Maksutov). Saving the money by going with the 127SLT allowed me to buy all the accessories we might need at this stage without breaking the bank and also keeping our first scope investment more modest. So far, our experience with it has been great. I was able to disassemble the mount from the tripod and pack it, along with the optical tube and some accessories with bubble wrap in a carry-on case and got it all the way to Uganda from NY unscathed! That's portable!, and the weight is very light, under 20 lbs, compared with the 30+ pounds of the other scopes I was interested in and that would have required two carry-on cases or an expensive suitcase, risky pack job and insurance to check into the airplane's hold. Assembling it was easy. We've taken it out every clear night over the past week and a half since my husband opened up his surprise gift. It's been a lot of fun to figure all this out and orient ourselves to the sky and to learn how to use a real telescope. It's amazing to have the motor and hand control that allows us to point and move the optical tube around with ease. We are also figuring out what all the different lenses do. The ones it comes with are good, and the 25mm is particularly important for finding things before getting more ambitious with stronger magnifications. The moon looks absolutely amazing. We also looked at Mars, but we couldn't see polar ice caps as others write that they have done fairly easily. It might be the time of year, but we are coming to understand what others write about - that this takes patience and practice, and it's not just about having the most powerful telescope. After having read others' reviews of instant gratification seeing details of Mars and Saturn on their first night out with the 127SLT, I have wondered if I should have gotten the 6SE for more money, dealing with the bigger portability challenges. But I re-researched it all and still feel very confident in the decision to go for the 127SLT, as, with lenses, it is just as powerful as the others and experiences less obstruction given how it's built. So, here are some of the challenges with it that we have to solve: 1) here in Uganda, we need to customize settings to use SkyAlign. We only tried that one night and failed, and we're pretty convinced it's because we are not putting in numbers correctly for our longitude, latitude and time zone, but we're aiming to get Celestron on Skype with us to talk us through it. 2) After we put some rechargeable batteries into the battery compartment (which are lasting a good long time), we had some trouble closing the compartment completely again. I'm sure we'll get the hang of this, but we actually tried pretty hard to do it without breaking anything, and it's still just slightly not fully clicked in. Will get some advice on that. 3) We don't consider 1 and 2 to be very pressing issues, as we assume they are easily solvable. The more substantive thing is 3) the tripod - it is decent, but when you use the motor, or you bump your eye against the eye piece, the image does wobble fairly easily. It settles quickly, but it's not like having a much heavier scope and tripod. We'll work on stabilizing this, but I think it's one of the factors in getting something so portable. I think it's true that the ease of use of this telescope, along with its high quality optics, make it much more likely that we'll actually use and enjoy it than if we got something much heavier and less portable. As for the database, we haven't used it yet, but in general, 4,000 objects is plenty to keep us busy for a good long time, while we learn what we are doing. If Celestron upped this to 10,000 or 40,000 like some other models, it would also be great, but we are also just into finding things ourselves, so, this is not a big issue for us. Overall, so far, I could really give this product a 5, but because of these minor things and because they don't offer a 4.5 rating, I chose 4. It's really great, and we will get better and better at what we're doing with it over time - it's perfect for our needs, and like so many others have said/written elsewhere, we can easily see why people say this is a scope that they will keep for a lifetime even if they invest in fancier, bigger things over time.

      Good beginer scope

      Use it for casual observing. GOTO feature is nice, right on the spot. Image quality lacks and images are very small. I guess that's what one gets when one goes cheap.

      Comments about Celestron NexStar 127SLT Computerized Telescope:

      I use it occasionally, as I am an amatuer. I was considering the next level up Nexstar 6se, but just couldn't justify the price due to not knowing how much it would actually get used. I decided on this Nexstar 127SLT instead. At about 2/3 the price its performance is everything I hoped it would be. I've only gotten to use it a few times so far, but I've had a blast. I've gotten to see Saturn and its rings, the Andromeda galaxy (small smudge), and tomorrow I will use it to see the lunar eclipse and Jupiter. I never would have found the galaxy and star clusters without the computer built in. The setup was a breeze and operation is simple. Highly recommend!

          Comments about Celestron NexStar 127SLT Computerized Telescope:

          The telescope came complete as advertised on the BH website and was simply amazingly fast to assemble and tear down. Because I live in the Cleveland, Ohio, area, it's been pretty snowy and cloudy, but I did get to see the moon in all its glory around twilight on a clear day (1-hour clear) and because it's Cleveland, it changed. This is mostly a spring, summer and fall climate for viewing the night sky but everything worked as stated in the description, and the power of it is pretty amazing. Going the extra inch diameter to a 5-inch scope will be worth it. I am looking forward to warmer nights as we move toward spring and clearer skies. I also tried it during the day for viewing across a valley from my house, and it was amazingly sharp and clear, even through a glass window. That's one of the reasons I chose the Celestron Nexstar 127 SLT because you can use it easily for viewing terrain or the skies. This was my Christmas gift and I spent about a month comparing prices, quality of scope, shipping, warranties and by the ease of moving around the web site, the choice was easy. BH photo&video was the top choice when it came to actually doing it. In addition, my several questions were answered via the chat page. The telescope arrived via UPS in four days with standard free shipping. Fantastic job. I like this telescope for intermediate users or beginners, such as myself, because of its overall versatility. I look forward to years of fun for the entire family. I give BH my highest recommendation.

          Comments about Celestron NexStar 127SLT Computerized Telescope:

          This scope is perfect for my application. It's 5" aperature does the job for my observing sessions. With it I've had great views of Saturn, Jupiter, globular clusters and Andromeda.

          The GOTO works fairly well, its accuracy is dependent upon just how well you do an alignment.

          The scope is lightweight and easy to take along. That was my main concern. If you do not extend the tripod's legs all the way, the scope is fairly stable. I do not recommend extending the legs completely. This will result in lots of shaking and poor damping, especially noticed during focusing.

          Pricewise, I feel its an exceptional value.

            It's my first telescope, and really liked it!'s Very powerful, I could see Saturn and Jupiter, which I had never seen antes.Das two lenses that come with it, the 25mm works best as a 09mm, despite the higher zoom, not is as clear as the 25mm.Pretendo buy additional kit lens Celestron, which will make my space exploration more interesting. Important to note that every time I turn on the telescope have to adjust my location and synchronize with some stars to make it work in automatic mode only realize it was hours and hours watching the sky after I finish using the telescope. It's very fun and interesting.

              I gave the 127SLT to my husband for a big birthday, nurturing our mutual interest in amateur astronomy. We needed something portable because we are New Yorkers on the go, working a lot in Uganda, where the night sky is impressive. I wanted something we could haul around easily but that still provides high quality viewing opportunities. It came extremely well recommended, including by Celestron technical staff, who heavily recommended this as the best amateur scope, advising among other things, that this model is a better deal (equally capable but cheaper) than the SkyProdigy and Nexstar 6SE models that I was also looking at.

Saving the money by going with the 127SLT allowed me to buy all the accessories we might need at this stage without breaking the bank and also keeping our first scope investment more modest. So far, our experience with it has been great. I was able to disassemble the mount from the tripod and pack it, along with the optical tube and some accessories with bubble wrap in a carry-on case and got it all the way to Uganda from NY unscathed!

                    Good crisp image, good focus behavior, fun to use. Batteries (eight AA) burn up fast; get the external power supply. Alignment is a bit time consuming. The hand-held controller takes some getting used to, and would benefit greatly from a redesign. No solar filter is currently made for the 127SLT. Once the scope is aligned you can choose an object from the menu and it goes there, at least close to it. I usually need to search around a little but not too much; it's allowed me to find objects I cannot find with my old fully manual 4" Newtonian, like M3 and M64 that have no close landmarks, and that alone makes this scope a worthwhile purchase, especially given the relatively low price.

                      Comments about Celestron NexStar 127SLT Computerized Telescope:

                      I just moved into a house in Queens, NYC which came with a patio facing South so I thought it might offer some good views of the Sky even in the glare of New York City. I searched the internet for the right scope for these circumstances and after a while I narrowed it down to this one as I though it was the best type of scope for city viewing of planets, double stars, and the brighter clusters and fuzzy things.

                      It exceeded my expectations! In fact it gave me the sharpest, most contrasty view of Saturn I have ever seen. The optics were superb for a scope at this price point. As I said the image comes through sharp with lots of contrast on the moon, planets, and stars, even under severe light pollution.

                      The Go-to works well, the only complaint that I have is that the control buttons on the remote are kind of rubbery and they wobble, I wish they had a more solid and firm feel. Sometimes I have to push them twice to get them to react, but all in all I am very happy with this scope and would recommend it.

                      I also purchased a Celestron 8-24 mm zoom eyepiece which works great with it. The eyepieces it comes with are fine though.

                        I am a beginner. I chose this scope because it meet my needs: easy to transport, easy to use, able to do some astro-photo in the future. It has met al expectations.
                        I strongly recommend it.

                          Currently look at bright stars & visible planets.
                          Saw Saturn at 500x(6mm plossi,2x barlow), ran into atmospheric blur/wobble. At such a high mag still bright enough, just got a bit cloudy. The tripod does its job, especially if you don't touch it at higher mags. Yeah, the starfinder beam is too bright for stars like Castor. Even with the light off the 'lens' doesn't do too well in the burbs of Saint Louis. Not sure why the backlashes aren't shipped adjusted.

                            Use it for casual observing. GOTO feature is nice, right on the spot. Image quality lacks and images are very small. I guess that's what one gets when one goes cheap.
