BH #CEN127SLT • MFR #22097
Celestron NexStar 127SLT 127mm f/12 Maksutov-Cassegrain GoTo Telescope
Key Features
  • 127mm Maksutov-Cassegrain OTA
  • 1500mm Focal Length, f/12 Focal Ratio
  • Single-Arm Motorized Alt-Az Mount
  • NexStar Computer Hand Controller
Designed as an entry- to mid-level astronomical observation platform, the Celestron NexStar 127SLT 127mm f/12 Maksutov-Cassegrain GoTo Telescope gives users the ability to make detailed observations of the Moon, with the ability to easily see planets and reach outside the solar system to resolve distant objects like galaxies, nebulae, and binary or variable stars. The compact and powerful Maksutov-Cassegrain design corrects off-axis aberrations like comas and chromatic aberrations to produce images with true color rendition through the use of a front corrector plate with a convex meniscus lens, which not only eliminates the need for periodic collimation, but by the nature of the lens requires a smaller secondary mirror to limit obstruction and increase contrast.

Would this scope work well for astrophotography? What else would I need to buy to make work with Sony E mount
Asked by: Matthew
The NexStar 127SLT Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope was not designed for deep-space astrophotography, as a German Equatorial mount with a clock drive is required. However, the telescope is better suited for simple digiscoping of bright objects such as the moon and brighter planets.

Will a Cell phone hook up to it for pictures?
Asked by: Mickey
Yes, one can connect a smartphone to the Celestron NexStar 127SLT 127mm f/12 Maksutov-Cassegrain GoTo Telescope with an adapter. A very good option would be the Celestron NexYZ DX 3-Axis Smartphone Digiscoping Kit, BH #CENEXYZDXK (https://bhpho.to/3EHROPn).

question

Who uses it for photography thats what I am looking for I will be mounting a Nikon D700 and am looking for clean crisp photos?
Asked by: Anonymous
This scope would be good for taking a clear photos. The mount takes into effect, but that's if you are really trying to get more advanced. I would start with this first for shooting photos. You would need 2 adapters to attach your Nikon D700 Camera onto. The first would be the Celestron-SLR (35mm OR Digital) Camera Adapter. Website link: <a href= http://bhpho.to/1lwAhIO target= _blank >http://bhpho.to/1lwAhIO</a>Then you would need a T-Ring which would adapt your Nikon D700 onto the T-Adapter. Vello Lens Mount Adapter-T-Mount Lens to Nikon F Mount Camera would be perfect. Website link: <a href= http://bhpho.to/1d8lKOS target= _blank >http://bhpho.to/1d8lKOS</a>

Does this telescope have large asteroids (Ceres, Vesta etc.) in it's database?
Asked by: Bryan
No, asteroids are not featured in the NexStar hand controllers database; however, you can manually enter in an asteroid's RA and DEC coordinates to command the telescope to slew to an asteroid. You can also add the SkyPortal WiFi Module and using the free planetarium app, SkyPortal, command the telescope slew to asteroids in its database. Sincerely, Garrett at Celestron
