Description

Designed to be an affordable entry-level to mid-level, computerized GoTo telescope, the Celestron NexStar SLT 114 Reflector is loaded with valuable design features. With pre-assembled, adjustable, stainless steel tripods, and quick-release fork arms and tubes, the NexStar SLT telescope can be set up in a matter of minutes - no tools required!


It'll also give you stunning views! You'll see details of the lunar surface, Venus and its phases, Mars resolved as an orange disc, Jupiter and four moons, Saturn with rings plainly visible, and much more!


Intelligent Design
Powered by 8 AA user-supplied batteries, an optional AC adapter, optional car-battery adapter, or powertank power source, the NexStar GOTO loves to travel. The internal battery compartment provides power to the high-precision servo motors for rigid, low-vibration performance while eliminating cord wrap issues associated with external battery packs.


With the NexStar's ergonomically engineered hand controller, the user is free to remove the hand control from its holder for remote use or leave it cradled for hands-free operation. With a touch of a button you can select the object catalog, change the slew speed, view fascinating information about an object, or simply find out whether a desired object is visible in the sky.

The Perfect Accessories

Customer Q & A

1 - 5 of 10
    1   2      

Q1: Will all the accessories (including the GPS Adapter) for the Nexstar 114SLT work on a Nexstar 114GT?

A: I do not have a lot of information on the new SLT's yet but the accessories will fit just fine.

Q2: How well does this scope track for purposes of astrophotography? Is it comparable (due to computer control) to the performance delivered by an equatorial mount?

A: Yes, though for extremely long term photography an equatorial is preferred, but this is great for an amateur.

Q3: Which model of softcase bag will fit this telescope and tripod?

A: At this time there is not a specific case made for this telescope. A good idea is to use a duffel bag lined with some form of cushioning. It is an inexpensive way to have a nice carrying case.

Q4: What is inside the box of Nexstar 114SLT?

A: Telescope, tripod, 25mm and 9mm eyepiece, hand controller, accessory plate, literally everything you need to use it right out of the box except the batteries.

Q5: I ordered the Zoom Eyepiece 8-24mm and the RS232 data cable. I did this even though I now have the Celestron StarSeeker 114mm model which looks just like the NexStar 114 SLT. Will these accessories work with the StarSeeker model?

A: Yes, both should work just fine in the StarSeeker.
