CELESTRON NEXSTAR 127 SLT Telescope Review

Celestron NexStar 127 SLT

There are few affordable catadioptric telescopes on offer which meet all user requirements. The Celestron NexStar 127 SLT is the exception to this rule. This telescope is the bigger brother of the NexStar 90 SLT. These two telescopes roughly have the same properties. The NexStar 127, however, is just a bit bigger and better in everything. The mirror of the Nexstar 127 SLT has a 127mm diameter which catches approximately 40% more light than the 90mm mirror of its younger brother. This difference is especially noticeable when viewing deep-sky objects. The objects will appear a lot clearer and more detailed due to the high light-gathering power of this telescope.
