The NexStar 114 SLT has over twice the light-gathering power of an 80 mm telescope!  And the 114 SLT, like the other models in the SLT Series, comes with a fully computerized hand control with a database of over 4,000 celestial objects!  With its pre-assembled, adjustable steel tripod, the NexStar 114 SLT can be up and ready to use in a matter of minutes.  Our new SkyAlign alignment technology and the included StarPointer Finderscope with a red LED, makes aligning a breeze.

Compact and lightweight in design, this scope can produce images bright enough to reveal the polar ice caps on Mars or the cloud belts on Jupiter!  View the details of the lunar surface or the rings of Saturn, which are clearly visible with this telescope.  With the extra light gathering capability of the 114 SLT, a number of the Messier objects such as the globular cluster in Hercules (M13), or the Great Nebula in Orion (M42) are available to you. Begin to explore some of the fainter Messier objects using the additional light-gathering capabilities of the 114 SLT’s 4-1/2" primary mirror.

Because of the Newtonian design, the mirror gives fully color-corrected views that are best suited for astronomical use.
