We are delighted to announce some new additions to Celestron’s highly popular, and well regarded, NexStar SLT and Astro Fi range of telescopes in the form of 5″ and 6″ Schmidt Cassegrain (SCT) models.
Advanced Technology: Each telescope includes the following features
- Celestron’s Starbright XLT coatings
- Can be used with Celestron’s advanced and powerful CPWI telescope control software
- Easy set up with Celestron’s Sky Align technology
- Starry Night Astronomy software download to find out what is up in the sky
Versatile Instrument: SCT’s are often considered to be versatile telescopes. They are ideal for viewing Solar system objects as well as deep-sky objects too. Their thin corrector plates helps with a quick cool down time, and also contributes to a lower telescope weight meaning that it is easier to transport. A wide range of optional accessories, such as Celestron’s F6.3 focal reducer to give a wider field of view, can also be used. The 5″ and 6″ SCT SLT models are compatible with the SkyPortal WiFi Module so the telescope can be controlled via your smart mobile device; The Astro Fi 6″ SCT has this WiFi capability already built in to its mount.
All models come with a sturdy but lightweight tripod, red dot finderscope, diagonal, eyepieces to get you started, and a full instruction user manual.
