q&a

The NexStar GT series of Telescopes shares a common heritage in features and function. Each NexStar telescope includes the latest state-of-the-art computerized Go To technology, amazingly easy-to-use features and ready-to-use components. After the computer guides you through a simple set up, each Celestron Nex Star Telescope will point itself to the object you choose from its stored database of astronomical objects without referring to star charts! To assist in the star alignment, the NexStar uses a lightweight Star Pointer Finder scope. The Star Pointer is the quickest and easiest way to point your telescope exactly to the desired object in the sky. It's like having a laser pointer that you can shine directly onto the night sky. NexStar's ergonomically designed hand control allows 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 know if a desired object is visible in the sky. The NexStar GT's deluxe features combine with Celestron's uncompromising optical standards to give amateur astronomers one of the most sophisticated and easy to use telescopes available on the market today.
