Intelligent Design
Powered by 8 AA (user supplied) batteries or an optional AC adapter (#18778), these NexStar GoTos love 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 designed hand control, 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.

Celestron’s Revolutionary SkyAlign
Using Celestron’s patented SkyAlign (patent pending), simply input the date, time and location into the hand control then slew the telescope to any three bright celestial objects in the sky. You do not need to know the names of the stars – you can even pick the Moon or bright planets!

    • Is this still available? If so, what is the available inventory,msrp and the lead time shipping to zipcode 94965

      Thank you for visiting! We're not sure why the web site indicated there was 1 item available in stock. Our inventory level correctly shows none in stock through the admin portal. We apologize for the inconvenience and have reported the issue to the platform's technical support department. Celestron is backordered through September/October, so we will not be able to restock before then. Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

    • Can we order and pick up a Celestron Next Star 127? Do you have a Power Seeker 127 EQ?

      We finally have more telescopes in stock! We do have the PowerSeeker 127EQ (21049) in stock now, and we have a NexStar 102SLT Computerized (22096) coming in soon. Let us know if we can help.
