We have a quantity of CelestronSLT 60 telescopes, which we are selling through at £120 a great saving over the RRP. Not only is it a great way to gain entry into the ‘GOTO‘ astro market for someone with a fancy to look up at the heavens, but it is also makes for a great budget way to ‘GOTO‘ some smaller existing astro scopes. So if you have purchased a smallish astroscope and have never gotten to grips with the setting up of the equatorial mount, now may be the time to dig it out, dust it off and give it some new legs !
Simple to align the SLT mount guides you effortlessly around the night sky without you needing any prior knowledge of what or where, no charts or maps needed. If you need to know more or want to check if your existing scope will fit on give me a call.
The Spring promotional price on NexstarSE’shas now come to an end but it doesn’t seem to have dampened demand for what is our best selling range of ‘GOTO‘ scopes. We currently have stock of the full range although we are told that some are out and in short supply at the importers and more stock is not due in from the US until mid September. So if you are in the market grab one before they are gone. We are still offering the mains power supply for free along with a set of batteries to get you up and running clear skies allowing !
