I am a newbie to telescopes. I am looking for a computerised / GOTO, entry level scope for myself (and the kids - hence the GOTO function).
The two I am comparing are the MEADE STAR NAVIGATOR 130mm REFLECTOR vs CELESTRON NEXSTAR 130SLT.
Any simple, plain english feedback on either of these scopes and/or a comparison between them would be much appreciated?
I bought a celesrton about 2 years ago. My family has really enjoyed the ease of use with this telescope. We use the goto features all the time. Once the telescope is oriented to the sky ( which is done by finding any 3 bright objects in the night sky an entering the time where you are located) the remote gives you tons of options for celestial bodies in view, then it moves to whichever you select. Also, you can search for specific bodies by using the remote. Very user friendly interface. Over all, we have been very happy with our purchase.
