Celestron NexStar 127 Astro Phone Photography Kit
The Celestron NexStar 127 Astro Phone Photography Kit consists of the Celestron NexStar 127SLT Computerized Telescope, NexYZ 3-Axis Universal Smartphone Adapter, Moon Filter Set - 1.25”, PowerTank Lithium LT and the SkyMaps Star Charts & Planisphere (Northern) book.
Celestron NexStar 127SLT Computerized Telescope
The NexStar 127SLT Computerized Telescope is the perfect setup for an amateur astronomer or anyone looking to start their journey into astronomy. The telescope has been constructed from high-quality optics and boasts a user-friendly, computerized interface along with a sturdy single fork arm mount.
The 127SLT is capable of revealing details on the surface of the Moon, the phases of Venus, the polar caps on Mars, Jupiter and its four moons, and Saturn with its rings plainly visible. It is also possible to use it as a land-based spotting telescope for daytime and wildlife observations.
The 127SLT comes with everything you need to start your astronomy journey right away. The telescope can track objects as they move through the night sky thanks to it’s single fork arm altazimuth mount which sits on a pre-assembled, adjustable steel tripod. The telescope also comes with the NexStar+ computerized hand control, a 127mm Maksutov-Cassegrain optical tube, as well as accessories.
Included in the kit is the NexStar+ Hand Control. This is a computerized controller that allows you to automatically hone in on any of 40,000 celestial objects with the simple push of a button. More than 600 galaxies, 300 clusters and dozens of beautiful binary stars are included in it’s database so you can easily pinpoint your desired object.
There is also a SkyTour feature that will produce a list of the best celestial objects that are currently visible all based on your exact time and location.
The 127SLT is easy to set up and use thanks to the SkyAlign technology. Simply point the scope at any three bright objects in the sky and it will triangulate its position of all other objects in the sky automatically.
The telescope is powered by 8 AA batteries (not included) or by a PowerTank portable battery (sold separately) so that you can use it anywhere. 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.
Included with the telescope is a StarPointer red dot finderscope that allows you to quickly centre an object, a star diagonal that provides a right-side-up view and a more comfortable viewing angle when looking up at the sky, as well as two eyepieces (25mm and 9mm). The two eyepieces are different magnifications for low- or high-powered observing.
NexYZ 3-Axis Universal Smartphone Adapter
The NexYZ 3-Axis Universal Smartphone Adapter is the perfect tool for digiscoping with a wide range of equipment. Unique to Celestron, this adapter’s position can be adjusted on three-axis for the most precise alignment. For use on telescopes, spotting scopes, binoculars, monoculars and microscopes. Compatible with any eyepiece that ranges from 35mm to 60mm in diameter, including telescopes with a 1.25” or 2” eyepiece. It is the complete digiscoping solution for every application.
Unique to Celestron the NexYZ can be adjusted on three different axis points. Centre the smartphone camera over the eyepiece with the X and Y knobs until the entire field of view is in shot, then adjust the Z axis to get the perfect shot.
Celestron Moon Filter Set - 1.25”
This filter set from Celestron contains all you will need to view the Moon during its various phases. One of the most common objects to view in the sky for seasoned and amateur astronomers alike due to its proximity and geographical features, observe the Moon with reduced brightness and clarity even in light-polluted areas.
Included in this kit are three Neutral Density (ND) filters that dim the entire visual spectrum from 400-700nm equally. The three filters allow you to select the best light transmission for the lunar cycle. The ND96-0.9 filter transmits 13% of the incoming light, the ND96-0.6 transmits 25% and the ND96-0.3 transmits 50%. None of these ND filters will shift the colour of the Moon, they will only reduce lunar brightness and help with eye fatigue.
Celestron PowerTank Lithium LT
The PowerTank Lithium LT battery is the best battery on the market for powering telescopes. Designed by astronomers for astronomers, this 12-volt battery will regulate voltage output to ensure a steady stream of power, protecting the telescope’s delicate engineering.
Celestron SkyMaps Star Charts & Planisphere (Northern)
The Celestron SkyMaps Star Charts & Planisphere allows you to learn the night skies of the Northern Hemisphere. Contains a collection of seasonal star charts with a glow-in-the-dark luminous star finder, a rotatable star wheel that can be aligned with any date and time (past, present & future), resulting in a display of the night sky for that period of time.

- Never look directly at the Sun with the naked eye or with an optic (unless you have the proper solar filter). Permanent and irreversible eye damage may result.
- Never use your optic to project an image of the Sun onto any surface. Internal heat build-up can damage the optic and any accessories attached to it.
- Never leave your optic unsupervised. Make sure an adult who is familiar with the correct operating procedures is with your optic at all times, especially when children are present.
