Surname 1 Name Tutor Course Date Telescope Paper: The Celestron NexStar 127 SLT Telescope Identification Ferron notes that there exist different types of telescopes including Celestron NexStar 127 SLT, Orion 8945 SkyQuest XT8 Classic Dobsonian and others (10). Considering these types, Celestron NexStar 127 SLT is regarded as the best one to newbie individuals in the astronomy field. Description and Functionality Celestron NexStar 127 SLT is offered on the market in three sections, which are later fixed together to make a complete telescope. These section, which have different functions include: i) The tripod: As Plotner notes, this section has three legs which are usually adjusted to the height of 6" to 8" inches each and spread apart to hold a tripod aluminum mounting tray (16). Three bolts are used to hold tripod legs firmly. This ensures that both the folk arm and the optical tube are not affected by both horizontal and downward movements that cause instability on the axes.

Surname 2 ii) The fork arm: Having properly fixed the tripod, fork arm is easily attached to the tripod aluminum mounting tray. This firmly holds the optical tube into place since it allows dovetail mounting bar to slide into the fork arm of the clamp. iii) Optical tube: The tube firmly holds in place other parts of star telescope including star diagonal, the star pointer finderscope, the eyepiece and the focuser knob.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
