Aperture is not lens focal length.

You already told me that. I was asking for the aperture of the scope (diameter of the opening of the main tube)

Ehh, I'll have to measure it, or look it up in one of the manuals I have.
I think 100 mm is too much for the main tube. I say 75mm

it's probably the number after the name of the telescope. If it's around 100 it's in mm, if it's like 3 - 6 it's inches, unless it's just Celestron that does that.

For example, the two telescopes I had, one was like a NexStar 117 (mm)
The one I have now is an NexStar 6 SE (in)
