What's Included In This Package


Celestron's C5, 127mm spotting scope is so good that NASA chose it for many space shuttle missions! And here on Earth, it is a 5-inch (127mm) 1,250mm f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain optical system that's as suited to the outdoors as it is to outer space.

The Celestron C5 127mm Spotter is an ideal choice for the serious bird watcher, nature lover, or anyone who enjoys beautiful views, whether from home or in the field. At just 6 pounds in weight and 11 inches in length, this spotting scope is a completely portable visual and photographic instrument that performs well in any viewing location. And you can expand its capabilities with a wide variety of optional accessories.

Its 5-inch aperture allows it to outperform smaller-aperture spotting scopes easily. Offering more than 4.5 times the light-gathering ability of a 60mm spotting scope and nearly 2.5 times that of an 80mm scope, Celestron's C5 is the clear choice when raw power and brilliant, crisp views are required.
The C5 spotting scope is a wonderfully versatile instrument, and its near focus of approximately 20 feet allows you to observe plant life, wildlife, birds, or insects with ease. At the same time, the C5 can be used as an astronomical telescope. It even transforms into a high-performance, 1,250mm, f/10, telephoto lens.

Photography couldn't be easier, because the C5 was designed to be fully camera-adaptable. To take professional-quality shots with the C5, just attach an optional T-adapter and T-ring for your 35mm SLR camera to the back of the scope, and you're ready to shoot.


The C5 comes in its own soft-sided carrying case. A tripod adapter block on the C5's tube makes easy work of tripod mounting for viewing or photography.



Heavy duty tripod with steel legs provides a stable platform for binoculars, small telescope tubes, spotting scopes, etc. Same tripod as supplied with Astromaster AZ telescopes. Lowest hight is 24" and extends to 41".
