Celestron C6-SGT Schmidt-Cassegrain

The C6-SGT, 6-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope with XLT coatings is a member of Celestron's Advanced telescope series. Celestron Advanced scopes combine state-of-the-art technology, easy-to-use features and ready-to-use components to produce instruments of unparalleled quality and utility. The C6-SGT comes mounted on the CG-5 GT computerized equatorial mount that allows access to features like automatic star alignment capability and GoTo slewing to more than 40,000 objects. Equipped with high-speed motors and a hand controller, the C6-SGT allows you to slew your telescope remotely to desired objects quickly and accurately. No matter whether you're a beginner, an intermediate viewer, or an advanced amateur astronomer, this precision instrument will satisfy your needs both visually and photographically.

Celestron CG-5 EQ Mount

This new, German equatorial mount has precision worm gears on both axes for extremely smooth tracking motion. The new, heavy-duty tripod with larger and more substantial legs offer excellent damping characteristics for more stable views. In fact, the CG-5 is the most stable mount in its class. The CG-5 also has a convenient latitude scale for easier alignment, as well as an optional polar finder scope for the ultimate in precision alignments.

StarBright XLT Coatings
Celestron's XLT coating process uses state-of-the-art, thin-film, vacuum-deposition technology. To ensure consistent optical coatings of the highest quality, the process is tightly monitored and controlled by highly trained technicians. Prior to coating, each optical element is thoroughly cleaned and inspected to ensure proper adhesion of the films during the coating process. Materials used in our reflective and anti-reflective coatings, including aluminum, hafnium oxide, titanium dioxide, silicon dioxide, and magnesium fluoride are the purest available, exceeding 99.99 percent. The result is image clarity so stunning, it must be seen to be believed.

Comments about Celestron Advanced Series C6-SGT Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope:

I'm just amazed at the quality of this scope! Can't wait to get my camera hooked up on it and start getting some great pics of the planets! Of course it's been cloudy every night since it arrived. Sigh...

Only cons are 1. it's heavy! really heavy! and 2. I was sent a used scope. It all checks out OK, so I'm not too worried, but I paid full price for a new scope so I'm a little ticked about that.
