Celestron C6-A-XLT Optical Tube Assembly OTA Telescope w/ StarBright XLT Coatings for CG-5 Mount Product Info

Celestron C6A is 6.0"/150mm Aluminum Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope Optical Tube Assembly. The Celestron C6-A XLT OTA Telescope has a 16" long imagealuminum optical tube that weighs only 10 lbs., making it easy to transport. CelestronC6A Telescope features a 6" aperture, a 1500 mm focal length, and a focal ratio of f/10. StarBright XLT coatings are standard for Celestron C6-A. These include high reflectivity 5-layer enhanced aluminum mirror coatings, plus magnesium fluoride antireflection coatings on both sides of the Schmidt corrector lens. These telescopes feature multicoatings that visibly increase contrast on subtle lunar, planetary, and nebula details when compared with a scope with standard coatings. They also give you higher light transmission for brighter deep space images and shorter exposure times during photography. The C-6A 's optics are hand-figured. Hand figuring the optical system is a complex optical procedure done on a commercial basis only by Celestron.

The optics of Celestron C-6-A XLT OTA Telescopes are Fastar Compatible. This special optical system allows CCD imaging at an incredibly fast f/1.9 focal ratio. Celestron C-6-A Telescopes come with a 6 x 30mm straight-through achromatic finderscope and mounting bracket. Also standard equipment for Celestron Telescopes is a removable 1.25" visual back that holds visual accessories such as a star diagonal, tele-extender, etc. A 1.25" prism type star diagonal is also standard, as is a 1.25" 25mm Plössl eyepiece. C6-A Telescopes are equipped with a dovetail slide bar for mounting on a Celestron CG 5 or CG5 Computerized German equatorial mount. Optional split mounting rings are also available to put the tube on another mount of the buyer's choosing. Dust covers for the optics complete the supplied accessories for this OTA telescope.

With StarBright XLT Optical System design you'll see the light. One of the most important factors in the evaluation of a Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope 's optical system performance is its transmission - the percentage of incoming light that reaches the focal plane. The design of the XLT System accomplishes two crucial objectives: Develop a coating system that is optimized for visual use and for CCD/Photographic imaging.
