Celestron C8 N Advanced Series Telescope 31061 Product Info

The optics of the Celestron C8 N Advanced Series Telescopes 31061 are manufactured to Celestron's uncompromising imagestandards. The C8-N uses diffraction-limited parabolic primary mirrors for razor sharp star images across a wide field of view.

Celestron C-8N Advanced Series Telescope 31061 is mounted on the very rigid CG-5 German equatorial mount. A counterweight, latitude scale, setting circles, and slow motion controls on both axes are standard, so you have a fully loaded telescope right from the start. These mounts are the most rigid and stable type in their price range. They feature precision gears for extremely smooth motion. The mount is supported by heavy duty tripod with 2" steel legs for extra stability and vibration free viewing.

CG-5 Mount - Precision engineered for stability.

Celestron new German Equatorial mount has precision worm gears on both axes for extremely smooth stability. The key element that makes this system the most stable in its class is the NEW heavy-duty tripod with larger and more substantial legs that offer excellent damping characteristics for more stable views. The CG-5 also has a convenient latitude scale for easier alignment and an optional polar finder scope for the ultimate in precision alignments.
