Legacy Reviewer's Review of Celestron Advanced C6-S Telescope 11078

The telescope was well packed and delivered with no damage. Assembly was straight forward. The fit and finish of the C6S is outstanding. It is solid as a tank.

The telescope is lightweight and compact. The CG5 mount is heavy and clumbersion and definitely a gross overkill for the scope.


Star tests. My C6S arrived collimated. The inside and outside focus are essentially indentical. Stars at focus show an airy disk. Compared to my other scope, a Meade 2045SCT, The C5S images of planets, the moon, and Orion Nebula are both larger and have far more detail.




Pros: Optics, Price, Value
Cons: CG5 Mount is a very heavy overkill
