Celestron C8-A XLT SCT Optical Tubes

$1,499.00 AUD

Back in the 1970s Celestron made its mark on the astronomy market with the release of its legendary C8 – 8″ Schmidt Cassegrain. Its introduction saw, for the first time, a large aperture, compact telescope design with superior optical quality at an accessible price. To this day the Celestron C8 Schmidt Cassegrain remains a popular choice because of its excellent versatility. This 8” f/10 optical tube assembly is a descendant of the original revolutionary Celestron C8 – there have been enhancements over the years such as the development of Celestron’s StarBright XLT coatings. Together with the use of high transmission water white float glass in the corrector plate, the result is markedly improved light transmission.
