|Description:||Optics of these heavy-duty telescopes are manufactured to Celestron 's uncompromising standards. The star images are classic textbook Airy disks.|
These telescopes are mounted on very rigid German equatorial mounts. 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 C150-HD and G8-N use a state-of-the-art optical design incorporating an auxiliary correction lens to reduce aberrations, flatten the field and allow the tube length to be shortened -- and it is superior to most fast parabolas.
