  • Description

    When you're ready to step up to the best, choose Celestron's largest Schmidt-Cassegrain optical tube, the C-14. Recognized as the cream of the crop for amateur astronomy and imaging for decades, the C-14 offers mind-blowing views of even the faintest deep space objects like galaxies and nebulae. Get ready to see it all with the ultimate optical tube.

    StarBright XLT coatings

    Inside the C-14 sturdy aluminum tube, you'll find that all optical components are coated with StarBright XLT coatings. This unique coating formula allows more light to pass through the system while minimizing internal reflections. That means you'll be able to resolve greater detail in celestial objects and capture better images when used for astrophotography.

    Ultimate imaging versatility

    In addition to providing stunning views through the eyepiece, the C-14 is an excellent choice for astrophotography. Unlike refractors, which can only achieve one focal ratio, the C-14 works in three focal ratios, making it ideal for imaging any target. The C-14, in its standard f/10 configuration, is the telescope of choice for the world's premier planetary imagers and researchers. You'll be able to capture Saturn's rings, Jupiter's Great Red Spot, and so much more.

    For deep sky objects, add a focal reducer (sold separately) to achieve f/7. This wider field is great for capturing nebulae and other wider objects. And if you want to capture whole regions of the night sky, remove the secondary mirror and attach a third-party lens assembly to image at f/2.2!

    The expert in Schmidt-Cassegrain production for more than 50 years, Celestron has perfected the design in the C-14. Experience for yourself why a Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain is the gold standard for amateur astronomy.
