Let us start with the proverbial heart of any telescope.. It is optics. Celestron invented the Schmidt-Cassegrain manufacturing procedure and was perfecting it since 1960. The Evolution comes with their modern diffraction- restricted optics with patented Starbright XLT coatings (seriously, what an amazing difference this makes!), Celestron's superior smooth bearing concentrate, intended to eliminate image shift, and do not get me started with the inclusion of FASTAR Optics capability, where, with an optional accessory, you may be able to adapt this telescope to shoot deep sky pictures in mere seconds at f/2! but, you'll quickly forget all this the 1st time you look at the Moon, Saturn or the Great Globular Cluster in Hercules with this amazing telescope; Celestron has done as most of the hard work as possible so you may be able to just sit back and enjoy the spectacular view! The level of integration, sophistication, detail, fun, ease-of-use and info the Nexstar Evolution telescope & SkyPortal app offers is flatly unprecedented. It's just a delight to use, if I do a fast set-up to show the kids Saturn, or I'm putting it through its paces on a night of observing. I greatly recommend the Celestron Evolution telescopes to beginners and seasoned amateur astronomers alike. Using one sure put a smile on my face, and I work with telescopes every day! I bet a NexStar Evolution will put a smile on your face, too.

Celestrons signature orange-tube telescope combines advanced features and excellent optics in one easy-to-use system, the NeXStar 5SE. Its the perfect choice for your 1st serious telescope, offering striking views at an economical price. In the 1970s, Celestrons Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes brought the hobby of astronomy to the masses and established Celestron as the worlds premier telescope maker. Our founder, Tom Johnson, invented Celestrons proprietary technique of producing Schmidt corrector plates for superior views and maximum portability. Johnson believed in creating high-quality optical instruments at an cheap price, and inspired a generation of amateur astronomers. Four decades afterward, weve improved upon this design by adding cutting-edge features, while staying true to our founders intention. View the Universes Most remarkable Celestial Objects The 5SEs five-inch main mirror packs enough light-gathering capability to watch the best that the solar system has to offer: Saturns rings, the cloud bands on Jupiter, and geographic features on the surface of the Moon. When it comes to deep sky objects, take your 5SE to a black-sky site and youll see hundreds of pinpoint stars in the Hercules Globular Cluster, the spiral arms of the Whirlpool Galaxy, and more. Revolutionary Single Fork Arm Mount We know the best telescope is the one you'll use usually. That is why Celestrons engineers produced NeXSt.
The "Double Stacked" Coronado SolarMax II Solar Telescope is a beautiful instrument that sports polished brass and black finishes also as exactly crafted tuning knobs. When you buy a "Double Stacked" Coronado SolarMax 60 II Solar Telescope your package will include: Coronado Hard Carrying Case Life Time Tech Support from High Point Scientific The "double stacked" Coronado SolarMax II is a serious instrument built for someone wanting to see the finest regions of detail on our sun. Prominences, flares, filaments and ever changing surface regions of the sun will all be brought to you in high def with the SolarMax. So why is a "Double Stacked" solar telescope better then a conventional solar telescope? The simple answer is that you get considerably improved optical resolution with the "double stacked" variant. Coronado has improved the "double stacked" SolarMax 60 by putting an extra filter etalon at the front of the scope. Now there are two etalons present, one internally with the new RichView tuning system and one at the front of the scope with the T-Max tuning system. "Double Stacking" the etalons improves the scopes resolution by decreasing the already narrow < . 7 angstrom bandpass to an narrower < . 5 angstrom bandpass. With this set up, the improved resolution and contrast can offer a view of the sun that's totally stunning. The "double stacked" system works the same as a non "double stacked" system, the only difference is that now it is a three part system. The telescope body incorporates a tunable sub-aperture etalon in its body also as a removable etalon on the front of the scope. These tunable etalons works in conjunction with a 10mm blocking filter situated in the solar telescopes 1. 25" star diagonal. Together these elements produce a < . 5 Angstrom passband which yields an best balance of prominence and surface detail. RichView Tuning - newly re-de.
Now you may be able to have your a la carte assemblage of your favored optical tube and mount. All Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes use the multicoated Starbright coatings group. Greatly reflective coatings were used on the mirrors, with anti-reflective coatings employed on the correcting lens for increases in light transmission. Celestron's optical systems interior baffling assures the highest contrast levels. To preserve the company's mindset also as to offer steadily high performance and buyer satisfaction, all Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain optical assemblies use the same superior optics despite of their size or configuration. The StarBright XLT coatings are all that distinguish this offering from the common 8" optical tube assembly. These coatings considerably decrease the total % of light loss incurred by the scope's system of lenses & mirrors by a measure of 43%! Light is invariably lost as it passes through lenses or is reflected from mirrors and this can have a especially dramatic effect of deep space objects. StarBright XLT coatings are a greatly intensive procedure which diminishes this effect and brings the faintest things your scope can resolve into greater detail. They will bring the details of bigger apertures without adding to the weight of your rig.
