Quick Overview

The Celestron C11-XLT is a Schmidt -Cassegrain telescope, 280mm diameter and 2800mm focal length, its large aperture produces bright images making it suitable for observation of even the faintest objects, also thanks to the Starbright XLT coatings. The large diameter, combined with the high optical quality, it also allows a large magnification capability, making the C11 a great telescope also for planetary observation and photography.

In order to take advantage of this telescope, you need a mount with high load capacity, at least EQ6 type. For photography of deep-sky objects we recommend the optional focal reducer to reduce the focal ratio to f/6.3. 3 years of warranty!

The Celestron XLT optical quality has always been considered one of the best on the market. The correction to the diffraction limit and the special Starbright XLT coating, make these optics ideal for various use. Suitable for observation and photography, from planetary to deep-sky, it has many optional accessories to easily connect any CCD or DSLR camera.



The optics an the Starbright XLT coatings

Celestron has always had a lot of care on the choice of materials and coatings used in their optics. Precisely for this reason, the XLT have always been the best-selling Cassegrain in the world, their versatility has met the needs of many users in many fields of use. This optical scheme has been realized with spherical mirrors, on the optical path there isn't any other lenses, except the front corrector plate. Despite its compact size and light weight, the focal length is long, ideal for high resolution imaging. The images are very sharp and contrasty, the Starbright coatings ensures an optimum brightness even with faint objects.

The Celestron XLT for deep-sky imaging

It's the ideal telescope for planetary imaging even in high resolution. Thanks to the optional focal reducer, its focal length can be reduced to f/6.3 making it very good also for deep-sky astrophotography. This optic it's also Fastar compatible, which allows the user to further reduce the focal length to f / 2 (for photographic use only), so you can take pictures with very short exposure times, and in some cases autoguiding is not required. The field is completely flat and well illuminated from the center of the mirror up to the edges, even the stars appear geometrically and chromatically corrected thanks especially to corrector plate.
