Quick Overview

The Celestron C14-XLT is a Schmidt-Cassegrain 355mm diameter and 3910mm focal length telescope, it's the largest and the brightest Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain series. The large size and excellent optical quality make it the ultimate instrument, ideal for fixed position but still portable. OnAxisLock 50,8mm visual back for SC telescopes included in the price!


Suitable both for observation and photography, the C14-XLT is well suited for those who want to use it for research, such as spectrometry, asteroids research and supernovae. For this telescope, a very precise and high load capacity mount is required, like an EQ8 or CGE PRO.

Details

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.

Great for high-resolution imaging of Moon and planets

The Celestron C14-XLT is the ideal telescope for high-resolution lunar and planetary imaging. It offers not only large diameter (which allows you to increase a lot magnification and have resolution capacity, fundamental factors for the lunar and planetary photography) but also high optical correction and reduced obstruction than other Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes (32% versus 34% of C11 for example) improve image contrast. This is why many of the best world astrophotographers use C14 for their images.

This telescope is also Fastar compatible, which allows the user to further reduce the focal ratio 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.
