Product Highlights

  • 11" Schmidt-Cassegrain OTA
  • 2800mm Focal Length, f/10 Focal Ratio
  • StarBright XLT Optical Coatings
  • 40mm Eyepiece, 90° Diagonal
  • 9x50 Finderscope
  • CGE (Losmandy) Dovetail Plate
  • OTA Only; Mount and Tripod Required

Outfitted with an over-sized aperture, long effective focal length, and their proprietary StarBright XLT optical coatings, the Celestron C11-A XLT 11" f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope provides power and portability. The coating system consists of anti-reflection coatings on the corrector plate, highly reflective index mirror coatings, and low-absorption/high-transmission glass components to ensure that the maximum amount of light is gathered and transmitted to the user's eye. This system ensures bright and clear high-contrast images with accurate color rendition across the entire visual spectrum without visible distortion at the edges. Celestron includes a standard 1.25" visual back to accept eyepieces and accessories such as the 40mm eyepiece and 90° diagonal supplied with the optical tube assembly (OTA). This OTA is offered here without a mount or tripod for users who already have a support system - just ensure the mount's payload capacity exceeds 27.5 pounds to safely carry the weight, and has a Losmandy-style saddle to match the OTA's CGE mounting plate.

Optical Tube
  • 11" (279.4mm) aperture
  • f/10 focal ratio
  • 2800mm effective focal length
  • Schmidt-Cassegrain design optical path
  • StarBright XLT optical coatings
  • Resolution: 0.5 arcsec (Rayleigh); 0.42 arcsec (Dawes)
  • Secondary mirror obstruction: 3.75" (95 mm); 34% by diameter; 12% by area
StarBright XLT System
  • Maximizes light transmission through optical path
  • Improves color rendition, contrast, sharpness, resolution, and brightness
  • Broad-band system provides flat wavelength transmission across the entire visual spectrum
  • Multi-layer mirror coatings with layers of aluminum, SiO2 (quartz), and TiO2 (titanium dioxide)
  • Multi-layer anti-reflective corrector plate coatings with layers of MgF2 (magnesium fluoride) and HfO2 (hafnium dioxide). Hafnium has a wider band-pass than the commonly used titanium
  • High-transmission water white glass corrector plate limits light loss due to internal absorption
Mounting
  • Optical tube only - Mount and tripod required for proper use
  • Supplied with CGE dovetail plate that is compatible with Losmandy-style saddles
  • Mount must have a payload capacity of over 27.5 pounds to safely support the OTA

  • 50mm aperture
  • Mounting bracket included
