Outfitted with an oversized aperture, long effective focal length, and their proprietary StarBright XLT optical coatings, the Celestron C14-AF XLT 14" f/11 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope
provides high 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-thread 2" visual back and reducer adapter to accept eyepieces
and accessories such as the 1.25" 40mm eyepiece and 2" 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 45 pounds to safely
carry the weight, and has a Losmandy-style saddle to match the OTA's CGE
* The difference is about 2". The CGE uses a Losmandy "D" compatible dovetail (about 4" wide) and the CG5 uses a Vixen compatible plate (about 2" wide).
Based on Astronomy magazine’s telescope "report cards", scopes of this size and type generally perform as follows . . .
