q&a

The C9 1/4-SGT telescope combines the unequaled optical excellence of a Celestron 9 1/4 inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope with our computerized CG-5 German Equatorial mount for the ultimate economical astrophotography system.

The 9 1/4 inch was specifically designed for visual infinity focus when using 2 inch eyepieces and has an optimized baffle system to benefit astrophotography by minimizing vignetting at the edge of the field of view. Its longer primary focal length and lower magnification secondary mirror contribute to a flatter field of view at the focal plane and helps to further reduce optical aberrations.

This C9 1/4 optical system comes with our premium StarBright XLT coatings. The optimized baffling system benefits astrophotography and gives high contrast views of the planets. With 33 percent more light gathering than the 8 inch model, the C9 1/4-S is compatible with the complete line of Celestron photographic and visual accessories.

Mounted on the Advanced GT Series computerized mount, this telescope has some high performance software and hardware features. Operated by our proven NexStar computer control technology the telescope has a 40,000+ object database with 100 user-definable objects and expanded information on over 200 objects. Custom database lists of all the most famous deep-sky objects by name and catalog number; the most beautiful double, triple and quadruple stars; variable star; solar systems; objects and asterisms.

Using the RS-232 communication port on the hand control, you can control the telescope via a personal computer and our new flash upgradeable hand controls allow you to update your telescope's operating software via the internet. An autoguider port is also included for astrophotography.
