OPT proudly carries a vast selection of Celestron Telescopes, Eyepieces, Filters, Cameras and an array of Telescope Accessories. We stand by their notion that today, whether you are an experienced astrophotographer or casual observer, astronomy should be accessible to anyone. Here at OPT, you can count on our expertise to help you find the perfect Celestron Telescope and Astronomy Equipment.
Celestron’s aplanatic EdgeHD optics revolutionized astroimaging. This award-winning optical system reduces visual defects like field curvature and coma, creating an ultra-flat field for pinpoint stars all the way to the edge of today’s largest imaging sensors.
Celestron’s patented StarSense Technology makes it easier than ever to locate objects in the night sky, even if you’ve never used a telescope before. Turn it on and push ‘Align.’ In about three minutes, you’re ready to observe!
One of the most important factors in a telescope is its transmission — the percentage of light that reaches the focal plane. Celestron's proprietary StarBright XLT optical coatings dramatically increase transmission, up to 97.4% on their Schmidt corrector lenses.
Celestron’s SkyPortal planetarium app is an astronomy suite that redefines how you experience the night sky. Explore the Solar System, thousands of stars, star clusters, nebulae, galaxies, asteroids, comets, and satellites. You can even control and automatically align a compatible Celestron telescope from a smartphone or tablet using StarSense and WiFi technology.
SkyAlign alignment technology makes setting up a computerized telescope simple, fast, and accurate. Just point the telescope at any three bright objects — stars, bright planets, or even the Moon — and your telescope can orient itself with the night sky.
This telescope control software replaces the hand control and allows the user to remotely control their Celestron computerized telescope from their personal PC or laptop.
All-Star Polar Alignment
Get ready for a night of astroimaging with your mount faster than previously thought possible with All-Star Polar Alignment. This innovative software solves the time-consuming problem of trying to pinpoint the North Celestial Pole.
The new Lithium Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery chemistry has significant advantages over other battery chemistries, great for those Astronomers on the go.
WiFi technology encircles the globe in a web of connectivity, knowledge, and information. Now, Celestron is using that same technology to allow stargazers to connect to the night sky and enhance their experience of the cosmos in fun and unique ways.
