Tom figured how to mass-produce Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes at a reasonable price, and not long afterward, the Celestron C8 made its way to the consumer market. Celestron has always stuck to the notion that astronomy should be accessible to anyone and today, Celestron offers the largest selection of telescopes, binoculars, spotting scopes, and accessories.
