Product Details

  • The Celestron 14 inch Schmidt-Cassegrain OTA is available individually to be used with your favorite mount. This Celestron 14-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain is an excellent choice. Each OTA in this series is made to the same exacting standards as those used on all their high-quality telescopes. All optical surfaces are coated with StarBright XLT coatings.

    With over three times the light-gathering power of an 8-inch telescope, this observatory-class instrument is Celestron's largest optical system in its class. The 14-inch takes full advantage of the vast database of thousands of NGC and Abell galaxies as well as delivering a new level of detail to all your favorite deep-sky objects. Turn this scope to the planets and see amazing detail on the surface of Jupiter; see Cassini's Division in the rings of Saturn, and resolve details on the surface of Mars. Even the distant Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are within your reach.

    The Celestron C14 is Celestron's first new Schmidt-Cassegrain optical system in over a decade. The new 14-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain features a precision optical system, a 3910 mm focal length (f/11), and comes standard with Celestron's StarBright XLT coatings at no extra cost.

    Celestron warrants your telescope to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for two years. Celestron will repair or replace such product or part thereof which, upon inspection by Celestron, is found to be defective in materials or workmanship.

Incredible views

The telescope I have always wanted. I have been in astronomy for 40 years, and the views I have seen renewed my passion for the hobby. The resolving power and light gathering ability of 14 inches aperture are incredible. This is the first telescope I have ever used that averted vision wasn't needed to see all the stars in M13. The size of the telescope makes the 47 pounds awkward to handle if it were not for the carrying handles. The only reason I am giving a 4 star rating and not a 5 is from star tests I have conducted. Visually, stars in focus at low and high power were pinpoint with no visual degradation. However, star tests showed the diffraction patterns to be very close to perfect inside and outside of focus but not exact. I hadn't had a chance to use it on the planets yet. Once I got past the learning curve of setting up the CGXL mount I was able to slew to a few deep sky objects successfully with no backlash. The mount was rock solid stable and, I was able to change out various eyepieces without and residual vibration. My experience dealing with Opt Corp was a pleasant one. The telescope and mount were both back ordered but were shipped when they claimed they would ship. One moment of terror came on when the first telescope that was shipped looked like someone drove a forklift though the box and severely damaged the OT. This was UPS's fault. Not Opt Corp. My heart sank. I immediately called customer service and had no problems getting a RMA to return the OT. I worried that I was going to wait a long time for the replacement to come in,, but it arrived in 30 days. I plan on purchasing more from them again.
