Years ago, when they introduced the first commercially available Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope, Celestron
changed the face of amateur astronomy
. Since that time they've continued to astound the marketplace with innovations such as their SkyProdigy series of telescopes which combine electronic motors, on-board computers, digital cameras and their StarSense technology, which makes anyone an instant astronomer. Ensuring that the hobbyist and the professional get the most from the night sky is Celestron's expertise and passion. That is why more and more astronomers are choosing to buy Celestron telescope.
Celestron's NexStar range, which features high-quality Schmidt-Cassegrain optics, is perfect for observing and photographing the wonders of our universe. Some models weight under 13 kilos, making them very portable and thus easy to take to a gathering of like-minded astronomers in the dark wilds. Camera-control features make astrophotography a simpler, highly rewarding and very enjoyable pursuit.
Those looking for a classic telescope that evokes a traditional sense of adventure, curiosity and exploration will want to check out some of the long refractor telescopes the Celestron stocks. These fine pieces are what the average person on the street envisions when they think 'telescope.' Not only can one view the Moon with one, but also the moons of Jupiter and the rings of Saturn. Ideal for terrestrial viewing as well, an Astromaster telescope will also look handsome on display in the study.
The company's traditional manually operated telescopes and their computer-driven ones come with the kinds of extras and features that allow a novice astronomer to quickly advance through the ranks to expert level. Most models include planetarium software with thousands of objects in its database and enhanced images, so no one has to take to the stars uninformed. Celestron telescopes also feature superb mounts, so the magnificent views that are obtained remain stable.
Celestron even caters to individuals with Earth-bound interests. The binoculars they offer benefit from the advances in optics the company has made over the decades. People wishing to view wildlife, nature in general or sporting events can take to the field confidently, knowing that they have the best view available at their fingertips.
Globally, Celestron products have become the telescope of choice for informed hobbyists, and major colleges and universities worldwide use Celestron telescopes in their astronomy programs. The best endorsement from the scientific elite, however, is the fact that C5 from the Celestron telescope line has been chosen over competing brands by NASA to be taken on several space shuttle research missions. When you look upwards with a Celestron, you're in good company and you know you're getting the best view to the stars around.
