Celestron Advanced C6R – Refractor

Elvis Elvis

This is a big scope, it’s primary lens being six inches in diameter. Not really aimed at the beginner, it may be worth considering if you know that you are going to take the pastime very seriously, in which case why not choose this 6″ refractor! Check out the weight too- at 57 lbs it’s no featherweight. This may be a consideration if you need to move it over any distance regularly.

This deluxe quality 1200mm focal length, f/8 German Equatorial mounted achromatic refractor is an excellent choice for the serious astronomer, the C6-R is the largest telescope in its class with over 6 times the light gathering ability of a 60mm.

It features premium accessories such as a heavy duty CG-5 German equatorial mount, 9×50 finderscope with bi-directional alignment screws and a spring loaded pivot support, 20mm Plössl 1-1/4″ eyepiece, 2″ focuser, 2x Barlow with photo adapter, accessory tray and much more.
