My Celestron C5+

Here is a picture of my Celestron C5+ telescope. My Pentax K1000 35mm camera is mounted on it as it was when I took my lunar eclipse photographs. It is a 5", f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain with a focal length of 1250mm. I use it mounted on the tabletop wedge, which is in turn mounted on Celestron's standard aluminum field tripod.

If you want to learn more about this telescope, you can read the review by Sky & Telescope, or you can read the propaganda that Celestron has to offer.
