Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain Optical Tube Assemblies (OTA) are available individually for use with your favorite mount. Each OTA is made to the same exacting standards as those used on all our high quality telescopes. All optical surfaces are coated with Celestron’s high efficiency StarBright® multi-layered coating group.
These tube assemblies are equipped with the same dovetail mounting bar used on the CGE and Advanced Series for easy attachment to a variety of popular mounts. Every tube assembly is made, assembled and quality control tested at our manufacturing facility in Torrance, California.
EdgeHD optics produce a focal plane more than three-times flatter than a standard Schmidt Cassegrain telescope and dramatically flatter than other competing coma-free designs.
This guarantees you visibly sharp stars across some of the largest CCD chips available today. The optical system was designed to reduce more than just off-axis star coma, but also to give an astrograph quality flat focal plane all the way to the edge of the field of view.
