    Comments about Celestron 8 Inch CPC EQ Wedge Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope:

    Setting it up was easy, using it was easier than I thought it would be. Only thing I would've done different is make the equitorial mount out of aluminum. With the tripod, it weighs more than the scope. After sighting it in earlier in the day, Setting it's coordinates was a no-brainer as night came. It worked flawlessly.

      Comments about Celestron 8 Inch CPC EQ Wedge Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope:

      Hayneedle does it again! David Powers and I had a conversation about a nice astrophotography setup and after nearly an hour we settled on this telescope. It was close, but the wedge inclusion makes this a no brainer. We discussed other things for the scope as well, a motofocus unit, tele-extender, things to make this a true astrophotography monster. We created a package, and then David found a way to save me EVEN more money, truly a special thing when CUSTOMER SERVICE is the first most important part of a purchase.

      This scope is big, so it's going to be heavy. That's the price of a big scope. It goes together easily, with everything well fitted and ready to go. The GPS unit aquired inside the house, (a true plus) and the spotting scope is a joy to behold, easy to align and easy to remove. The base and tripod are solid thick yet very elegant looking giving the scope a very plesant appearence.

      From the corrector plate to the visual back the scope is solid feeling and very well constructed, and the teleextender goes easily in place of the visual back making prime focus photography a breeze.

      The Focus knob is sturdy, but with the JMI Motofocus unite, no bounce focusing is a reality!

      A wonderful still very portable scope and easy to use in either the alt az mode, or with the wedge in place.

      I love it!
