Comments about Celestron Advanced Series C9.25-SGT Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope:

This telescope system was incredibly easy to set up and use. I had one initial glitch with the first goto setup, then started over and it was pretty much dead on from there. The images on the scope were great.

Service and delivery comments:

Everything was delivered on time and without damage.

Comments about Celestron Advanced Series C9.25-SGT Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope:

Hand controller does not allow slow rate declination adjustment. List of alignment stars excludes several prominent stars in my location. Conclude that hand controller is faulty.

Fantastic, a good value!

By Chris Russell

from Undisclosed

Comments about Celestron Advanced Series C9.25-SGT Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope:

This 9.25" scope outperforms my 12.5" Dob, with tracking and goto to boot. It is very loud, though, and sometimes the gears sound very strange. The instructions are not complete either. It took a bit of sleuth work to figure out how everything works because of the manual.

Fantastic Scope

By David

from Undisclosed

Comments about Celestron Advanced Series C9.25-SGT Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope:

The imaging capabilities of this scope make the XLT coating a "Must Have". The staff at Telescopes.com made this investment a pleasure. Fast, Friendly and effective. You just don't hear that, today.

C9.25-S GT Schmidt-Cassegrain w/XLT Coatings

By Mark Bouyer

from Undisclosed

Comments about Celestron Advanced Series C9.25-SGT Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope:

It looks like an excellent telescope, but I'm still figuring out how it goes together. There seems to be an extra part that fits into the dovetail slot at the mount, but this part doesn't seem to have anything to do with the optical tube. I don't know if I can slide the optical tube dovetail into the mount slot because the mount slot appears to be bigger. There is also a feature on the equatorial mount with the markings "RA" (right ascension) that appears to accept a cylidrical shaft, but there was nothing in the kit that fits into it. There is just a cap that covers it. I suspect its for a manual control, but I have the GT model. I looked up instructions on the web, but there is nothing definitive about the configuration. I'm continuing my search for documentation.

Q: "Is this scope "Fastar" compatabile?"
A: It is, but unless you already have the fastar lens assembly you will not be able to get it as it has been discontinued by Celestron.
