Introducing the C6-SGT, the newest member of the Celestron Advanced Series family. Unparalleled performance, unbeaten value!

The Advanced C6-SGT models come standard with Celestron's StarBright XLT coatings at no extra cost.

Mounted on the Advanced GT Series computerized mount, this telescope has some high performance software and hardware features. Operated by Celestron's proven NexStar computer control technology the telescope has a 40,000+ object database with 100 user-definable objects and expanded information on over 200 objects. Custom database lists all the most famous deep-sky objects by name and catalog number; the most beautiful double, triple, and quadruple stars; variable star; solar system objects; and asterisms.

Using the RS-232 communication port on the hand control, you can control the telescope via a personal computer and our new flash upgradeable hand controls allow you to update your telescope's operating software via the internet. An autoguider port is also included for astrophotography. No matter at what level you are starting out, this precision instrument will satisfy your needs both visually and photographically.

Celestron's new German Equatorial mount has precision worm gears on both axes for extremely smooth stability. The key element that makes this system the most stable in its class is the new heavy-duty tripod with larger and more substantial legs that offer excellent damping characteristics for more stable views. The mount also has a convenient latitude scale for easier alignment.
