The Celestron C11-A XLT Optical Tube Assembly packs serious light gathering ability into a rugged aluminum optical tube. At only 24 inches long and weighing just 27.5 pounds, this telescope is still portable enough to be taken to dark skies and set up by a single person. It's an ideal instrument for serious astrophotography.

The Celestron C11-A XLT provides excellent, high-contrast views and can perform at very high magnifications. It is equipped with Celestrons patented StarBright XLT optical coatings, which visibly increase contrast and light transmission for brighter deep space images and shorter exposure times. With StarBright XLT, you'll be able to discern subtle details while viewing the Moon and planets, as well as faint galaxies and nebulae.

The tube offers a focal ratio of f/10 with the added versatility of Fastar (see below). You can also pair it with the f/6.3 focal reducer for even more astro imaging options. The Celestron C11-A XLT can be mounted on a multitude of computerized telescope mounts thanks to its CG-5 dovetail bar. This flagship optical tube is sure to take your visual observing or imaging to the next level.
