Celestron Mak Spotting Scopes
The Celestron C5 Spotting Scope 52291 is a 5" (127mm) aperture, 1250mm f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain optical system. The optical excellence of the Celestron C5 Spotting scope is the reason it was chosen by NASA for many space shuttle missions. At just six pounds in weight and 11 inches in length, this Spotting Scope is a completely portable visual and photographic instrument that performs well in any viewing location. The C5's aperture of 5" allows it to easily outperform smaller aperture spotting scopes. Offering 4½ times more light gathering ability than a 60 mm spotting scope and 2½ times more than an 80 mm scope, Celestron's C5 Spotter is the clear choice when a powerful instrument delivering brilliant, crisp views is what you require.
Photography couldn't be easier, because the C5 Spotter is designed to be fully camera adaptable. To take professional quality shots with the C5 Spotter, just attach the correct optional T- Adapter and T-Ring for your 35 mm SLR camera to the back of the C5 spotting scope, and you're ready to shoot. The tripod adapter block on the C5's tube makes easy work of mounting the instrument onto a tripod for either viewing or photography. The C5 Spotter comes complete inside its own soft sided carrying case.
