My telescope: C8-N (CELESTRON 8" NEWTONIAN)


C8N telescope I bought in 2008 in Cluj.
    This telescope Celestron 8 „is a reflector telescope with a focal ratio high and rapid.Is an excellent scope for observing the solar system and performs well deepsky observations.Acest With the focal ratio f / 5 keeps moderate reasonably the light pollution. As with any telescope, Celestron C8N transportation in a region with a dark sky will significantly improve its performance of observations.
