Celestron - 11"
f/10 Carbon Fiber OTA
This scope is now only
used visually and for webcam imaging of planets and the moon.
With the exception of
some planetary web cam imaging, this scope is used for all my ccd
imaging. Although there are several better scopes available,
the C11 is a very good value.
The long focal length,
2800 mm, makes imaging difficult. A reducer gets the F.L. down
to about 1650 mm, which is still considered too long for beginning
CCD imaging. I don't regret starting the hard way, the high
power of this scope has forced me to develop better guiding
techniques. With my future short focal length refractor,
guiding is going to be really easy.
