The CT Range

CT8

From: £1,225.00 excl. VAT

The CT8 is the introductory model in our incredible CT range of telescopes. Not only will it enable you to see things thought impossible with a 200mm telescope but, we know you will find in using it that images overall, even the ones you are perhaps familiar with in the night sky, become so much more detailed and interesting.

Having a 1/10PV primary mirror which, along with the secondary are both Hilux coated, fine detail on the planets becomes a far easier target, contrast is enhanced because of the super smooth reflecting surface which collects all the light into a highly detailed image plane, perfect territory for high magnification viewing.
