Product QuestionsHi, I am new to dovetail plates and piggyback design. Here are my questions:
1) My Celestron NexStar 11 GPS telescope (old style) was purchased round 2002. Will the LO-DC11 dovetail plate fit my telescope?
2) I wish to purchase a Celestron guidescope and autoguider for my Celestron NexStar 11 GPS telescope (2002 old style). What would you recommend of such a guiding system (Parts Item numbers?). Is there a combo for sale? What type of dovetail plate (Item No. ?) will fit the guidescope and other accessorties?
Thank you for your help.
RamseyQuestion by: Ramsey on Jul 29, 2015 11:13:00 PMYes, the LO-DC11 will work with your scope. Celestron did not change the dimensions with the C11, only the C9.25, so the plates fit the older C11 scopes.
The CE-52309 would be the guidescope I recommend for this system. It fits the LO-DC11: http://www.optcorp.com/ce-52309-80mm-guidescope-package.html.Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on Jul 30, 2015 1:37:00 PMQuestion by: gerry on Jan 18, 2015 11:17:26 PMIs this the the newer stock ones that have the Laser Engraving with a scale on the edge or the older ones before they starting engraving? I ask this same question on the wrong product please disregard that one. Thank you
