Product QuestionsWhat is this telescope's eyepiece fitting diameter?it does not specify in the additional info section
will it be compatible with this camera mount ?https://www.optcorp.com/celestron-neximage-burst-color.html
thanks for answering my questionsQuestion by: Awang - Nizzam on Mar 12, 2016 9:44:00 PMThe specifications list the focal ratio as f/7.87 and a 5" mirror. That's a focal length of approx. 40 inches, yet the tube size is only 20" long. What is it? ~ f/4 or ~f/8???Question by: Shawn on May 16, 2014 3:48:55 AMQuestion by: Kurt on Aug 1, 2014 5:34:53 PMHello Kurt,
There are two types of covers that are available for this telescope depending on the type of protection that you want.
If you want to just cover it & the weather is dry, the TeleGizmos Solar Cover for 3" (80mm-120mm) Refractors will suffice.
Even though this says it is for refractors, this will work on this telescope as well.
If you want something that is waterproof, the TeleGizmos 365 Series Cover for 3" - 4" Refractor Telescopes would work.

A Rigel Quikfinder or Celestron red dot finder might be a better option. Please contact us if you have questions.Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on Oct 1, 2015 4:45:00 PM
