The Celestron C5 Spotting Scope offers a 5" (127mm) aperture, 1250 mm f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain optical system. The high optical excellence is the reason NASA used this telescope for several space shuttle missions.

The C5 spotting scope is an ideal choice for the serious bird watcher, nature lover or anyone who enjoys beautiful views from their home or in the field. At just six pounds in weight and 11 inches in length, this spotting scope is a portable visual and photographic instrument with a wide variety of optional accessories to expand it's capabilities.

The 5" aperture will outperform most smaller aperture spotting scopes. Offering 4˝ times more light gathering ability than a 60 mm spotting scope and 2˝ times more than an 80 mm scope, Celestron's C5 is the clear choice when a powerful instrument delivering bright, crisp views is what you require.

The near-focus of approximately 20 feet allows you to observe plant life, wildlife, birds or insects. The C5 is also a very capable telescope for astronomy and operates as a powerful 1250 mm f/10 telephoto lens for photography (optional T-adapter and T-ring required). The tripod adapter block on the C5's tube makes easy work of mounting the instrument onto a photo-tripod.

Supplied with soft sided carrying case.
