Celestron C/6 XLT SCT Review by Douglas

Agree totally with all above reviews. I am 60 years old and have been a keen observer for many of them. This scope would have to be the best value instrument going. Excelent star test, lots of detail on Jupiter last night,and double star resolution to keep any observer happy for a life time. Highpoint staff were very helpfull, the best i have encountered. Very high recomendation.

Celestron C6-A OTA Review by Frank

This telescope was purchased online from High Point Scientific. It's a very good value for the money, considering that you get a 25mmm Celestron Plossl and the entire tube assembly. The optics are much better than expected: I've owned and constructed several astronomical telescopes, and this one I would rate as "excellent"" for a 6"" SCT. It's light weight

Celestron C6-A OTA Review by Frank

Very good for the price! The scope gives sharp images, and, with tube weight of only 8-1/2 pounds total, is very easy to transport. It's not temperature-sensitive like reflectors, which don't give good image quality until the temperature and tube air currents stabilize. It arrived in good collimation, and It much better than I expected, I've owned several good astronomical telescopes in the past sixty years.

Celestron C6A OTA Review by Frank

I bought one of these from High Point Scientific a few months ago, and it seems to be a very nice and sharp little unit. It's nice for travel, too, and won't bend your wallet.

Celestron C6 Review Review by Ernest

This is my 2nd C6 (Both purchased from HP Scientific). I sold my last C6 setup because I was not really using it due to large scopes. I have had a long run of large scopes & was just tired of the pulling out, setup hassles. I decided to finally down size to a nice easy setup, but without sacrificing good views. There was a time I never wanted to go below an 8" scope... while this may still be the best overall size I.M.O .... price

C6-A SCT OTA Review by Darian

Excellent price. Shipped very quickly. I've been observing for 40+ years; this is the first SCT I've owned. Jupiter was the first celestial object I viewed through this scope and I was very pleased with the image. The scope is well made and works very well on my CG-4 mount. I am extremely pleased with the service I received from High Point.
