About this product

Model:  c6xltota
Part Number:  91010-XLT

This is one of our favourite SCT telescopes, it delivers remarkably high performance per centimeter of aperture! 

When Synta acquired Celestron the Americans were not happy, they were not confident the Chinese could manufacture high-quality SCT telescopes. The Chinese can of course manufacture optics to whatever standard they choose. Synta designed and manufactured their first SCT telescope, the one shown here on this page, and supplied it with the Celestron 6SE and Nexstar C6S Adavanced VX. They chose a 6-inch aperture to ensure it would be noticed (there weren't any other 6-inch SCT models on the market). Needless to say the telescope was/is very good and per centimetre of aperture it is still regarded as one of the finest SCT telescopes available. The Americans were convinced so Synta moved the manufacture of other Celestron SCT telescopes in-house and have gone from strength to strength.

Compatible with the Hyperstar imaging system.
