The Celestron C8, for example falls right in the middle of the advanced series. It offers GPS compatibility for precision accuracy and computer control technology. All of their advanced telescopes share some of the most state-of-the-art features available to the consumer today. They sit on industrial strength computer assisted German Equatorial mounts with two inch steel legs and centerpiece for optimum stability and made to dampen vibration.

The Celestron C8 telescope also comes equipped with the Proven NexStar, Star Locating Telescope (SLT) refractors and reflectors and are loaded with valuable design features.

And with an ergonomically-designed hand control the user is free to remove the hand control from its holder for remote use or leave it cradled for hands-free operation.

With a touch of a button you can select the object catalog, change the slew speed, view fascinating information about an object, or just know a certain object is visible in the sky. It also features an Auto guider port for long exposure astrophotography and a foxy Double line, 16-character Liquid Crystal Display Hand Control with backlit LED which makes getting to those go to commands a breeze. Finally, with the use of its communication port, you can control the telescope using your personal computer. How awesome is that?
