Celestron C5 Spotter overview

  • 1Description

The Celestron C5 127mm f/10 50x Spotting Scope is the ideal choice for the serious bird watcher, nature lover, amateur astronomer, or anyone who enjoys beautiful views - either from home or in the field. With its generous 5" aperture, the C5 Spotter will easily outperform smaller aperture spotting scopes. This is a versatile optical tool with a minimum close-focus range of 20' to make it ideal for observing plant life, wildlife, birds or insects; and since it accepts any 1.25" eyepiece the C5 can also be used as an astronomical telescope. The scope can easily be transformed from a powerful spotting scope to a high performance 1250mm f/10 telephoto lens with the use of the optional T-adapter and camera-specific T-ring. Celestron offers the C5 here without a tripod, but includes a 1/4"-20 mounting block so it can easily be attached to many photo, video, and field tripods with a payload capacity of at least 6 pounds. The block has multiple holes along its length for proper placement to achieve the optimum balance.
