Group Description

TO JOIN: To prevent spamming, we ask for a one-line statement of your interest in this group (robots still can't do that). Show that you know what a C14 or EdgeHD is and you'll be in.

C14_EdgeHD features the older and newer versions of the 14-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes, the SCT design. These are the classic C14s and the newer, photographically optimized "EdgeHD" series. C14_EdgeHD is open to those who are merely curious or own other telescope designs. Many members own C11 and 9.25 models. We are ecumenical with regard to mounts: Celestron mounts are used only by some members, and some go back to the sand-cast forks.

As Celestron's Edge HD series makes its way into general use, owners of the older generation of equipment look forward to sharing knowledge with owners of the new EdgeHD series.

SEMINARS. Invited guests answer questions from C14 group members for a few days. The group may be put on moderated status for a few days (C14 members typically post without review). SMALL VENDORS: Contact the group moderator if you have a product of interest to the group.

The group charter permits discussion of all telescope designs and mounts, though the C14, C11, C9.25, and their EdgeHD versions are our principal focus. This includes photographic applications as well as visual observation.
