About Celestron

The Celestron Piggyback Mount is a great accessory for all observers interested in deep-sky astrophotography. This mount allows you to attach your camera, with its lens, to the top of the telescope. Its unique design also allows you to fit your NexStar telescope's Star Pointer on top of the Piggyback so that you can accurately navigate your telescope and conduct astrophotography at the same time.

The Piggyback adapter mounts to the rear cell of all Celestron 5, 6, 8, 11, 9.25 and 11-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes.

not a great fit for CPC-800

By

Delivery was quick but this item does not fit well on the CPC-800. The curvature is too small and there is very little room for mounting a camera along with the finder scope. The extension designed for the larger scopes (12-14") doesn't seem to help either. The CPC-800s have a plastic ring around the back end of the OTA. It may work for some, but I will not be using this attachment. For what it's worth the finder scope that came with the scope did not mount 'as advertised' either but I was able to make it work. If you really want to mount your SLR to the telescope this will work, though you might have to sacrifice your finder scope or do some rearranging.

do the work

I bought it to piggyback my camera onto my Celestron telescope. Works OK but you need to tighten the screw to avoid the mount moving around. It came with an adapter for some other Celestron telescope

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Can I use this piggyback mount with the Celestron C6-SGT?
JOSE M  Yes, you can use it with a C6 SCT. I bought it for a NexStar 6 SE and it fits well. It can also be used for a C8, and a C9.25, and even a C11 or C14 with the included adapter plate that is not shown in the product pictures. Each SCT telescope size requires screws of different sizes (also included), so be careful to use the ones indicated for your specific scope.
