Ten-inch Teleport

That statement got my attention. Having become interested in astronomy about a year ago with the purchase of a Celestron C5+ Schmidt Cassegrain Telescope (SCT) I had decided that I really needed more light-gathering power. The C5+ was a great first telescope, but after about six months I was longing to see more detail in deep space objects (particularly globular clusters and nebulas) and craved better contrast for high-powered planetary viewing.
