Hi everyone,
We are building another set of C-14 carbon fiber replacement tubes and we have just 2 left unsold. Tubes will be ready to ship by Feb 28th. If you'd like to purchase one or just want to know more about our products, please visit http://carbonscopetu...tron_Tubes.html today.
These particular tubes are specifically made for the Celestron C-14 telescope. These tube have a beautiful, polished clear-coat exterior, a flat black painted interior, and are pre-drilled for easy installation.

As always, we have a large selection of tooling for making custom tubes. Our sizes range from 7.5" to 24". We can tailor the wall thickness, length, and finish to your needs.

All of our tubes are professionally made of aerospace quality, compression wrapped carbon fiber. These premium tubes have an automotive two-part UV protected urethane clear coat for a beautiful, hi-gloss finish.
Carbon fiber has vastly superior thermal expansion properties over aluminum. From my personal experience using a typical aluminum C-11, you need to refocus for every 1.5 to 2 degrees of temperature drop. Since the C-14 uses a longer tube, the effect is even greater. With our carbon tube, you can easily go many hours without refocusing. During a typical Michigan night, the temperature can easily drop 2 degrees per hour. Hence, Ha exposures over 45 minutes were impossible. Now I can image most of the night without re-focusing.
As always, this is a very limited run and it may be 6+ months before we make another run.

Thanks for reading,
