About Our Tubes
We occasionally offer replacement carbon fiber tubes for Celestron® C14 telescopes. These tubes are the exact same size as the original tube and are pre-drilled for easy installation. Our  tubes fit the orange, black, and grey series of Celestron® scopes*.
These replacement carbon tubes are fully coated with our flat black paint process on the interior of the tube to minimize reflections. The exterior of these tubes is clear-coated with two-part, automotive grade urethane.

*Replacement tubes for all other scopes have been discontinued due to too many variations.

Swapping out the tube is very straight forward...

•Turn the focus knob to move the mirror as far back as it will go.
•Lay the scope on it's side for the rest of the process and roll it as    needed.
•Remove the screws that hold the corrector, then remove the corrector.
•If you are nervous about touching or damaging the mirror surface during this procedure, then it would be best to disassemble the focuser assembly, remove the stop ring from the baffle tube, and remove the mirror altogether.
•You now have access to the nuts and bolts holding the tube to the cells. Remove the nuts and bolt and then the tube.

•This is a good time to clean your optics and re-lube the scope.

•Reverse the process using the new tube.
•Minor collimation will be needed to complete the process.

Dew Shields...

Carbon fiber dew shields vary in length and are available on an
occasional basis, please inquire to for availability.

Our dew shields fits inside of the front cell. You can either
drill and tap the cell for nylon set screws or use felt tabs to
friction fit it in place. The dew shields are fully coated with our flat black paint process on the interior of the tube to minimize reflections.
