CELESTRON 14” (36 cm) SCT

We offer knobs for all versions of the Celestron 14” f/11 Schmidt-Cassegrain secondary with Allen collimation screws, or either standard or metric Phillips collimation screws. Select knobs for your telescope from the list below. Please use care to select the correct knobs for your telescope. Each knob set is different and they are not interchangeable. Price is for a complete set of knobs.

Special Note: The Celestron 14” SCT uses either standard 6-32 or metric M3 collimation screws. Headless set-style and silver Phillips factory collimation screws have standard threads. Generally black Phillips collimation screws have metric threads but a few have standard threads. If you order knobs with the wrong screws, contact us using the link at the bottom of this page for return instructions.
