Disclaimer: The Celestron 1200 Lightraider is a fictitious piece of hardware. Celestron is a real company that started making amazing telescopes in the 1960's. This design is not technically accurate in anyway and has a vague resemblance to some of their high end computer controlled telescopic equipment.
