I just earned Celestia and I do not know what level I should tackle Celestia. :(

At level 50 you're absolutely fine to go to Celestia. Parts of it will be a challenge, but that's the way it should be. My recommendation, as soon as you get to Celestia, find the vendor who sells the decks and get one for your school. It lets you place 7 of any of your schools spells like the best decks before this, but also lets you add 5 of any other school's spells. It's great for adding shields, healing cards, and certain attack boosts (feint, spirit and elemental blades and traps) if any of those things don't belong to your primary school. It may just be one additional copy of the card, but considering the size of these decks, it can really come in handy.
I personally would not recommend getting a larger deck. The more cards you have in your deck, the less likely you are to get the spells you need at the right time.
You should determine which spells you use the most, and to the best effect, and only put in enough cards that will be needed for the fight. That way you will be guaranteed to pull the cards you need WHEN you need them. I always put one reshuffle in my deck in the off chance that something goes awry and I run out of cards. This will not happen very often if you stack your deck appropriately.
48 :) or basically as soon as you gain access! I was higher level going in my first time around but the xp there is so great that I don't mind a challenge in order to get that much better xp. There is enough xp in survey camp (first area of celestia) alone to get you from 48-50 :D
The level your allowed to start unlocking it which is 48+Defeated Malistare. Many people say 50+ but it's not really true, although it would be the best idea to work on it at 50 because you have higher health and you can buy Celestia gear to boost it even more! :D
Well in depends if you hunt in a grp or solo better to be in grp goes quicker and alot eaiser. I have tryed both ways and me personally think grp is much better as some of them bosses own you rather quickly.
Anyone one know if the level cap will be raised from lvl 60 ?? I still have a few quests in celestia to finish yet but now that im lvl 60 i have no exp bar so anything i do is pointless as i dont get the exp??
Currently Merle Ambrose only lets his stronger students (level 48 or higher, who have also defeated Malistaire) into Celestia. My advice? Don't wait till level 50. There aren't any spells you are missing at that point, and you will be able to easily do the world with a friend. Me and my family (Me and two brothers, lvl 49 Ice and 48 Fire at the time, and I was lvl 49) did it fine together. Good luck :D
