The Celestron CGE Pro 1400 Computerised Telescope
is one of the premier German equatorial mounted astronomical telescopes. As the sayign goes, size does matter. This 14” Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope has over three times the light gathering power of an 8” model. This an observatory-class instrument is every astronomer's dream come true.
Great for All Purposes
The high quality optics system with Starbright XLT coated lens is partnered with a CGE Pro mount. This delivers considerable viewing power and high quality images on a stable and precision computerized mount. The telescope is particularly useful for long exposure astro-imaging, making it peerfect for astrophotography enthusiasts. Attach a CCD or a camera to the eyepiece and you have yourself a very useful scientific research tool.
Once aligned, use the vast database of celestial objects to learn more about the deep sky objects available on that night. Catch a glimpse of the details on rings of Saturn and the outer planets that are now within your viewing range.
Redesigned CGE Pro German Equatorial Mount
The German Equatorial mount design has been favored by most astrophotographers because of its rock solid stability, simple balancing and ease of attaching equipment. The computer driven features of the mount also makes the mount more convenient to use. It can maintain start alignment night after night making it ideal for a permanent observatory facility.
The complete redesigned CGE Pro German Equatorial mount now offers a several design improvements that will help in all areas including stability, alignment, tracking, accuracy and calibration. For instance, the new All Star polar alignment system comes in handy as it is able to align itself to any star while with the larger hand knobs of the No-Tool polar alignment, you will be able to make Altitude and Azimuth adjustments with ease. The mount also allows you to track past the Meridian while delivering you with faster slew speeds. Tracking capabilities of the telescope is enhanced by a larger .75” pitch diameter precision cut worm gear and armature motors. With a software that offers mount calibration compensation, accuracy and precision is easily achievable!
All CGE mounted telescopes are compatible with Celestron's GPS accessory. When combined with the real time clock on the mount, the CGE Pro Telescopes
will keep track and remember their exact location and time without having to enter the information into the hand control.
