    Celestron CGEM II 1100 EdgeHD Telescope

    Celestron CGEM II 1100 EdgeHD Computerised Telescope is the perfect optics with pin point accuracy, providing you the best views for sky observation and astro-imaging. The premium NexStar software also comes with features such as auto alignment, error correction and a huge database of celestial objects, to make observation easy and hassle-free.

    This execellent telescope features an improved high definition optical system, which plenty of deep-sky objects with amazing clarity and aberration-free are presented. It is designed to produce an extremely flat focal plane that is precise enough to match the strict tolerances of the largest commercial CCD detectors. This allows every star to be in tight focus right to the edge of the sensor chip.

    Featuring the new, attractive, and bold appearance CGEM II computerized equatorial mount, it is capable of carrying Celestron's higher-end SCT optical tubes securely, which is perfect for both imaging and visual observing. Equipped with a new innovative Polar alignment procedure called All-Star™, you can choose any bright star and the software will use it to calculate and assist you when conducting the polar alignment. The additional Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PEC) allows users to train out the worm gear's periodic errors, while the mount retains the PEC recordings. The CGEM II mount has a robust database with over 40,000 objects, 100 user defined programmable objects and enhanced information on over 200 objects.
