The Celestron CGEM DX 1100 EdgeHD Computerised Telescope
combines the newly designed CGEM DX computerized equatorial mount with its top of the line EdgeHD optical system. Weighing only 28lbs, the optical tube assembly can be removed and packed easily for travel while the mount can be set up easily. Pack it up to bring to your favourite dark locations.
Improved Optical System
Imagine taking the compact power of a Schmidt Cassegrain Telescope and combining it with an new and improved high definition optical system. What you would get would be the CGEM DX 1100 EdgeHD Telescope
, designed to enable the user to capture high quality wide field astrophotography images. Aberrations have been reduced across the whole field of view even through the CCD sensor or DSLR camera while with the extremely flat focal plane, you will still get razor sharp images. Even stars or objects at the edge of the field will still remain in tight focus! The EdgeHD 14" delivers star sizes of only 1 arc second. Included with this telescope is Celestron's top of the line 2” barrel eyepiece. You get a wide field of view of 82° which has been optimized to deliver pinpoint images when used with a flat field telescope such as the 14” EdgeHD Optical System
The CGEM DX
mount is the newest member to join Celestron’s fully computerized equatorial mounts. The CGE Pro's style and design, 2.75” tripods ensure a vibration free viewing experience. This is critical when viewing and during astrophotography sessions that use very high magnifications. With a slew speed of 5° per second and built in software modelling that compensates for inherent inaccuracies, you will be able to find your target quickly and accurately.
For astrophotographers, the Permanent Periodic Error Correction takes care of the tiny incremental errors that build up over time the worm gears are in use. Reducing these errors help maintain precise tracking of objects in the sky. A quality that is required for successful long exposure photography.
