Product Description

Celestron CGE Pro 1100 Computerised SCT Cassegrain Telescope

 

The Celestron CGE Pro 1100 Computerised Telescope features a wide 11 inch aperture size which gives the user 40% more light gathering capability than the 9.25 inch! With so much power in your hands, you would still be able to transport it around to the darker skies of the country as the optical tube only weighs 27.5 lbs. Top-Tier German Equatorial Mounted Telescopes The new and improved mount that accompanies this telescope has an increased payload capacity that allows it to securely and easily handle the 11” telescope even when loaded with accessories and cameras. Even if you are just starting out in the field of astronomy, the softwares and alignment procedures on this telescope is so easy to use that you will find yourself progressing in no time. The All Star Polar Alignment will help you align your telescope using any bright star in the sky while the No-Tool polar alignment has hand knobs so that you can adjust the Altitude and Azimuth coordinates conveniently. Uninterrupted imaging is now possible with this mount as it provides extended tracking past the Meridian of up to 20 degrees while the mount now has a maximum slew speed of over 5°/per second to suit all your tracking needs. The CGE Pro has the ability to center a star in your eyepiece or CCD within 5 arc minutes. The advanced point features of the NexStar system such as Calibration stars, Sync and Precise GoTo further improves pointing accuracy to as low as 1 arc minute in the targeted sky region. With all these features, the CGE Pro offers great balancing and stability for all astro-imaging enthusiasts. Astrophotographer's Choice The Celestron CGE Pro performs quite well for long exposure photography with most CCD devices or photographic equipment. High end image quality is delivered by its superbly crafted optical system combined with premium StarBright XLT coatings. Access its database of 40,000 celestial objects and you'll be occupied for hours on end. The Celestron CGE Pro Telescopes have always been favored by astrophotographers. Its portability was designed for quick assembly making it easy to be stored and to be transported to your favourite sky-watching spot. It has been engineered to maximize support for the telescope and to reduce vibrations so that the telescope maintains its balance. Being GPS compatible, use the built-in real time clock with one of Celestron's GPS accessory, and these telescopes will keep track and remember their exact location and time without having to enter the information into the hand control. Celestron CGE Pro 1100 Computerised Telescope Features: - 11" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope - Celestron premium StarBright XLT coatings - CGE PRO computerized Equatorial mount - Schmidt-Cassegrain mechanism that moves the primary mirror to adjust focus is supported by two pre-loaded ball bearings, minimizing the ""mirror flop"" typical of bushing focus mechanisms - Heavy duty stainless steel tripod adjustable from 38 - 55" - 9x50 finderscope to help accurately find objects - Star diagonal provides more comfortable viewing position when observing objects that are high in the sky
