Product Description

Celestron CGEM 925 Schmidt Cassegrain Computerized Telescope

 

Celestron CGEM - 925 Computerized Telescope features our high-end 9.25" Schmidt Cassegrian OTA with XLT coatings mounted on our brand new CGEM™ mount. The Celestron CGEM™ mount has a fresh, attractive, bold appearance and is capable of carrying Celestron’s higher-end SCT optical tubes (up to 11") securely and vibration free which is ideal for both imaging and visual observing. Ergonomic Design - CGEM was designed to be ergonomically friendly with large Altitude and Azimuth adjustment knobs for quick and easy polar alignment adjustment. The internal RA and DEC motor wiring provides a clean look and an easy and trouble free set up. Innovation - The CGEM series has a new innovative Polar alignment procedure called All-Star™ (patent pending). All-Star allows users to choose any bright star, while the software calculates and assists with polar alignment. Another great feature of the CGEM, sure to please astroimagers, is the Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PEC) which will allow users to train out the worm gears periodic errors, while the mount retains the PEC recordings. Performance - For objects near the Meridian (imaginary line passing from North to South), the CGEM will track well past the Meridian for uninterrupted imaging through the most ideal part of the sky. The CGEM mount has a robust database with over 40,000 objects, 400 user defined programmable objects and enhanced information on over 200 objects. Celestron's CGEM mount is the perfect fit between the Advanced Series and CGE Series. Offering the portability of the Advanced Series and the precision of the CGE. 

 

Celestron CGEM 925 Schmidt-Cassegrain Computerized Telescope Features: 

High Levels of Optic Clarity and Sharpness

Large 9.25" aperture offers outstanding light gathering capabilities

Premium Celestron StarBright XLT Optic Coatings

Easy and automated night sky viewing with computerized equatorial mount

Ultra Sturdy 2" steel tripod with Accessory Tray

Comfortable viewing position for objects high in the sky with star diagonal

6x30 finderscope accurately finds objects

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 

 

CGEM 925 Computerized Mount Features: 

40,000 object database with over 100 user-definable objects and expanded information on over 200 objects

Proven NexStar computer control technology

New "All-star" Polar alignment uses any bright star for a quick and accurate Polar alignment

 

Software Features include:

Mount Calibration, Database Filter Limits, Hibernate, five Alignment Procedures, and user-defined slew limits

Flash upgradeable hand control software and motor control units for downloading product updates over the Internet

Custom database lists of all the most famous deep

sky objects by name and catalog number; the most beautiful double, triple and quadruple stars; variable star; solar systems; objects and asterisms

Permanent programmable periodic error correction (PEC) corrects for periodic tracking errors inherent to all worm drives

Drive Motors

Low Cog DC Servo motor with integrated optical encodes offer smooth, quiet operation and long life. The motor armatures are skewed to minimize cogging which is required for low speed tracking.

Internal Cable wiring for trouble-free setup and transportation

Designated six-pin RJ-12 modular jack, ST-4 compatible guide port

Autoguide port and auxiliary ports located on the electronic plate for long exposure astrophotography

Double line, 16-character Liquid Crystal Display Hand Control with backlit LED buttons for easy operation of goto features

RS-232 communication port on hand control to control the telescope via a personal computer

Includes NexRemote telescope control software, for advanced control of your telescope via computer

Precision machined 40mm diameter steel Polar shafts supported by multiple tapered roller bearings and ball bearings.
