Celestron CGE Pro 1100 HD Computerized Telescope 11093 Product Info

The Celestron CGE Pro 1100 HD Computerized Telescope 11093 combines the state of the art CGE Pro Computerized Equatorial Mount with the EdgeHD 1100 Optical System. With an optical tube assembly weighing only 28 lbs., this telescope is imagestill portable enough to be taken to dark skies, and has 89% more light gathering power than an 8" telescope and 40% more than the 9.25". For astrophotography, the German Equatorial mount offers easier balancing, unlimited space at the rear of the telescope tube to mount a camera, and whole sky access. Now you can enjoy all of the NexStar software and database features with the extra stability and portability of a German Equatorial mount.

These Celestron Telescopes feature an optical system that takes all of the compact power popularized by the Schmidt Cassegrain Telescope (SCT) and combines it with an improved High Definition Optical System for wide field, astrograph quality images. As a visual instrument, EdgeHD optics deliver pinpoint images even with your widest field eyepiece. You can search for all of the Messier Catalog objects, and see hundreds of other equally interesting NGC, IC and Caldwell objects with amazing clarity. For astroimaging, the EdgeHD optics produce aberration-free images across your favorite CCD or DSLR camera. All EdgeHD optics on the telescope are designed to produce an extremely flat focal plane precise enough to match the strict tolerances of the largest commercial ccd detectors, allowing all stars to be in tight focus to the very edge of the chip. The EdgeHD 11" optics produces a focal plane three-times flatter than the standard equivalent SCT telescope with diffraction limited stars beyond the entire SBIG STL4020CM field of view!

Along with the EdgeHD optics, the Celestron CGE Pro 1100 HD Telescope has re-designed mechanics guaranteed to help you get the maximum performance from your instrument. The Celestron CGE Pro 11" HD Telescope features Mirror Locks that hold the mirror in place and reduce image shift during imaging. Also featured are Tube Vents, with each vent having an integrated 60 micron micro-mesh filter that allow hot air to be released from behind the primary mirror. All EdgeHD optical tubes are equipped with a removable secondary mirror for fast f/2 ccd imaging. Not only does imaging in the FASTAR configuration allow for exposure times that are 25 times faster than at f/10, but also yields a field of view five times wider. A perfect combination for imaging your favorite wide field objects in a fraction of the time. Celestron CGE Pro 1100 HD Telescopes 11093 come with Celestron 's top of the line Axiom eyepiece. With a 23mm focal length and 82° AFOV you get an incredible combination of power and wide field of view. Plus each Axiom eyepiece is optimized to deliver pinpoint images when used with a flat field telescope.

The mount arrived in three boxes, well packed. Manual left a lot to be desired but we figured it out. When we powered it up the Dec motor began to slew to the west and never stopped while the HC displayed an Error Code 17 message. Problem was loca...
