Celestron CGE Pro 1400 HD Computerized Aplanatic Schmidt Telescope 11094 Product Info

The Celestron CGE Pro 1400 HD Computerized Telescope 11094 combines the state of the art CGE Pro Computerized Equatorial Mount with the EdgeHD 1400 Optical System. With more than 60% more light gathering power than the 11" telescope, imagethis observatory-class instrument is Celestron 's largest optical system in its class.Featuring premium StarBright XLT Coatings, this telescope is especially at home as a solid platform for long exposure photography with optional CCD cameras or photographic equipment; it is a serious scientific research tool. German Equatorial mounts are recognized as being the superior choice for astrophotography because of their rock solid stability, simple balancing and easy accessibility for attaching equipment. With sophisticated software features like the Hibernate function, the CGE Pro can maintain its star alignment night after night without needing to be re-aligned, making it an ideal instrument for a permanent observatory facility.

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 14" optics produces a focal plane three-times flatter than the standard equivalent SCT telescope with diffraction limited stars to the very edge of the SBIG STL6303 field of view!

Along with the EdgeHD optics, the Celestron CGE Pro 1400 HD Telescope has re-designed mechanics guaranteed to help you get the maximum performance from your instrument. The Celestron CGE Pro 14" 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 1400 HD Telescopes 11094 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.

I purchased this as a decent aperture, portable scope. It has met that expectation being easy to setup and no single piece beyond my ability to lift into place. The spotting scope's mount is a bit fragile. The fit of the centering pins is loose, and ...
