Some say you couldn't ask for anything better for telescopes than Celestron, and the CGE and CGEM line are arguably the best Celestron has to offer. I've been an avid amateur astronomer for years, and it was definitely time for an upgrade for me. I went with the CGEM 1100 versus the 1100 HD and the DX 1100 HD to save a little cash, and I have not been disappointed at all. This 11 inch Schmidt Cassegrain still has amazing optics, and the All-Star computerized function met and even exceeded my expectations in terms of usability and reliability.
Only downfall is the bulk and weight, but still manageable and well worth it.
Pros: Quality, Durability, Relatively Easy Set-Up
Would recommend: Yes
