Summary


Celestron CGEM 1100 EdgeHD Computerised Telescope is the perfect marriage of high quality optical performance with pin point accuracy providing you with the best views for observation and astro-imaging. That’s not all, the CGEM 1100 also has the NexStar software loaded giving you auto alignment, error correction and a huge database of celestial objects.

Two High Performance Designs in One
The EdgeHD optical system takes all of the compact power popularized by the SCT and combines it with an improved high definition optical system. You get wide field, quality and pinpoint images even with your widest fieldpiece. You can view all of the Messier Catalog objects, and see hundreds of other equally interesting NGC, IC and Caldwell objects with amazing clarity.

Aberration-free images are produced across your favorite CCD or DSLR camera. It is designed to produce an extremely flat focal plane precise enough to match the strict tolerances of the largest commercial CCD detectors. This allows every star to be in tight focus right to the edge of the sensor chip.

It also has the ability to maintain diffraction limited stars across the entire FOV through most popular astrophotography cameras. Even at the very edge of a full frame camera chip, the EdgeHD 11" delivers star sizes of less than 2 arc seconds. The 11" optics produce a focal plane three-times flatter than the standard equivalent SCT telescope with diffraction limited stars. With the added FASTAR compatibility, exposure times that are 25 times faster than at f/10 can be achieved while yielding a field of view 5x wider. (FASTAR imaging requires a third party lens assembly in place of the secondary mirror).

CGEM Computerized Equatorial Mount .
Capable of carrying Celestron's higher-end SCT optical tubes securely and vibration free, this makes it ideal for both imaging and visual observing. Equipped with a new innovative Polar alignment procedure called All-Star™, you can choose any bright star and the software will still use it to calculate and assist you when conducting the polar alignment. Also included is the Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PEC) which will allow users to train out the worm gear's periodic errors, while the mount retains the PEC recordings.

It is now possible to get a better view of 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, 100 user defined programmable objects and enhanced information on over 200 objects. Gaze at this objects through the 23mm Axiom eyepiece that is included. Do not choose between power of wide FOVs when you can have both! A wide 82° AFOV is delivered with pinpoint images when you use it with a flat field telescope such as the CGEM EdgeHD Telescope
