Product Details

  • The CGEM-II 1100 EdgeHD Telescope by Celestron is a 279 mm (11-inch)Aperture corrected flat-field Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope with a CGEM II computerized German equatorial mount atop a sturdy tripod.  This 11-inch EdgeHD optical system gathers 40% more light than the 9.25-inch EdgeHD and 89% more than the 8-inch. At 28 lb, this OTA is still portable enough to take out to your favorite dark sky spot.

    CGEM-II 1100 EdgeHD Features 

    Ergonomic Design - The Celestron CGEM-II mount 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 provide a clean look and an easy and trouble-free set-up.

    Innovation All-Star allows users to choose any bright star, while the software calculates and assists with polar alignment. Its Periodic Error Correction (PEC) allows users to train out the worm gears periodic errors, while the mount retains the PEC recordings. Furthermore, its dual saddle has the capacity to mount either CGE-Pro style Dovetails or CGE-5 Dovetails.

    Performance - For objects near the Meridian (imaginary line passing from North to South), the Celestron CGEM mount will track well past the Meridian for uninterrupted imaging through the most ideal part of the sky. The CGEM-II mount has a robust database with over 40,000 objects, 400 user-defined programmable objects and enhanced information on over 200 objects.
