Celestron CGEM-1100 11"/280mm Catadioptric Telescope Kit

The Celestron CGEM-1100 11"/280mm Catadioptric Telescope Kit is an enormous fully-loaded scope with automatic "GO-TO" observing and professional imaging capacity. Its NexStar computerized hand controller makes simple viewing a breeze, even for beginners. The robust CGEM equatorial mount gives a rock steady base for imagery that's free from annoying jitters which rob even the best of optics, and it also learns over time to correct for the periodic tracking errors inherent in every telescope mount. The combination of 11" aperture with automated viewing at this price is impressive for all having dual interest in viewing and astrophotography.

Impeccable Design

The telescope optical tube assembly itself has Celestron's StarBright XLT optics standard, an advancement in multicoatings which allows brightness advantages nearly equivalent to a step-up in aperture. Celestron's 11" Schmidt-Cassegrain design has 170% more light gathering capacity then even their well-respected 8" models, and provides supremely-bright views of planets, galaxies, and deep space objects combined with the ability to image the smallest of stuff thanks to all that resolving capacity. The only bigger models are the 14" versions, which essentially require two people to set up and are practically unportable.

Better Rigidity

The CGEM equatorial mount is an evolved step in their equatorial designs, and as an equatorial mount it is designed for those with an interest in imaging. Its streamlined controls operate intuitively, with the rigidity needed for serious astrophotography results even in a large 11" scope.

Everything You Need

Everything you will need to begin observing immediately is included in this package. As delivered, the scope operates upon a vehicle's cigarette lighter port-but it can also be powered with the optional AC adapter or the Celestron Power Tank. Multicoated Starbright XLT optics in enormous 11" Schmidt-Cassegrain design are intended for deep sky observations. The heavy-duty German equatorial CGEM mount is well-suited to astrophotography. NexStar computerized hand controller gives you automatic locating to an enormous object database. It has a supremely-easy photo adaptation with complete collection of dedicated accessories
