Details

Getting the perfect mount and the perfect optical tube is key to a successful and memorizing stargazing experience. With a combination of Celestron's own and mighty CGEM DX Equatorial mount and 14" EdgeHD OTA, this is quite what the advanced amateur astronomer needs at their fingertips! The strapping capabilities of the Celestron's own CGEM DX Mount are simply jaw dropping! All of the features this mount comes with makes everything from alignment to tracking for astrophotography just one step easier, faster and more exciting! The CGEM DX sets itself aside from many other equatorial mounts because of its payload capacity and adjustable altaz design. With a 50 pound payload capacity, this mount can sustain the 11" and 14" optical tube assemblies with no issues, and yet still slew at 5 degrees a second! Using their own feature known as All-Star, Celestron's CGEM DX is exceptional and simple for polar alignment! All the user must do is slew to a bright star (farther from the NCP/SCP and closer to meridian the better) and adjust the altaz controls to align the mount with the NCP precisely prior to observing. The CGEM DX mount is simply one of the top on the list for astrophotography stability and performance. Astro-imaging fans will be thrilled to know that the mount can track accurately through the clearest part of the sky, the meridian so no astrophotgraphy session is miserably interrupted or failed. In addition, Periodic Error Correction is also supported to train out the worm gears to improve and reduce guiding errors. The GoTo controllers that Celestron implemented into this mount include a database of 40,000 celestial objects! These include named stars, planets and the moon, as well as Messier, NGC, and IC deep sky catalogs as well as information on 200 of those!

The CGEM DX 1400 HD includes a 14" EdgeHD based optical tube assembly. Some of the main key advantages of this optical design from Celestron are how well it can output pinpoint and sharp image of stars even at the edge of the field of view. The EdgeHD system takes the basic Schmidt-Cassegrain design a step further by making a focal plane three times flatter than standard Schmidt designs. This is a total plus for astrophotography because it ensures that stars will be pinpointed even on the edges of the field of view. Therefore, even astro-imagers using some of the largest CCD sensors, images will still uniformly be pinpoint.
