Celestron's CGE Pro 1100 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope is the second largest aperture in the CGE Pro Series. It has 40% more light gathering power than its precessor the 9.25" Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope. Covered with Celestron's own designed Starbright XLT coatings which improves light reflectivity performance on the mirror, this 9.25" optical tube is excellent for both visual observing as well as astrophotography. Since the Schmidt-Cassegrain optical design tend to have slow focal ratios, they're excellent for lunar and planetary imaging as well as narrow deep sky imaging. Since Schmidt-Cassegrain designs are considered catadioptric, they combine features of both refractors and reflectors, but don't suffer the optical consequences of either one. There is hardly any chromatic aberration and very little coma.

The CGE Pro Equatorial mount is designed to be useful for astrophotographers who want the best out of their images. The All-Star Alignment is the first step to this, helping to polar align the mount by using a series of star by star coordinates to determine how much the altitude and azimuth needs to be adjustment to polar align precisely. Once aligned, the mount has a stunning 5°/per second maximum slew rate (as well as 2 deg/s, 0.5 deg/s, 64x, 16x, 8x, 4x, 1x, 0.5x rates) that helps reduce the time needed to slew from object to object, therefore increasing the amount of viewing in one session. With an accuracy of 5 arc minutes on its own and up to 1 arc minute with additional pointing features, the CGE Pro is equipped with materials that compensate for inaccuracies in the mount for better astro-imaging observation.
