Discontinued Product

Manufactured by: Celestron

Details

This is a discontinued item. We suggest CGE Pro 1400 FASTAR Schmidt-Cassegrain Computerized Telescope as a replacement.

For astrophotographers looking for a good mount that will provide excellent stability and tracking, the CGE Pro by Celestron is definately one of the best. The worm gears built internally are the major driving forces that assist in accurate tracking and alignment. The All-Star method is an excellent alignment method because it relies on a star to star coordinate to properly align to the celestrial pole by adjusting altitude and azimuth which results in a very stable tracking, especially for astro-imaging purposes. When properly aligned, the CGE Pro has a maximum of 5°/per second slewing rate (along with 9 others) which increases the amount of objects that can be observed and therefore imaged in a given imaging or viewing session. The CGE Pro is also equipped with materials that compensate for inaccuracies in the mount for better astro-imaging observation.
