Details

Celestron's EdgeHD optics takes the Schmidt-Cassegrain system and minimizes the coma at the edge of the field of view, making the optics much better suitable for very professional high-end astrophotography. When coma occurs, stars at the edge of the field of view don't appear pinpoint. The EdgeHD ensures that high definition pinpointed images are not only in the center, but at the very edges as well. Since this is a catadioptric design, therefore using mirrors and corrective plates, taking aspects from both reflectors and refractors, telescopes like the EdgeHD 800 naturally result in having a slower end focal ratio of f/10, which is an excellent specification to have when viewing or imaging planets or any other object will high surface brightnesses at smaller field of views. Celestron's built in Fastar system uses a removable secondary mirror to transform the optical tube into a f/2 which is an outstanding fast focal ratio for deep sky observing! With a fast focal ratio like this, the EdgeHD 800 can accommodate very large CCD chips because it allows for bigger pixel size without as much risk of blooming and shorter exposure times.

EdgeHD is an aplanatic Schmidt telescope designed to produce aberration-free images across a wide visual and photographic field of view. The optical system was designed to reduce more than just off-axis star coma, but also to give an astrograph quality flat focal plane all the way to the edge of the field of view.
