Product Description

CELESTRON  -  EdgeHD 800 8"  SCT Optical Tube Assembly (OTA)

Celestron's EdgeHD optics takes the Schmidt-Cassegrain (SCT) system and minimizes the coma at the edge of the field of view, making the optics  suitable for very professional high-end astrophotography. When coma occurs, stars at the edge of the field of view don't appear as razor sharp as those in the center. The EdgeHD ensures that high definition pinpointed images are not only in the center, but at the very edges as well.  Aplanatic Schmidt-Cassegrain optical system. This compound, or catadioptric, light-path employs a combination of mirrors and lenses that offer a large, high-resolution aperture, a shorter tube length, and enhanced portability. 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 focal ratio of f/10, which is excellent for viewing or imaging planets or any other objects with high surface brightnesses at smaller fields of view. Celestron's built in Fastar system uses a removable secondary mirror to transform the optical tube into a f/2 focal ratio which is outstanding 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 chance of blooming and allows much shorter exposure times.
