About Celestron

Celestrons new AC Adapter, made exclusively for our CGEM and CGE Pro mounts, is designed to conveniently provide continuous power to your mount when an AC outlet is available. The barrel connector on the DC plug threads directly onto the mounts power jack and prevents power-offs due to inadvertent cable pulls. It delivers up to 5 Amp @ 12 VDC, which gives you plenty of power to run our biggest mounts loaded with heavy equipment. In addition, the switching-type AC-to-DC power adapter provides more power with less weight than a transformer-style power adapter.

works perfect for Celestron Advanced VX mount


Celestron AC Adapter


from Brook Park, Ohio  -  Avid Adventurer

I'm using this 5 amp adapter on my Advanced Vx mount. Great not having to be hooked up to a battery when Ac power is available.


Much easier than using a car battery!


from Litchfield CT  -  Casual/ Recreational

I do most observing within 100 feet of power outlets. This adapter is enormously easier to use than a heavy car battery. Works perfectly with my Advanced VX mount.

Works great!


from Central California  -  Avid Adventurer

Essential in my opinion for the CGEM mount. It threads onto the mount so that it doesn't work it's way loose while slewing around the night's sky. Worth every penny, but honestly, it should have come with the mount instead of the DC power adapter. But that's just my (no so) humble opinion. Clear Skies
