About the Celestron 14"" CGE Pro

The Celestron CGE Pro 1400 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope is part of "Top-of-the-Line" German Equatorial mounted astronomical telescopes. The 11089 model features the premium StarBright XLT coatings and is FASTAR compatible for F/2 wide field imaging. This telescope is especially at home as a solid platform for long exposure photography with optional CCD cameras or photographic equipment; it is a serious scientific research tool.

German Equatorial mounts are recognized as being the superior choice for astrophotography because of their rock solid stability, simple balancing and easy accessibility for attaching equipment. With sophisticated software features like Hibernate function, the CGE Pro can maintain its star alignment night after night without needing to be re-aligned, making it an ideal instrument for a permanent observatory facility.
