    Celestron CGX Equatorial 1100 Rowe-Ackermann Astrograph Telescope:
    Celestron CGX Equatorial 1100 Rowe-Ackermann Astrograph Telescope is specifically designed for astrophotography and astroimaging with a large 11" aperture and fast f/2.2 focal ratio. The OTA is being offered by itself without a mount, and comes with a Celestron CGEM-style dovetail plate for use on compatible mounts and tripods. Using 4-element rare-earth optical glass lenses ensures accurate colour rendition and eliminates aberrations such as coma and field curvatures. The improved StarBright XLT multi-coating system, which includes anti-reflection coatings on the lenses and highly-reflective coatings on the mirrors, increases light transmission throughout the entire optical path. A 12V MagLev fan reduces cool down time and provides optimal airflow through the optical tube while filtering harmful dust from the interior.

    The 43.3mm imaging circle is made to cover today's large DSLR and CCD imaging sensors to capture full-frame shots with vignetting, while a fast focal ratio reduces exposure times without sacrificing image quality and gives the user more time for multiple shots of the same object for layering or with different filters. A custom-designed FeatherTouch micro focus system has a 10:1 reducer with linear brass focuser bearing to enable very precise focusing to clearly resolve topographic details on the Moon or split double stars, and reveal details of most other celestial objects in between. Since this OTA is designed as an imaging scope, a 42mm T-thread camera adapter and 48mm camera adapter are provided.

    Features: Celestron CGX Equatorial 1100 Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph Telescope

    11" RASA optical tube assembly
    CGX computerized equatorial mount
    Astrograph Features:
    Ultra-fast, 11-inch f/2.2 optical design with rare-earth glass for images free of false color, coma, and field curvature. Cuts imaging time by more than half
    Expansive 43.3 optimized image circle maintains pinpoint stars to the far corners of even the largest astroimaging sensors, while the usable field extends even further to 52 mm for larger format sensors.
    Custom engineered linear brass focuser bearing reduces image shift, while dual-speed 10:1 FeatherTouch Micro Focus Knob provides the most precise focusing
    Quiet, high-output 12V MagLev fan reduces cooldown time and blocks dust
    Common camera adapters (T-thread and M48) included for easy attachment to popular CCD and DSLR cameras
    Computerized Mount Features:
    All-new design, sturdier and more rigid with quicker dampening time
    Increased load capacity to 55 lbs
    Improved motors provide more torque, better slewing and tracking under heavy loads
    Heavy Duty belt-drive system minimizes backlash while providing smooth motor operation under heavy loads
    Spring-loaded brass worm wheel and stainless steel worm gear reduce friction and provide optimum gear mesh
    Internal cabling for worry-free remote operation. Power input and accessory ports remain stationary while the mount slews to avoid snags
    Internal hard stops for both axes prevents cable tension and tripod strike
    Internal optical sensors on both axes for simple and safe remote operation
    Home sensors allow the mount to always start in the index position regardless of orientation before a power reset
    Limit sensors automatically shut off slewing or tracking before reaching the hard stop fail safe
