    Celestron CGX-L EQ 1100 Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph Telescopes:
    Celestron CGX-L EQ 1100 Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph Telescopes is 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.
