Celestron CGEM 1100 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope
The catadioptric Celestron CGEM 1100 telescope plus equatorial mount has been ergonomically designed and has a fresh, bold and attractive appearance. The mount is suitable for astrophotography as well as for "ordinary" observations. The CGEM 1100 comes with NexRemote software for the telescope to be used in combination with your PC. Moreover, the Celestron CGEM 1100 telescope is easy to (dis)assemble and transport.
The database of the Celestron CGEM 1100 contains over 40.000 celestial objects including Messier objects, the Caldwell Catalog, NGC systems, nebulae and planets. A special identification feature tells you where to look, but you can also take a tour through the sky. For example: point the telescope somewhere, let it identify the Messier objects and the Celestron CGEM 1100 telescope will show automatically the five nearest objects; that’s GoTo at its best!
The Celestron CGEM 1100 telescope features a revolutionary alignment method called All-Star Polar Alignment. Using the software you align the telescope by selecting a bright star; alignment is possible even without seeing the North Star.
