Celestron CGX 1100 overview

  • 1Description

Celestron put together the CGX Equatorial 1100 HD11" f/10 GoTo Telescope to provide a complete observational platform that includes a large-aperture OTA, the NexStar+ computer hand controller, a motorized equatorial mount, and an array of accessories to get you set up and observing the Moon, planets, and especially deep-sky subjects like nebulae, galaxies, and star clusters.

  • CGX GoTo EQ Mount with Tripod

    Celestron's CGX GoTo EQ Mount with Tripod improves on their venerable CGEM platform to provide users with a heavy-duty research-quality mount for larger OTAs, accessories, and imaging rigs. Engineered to carry a 55-pound payload, and outfitted with high-torque motors with a heavy-duty belt drive system to improve tracking stability and reduce backlash, it is able to smoothly and accurately track near and deep-sky objects for long periods of time. Its Vixen/Losmandy dual dovetail saddle makes the mount compatible with most plates in-use today. To provide a stable platform for the mount and your OTA, a heavy-duty stainless steel tripod is included that sports large 2" diameter legs, an accessory tray that doubles as a stabilizer, and an adjustment range from 47.25 to 77.5" including the head.

    The brains of the CGX EQ is the NexStar+ computer controller. Equipped with a database of 40,000 objects, including the planets, stars, nebulae, galaxies, and the complete Messier catalog, it can also be programmed with up to 100 custom user-defined objects and filters for custom object lists. Its intuitive menu-driven user interface allows you to observe the heavens with nine slew speeds and three tracking rates, plus anti-backlash compensation and Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PPEC) for smoother movements in the motors, and improved tracking over time. Features, such as guided tours, extended information on 200 popular objects, and multiple alignment options make the NexStar+ controller easy to use and invaluable to new users and experienced star-gazers.
