Celestron put together the CGX-L Equatorial 925 EdgeHD 9.25" f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain GoTo Telescope to provide a complete observational platform that includes a large-aperture optical tube assembly (OTA), the NexStar+ computer hand controller, an updated motorized equatorial mount and tripod, plus 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.

Optical Tube

  • 9.25" (235mm) aperture
  • f/10 focal ratio
  • 2350mm effective focal length
  • Aplanatic Schmidt-Cassegrain optical design
  • EdgeHD field-flattener aplanatic design eliminates spherical aberration, field curvature, and off-axis star coma to improve resolution, sharpness, and clarity across the entire field of view, especially at the edges
  • Diffraction-limited SCHOTT glass reduces internal light loss to improve color, clarity, and sharpness
  • StarBright XLT optical coatings
  • Flexible tension clutches hold the primary mirror in place to reduce image shift without putting any force or pressure on the mirror assembly, keeping subjects centered
  • Internal mirror locks prevent accidental adjustment to focusimportant during long-exposure astrophotography
  • Integrated 95-micron mesh filter allows hot air to be released from behind the primary mirror without dust getting in, to prevent mirror distortion due to uneven surface temperatures
  • Resolution: 0.59 arcsec (Rayleigh); 0.49 arcsec (Dawes)
  • Secondary mirror obstruction: 3.35" (85mm); 36% by diameter; 13% by area

StarBright XLT System

  • Maximizes light transmission through optical path
  • Improves color rendition, contrast, sharpness, resolution, and brightness
  • Broadband system provides flat wavelength transmission across the entire visual spectrum
  • Multi-layer mirror coatings with layers of aluminum, SiO2 (quartz), and TiO2 (titanium dioxide)
  • Multi-layer anti-reflective corrector plate coatings with layers of MgF2 (magnesium fluoride) and HfO2 (hafnium dioxide); hafnium has a wider band-pass than the commonly used titanium
  • High-transmission water white glass corrector plate limits light loss due to internal absorption

Mounting

  • OTA only; mount and tripod required for proper use
  • Large CGE (Losmandy-style) dovetail plate

Included Accessories

Visual Back:

  • Standard Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope (SCT) threads
  • 2" eyepiece/accessory holder
  • Use for prime focus or projection astrophotography with optional adapters

Eyepiece:

  • Luminos-series wide-angle
  • 82° field of view
  • 2"-diameter barrel
  • Accepts most 2" eyepiece filters
  • 23mm focal length yields 102x power
  • Parfocal with all Luminos eyepieces, allowing it to be changed out with other Luminos eyepieces without having to adjust the focus
  • Retractable eyecup for use with or without eyewear

Reducer adapter:

  • 2"-to-1.25" reducer adapter allows the use of smaller eyepieces and accessories in visual back or diagonal

Diagonal:

  • 90° angle puts head in comfortable viewing position
  • Threaded for direct connection to OTA without the need for the visual back
  • 2" eyepiece/accessory holder
  • Star diagonal corrects image horizontally, but not vertically

Finderscope:

  • Low 9x magnification preserves wide field of view to more easily find alignment or guide stars
  • Large 50mm aperture helps to see dimmer objects and stars for easier star-hopping navigation
