Celestron 18780 overview

  • 1Description

The AC Adapter - 5 Amp (CGEM, CGE Pro) from Celestron is made exclusively for their CGEM and CGE Pro mounts. It is designed to provide continuous power to the mount when an AC outlet is available. The barrel connector on the DC plug threads directly onto the mount's power jack and prevents power-offs due to the cable being inadvertently pulled out. It delivers up to 5 Amp @ 12 VDC which is sufficient power to run the CGEM or CGE Pro mounts loaded with heavy equipment. The switching-type, AC-to-DC power adapter, provides more power with less weight than a transformer-style adapter.

  • Works with Celestron CGEM or CGE Pro only
  • Threaded barrel connector on DC plug prevents power-offs due to inadvertent cable pulls
  • Delivers up to 5A @ 12 VDC, plenty of power to run Celestron's biggest mounts with heavy loads
  • Switching-type AC-to-DC power adapter provides more power with less weight than transformer-style power adapter

    AC Adapter - 5 Amp (CGEM, CGE Pro) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well - stays cool I needed either a new cable or an adaptor as the plug is American. No problem to purchase at the local electronics hobby store. The transformer is 100-240volt, 50 to 60 cycle, like laptop and camera chargers so is usable worldwide. I tested the output voltage before plugging it into my CGEM DX mount. In Australia we are on 240v 50cycles and output was 12.2volts. I ran the unit for nearly 4 hours last night and it was cool to the touch at the end. Okay it was just tracking the C14 with a few minor tweaks, but clearly it was just cruising with this usage. What more can I say? You plug it in and it goes. The 'power connected' light is an unobtrusive faint green glow.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST have accessory! OK, first off, it works great, doesn't get hot and powers the mount just fine. But, for what it is, basically a 110 to 12V converter (in the USA), just like a laptop's, I feel it is overpriced. You're paying for the specialized charger to Advanced VX connection, that round twist on thingy. Seventy is too much, it should be around half that, but it is what it is and I'm sure they sell many of them! It also should be included in the kit as all you get is a cable with a cigarette style adapter for power, for the kit price you should get both. I, however, am unlikely to take my N-6 to any other locations and getting out a outdoor extension cord and plugging in this adapter is easier than pulling the car or truck and parking it close enough to use the included cable. So, tough it up and buy it, you do need it!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Another Celestron Problem Sorry, I cannot recommend anything Celestron - Too many defective products. This simple power supply had the 12V power plug polarity reversed out of the box and it would not operate anything. Cutting and splicing the 12V wires corrected the defect so the power block now can operate my telescope mount, but why should a customer be required to do that? B&H, however, shipped promptly and correctly, as usual. No complaints there. Jeff

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works As Expected Got it for a CGEM DX and a Nexstar 8SE. Work fine with both. The difference with the other Celestron AC adapter (# 18778) is that it is more powerful (5A instead of 2.5A), it has an AC ground, and the AC input is 100-240V (useful if you travel). Note that it is labeled for indoor use only.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Accessory to to power your mount. If your not in the field and/or near an A/C outlet, why use battery power when you can have all the steady power you need to move that mount. If your scope has a permanent pier, its a must! Glad I have the option now!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Re-alignment time saver!!! I kept losing the telescope star alignment when using a a power supply with out the locking tip and it quite frequently lost power during slewing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product... a must have... for backyard astronomers. Plenty of AMPS to spare for powered telescope accessories. Does NOT overheat even on prolonged usage and heavy load.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works As Advertised I use this AC adapter for my Celestron AVX mount. The adapter works as advertised. No complaints.
