Features

The Celestron CGE 1400 (XLT) features a Schidmt-Cassegrain Telescope German Equatorial mounted astronomical telescopes. It offers German Equatorial mounts which place the center of gravity over the tripod legs and can be polar aligned without the use of an optional equatorial wedge. In addition to this, this design is said to reduce “tuning fork” vibration. This telescope features Schmidt-Cassegrain mechanism where it moves the primary mirror which adjusts focus supported by two pre-loaded ball bearings. This is said to minimize the “mirror flop” which is typical of bushing focus mechanisms. This telescope provides StarBright SLT coatings which shows high quality view through the optical system where three times of light gathers power. The Celestron CGE 1400 (XLT) features 9 x 50 finderscope which locates targeted objects or planets. The Star diagonal is said to provide a comfortable viewing position for observing objects that are high in the sky. This telescope offers 40,000 object databases with over 100 user-definable objects and expanded information on over 200 objects in the computerized mount features. It includes details on the surface of a planet; allow vision on Cassini’s Division in the rings of Saturn and distant planets. This telescope provides NexStar computer control technology and a GoTo system which provide precision of vision to 1.5 arcminutes. It also offers software features which include Compass calibration, Polar Alignment routine, Database Filter Limits, Hibernate, Auto North and Level, Quick Align and user-defined slew limits. In addition to this, it offers flash upgradeable hand control software and motor control units for downloading product updates over the Internet. The telescope features permanent programmable periodic error correction (PEC) which corrects periodic tracking errors inherent to all worm drives. The bearing and shaft comprises a stainless steel worm shaft of 0.4375 pitch diameter which is preloaded with two ball bearings. The No-slip clutch system offers pointing precision.

Additional features

The Celestron CGE 1400 (XLT) features autoguide port, PC port and auxiliary ports located on the electronic pier which provides long exposure astrophotography.
