The CGE Pro Computerised 1100 telescope is part of Celestron's line of observatory class German Equatorial telescopes. The German Equatorial Mount has long been the favoured choice for seasoned astronomers and astrophotographers because of its stability and portability. More stable because the centre of gravity is directly over the centre of its base and more potable because the telescope can be broken down into smaller component parts for easy storage and transportation.

Please Note: this product is available as a special order only. After you place your order, we will notify you within one business day of the expected delivery time. Unfortunately, no discounts are available for this product.
