General Features:

  • 14"" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope
  • Celestron premium StarBright XLT coatings
  • CGE PRO computerized Equatorial mount
  • FASTAR compatible optical tube for f/2 imaging
  • Heavy duty stainless steel tripod adjustable from 38 - 55""
  • 9x50 finderscope to help accurately find objects
  • Star diagonal provides more comfortable viewing position when observing objects that are high in the sky

The German equatorial mount places the centre of gravity directly over the tri-pod legs to allow easy polar alignment using the optional equaatorial wedge. This proven deisng reduces the ""turning fork"" vibrations that can be associated with undersized fork mounts. The fully extendable tripod is made from the finest 2.75"" stainless steel and can be raised to a height of 55"". The tripod uses a dual leg support for maximum rigidity.

Being FASTAR compatible for f/2 wide field imaging, the Celestron CGE PRO 1400 FaStar Telescope makes a solid platform for long exposure astrophotography. Attach any high quality CCD camera or photographic equipment and it becomes a serious scientific tool. FASTAR compatibility is enabled by a removable secondary mirror that allows for fast f/2 CCD imaging. You get exposure durations that are 25 times faster than at f/11 and at the same time yields a FOV that is 5 times wider. This combination produces optimum imaging of wide field objects in the fraction of the time it takes with non-FASTAR devices.
