About this product

Model:  Celestron_CGEM_mount-1
Part Number:  91526

The Celestron CGEM mount is essentially the next step up from the ubiquitous Skywatcher NEQ6 PRO and sits neatly between the Celestron Advanced Series CG-5 and the CGE PRO.

Capable of carrying Celestron’s higher-end SCT optical tubes (up to 11") securely.

New innovative All-Star (patent pending) Polar alignment procedure. All-Star allows users to choose any bright star, while the software calculates and assists with polar alignment.  Another great feature that is sure to please astroimagers is the Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PEC) which will allows users to train out the worm gears periodic errors. The mount retains the PEC recordings.

The CGEM will track objects well past the Meridian (imaginary line passing from North to South) for uninterrupted imaging through the most ideal part of the sky. The CGEM mount has a robust database with over 40,000 objects, 400 user defined programmable objects and enhanced information on over 200 objects.
