Celestron NexStar GT series of telescopes shares a common heritage in
features and function. Each NexStar telescope includes the latest state-of-the-art
computerized GoTo technology, amazingly easy-to-use features and ready-to-use
components. After the computer guides you through a simple set up, each telescope
will point itself to the object you choose from its stored database of astronomical
objects without referring to star charts!
Celestron NexStar i Series ushers in a whole new generation of intelligent
telescope design. Simple and friendly to use, the i series is a
fully upgradeable system, and can be equipped with the optional Computerized
Hand Control and CN-16 GPS Accessory for completely automated GoTo function.
Celestron NexStar GPS series is the culmination of years of engineering
research and development delivering the ultimate instrument in GoTo technology.
For the first time in a commercial telescope, Celestron combines an integrated
Global Positioning System with its legendary Schmidt-Cassegrain optics to deliver
the most advanced telescope on the market today. The NexStar GPS is so advanced
that after you turn it on, the internal GPS receiver links up and acquires information
from orbiting GPS satellites. With this information the system automatically
downloads the date and time and pinpoints its exact location on Earth.
Celestron CGE computerized series is Celestrons newest line of
observatory class Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes. Offered in 8", 91/4",
11" and 14" apertures, they all come mounted on the state of the art
CGE GoTo German Equatorial mount. The German Equatorial mount has long been
the favored choice of astronomy buffs and astrophotographers because of its
stability and portability. More stable because the center of gravity is directly
over the center of its base, more portable because it can be broken down into
smaller component parts for easy storage and transportation. For astrophotography,
the German Equatorial mount offers easier balancing, unlimited space at the
rear of the telescope tube to mount a camera, and whole sky access. Now you
can enjoy all of the NexStar software and database features with the extra stability
and portability of a German Equatorial mount.
