Celestron CGEM-925 - 9.25" SCT on CGEM Equatorial Mount

Celestron's CGEM-925 features Celestron's high-end 9.25"
Schmidt-Cassegrian OTA with XLT coatings mounted on their CGEM mount.
The CGEM mount has a fresh, attractive, bold appearance and is capable
of carrying Celestron's higher-end SCT optical tubes (up to 11")
securely and vibration-free, which is ideal for both imaging and visual

Ergonomic Design - CGEM was designed to be
ergonomically friendly with large Altitude and Azimuth adjustment knobs
for quick and easy polar alignment adjustment. The internal RA and DEC
motor wiring provides a clean look and an easy and trouble free set up.

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

Performance - For objects near the Meridian (imaginary
line passing from North to South), the CGEM will track well past the
Meridian 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. Celestron's CGEM mount is the perfect fit between the Advanced
Series and CGE Series. Offering the portability of the Advanced Series
and the precision of the CGE.

Celestron CGEM-925 - 9.25" SCT Features:

  • 9.25" Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope

  • CGEM Computerized Equatorial Mount

  • Schmidt-Cassegrain mechanism that moves the primary mirror
    to adjust focus is supported by two pre-loaded ball bearings, minimizing
    the "mirror flop" typical of bushing focus mechanisms

  • Celestron's premium StarBright XLT coatings

  • 6 x 30 finderscope to help accurately find objects

  • Ultra Sturdy 2" steel tripod with Accessory Tray

  • 40,000 object database with 400 user-definable objects and expanded information on over 200 objects

  • Proven NexStar computer control technology

  • New "All-star" Polar alignment uses any bright star for a quick and accurate Polar alignment

  • Software Features include: Mount Calibration, Database
    Filter Limits, Hibernate, five Alignment Procedures, and user-defined
    slew limits

  • Flash-upgradeable hand control software and motor control units for downloading product updates over the Internet

  • Custom database lists of all the most famous deep-sky
    objects by name and catalog number; the most beautiful double, triple
    and quadruple stars; variable star; solar systems; objects and asterisms

  • Permanent programmable periodic error correction (PPEC) - corrects for periodic tracking errors inherent to all worm drives

  • Steel worm gear and 90 mm pitch diameter brass worm wheel

  • Drive Motors - Low Cog DC Servo motor with integrated
    optical encoders offer smooth, quiet operation and long life. The motor
    armatures are skewed to minimize cogging which is required for low speed

  • Internal Cable wiring for trouble-free setup and transportation

  • Designated six-pin RJ-12 modular jack, ST-4 compatible guide port

  • Autoguide port and auxiliary ports located on the electronic pier for long exposure astrophotography

  • Double line, 16-character Liquid Crystal Display Hand Control with backlit LED buttons for easy operation of goto features

  • RS-232 communication port on hand control to control the telescope via a personal computer

  • Includes NexRemote telescope control software, for advanced control of your telescope via computer

  • GPS Compatible with optional CN16 GPS Accessory


FULL DISCLOSURE OF SMALL ITEMS THAT ARE LESS THAN PERFECT:Some of the screws have minor small amounts of surface corrosion
The power cord has been repaired on the DC (low voltage side) but works perfectly.
