Observe dark skies in high resolution with the Celestron CGX 800 EdgeHD Equatorial Telescope. Its EdgeHD optical system provides clear and aberration-free images, while its StarBright XLT coatings ensure that maximum light is passed across the photographic spectrum. This Celestron EQ Telescope has an optical tube with vents and a 50-mesh filter to pass hot air through the primary mirror’s back.

Celestron CGX 800 EdgeHD Equatorial Telescope Key Features:

  • Flat field, aplanatic Schmidt-Cassegrain for competitive optical performance
  • EdgeHD optics produce a flat focal plane for visibly sharp images
  • Produces coma- and aberration-free images across the field of view
  • High edge performance for a high resolution, along with rounded and pleasing star images
  • F10 focal ratio for detailed observation of the sky
  • Cooling vents at the rear cell to release hot air from the back of the primary mirror
  • 50-mesh filter in the vent releases air, while preventing dust particles from entering
  • Flexible tension clutches minimise image shift during long exposure imaging
  • Aluminium tube for sturdy and durable performance
  • CGX mount with quick dampening time for stability and remote operations
  • Mount has a belt-drive system for smooth operations under heavy load
  • Tripod with 5 cm steel legs for stability on rough and uneven grounds
  • NexStar+ hand control with a huge database for better astronomical experience

    Smooth Performance

    The Celestron CGX 800 EdgeHD Telescope is lightweight enough to be carried anywhere, but its optical power is much more than the size. It is a flat field Schmidt-Cassegrain device with f10 focal length, which produces aberration- and coma-free images across the photographic field of view. The telescope produces a flat focal length and visibly sharp images across the skies. Its competitive performance creates pleasing, rounded images of stars with minimal magnitude and high resolution. Every surface of this telescope has StarBright XLT coatings to allow the passage of maximum light across the spectrum.

    Advanced Mechanics

    A competitive imaging telescope of today’s time, the CGX 800 EdgeHD is versatile enough to capture the detailed view of celestial objects. You can add a reducer lens to minimise the field of view with no compromise with the optical performance. The telescope features flexible rods to hold the mirror properly and minimise image shift during imaging. It also includes cooling vents on the rear cell to allow the hot air to be released from the back of the primary mirror. These vents feature a 50-mesh filter that prevents dust from entering the optics.

    CGX Mount and Tripod

    The telescope comes with an equatorial mount and tripod for better functioning. The mount is a rigid and sturdy addition with a load capacity of 25 kg and a quick dampening. Its smooth belt-drive motor function helps in better tracking and slewing during heavy loads with minimum backlash. The CGX tripod is a robust accessory to keep the telescope stable on rough and uneven surfaces. Its 5 cm legs with height index marks help in quick levelling while the carry handles are provided for easy transport and pickup. This tripod features a polar alignment adjustment for easy positioning and an optional polar axis finderscope.

  • FAQs:

    What is the magnification and focal length of the eyepiece?

    The eyepiece of this telescope has a 81x magnification and 25 mm focal length.

    Can this Celestron telescope adjust different focal ratios?

    The telescope has a native f10 focal ratio, but if you add a focal reducer, the focal ratio can be dropped down to f7. By adding a third-party accessory or secondary mirror, the focal ratio can be reduced to ultra-fast f2.

    What can I adjust in the accessory tray?

    The tray is spacious enough to hold two 5 cm eyepieces, three 2 cm eyepieces, a smartphone, and other accessories.

    Can I keep a track of the previous observations in this telescope?

    The Celestron telescope has a built-in real time clock that keeps the site information and time saved for future reference.

    Which information can I access from the NexStar+ database?

    The NexStar+ database has information regarding 100 programmable objects, 40,000+ objects, and elaborative information on more than 200 objects.
