Celestron CGEM DX Mount
The Celestron CGEM DX mount is the most recent member of Celestron's wholly computerized Equatorial mount range and capable of carrying Celestron’s high-end 11" and 14" optical tubes.
The CGE PRO style, 2.75" leg tripod holds 14" optics securely while dampening vibration, which is perfect for both imaging and visual observing.
Capable of holding 50 lbs of payload and slewing at 5° per second, it's possible to immediately point to any of the celestial objects in the database.
The CGEM DX was created to be ergonomically friendly with large Altitude and Azimuth adjustment knobs for fast and simple polar alignment adjustment.
The internal RA and DEC motor wiring creates a clean look and an easy and hassle free setup.
There is a new innovative Polar alignment procedure called All-Star™ which allows users to select any bright star, whilst the software calculates and assists with polar alignment.
An additional fantastic aspect of the CGEM DX certain to please astroimagers, is the Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PEC) which will enable users to train out the worm gears periodic errors, while the mount retains the PEC recordings.
For objects near the Meridian (imaginary line passing from North to South), the CGEM DX will track well past the Meridian for uninterrupted imaging through the most ideal part of the sky.
The mount has a robust database with over 40,000 objects, 100 user defined programmable objects and enhanced information on over 200 objects.
Redesigned electronics deliver constant regulated power to the motors making them capable of driving the telescope even when not perfectly balanced. This allows the CGEM DX to have the payload capacity of that of much larger mounts without sacrificing smooth tracking motion and pointing accuracy across the entire sky.
