  • The CGX 1100 Edge HD package includes the Celestron CGX mount and new EdgeHD optical system.
  • The EdgeHD 11" optics produce a focal plane three-times flatter than the standard equivalent SCT telescope with diffraction limited stars to the very edge of the SBIG STL6303 field of view!
  • The CGX 1100 Edge HD has re-designed mechanics guaranteed to help you get the maximum performance from your instrument.
  • Database with over 40,000 objects, 100 user defined programmable objects and enhanced information on over 200 objects.
  • The CGX 1100 Edge HD can maintain its star alignment night after night without needing to be re-aligned, making it an excellent choice for a permanent observatory facility.
  • For a Limited Time, while Supplies Last, we will be including the C11METFST Model 'Bobs Knobs' Collimation knobs with this telescope at no additional charge! These knobs make Collimating your scope drastically easier, leaving the process far more efficient. See the video below for details!
  • OPT is offering a FREE Celestron Observer's Accessory Kit! A must-have for the new telescope owner looking for quality accessories for observing and basic Astro-Imaging with a DSLR camera.
  • This Kit includes:
  • Two high-quality Plossl eyepieces (6mm and 17mm) for high and moderate power viewing
  • Kodak Wratten #25 and #80A blue 1.25" eyepiece filters for increasing the contrast of planetary views
  • Neutral density Moon filter to increase contrast in lunar views by cutting back the birghtness of the image without changing its color
  • 3-in-1 Barlow/T-adapter, which can be used as a visual barlow, a basic T-adapter for connecting a DSLR camera, and a tele-converter for increasing the focal length of the telescope when attaching a DSLR camera
  • Microfiber lens cleaning cloth to keep your optics dust-free
  • Hard plastic carrying case holds all of these accessories with room for more of your own


Introducing the EdgeHD Telescope Series, Celestron’s dependable flagship telescope line- fused to their CGX Mount, the newest and greatest in German Equatorial mounts. With a proven telescope to mount atop it, the CGX is sure to provide you with some of the finest astronomical experiences you've had to date! Featuring Celestron's premium StarBright XLT coatings and 11" of aperture, this telescope gives you the brightest, clearest views whether observing planetary or deep-sky objects.

The CGX mount is the newest member of Celestrons fully computerized Equatorial mount series capable of carrying Celestron’s high-end 11" and 14" optical tubes. The CGE PRO style, 2.75" leg tripod holds even our 14" optics securely while dampening vibration, which is ideal for both imaging and visual observing. Capable of holding 55 lbs of payload and slewing at 5° per second, you will be able to instantly point to any of the celestial objects in the database.

German Equatorial mounts are recognized for their rock solid stability, simple balancing and easy accessibility for attaching accessories- and the CGX takes it to the next level after years of study and hard work. With sophisticated software features like the Hibernate function, the CGX can maintain its star alignment night after night without needing to be re-aligned, making it an excellent choice for a permanent observatory facility.

The Celestron CGX Mount is an innovative new design that improves on it's predesscors in every imaginable way. It's the product of over three years of innovative design and planning, and it shows. It's 

Ergonomic Design - The Celestrom CGX mount is incredibly ergonomic, from the convenient carrying handles to the easy to use and turn knobs. 

Splendid Engineering- This mount boasts drastically reduced backlash and improved stability. Incredibly rigid, this mount also boasts an improved motor system that greatly boosts the provided torque. It's simply superior to it's predesscors in every way.

Innovation - The Celestron CGX series boasts internal cabling that utterly bypasses the issue of cable twisting or tangling by letting you route all your own power supply and accessory cables into a convenient port on a part of the mount that moves- from which they enter into the mount, utterly contained, and reach everywhere they need to on the inside without any tangling issues. Neat and clean!

Performance - For objects near the Meridian (imaginary line passing from North to South), the Celestron CGX mount will track a full 20 degrees past the Meridian for uninterrupted imaging through the most ideal part of the sky. The CGX mount has a robust database with over 40,000 objects, utilizing a top quality Nexstar hand controller.

New Optical Design - The EdgeHD optical system takes all of the compact power popularized by the Schmidt Cassegrain Telescope (SCT) and combines it with an improved high definition optical system for wide field, astrograph quality images. As a visual instrument, EdgeHD optics deliver pinpoint images even with your widest field eyepiece. You can search for all of the Messier Catalog objects, and see hundreds of other equally interesting NGC, IC and Caldwell objects with amazing clarity. For astroimaging, the EdgeHD optics produce aberration-free images across your favorite CCD or DSLR camera. All EdgeHD optics are designed to produce an extremely flat focal plane precise enough to match the strict tolerances of the largest commercial CCD detectors, allowing all stars to be in tight focus to the very edge of the chip.

Diffraction Limited - Some companies boast that their telescopes give diffraction limited stars in the very center of the field of view. EdgeHD optics not only produce diffraction limited stars on axis, but maintain diffraction limited stars across the entire field of view of many of the most popular astrophotography cameras.

Mirror Locks – To hold the mirror in place and reduce image shift during imaging.

Tube Vents - Each vent has an integrated 60 micron micro-mesh filter allowing hot air to be released from behind the primary mirror.

Fastar Versatility – All EdgeHD optical tubes are equipped with a removable secondary mirror for fast f/2 CCD imaging. Not only does imaging in the FASTAR configuration allow for exposure times that are 25 times faster than at f/10, but also yields a field of view five times wider. The perfect combination for imaging your favorite wide field objects in a fraction of the time. (FASTAR imaging requires a third party lens assembly in place of the secondary mirror).

82° Eyepiece - EdgeHD 11" optical tubes come with Celestron's top of the line 2" barrel eyepiece. With a 23 mm focal length and 82° AFOV, you get an incredible combination of power and wide field of view. Plus this 6-element eyepiece is optimized to deliver pinpoint images when used with a flat field telescope.

Celestron's bleeding edge new CGX mount is the current pinnacle of German Equatorial Mount Engineering. Boasting a wide range of new and improved features, this mount is simply top quality.  It's just plain better than it's competition and predecessors. 

Superior mount performance combined with superior edge performance not only creates rounder, more pleasing stars but actually improves the resolution and limiting magnitude when compared to telescopes of equal aperture. When it comes to the Celestron HD series coupled with Celestron’s StarBright XLT coating group on every surface, EdgeHD optics gives you maximum light throughput across the widest visual and photographic spectrum... It's a vision you'll never forget.
