Astro-PhotoGraphy Cassegrains

Celestron strikes again with the high priced EdgeHD 800 CGEM Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope, in the same family as the previous scope but costing a bit less by comparison. This 8 inch aperture telescope does not hide the fact that it uses the same Schmidt-Cassegrain technology as the last product, without a loss in detail or quality. You’ll get the same flat focal plane that is necessary for accurate astrophotography.

The same goes for the EdgeHD’s coma-free cassegrain optics with the built in flattener that not only gives you a better picture, but keeps things professional without you having to mess around with the settings. Aberration free images are the norm for this scope no matter how far out into the galaxy you peek. Even telescopes that have the same aperture of the EdgeHD 800 can’t produce images that are as sharp, due to the quality of optics between the two. Even without counting in natural light, there is a huge difference in the amount of detail you will see on any given night with this product.

And like all EdgeHD models, if you move around a lot the adjustment settings are a lot more forgiving. This includes a mirror lock so that you don’t have to spend precious minutes readjusting the built in mirror on every move you make. Product weight is a good stable 110 pounds including the mount, so it will take a really strong gust to knock it off of the base. Getting started you can align it using the stars, and for the customers that become more advanced, polat aligning brings you into the realm of what is necessary for astrophotography. For the serious buyer that wants to save a little money, this could be the perfect scope for their adventures, and worth a second or third look.
