Engineered to deliver sharp and clear distortion-free views, the Celestron EdgeHD 14" f/11 Aplanatic Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope
represents the largest aperture in the EdgeHD series and is an ideal
choice for observation, astrophotography, and imaging objects beyond our
solar system with exceptional sharpness and resolution, as well as
magnification potential. It features an aplanatic Schmidt-Cassegrain
optical system consisting of a corrector plate, a spherical primary
mirror, and a secondary mirror along with a set of field-flattening
lenses integrated into the baffle tube. Complementing the EdgeHD system
is the proprietary StarBright XLT optical coating system, which improves
light transmission and reflectivity across the entire visual spectrum.
The combination of EdgeHD and StarBright XLT produces bright and clear
high-resolution images with true color rendition across the entire field
of view without distortion, aberrations, or off-axis comas.
for imaging, the internal focusing system features a mirror support
clutches to ensure proper alignment and mirror locks to avoid accidental
defocusing during long-exposure astrophotography. The optical tube is
outfitted with an oversized 2" visual back to ensure large imaging
sensors are completely covered to avoid vignetting. For visual
observations, a 2" star diagonal is included along with a 23mm
wide-angle eyepiece that yields a respectable 170x power. A reducer
adapter is provided to allow the use of smaller and more common 1.25"
eyepieces and accessories. The EdgeHD 14 is offered here without a mount
or tripod for users who already have a reliable support system and are
looking to upgrade or add to their existing gear, but it comes with a
large CGE dovetail plate that is compatible with Losmandy saddles.
