Celestron CGEM DX 1400 HD 14" EdgeHD Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope 3910mm Focal Length -

The CGEM DX 1400 HD combines Celestron's newly designed CGEM DX Computerized Equatorial mount with its new EdgeHD optical system. With more than 60% more light gathering power than the 11" telescope, the CGEM DX 1400 is Celestron's largest optical system in its class. Featuring premium StarBright XLT coatings and 14" of aperture, this telescope gives you the brightest, clearest views whether observing planetary or deep-sky objects.
The CGEM DX mount is the newest member of 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 Celestron's 14" optics securely while dampening vibration, which is ideal for both imaging and visual observing. Capable of holding 50 lbs of payload and slewing at 5 deg. 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. With sophisticated software features like the Hibernate function, the CGEM DX can maintain its star alignment night after night without needing to be re-aligned, making it an excellent choice for a permanent observatory facility.
