The astro-images on our web site demonstrate the imaging capabilities of the products used and are not intended to represent what you will see when you look through a telescope.
The Celestron CGE Pro Equatorial Mount can hold the heaviest of telescopes with ease (up to 90lbs). It is fully computerized with a database of over 40,000 celestial objects and features the simple to use All-Star Polar Alignment method of alignment.
