Celestron CGEM II GoTo Mount with stainless steel tripod
A fresh update to the venerable CGEM mount, the CGEM II has a contemporary, attractive, bold appearance and is capable of carrying Celestron’s higher-end SCT optical tubes (up to 11") securely and vibration free, which is ideal for both imaging and visual observing. Capable of holding 40 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.

CGEM II was designed to be ergonomically friendly with large altitude and azimuth adjustment knobs for quick and easy polar alignment adjustment. The internal RA and DEC motor wiring provides a clean look and an easy and trouble free set up.

The CGEM II series features Celestron’s innovative All-Star Polar alignment procedure. All-Star allows you to accurately polar align the mount using any star, even if the celestial pole cannot be seen. Another great feature of the CGEM II sure to please astroimagers, is the Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PEC) which will allow users to train out the worm gears periodic errors, while the mount retains the PEC recordings.

For objects near the meridian (imaginary line passing from North to South), the CGEM II will track well past the Meridian for uninterrupted imaging through the most ideal part of the sky. The CGEM II mount has a robust database with over 40,000 objects, 100 user defined programmable objects and enhanced information on over 200 objects. Celestron´s CGEM II mount is the perfect fit between the Advanced VX Series and CGX Series.

Can I work with a dual mount??

Answer from Teleskop-Service:
Yes, every Celestron GoTo mount can be used with a dual mount, where the telescopes are rotated 90°.

The software has the option (OTA Orientation), this menu item can be found either under Utilities or under Settings. There you can choose if the tube points to north (default) or to east or west when the mount is in the home position. You have the home position when the index marks are in line.

"Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit der Montierung. Der Aufbau und die Inbetriebnahme haben ohne Probleme funktioniert. Für den mobilen Einsatz ist die Montierung nicht gerade leicht. Das sollte man beim Transport berücksichtigen. "
