Product description:

The 1100HD system combines the new Advanced VX computerized equatorial mount with Edge-HD optics.

With 28cm of aperture and StarBright XLT coatings, it gathers over 1600 times more light than the naked eye alone. The excellent image sharpness means it is also an excellent system for astrophotography!

The EdgeHD optical system combines all of the compact power popularized by the SCT with an improved high definition optical system for wide field, astrograph quality images. As a visual instrument, EdgeHD optics deliver pinpoint images even with your widest field eyepiece. You can search for all of the Messier Catalog objects, and see hundreds of other NGC, IC and Caldwell objects with amazing clarity. For astro imaging, EdgeHD optics produce aberration-free images across your favorite CCD or DSLR camera. All EdgeHD optics are designed to produce an extremely flat focal plane precise enough to match the strict tolerances of the largest commercial CCD detectors, allowing stars to be in tight focus to the very edge of the chip.

It is not only important which telescope you buy, but also where you buy it.

We provide extra help:

  • We are a leading telescope dealer and know these instruments like the back of our hands.
  • We are always very happy to offer our assistance after your purchase, should you encounter any problems with your telescope’s setup or operation.
  • Our ‘Telescope Basics’ booklet - an 80-page beginner's guide for our telescopes – is provided free of charge with every telescope we sell.
EdgeHD optics provide an image plane that is three times flatter than with a standard Schmidt-Cassegrain. That means that stars are diffraction limited imaged over the entire chip with a Nikon D3 or Canon 5D camera!
