Description

The Celestron RASA Rowe Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph 11 in. Telescope with CGEM DX Mount is an observatory-quality astroimaging setup that can create better-looking astroimages in a fraction of the time! This package pairs the renowned Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph with a heavy-duty CGEM DX Mount with additional payload capacity and the ability to slew up to 50 pounds at up to 5 degrees per second on extra-large, 3-inch tripod legs for maximum stability. Capturing deep-sky imagery is easy with this 11-inch optical design with fast, wide-field f/2.2 system that offers better apparent tracking and shorter exposures than traditional f/10 astroimaging. With this level of technology, you won't even need an autoguider to create superior images! The Rowe Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph builds on the legacy of past cameras with improved image circle, focal length, and newly designed optics with 4-element rare-earth glass for imagery free of false color, aberrations like coma and field curvature, and minimal vignetting. More advanced features include a custom engineered linear brass focuser bearing and FeatherTouch Micro Focus Knob for fine adjustments when achieving that perfect shot. This astrograph is ideal for any of today's top DSLR or CCD cameras and includes a 42 mm T-thread and 48 mm camera adapters to make setup a breeze.
