Better astrophotos that help you discover the sky in a new way.
What is it that drives astrophotographers time and again? It is the fascination of depicting the sky in its most beautiful colours and shapes. With this apochromat, you can do just that. The premium ED glass and a colour-pure image make for enjoyable observations with fine details that would not be possible with basic optics. Rediscover the sky.
The highlights at a glance:
The mount head weighs only 8.2 kg, yet can support a payload of up to 18 kg. This extremly good payload to weight ratio of 2.5 makes the CEM40 versatile. You can carry it to your favoriert place under a dark sky or at your backyard observatory with a relatively small pier.
But there are more advantages:
The GoTo-Technology features a Go2Nova 8407+ controller with integrated heater for its large display, a 212,000 object library, integrated 32-channel-GPS and ST-4 auto guiding port.
Another great feature besides the center-balance is the ultra-quiet low power consumption stepper motor drive systems. Both models of the CEM40 are precise trackers, the CEM40-EC version delivering <0.25 arcsecond accuracy with its high-resolution encoder and its real time periodic error correction (RPEC).
The CEM40 is a extremly versatile and advanced mount.
