TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION
SkyAlign™
Ideal for beginners and advanced
users alike, SkyAlign makes aligning
a computerized telescope fast, easy,
and accurate. Simply point at any
three bright objects in the sky and
the telescope aligns itself. From there,
navigation and tracking is as easy as
pushing a button.
EdgeHD™ Optics
Celestron’s revolutionary aplanatic
EdgeHD optics reduce off-axis star
coma while providing an astrographquality flat focal plane all the way to
the edge of the field of view. The
result is a focal plane more than
three times flatter than a standard
Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope
and dramatically flatter than
other competing coma-free designs,
guaranteeing sharp stars across
today’s largest CCD sensors.
All-Star™ Polar Alignment
Get ready for a night of astroimaging
faster than previously thought
possible. Once your telescope is
aligned, All-Star Polar Alignment
lets you use any bright star listed in
the NexStar+ hand control to assist
in mechanically aligning your mount
with the North Celestial Pole through
a straightforward centering process,
so you spend less time aligning and
more time imaging.
2
StarBright™ XLT Coatings
One of the most important factors in a
Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope is its
transmission — the percentage of light
that reaches the focal plane. To
increase transmission, Celestron
engineers developed proprietary
StarBright XLT anti-reflective optical
coatings, which we apply to all
the mirrors and lenses in the
optical system. The StarBright XLT
coatings on the Schmidt corrector
lens allow an impressive 97.4%
transmission, enhancing views for
visual observers and allowing more
light to reach the CCD sensor
during astronomical imaging.

LiFePO4 Battery Chemistry
Lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4)
boasts an un-recharged shelf
life of 10 years compared to 3
years for the lithium-ion and 6-9
months for a sealed lead-acid
battery. LiFePO4 can be charged
and discharged 2000 times
compared to only 500 for a lithium
ion battery and 300 for sealed leadacid designs so the batteries will
last as long as the telescope you use
it with. LiFePO4 uses phosphates
instead of environment ally
hazardous elements like cobalt
or lead commonly found in other
rechargeable batteries, it can
withstand higher temperatures
than
lithium-ion
designs,
and will not be a fire danger if a cell
is accidentally punctured.

ROWE-ACKERMANN
SCHMIDT ASTROGRAPH
THE ULTIMATE ASTROIMAGING TOOL, the
Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph cannot be used for
visual observing at all. It was optimized as a complete
system for wide field imaging. Just attach your DSLR
or CCD camera to the front of the telescope and you’re
ready to produce the next generation of award-winning
astrophotos.
Horsehead Nebula by Jimmy Walker with RASA
Capturing impressive deep-sky astroimages is easier than ever with Celestron’s Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph,
the perfect companion to today’s top DSLR or astronomical CCD cameras. This fast, wide-field f/2.2 system offers two huge advantages over
traditional f/10 astroimaging: better apparent tracking and shorter exposures. That means you’ll create better-looking astroimages in a fraction of
the time, even without the use of an autoguider.
The Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph builds on the legacy of Celestron’s Schmidt Camera, which allowed astrophotographers to produce
images on film in the 1980s. Today, with CCD sensor sizes as large as film—or larger—the Schmidt Astrograph offers a full 43.4 mm optimized
image circle to capture pinpoint, diffraction-limited stars on the largest imaging chips.
The Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph features newly designed optics with 4-element rare-earth glass for images free of false color and
aberrations like coma and field curvature. Meanwhile, a 12V MagLev fan reduces cool down time and provides optimal airflow through the
optical tube. Advanced features like a custom engineered linear brass focuser bearing and FeatherTouch Micro Focus Knob allow you to make
the fine adjustments you need to capture the perfect shot.

EDGEHD
™
OPTICS
With the advent of large CCD sensors and ultra-wide field
eyepieces, Celestron’s engineers set out to develop a completely
flat-field optical system. The result was EdgeHD: an aplanatic Schmidt
telescope free of the aberrations of field curvature and coma. When
you look through an EdgeHD telescope, you’ll see crisp stars all the
way to the edge of the field of view—no streaky or doughnut-shaped
stars. If you’re an astroimager, you can be confident in your EdgeHD,
because every single unit must pass a photographic test before
leaving our factory. A man-made star is tested on all corners of a fullframe 42 mm CCD sensor for a sharp, round, pinpoint appearance
every time.
+ Astrograph-quality optical technology at an affordable price
+ Pinpoint stars all the way to the edge of a full-frame CCD sensor
+ Available in 8- to 14-inch apertures
Astroimaging is one of the most rewarding activities amateur
astronomers can participate in. EdgeHD optics can produce
results that were only attainable by professional level (and
professionally priced!) equipment as little as a decade ago.
Hundreds of thousands of amateur astronomers now spend
their time under the night sky, capturing stunning images of the

The aplanatic Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope produces a coma-free
focal plane more than three times flatter than a standard SCT, as well
as dramatically flatter than other competing coma-free designs, for
sharp images all the way to the edge of the field of view. Premium
StarBright XLT coatings maximize light transmission.

SOLAR SYSTEM IMAGERS
NexImage 10 is our first NexImage series camera to incorporate USB 3.0
SuperSpeed! With more than ten million pixels coupled with high speed data
transmission, the NexImage 10 produces clear and detailed planetary images like
never before. With super small 1.67µm pixels, smaller telescopes with shorter focal
lengths are still going to yield tremendous planetary detail. It’s one of the best
valued, high-res USB 3 planetary imaging cameras on the market.
+ A great way to get started with astroimaging, especially if you live in a lightpolluted area
+ One-shot color imagers that replace the 1.25” eyepiece on your telescope
and connect to your PC via USB 2.0
+ Contains everything you need to get started, including Celestron’s easy-touse software suite. Simply point your telescope at the Moon or a planet and
record a quick video. The software analyzes each frame of video, throws away
the fuzzy ones, and perfectly aligns the remaining images. Also works great
for imaging the Sun (requires a solar filter)
