Celestron saw an opportunity to simplify things considerably. The company took the power of a star map and combined it with an affordable set of telescopes and mounts. The secret high tech ingredient is, in fact, wonderfully low tech and completely fitting: a mirror.
The Celestron CGX-L is a robust, computerized equatorial mount with an impressive 75-lb payload capacity. This is an observatory-grade astrophotography mount. The deep sky astrophotography potential of the Celestron CGX-L is obvious, and I intend to experience this benefit first-hand.
