Celestron Celestron EdgeHD 1400 CGE Pro Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope

The extremely large aperture Celestron Edge HD CGE Pro telescope is perfect for small faint deepsky objects. The advanced observer or astrophotographer will like the coma-free optics and field flattener insuring sharp focus to the edge of the field.

I have been an amateur astronomer for 50 years. I have dreamed of a scope like this. It lives up to its promise.
Optically it is a great instrument. Nebulae, clusters, planets are awesome. 14" of aperture is great!
Mechanically, the CGE Pro mount is a rock. Set-up is difficult. Even components of the mount are heavy. Instructions are good, though, so it all goes together well. And once it is together, it is rock solid.
The computerized system is great for finding and tracking objects.
Favorite viewing location: My home observatory in NW Arkansas Ozarks
Favorite object to observe: Saturn
Pros: outstanding performance
Cons: not a portable scope
Yes, I recommend this product!

For starters, I'd like to say I look up to people like you; people who spend their entire lives watching the skies. Although I'm only 18, I hope that one day I may be able to purchase a telescope like this. I'm currently using an Orion XT8 Dobsonian.While it certainly gets the job done (at the cost of being quite large), it isn't the best for planetary viewing, and I'd like to have a scope that's less for beginners and more for experienced (2 years) amateur astronomers. Do you have a suggestion?
