Celestron NEAF 2017 Demo - Save Big!

This 11" EdgeHD OTA is from the Celestron booth at the NEAF Astronomy Show on April 7-8, 2017. It will be shipped to the show from the manufacturer as a new item, unpacked, and shown to the crowd over the weekend, and then re-packed and sold to High Point. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you buy this product:

  • We assume all NEAF 2017 demos will have a condition rating of 9.5 to 10 when it ships to the buyer. Each item will be inspected upon arrival at our warehouse, and if the condition isn’t as expected, we will notify the buyer before we ship to give you a chance to cancel or negotiate.
  • All NEAF 2017 Demo items come with the full manufacturer’s warranty.
  • PICK UP AT NEAF: If you want to buy this item ahead of time and pick it up at the end of the show on Sunday, that can be arranged, just give us a call. You CANNOT take the item before the end of the show on Sunday since Celestron needs it available to demo to customers.
  • SHIPMENT: This item will NOT ship until April 13/14, since obviously, it will be busy being admired by NEAF goers or be in transit until then. You will receive a confirmation email when your purchase ships, just like always. If you have any questions, give us a call or start a chat.

Celestron's EdgeHD Optical Tube is a Aplanatic Schmidt Telescope design producing aberration-free images across a wide visual and photographic field of view. The optical system on the EdgeHD was designed to give an astrograph quality flat focal plane all the way to the edge of the field of view as well as reducing the off-axis star coma. What you will get out of your EdgeHD telescope are visibly sharper images, enhanced mechanical features, FASTAR compatibility, and superior performance all the way around! The difference in EdgeHD optics is that they produce a focal plane more than three times flatter than that from a standard Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope and dramatically flatter than other competitive coma-free designs. The EdgeHD design guarantees you visibly sharp stars across some of the largest CCD chips available today.

The new optical design and redesigned tube allow you to get the most out of your optics every night. Holding the mirror in place, thus reducing image shift when rotating are flexible tension clutches incorporated in this design. These flexible rods hold the mirror in place without using any pressure or force on the mirror assembly. This helps keep the image centered in your eyepiece or CCD chip. Tube vents on the rear cell allow hot air to be released from behind the primary mirror. These vents have an integrated 60 micron micro-mesh filter that guarantees letting warm air out without letting dust in.
