NEAF 2020 Demo - Save Big!

Timing is everything! As you know, NEAF was cancelled this year due to COVID-19, however, we are happy to say that the High Point NEAF Demo Sale is ON! You see, some of the NEAF booth contents from Celestron, Meade, Explore Scientific & Apertura had already been shipped to us by the time NEAF was cancelled, and our warehouse team opened the boxes to make sure everything was ready for set up at the show. That means we have a bunch of Open Box items available at NEAF Demo prices, but this year they haven’t even been set up! Open Box means you get the full manufacturer’s warranty, just like always.

Please note that NEAF Demo Sale items are available in limited quantities and when they’re gone, that’s all she wrote, so make your decision and snag this awesome Open Box item before someone else does!

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.
