      Comments about Celestron CGEM DX 11 Inch Edge HD Optics Telescope:

      I chose this model over the 14 inch to make sure I could put it together on my own (I am 55). I Have had it about a year and have enjoyed looking at planets and the Moon. Some of my photos have been seen on TV.

      The image quality is nothing short of amazing! Celestron tech support has been excellent as well.

      I highly recommend this scope. My first scope was a small Meade ETX.

      Also, this scope is very durable, extremely well built.

      Comments about Celestron CGEM DX 11 Inch Edge HD Optics Telescope:

      Celestron has really put together a good package. Although this scope is priced a little high, the goto mount and scope are top notch. The tripod is the beefy one from the CEM Pro and it is BIG! My wife said, "Now that is a real telescope! My daughters are looking forward to a clear night.

          Comments about Celestron CGEM DX 11 Inch Edge HD Optics Telescope:

          When I received this telescope I was very exited to put it together and use it. Unfortunatly I found that primery mirror in OT was somehow lose, so I had to send the OT back to Celestron. Hayneedle customer service was great! They helped me to set the exchange for new OT and I hope that all will get right soon. The telescope itsself is very impresive piece and I cannot wait to use it in its full potential. Also,it's always pleasure to shop with Hayneedle and Telescopes.com.
