    Default Compare Celestron CPC 1100 XLT with CGE PRO EdgeHD 1400 Telescope



    I'm just interested is CGE 1400 much better than CPC 1100. Does it have much more abilities than CPC 1100?

    Focusing only on the aperture difference first:

    14^2 / 11^2 = 196 / 121 = 161%

    The 14" EdgeHD has 61% greater light gathering capability than the 11".

    Past the light gathering difference, the EdgeHD ships on the top-of-the-line CGE Pro Mount, while the CPC1100 ships on a run-of-the-mill alt-az fork mount.

    I'll stop there, because the remaining differences all favor the 14" EdgeHD.

    The comparison is somewhat apples-to-oranges - these instruments and mounts are in completely different classes.

    Default CGE Pro 1400 Computerized Telescope

    I typed "CGE Pro 1400 Computerized Telescope" in google and went to shopping results and found telescopes and looked prices next to them. Is there any difference between them because of difference in price? Do all of them have EdgeHD and Fastar Technology? Please answer! Thanks!

    All the CGE 1400 Pro telescope packages are identical - they range in price from list, at $9999 USD to $8999 USD, the lowest price Celestron will allow an authorized distributor to sell it for.

    At a lower price point than $8999, I would be suspicious - either the reseller is violating Celestron's pricing agreement, the scope is incomplete, or otherwise being de-bundled (against Celestron's agreement), or is otherwise suspect.

    Also be aware that Fastar itself has been discontinued by Celestron - the replacement/follow-on is a unit from Starizona, called Hyperstar, manufactured under license.

    This scope is still technically pre-order, although a few are out now among some resellers. It would be unlikely to find one used, or below the $8999 price point that isn't some sort of rip-off.

    They are the same - my best attempt at translating to Croatian:

    Sve CGE 1400 Pro teleskop paketi su isti - oni u rasponu cijena od popisa, na $ 9.999 USD do 8.999 $ USD, najni×e cijene Celestron omogu─çit ─çe ovlaÜteni distributer ga prodati za.

    Po ni×oj cijeni od 8.999 dolara, ja bi bilo sumnjivo - ili prodava─Źa krÜi Celestron je cijena dogovor, opseg je nepotpuna, ili na drugi na─Źin se de-grupirati (prema Celestron's dogovoru), ili je na drugi na─Źin sumnjate.

    Isto tako budite svjesni da Fastar sama je ukinut od strane Celestron - zamjena / nastavak je na jedinicu iz Starizona, zove Hyperstar, proizvedeno po licenci.

    Ovo podru─Źje je joÜ uvijek tehni─Źki pre-red, iako su malo out now me─Ĺu neke preprodava─Źe. Bilo bi vjerojatno prona─çi neki koriste, ili ispod 8.999 dolara cijena pointcast to nije neka vrsta parati-off.

    I know you tried to translate it in google translator, but i can't understand that cause it is not translated well. And I'm not croatian, I'm serbian, but that is not big mistake, we are almost the same people. It's just important they have all EdgeHD technology and Fastar techonoly, right?

    Yes... I took a guess re. Croatian or Serbian, 50/50 and got it wrong.

    But the telescopes should be the same.

    Thanks a lot. I'll mabey buy it in future, i just wanted to know are they the same. But if they're the same, why the black ones don't have EdgeHD Optics or Fastar labe on them?

    They are the same if they are in fact the same scopes. Since the price is lower than Celestron authorizes, it might not be the same scopes.

    Be VERY careful dealing with sellers who don't follow factory guidelines. You could easily get a cheap set of optics in an expensive Celestron package.
