Celestron’s new AC Adapter, made exclusively for our larger CGEM and CGE Pro mounts, is designed to conveniently provide continuous power to your mount when an AC outlet is available for the mounts. The barrel connector on the DC plug threads directly onto the mount’s power jack and prevents power-offs due to inadvertent cable pulls. It delivers up to 5 Amp @ 12 VDC, which gives you plenty of power to run our biggest mounts loaded with heavy equipment. In addition, the switching-type AC-to-DC power adapter provides more power with less weight than a transformer-style power adapter. Precautions should be taken to ensure that the cords don’t get wet when used outside (coiled into a bag or onto a plastic tarp below the telescope). Use an outdoor extension cord to cover the ground, from the power source to the telescope.

CGEM Deluxe Series
