Just got latest newsletter from Celestron and was surprised by price increase. Wonder if dealers will increase price as well.

I noticed that a week or so ago, but yes all the dealers still list it at $1399. It's on my short list within the next few months...so I'm keeping my fingers crossed it stays at $1399...

If you don't mind getting a new EdgeHD scope with it, they're apparently only $500.

A C11 EdgeHD is $2999, and the package that includes the scope and a CGEM is only $3499.

Go figure. I'm just wishing they'd priced it so that the OTA only price was $1999...

Sounds like you want just the OTA(?). Perhaps you could team up with someone who wants just the CGEM....you get your $1999 OTA and they get a $1000 CGEM....sounds like a good deal :lol:
