Celestron CPC 925 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescopes w/ StarBright XLT Coatings 11074-XLT Product Info

The new Celestron CPC 925 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescopes 11074-XLT with revolutionary Celestron SkyAlign Alignment Technology redefines everything that amateur astronomers are looking for - quick and simple alignment, GPS, unsurpassed optical quality, ease of set-up and use, ergonomics, enhanced computerization and, most important, affordability.

The internal Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver automatically downloads the date and time from orbiting satellites and pinpoints Celestron CPC 9 1/4" Computerized Telescope's exact location on Earth. This eliminates the need for you to manually enter the date, time, longitude and latitude.

Celestron is proud to introduce revolutionary Celestron SkyAlign Alignment Technology:

Once the telescope's internal GPS has established Celestron CPC - 925 Computerized Telescope's position, aligning your Celestron CPC 9 - 1/4" Telescope is as easy as 1-2-3! Simply locate and manually point (slew) Celestron 9 1/4 Professional Computerized Telescope to three bright celestial objects. You do not need to know the names of the planets! Celestron NexStar Software Technology will model the night sky to determine the position of every star, planet and celestial object above the horizon. Once aligned, the Celestron Remote Hand Control allows direct access to each of the celestial catalogs in its user-friendly database.

Celestron CPC 925 Scopes ' 40,000+ Celestial Object Database:

CPC Series Celestron 9.25" Computerized Telescope 's database contains over 40,000 Celestial Objects including Messier objects, the Caldwell Catalog, as well as NGC Galaxies, nebulae and planets. User-definable filter limits make navigating through this expansive database quicker and easier. When using the "filter limits" feature, only those objects that are above the horizon are displayed for your exact date, time and location.

Celestron CPC Telescopes Innovative Features:

The new Celestron CPC Series Telescopes, like Celestron Advanced Series Telescopes and premium Celestron CGE Series Telescopes feature meticulously matched and hand-figured optical systems that are manufactured in Celestron facilities in Torrance, California. In addition, all Celestron Professional Computerized Telescopes models are available with optional StarBright XLT High Performance Optical Coatings (model 11074-XLT for Celestron CPC 925 Telescopes). With the introduction of CPC Series telescopes, Celestron has "gone back to the drawing board" and re-designed, re-engineered, and re-invented a telescope family that provides superior quality, unsurpassed ease of use, and incomparable value.
