Legacy Reviewer's Review of Celestron CPC 1100 GPS XLT Computerized 11" Schmidt Cassegrain Telescope

With 11'' mirror, you will see higher contrast deep space object. On planet otherwise, excellent but not so much different from an 8'' model (I had a nexstar 8SE with same optics for comparision). The reason would be because of severe atmospheric turbulance that will limit the visual detail, but I believe in excellent nights, the power will exceed of the 8'' telescope. The weight is an issue. Just the telescope with the fork arm mounting weights 30Kg. I added some counterweight to it bringing it to almost 35Kg. Otherwise with celestron proven sct technology, I do trust that this is excellent optical instrument. The fork arm mount is similar to a CGE mount design in terms of accuracy & peformance. Great value for the money. Optics Planet bundle is worth to take, just few more bucks you get a lot more stuff. It's a keeper
Pros: Good Optics, Large Aperature
Cons: Bulky
