High Quality Serious Astronomical Telescope

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on January 1, 2013
This is the famous celestron CPC telescope series. Medium size aperature of 9.25'' capable of giving lots of detail and great light gathering capability. Dual Fork Arm Mount is very stable, even for long exposure photography on wedge alt-alz mode. An excellent telescope for the price. Much better than Meade LX-90 for same price. If to choose, I will pick this compared to an Meade LX-90 or Meade LX-200 (Due to weight reason)
Pros: Great Optics, Good Mount
Cons: A bit on heavy side...
Would recommend: Yes

Celestron CPC 925 11074-XLT with tripod

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, CA Written on December 31, 2011
Upon opening both shipping boxes, for the telescope and tripod, I found old shipping papers. Both the telescope and tripod were originally sent to Optics Planet in October 2009 from the Celestron factory. I ordered/received my order in October 2011.
Therefore, I have received a two year old telescope when I expected a NEW-NEW telescope.

During a telephone call to the Celestron factory representative, I was told how to receive a free software upgrade and which new patch cable I will need to bring the two year old telescope up to current standards.

Pros: Great scope...
Would recommend: Yes

Great Telescope

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 29, 2011
I've owned this telescope for nearly 2 years now, and it has been worth every penny. The Schmidt-Cassegrain optics, with the StarBright XLT Coatings, provides a very clear and sharp image. The twin fork mount and heavy-duty tripod are super-steady, and the SkyAlign computer with GPS is very accurate, and eliminates the need to enter date, time, and location information to pinpoint celestial objects, a feature I thought was neat. Never had an issue with the controller yet. Overall, I'd say this is a
good investment for a long-term telescope that performs.
Pros: Excellent Optics, Sturdy Mount, Price/Value...
Would recommend: Yes
