The largest aperture of the CPC line, the Celestron CPC 1100 telescope with Starbright XLT coatings has the most light gathering ability and has a limiting magnitude of nearly 15. The Celestron CPC 1100 takes full advantage of its vast database of thousands of galaxies as well as delivering a new level of detail to all your favorite deep sky objects. With sophisticated software features like Hibernate function, the CPC 11" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope can maintain its star alignment night after night without needing to be re-aligned, making it an ideal instrument for a permanent observatory facility.

Description

The CPC series is the most portable of Celestron's top-of-the-line fork-mounted astronomical telescopes. This Celestron CPC 1100 GPS XLT telescope is at home as a superb visual instrument or, with optional wedge and an astro camera, as a serious astrophotographer's tool. Turn this computerized telescope to the planets and see amazing detail on the surface of Jupiter; see Cassini's Division in the rings of Saturn, and resolve details on the surface of Mars. Even the distant Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are within your reach. Although large in aperture and with a weight of 65 pounds, the Celestron CPC 1100 telescope is still portable enough for most adults to setup and breakdown due to the ergonomic built-in carry handles. Hear more about the CPC series and their impressive features in the video overview below.

The revolutionary SkyAlign Alignment Technology built into the Celestron CPC 1100 telescope redefines everything that amateur astronomers are looking for - quick and simple alignment, unsurpassed optical quality, ease of set-up and use, ergonomics, enhanced computerization and, most important, affordability. So if you are looking for a great overall workhorse of a telescope the Celestron CPC1100 is for you!

Aligning the CPC is as easy as 1-2-3! Simply locate and use the hand control to point (slew) the telescope to three bright celestial objects. You do not need to know the names of the stars - you may even pick the moon or bright planets! Celestron's 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 CPC hand control allows direct access to each of the celestial catalogs in its user-friendly database.

The Celestron CPC 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. Filter Limits let you filter out objects that are outside of your local horizon (ie, if trees or mountains were in the way). Identify feature tells you what you're looking at, but it can also be a very fun way to tour around the sky. Just point the Celestron CPC 1100 GPS XLT telescope somewhere and ask it to identify Messier objects (for instance) and it will show you the 5 nearest Messier objects to your position and let you GOTO them. You can keep doing this for different parts of the sky or for different object types - it is a lot of fun. There's also "Solar Sys Align" that lets you align on the moon for daytime observing - it is easy to use this to see planets or bright stars in the day.

The CPC Series telescopes feature meticulously matched and hand-figured optical systems that are manufactured in Celestron's facilities in Torrance, California. In addition, all CPC models come standard with StarBright and StarBright XLT High-Performance Optical Coatings. All CPC models ship standard with the NexRemote telescope control software.

Solar Warning Never look directly at the Sun with the naked eye or with an optic (unless you have the proper solar filter). Permanent and irreversible eye damage may result.
Never use your optic to project an image of the Sun onto any surface. Internal heat build-up can damage the optic and any accessories attached to it.
Never leave your optic unsupervised. Make sure an adult who is familiar with the correct operating procedures is with your optic at all times, especially when children are present.
