The CPC Deluxe series telescopes from Celestron blend over 50 years of excellence, in a package that's easy to set up and use.
The EdgeHD optics are great for visual astronomy, but even better for astrophotography. The integrated field flattener delivers pin-point star images right to the edge of the field with no coma abberation. The full array of photographic options are available, such as prime-focus adapters, eyepiece projection adapters, focal reducers, and piggyback mounts.
Celestron's EdgeHD Aplanatic Schmidt-Cassegrain optics also feature highly optimized Starbright XLT anti-reflection coatings and white water glass for maximum light transmission and clarity.
The built-in GPS receiver and SkyAlign alignment system makes setup a snap. Simply turn on the scope, select Sky-Align, let the GPS acquire the local coordinates (time, date, latitude and longitude), then aim the scope to any three bright stars, and voila!
Every CPC Deluxe telescope ships with Celestron's Nexremote control software. This software produces a virtual hand control right on your PC screen which you can interact with. This virtual hand controller can be interfaced with any astronomy program which supports serial ports, or Ascom.
