makes the CPC 925 GPS great for astrophotography?
focal length primary and lower magnification secondary —
Contributes to a flatter focal plane with less coma and
design —Optimized for astrophotography. Minimizes
vignetting at the edge of the field of view. This reduces
light drop off at the corners of your film plane.
Figured Optics — Just like all other Celestron
Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes, the CPC 925 GPS optics are
individually matched and hand figured to ensure the highest
optical quality in every telescope.
mechanism — At the heart of Celestron's
Schmidt-Cassegrain focus mechanism are pre-loaded ball
bearings, not bushings, minimizing focus shift.
die cast aluminum fork arms —For maximum rigidity.
roller bearing design bearing and shaft —The telescope
base rotates around a wide 9.5” track for maximum
stability; especially important when equatorially mounted for
port — For interfacing an autoguider or a drive
corrector for long exposure imaging or astrophotography.
XLT coatings — High quality multi-layer coatings
maximize transmission of light to the film plane.
new CPC Series with revolutionary SkyAlign Alignment Technology
re-defines 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.
CPC Series' internal GPS receiver automatically downloads the
date and time from orbiting satellites and pinpoints its exact
location on Earth. This eliminates the need for you to
manually enter the date, time, longitude and latitude.
the CPC's internal GPS has established the telescope's
position, aligning the telescope is as easy as 1-2-3!
Simply locate and use hand control to manually 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 remote hand control allows direct access to
each of the celestial catalogs in its user-friendly database.
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
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
telescope up 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.
also "Solar Sys Align" that lets you align on the Sun
or Moon for daytime observing -- it is easy to use this to see
planets or bright stars in the day.
new CPC Series telescopes, like our acclaimed Advanced Series
and premium CGE Series telescopes, feature meticulously matched
and hand-figured optical systems that are manufactured in our
facilities in Torrance, California. In addition, all CPC
models are available with StarBright XLT High Performance
the introduction of the CPC Series, 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. All CPC models ship standard with our NexRemote
telescope control software.
