Celestron CPC 1100 Telescope Bundle - 11075-BUN1
Celestron CPC 1100 Computerized Telescope Bundle
- We've packaged the out-of-this-world Celestron CPC 1100 telescope with a selection of key accessories that will help you make the most of your time under the stars, including extra eyepieces, filters, a self-contained battery pack, and an AC adapter!
- The Celestron 11" CPC is the only telescope you'll ever need. It is large enough to capture the light of faint galaxies and nebulae millions of light-years away, but light enough for us to use the term "portable".
- With a database of over 40,000 objects, awesome pointing accuracy, and an easy-to-use lighted keypad, you'll be gazing at a wide array of celestial objects the very first night out!
- The Celestron 2" Accessory Kit included in this special package comes with 3 extra eyepieces, a nice selection of planetary and lunar filters, a 2" diagonal (an upgrade from the standard 1.25" diagonal), a 2X Barlow lens, and an aluminum carry case. By adding this kit to your telescope package, you will have eight (8) different magnifications to choose from!
- We have also included a 12V 7 amp Celestron Power Tank and a Celestron AC Adapter. These important accessories allow you to power your telescope from a standard AC wall outlet or, with the addition of the included DC Adapter, from anywhere your heart desires. Just plug the DC Adapter into the telescope on one end, and the charged Power Tank on the other, and you are good to go!
About the Celestron CPC 1100 Computerized Telescope...
The largest aperture of the CPC line, The CPC 1100 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope has the most light gathering ability and has a limiting magnitude of nearly 15. The CPC 1100 takes full advantage of its vast database of thousands of NGC and Abell galaxies as well as delivering a new level of detail to all your favorite deep sky objects. This CPC 1100 features Celestron's premium StarBright XLT coatings. With sophisticated software features like Hibernate function, the CPC can maintain its star alignment night after night without needing to be re-aligned, making it an ideal instrument for a permanent observatory facility.
The CPC is the most portable of Celestron's top-of-the-line fork-mounted astronomical telescopes. This telescope is at home as a superb visual instrument or, with optional wedge and CCD cameras, as a serious astrophotographer's tool. Turn this scope to 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, with its conveniently located carrying handles and an instrument weight of 65 lb, this telescope is portable enough to setup in your backyard or take with you to your favorite dark sky location.
Celestron's CPC Series with revolutionary SkyAlign Alignment Technology 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 CPC is for you!
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.
The 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 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. There's 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.
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 are available with StarBright and StarBright XLT High Performance Optical Coatings. All CPC models ship standard with the NexRemote telescope control software.
