Celestron CPC 800 Computerized Telescope Bundle

  • This Celestron computerized telescope bundle comes 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 8" CPC computerized telescope will show you the Universe for many years to come. It is large enough to capture the light of faint galaxies and nebulae millions of light-years away, but is still portable enough for an adult to set up alone. That is why the Celestron 8" CPC is one of the most popular telescopes in the world.

  • 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 with the Celestron 8" CPC!

  • 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!
