Celestron CPC 1100 GPS XLT Computerised Telescope

Reviews Average: 0 (0) Reviews
Product Code:
Redefine the heavens with the Celestron CPC 1100, Celestron's latest and most advanced telescope to date. With a 280 mm (11 in) aperture, the largest among the Celestron CPC GPS telescopes, the CPC 1100 provides the most light gathering power, in addition to its limiting magnitude close to 15 and an extensive Celestial Object Database. This database of over 40,000 galaxy clusters and heavenly bodies comes with filter limits that you can tweak to make navigation quicker.

Featuring Celestron's famous StarBright XLT coatings and SkyAlign Alignment Technology, the CPC 1100 has an internal GPS that automatically downloads the date and time from satellites in orbit and pinpoints the exact location of your telescope, so aligning your scope and determining positions of heavenly bodies becomes a breeze. A sophisticated hibernate function eliminates the need for constant alignment, making the CPC 1100 ideal for permanent observation locations.

The Celestron CPC 1100 's improved specs bring even the most distant objects in the night sky closer to home, in intricate details like you've never seen before. Weighing 65 lbs and with convenient carrying handles, this portable, high-performing, feature-packed scope has quickly become a top-rated favourite among astronomers everywhere.

Internal GPS:
The 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.

Celestron's Revolutionary SkyAlign:
Once 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 the 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.

Celestial Object 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 (i.e., 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.

Innovative Features:
The 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 Optical Coatings. With 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.
