About the Celestron 1100 CPC Deluxe HD Telescope...
The largest aperture of the CPC Deluxe HD series, the Celestron CPC Deluxe 1100 HD Computerized Telescope has the most light-gathering power; almost 90% more than the 8" model and over 40% more than the 9.25". And best of all, the CPC Deluxe 1100 HD combines Celestron''s newly designed fork mount with its superior EdgeHD Celestron Telescope optical system.
With sophisticated software features like the 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. Even with an aperture of over 1500 times the light gathering power than the unaided eye, the CPC Deluxe Series Celestron Telescope is still one of Celestron''s most portable astronomical telescopes. With its conveniently located carrying handles and an instrument weight of 66 lbs, this telescope is portable enough to setup in your backyard or take with you to your favorite dark sky location. The Celestron CPC Deluxe 1100 HD Computerized Telescope is at home as a superb visual instrument or with optional Pro Wedge and CCD camera as a serious astro imager's tool. Turn this Celestron Telescope 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 and even distant globular clusters.
EdgeHD Optical Design: The EdgeHD optical system combines all the compact power popularized by the SCT with an improved high definition Celestron Telescope optical system for wide field, astrograph quality images. As a visual instrument, EdgeHD optics deliver pinpoint images, even with your widest field eyepiece. You can search for all of the Messier Catalog objects and see hundreds of other NGC, IC and Caldwell objects with amazing clarity. For astro imaging, EdgeHD optics produce aberration-free images across your favorite CCD or DSLR camera. All EdgeHD optics are designed to produce an extremely flat focal plane precise enough to match the strict tolerances of the largest commercial CCD detectors, allowing stars to be in tight focus to the very edge of the chip.
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 Revolutionary SkyAlign: Once the CPC's internal GPS has established the telescope's position, aligning 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 and you may even pick the Moon or bright planets! 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 Deluxe HD database contains over 40,000 celestial objects including Messier objects, the Caldwell Catalog, 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). There is also "Solar Sys Align" that lets you align on the Sun or Moon for daytime observing it is easy to use this amazing telescope to see planets or bright stars in the day.
Fastar Versatility: All EdgeHD optical tubes are equipped with a removable secondary mirror for fast f/2 CCD imaging. Not only does imaging in the FASTAR configuration (requires optional equipment) allow for exposure times that are 25 times faster than at f/10, but also yields a field of view five times wider. A perfect combination for imaging your favorite wide field objects in a fraction of the time. (FASTAR imaging requires a third party lens assembly in place of the secondary mirror).
Innovation: The CPC Deluxe HD series uses the innovative All-Star" Polar alignment procedure. Coupled with Celestron's optional Pro Wedge, All-Star allows users to choose any bright star, while the software calculates and assists with polar alignment. Another great feature of the CPC, which is sure to please astro imagers, is the Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PEC), which allows users to train out the worm gear's periodic errors, while the mount retains the PEC recordings.
Power Management: Redesigned electronics deliver constant regulated power to the motors making them capable of driving the telescope even when not perfectly balanced, without sacrificing smooth tracking motion and pointing accuracy across the entire sky.
Performance: For objects near the meridian (imaginary line passing from North to South), the CPC will track continuously through the meridian for uninterrupted imaging through the most ideal part of the sky.
