CPC 925 GPS — Unique design, advanced features, GOTO accuracy, and superb optics. You get the picture.
9.25” optical system has enjoyed a loyal following since we first
introduced it with our Ultima 9.25” in 1995. Now the 9.25” optical tube
is coupled with Celestron's newest computerized telescope family — the
CPC GPS series.
The 9.25” was already a
favorite among astrophotographers and discerning visual observers and it
offers 33% more light gathering than our 8" model. The CPC 925 GPS was
specifically designed for visual infinity focus when using 2" eyepieces
and has an optimized baffle system to benefit astrophotography by
minimizing vignetting at the edge of the field of view. Its longer
primary focal length and lower magnification secondary mirror contribute
to a flatter field of view at the focal plane and helps to further
reduce optical aberrations.
packed model comes standard with Celestron's renowned StarBright
multi-coatings. The CPC 925 GPS is compatible with the complete line of
Celestron photographic and visual accessories.
What 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 off-axis astigmatism.
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.
- Hand 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
- Heavy-duty 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 imaging.
- Autoguider port — For interfacing an autoguider or a drive corrector for long exposure imaging or astrophotography.
- StarBright coatings — High quality multi-layer coatings maximize transmission of light to the film plane.
Celestron's new CPC Series with revolutionary SkyAlign Alignment
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,
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
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.
Celestial Object 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 way).
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 and StarBright XLT High Performance Optical Coatings.
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.
