Celestron CPC 1100 XLT 11 Inch Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope
With the largest aperture of the Celestron CPC GPS line, the CPC 1100 GPS Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope delivers the most light gathering power and a limiting magnitude of nearly 15. The CPC 1100 GPS takes full advantage of its vast database of thousands of NGC and Abell galaxies and provides a new level of detail to all your favorite deep sky objects.
Celestron CPC Telescopes are available in three aperture size choices:
8 Inch CPC Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope
9.25 Inch CPC Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope
11 Inch CPC Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope
Incredible Aperture Size and Clarity
The Celestron 11-Inch CPC Schmidt-Cassegrain with StarBright XLT Coatings offers innovative technology that will allow you to look deep into space. This scope combines new SkyAlign alignment technology, advanced engineering, and a bold new design, all at an affordable price.
In fact, Celestron's Professional Computerized (CPC) Series with revolutionary SkyAlign alignment technology redefines everything that amateur astronomers are seeking. They offer quick and simple alignment, GPS, unsurpassed optical quality, ease of setup and use, advanced ergonomics, enhanced computerization, and value for money. The 11-inch CPC truly has it all.
The Celestron CPC Series includes an internal GPS receiver that automatically downloads the date and time from orbiting satellites, pinpointing the telescope's precise location. This eliminates the need for you to input the date, time, longitude, and latitude manually.
Thanks to SkyAlign, alignment is a breeze. Simply locate and manually point the telescope towards three bright celestial objects - even the moon and bright planets will work. Celestron's NexStar software technology will then 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 remarkably user-friendly database. The CPC's database contains more than 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. When using the "filter limits" feature, only those objects that are above the horizon at your exact time, date, and location will be displayed.
The new CPC Series telescopes feature meticulously matched and hand-figured optical systems manufactured in Celestron's facilities in Torrance, California. In addition, the CPC is available with StarBright XLT high-performance optical coatings. These use state-of-the-art, thin-film, vacuum-deposition technology. To ensure consistent optical coatings of the highest quality, the process is tightly monitored and controlled by highly trained technicians. The result is image clarity so stunning it must be seen to be believed.
This telescope includes the NexRemote software, enabling you to operate it remotely from a PC or laptop. NexRemote supplicates all of the functions and features of the NexStar software on the standard NexStar Hand Control. It also offers speech support, allows you to create and save custom tours, and uses Night Vision Mode to preserve night vision. The drive base and mechanics have been redesigned with larger gears and a quick-release clutch. It includes a new heavy-duty steel tripod with accessory tray and center leg support bracket to ensure stability.
