Celestron CPC 925 GPS XLT
The Celestron CPC 925 GPS XLT offers a unique design, a host of advanced features, GOTO accuracy, and superb optics. It has enjoyed a loyal following ever since it was first introduced with the 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 firm favorite among astrophotographers and discerning visual observers, and it offers 33% more light gathering than the 8" model. The Celestron 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.
This feature packed model comes standard with Celestron's renowned StarBright XLT 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?
The longer focal length primary and lower magnification secondary contributes to a flatter focal plane with less coma and off-axis astigmatism.
A baffle design optimized for astrophotography minimizes vignetting at the edge of the field of view that reduces light drop off at the corners of your film plane.
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.
And at the heart of the Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain focus mechanism is pre-loaded ball bearings, not bushings, minimizing focus shift.
The telescope base rotates around a wide 9.5” track for maximum stability; especially important when equatorially mounted for imaging. For interfacing an autoguider or a drive corrector for long exposure imaging or astrophotography. High quality multi-layer coatings maximize transmission of light to the film plane.
Celestron's new CPC Series with revolutionary SkyAlign Alignment Technology 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, affordability.
