Product Description

Celestron • CPC 800 GPS XLT 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain Computerized Telescope • 11073-XLT

Featuring  Celestron's  StarBright XLT coatings in a Schmidt based design, the Celestron CPC 800 GPS XLT Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope is a telescope for advanced visual astronomers that want to take it to the next level.    Most standard aluminum coatings have a reflectivity of approximately 85%, but Celestron has increased it to 95% with the StarBright XLT coatings -  major improvement!  Mounted on a dual fork mount, the user-friendly design of this telescope makes it very portable to mount on the heavy duty tripod. A 99% reflective star diagonal is included.

The Celestron CPC 800 GPS XLT Schmidt-Cassegrain has the built in NexStar system, featuring a 40,000 objects database including the Messier, NGC, IC and many other deep sky objects as well as planets. The motor drives in the mount are also equipped with features designed to corrected errors in the worm gears to help accurately track and slew to stars. The periodic error correction (PEC) compensates for the irregularity of the worm gear shapes by first recording corrections over a period of 8 minutes and then playing back the errors to reduce the size of guiding errors. It is recommended that the user use PEC software in conjunction for even better performance.
