The Celestron CPC DELUXE HD are the evolution of the CPC series, which adds the new EdgeHD technology aplanatic optics. The best telescopes in this type of range, these telescopes are perfect for the most demanding user looking for a high performance tool but still compact and easy to carry and use.
CPC DELUXE HD design is ergonomic and compact, ideal to transport it even in the trunk of the car. The optics together with the alt-az mount can be separated from the tripod for easy transport and the lateral handle allows to safety lift it. Opening clutches you can move the telescope even without electric power. The tracking system and the motions of the telescope is very accurate and fluid, very important any application. The rugged steel tripod has retractable legs allowing to reduce its size and for an easier transport. Together with the tripod there is a large and useful accessory tray.
Celestron challenge was to further improve their famous Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes and the intention of creating a instrument without compromise: this brought to the realization of these aplanatic optics, that creates a stellar image comparable only to the famous RC or the CDK. The EdgeHD optics in fact guarantee perfect images, both in color level and in big 42mm field correction. Maintaining the same high quality standards, Celestron has succeeded in creating a new generation telescopes at a very affordable price. The construction of these optics is performed by the combination of the best features of CDK and SCT optics. EdgeHD in fact are made with primary and secondary spherical mirrors. But, unlike the Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes, in the optical path two lenses that correct aberrations are installed, so stars appear perfectly point, without coma or field curvature.
The NexStar+ hand control has a control software with various functions, such as the innovative alignment system 1-2-3 Stars SkyAlign that allows alignment of the mount without knowing the alignment stars, in a very short time you will be able to aim any object listed in the database. Thanks to the serial cable supplied as standard, you can connect the telescope to your PC and using the planetarium software Celestron Sky Portal, you can observe in real time a list of visible objects by date, time and place of observation, but also upgrade the firmware of the hand control. The integrated GPS device automatically detects the date, time and location of observation, thus ensuring greater accuracy in target objects. It can be also connected to Sky Portal or NexRemote using form SkyQlink2 WiFi (optional) by connecting it to one of the two auxiliary ports.
