Celestron's 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 computerisation, and most important, affordability.

Celestron CPC 800 GPS (XLT) Computerised Telescope:

Internal GPS:

Automatically downloads the data 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:

Then use the revolutionary SkyAlign technology to align your telescope. Simply locate and manually point (slew) the telescope to three bright celestial objects. You don't even need to know the names of these stars. You could even use the Moon!

Celestial Object Database:

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 computerised hand control allows direct access to each of the celestial catalogues in its user-friendly database.

Innovative Features:

The new CPC Series telescopes, like the acclaimed Advanced Series and premium CGE Series telescopes feature meticulously matched and hand-figured optical systems that are manufactured at the Celestron facilities in Torrance, California. With 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.
