What makes the CPC Deluxe HD Series great for astro imaging?

  • EdgeHD Optics for aberration free images across a wide field of view.
  • Mirror locks hold the mirror in place and reduce image shift during imaging.
  • Tube vents have an integrated 60 micron micro-mesh filter allowing hot air to be released from behind the primary mirror.
  • Fastar versatility. All EdgeHD optical tubes are equipped with a removable secondary mirror for fast f/2 CCD imaging. Not only does imaging in the FASTAR configuration allow for exposure times that are 25 times faster than at f/10, but also yields a field of view five times wider. A perfect combination for imaging your favorite wide field objects in a fraction of the time.
  • Re-engineered drive train with a larger 5.78 inch, 180 tooth brass gear and .75" stainless steel worm gear designed for smoother tracking accuracy.
  • At the heart of Celestron's EdgeHD focus mechanism are pre-loaded ball bearings, not bushings, minimizing focus shift.
  • Heavy-duty die cast aluminum fork arms, for maximum rigidity and easy imaging through the meridian.
  • Unique roller bearing design with both steel and nylon ball bearings rotating around a wide 9.8 track for maximum stability; especially important when equatorially mounted for imaging.
  • All-Star™ Polar alignment procedure. Coupled with Celestron's optional Pro Wedge, All-Star allows users to choose any bright star, while the software calculates and assists with polar alignment.
  • Autoguider port for interfacing an autoguider or a drive corrector for long exposure imaging.
  • StarBright XLT high quality multi-layer coatings maximize transmission of light to the image plane.
