The Celestron CPC 800 8" Telescope with Carrying Case is a two-piece B&H Kit including the 8" configuration of Celestron's CPC catadioptric telescope and a hard shell carrying case from JMI Telescopes. The molded ABS plastic carrying case has die-cut foam lining and compartments to accommodate the CPC optical tube, eyepiece, and accessories. Both the finderscope and hand controller must be detached and inserted into included protective pouches and placed inside the case. Four locking latches, two steel-reinforced carrying handles, and two 2" built-in wheels equip the carrying case with the user-friendly features needed to safely and efficiently transport the CPC telescope.

    Celestron's combination of Schmidt-Cassegrain optics with Global Positioning System navigation first produced the NexStar GPS series, powerful observation tools for the privileged stargazer no matter which size they select.  There are many automated systems for having a telescope take you directly to your object of interest without being tethered by skills and starcharts, but the unquestionable accuracy of satellite communication is in a league all its own.

    Now the success of the NexStar GPS series has been further improved upon with the CPC series, which makes alignment simpler than ever and adds some other accoutrements that you will certainly appreciate.  Features include a filter which will temporarily eliminate the objects below the horizon from the hand controller's 40,000-item database, simplifying your hunting to solely that which can currently be observed.

    In the realm of the practical, there are a few key improvements over the NexStar GPS series which need to be noted:

    -  First, mounting of the scope upon the tripod was improved, with spring-loaded captive screws that can't be lost and easily communicate with you even in darkness.

    -  The clutch mechanisms for disengaging the automatic slewing of the scope were relocated to more ergonomically sensible locales, as was the NexStar handcontroller.

    -  The finderscope bracket was refined to a streamlined dovetailed unit, with the alignment of the bracket being a simple x-y affair rather than trying to use three alignment screws to correlate with the optical tube's view.

    -  And best of all is the new SkyAlign? system, which doesn't even require your scope to be pointed north and level.  Simply point the scope at any three bright objects in the sky and assure the correct time and date.  That's all there is to alignment!

    The StarBright XLT coatings now arrive standard upon all of the CPC series of telescopes  These coatings dramatically decrease the total percentage of light loss incurred by the scope's system of lenses & mirrors by a measure of 43%! Light is invariably lost as it passes through lenses or is reflected from mirrors, and this can have a particularly dramatic effect of deep space objects. StarBright XLT coatings are a highly intensive process which diminishes this effect and brings the faintest things your scope can resolve into greater detail. They'll bring you the details of larger apertures without adding to the weight of your rig.

    Internal GPS receiver automatically downloads the date, time and location from satellites
    SkyAlign? system offers incredibly simple alignment; just point the scope at three bright objects and it does all the rest!
    Included NexRemote? software package lets your scope be controlled by your personal computer
    Beefy dual-fork type mount with ultrawide gliding base
    Well suited to astrophotography thanks to a low-magnification secondary mirror & internal baffling which improves image's peripheral brightness
    Cords and cables will not become tangled upon the base
    16-Channel GPS receiver guides with 9 slew speeds at its disposal
    Light gathering capacity 843x greater than the human eye, with magnification range from 29-480x
    Limiting stellar magnitude of 14.0 with 10% secondary mirror obstruction
