Wow; fantastic; awesome

  • Excerpt: Gave myself one after retiring after 46 years in Psychology. I've had two previous scopes and wanted a good one with clear optics and a steady mount. Did I ever luck out!! The mount is a "hoss" and I wouldn't want to run into it with a Hummer (for the sake of the Hummer).
  • Pros: Accurate, Easy to Use, Fantastic Mount, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Summary: This 11" SCT is surprisingly easy to setup, use and transport. It's full GPS powered GoTo system is highly accurate, once you get the hang of initial alignment. Alignment itself is easy to do, with a very short learning curve.

  • Summary: Strong Sturdy Mount! I was able to setup, align, and enter coordinates within minutes. Truly this is an advanced generation telescope that puts your eyes in the sky where they should be. This scope is larger than it looks but I was amazed at how easy it is to travel with and mount.

  • Excerpt: Having this in my observatory has meant that I spend much more time looking AT instead of looking FOR. Optics are spot on and I have cranked it to the 60X/in on one occasion. It IS heavy and and you would want a JMI wheeled case to travel with it.It points well, even with a one object align.
  • Pros: Accurate, Quality Lenses
  • Cons: Heavy

  • Summary: This would apply to the entire line of Celestron CPC scopes from 8" to the 11" that I own. Simply put, the optics are fabulous and extremely consistent from scope to scope and the Go To drive is unequalled for accuracy - period!

  • Summary: Whether using my CPC1100 for is optical capability or for astrophotography, it is a real joy to use. I have it on a trolley so it is easy to roll out onto my driveway. Alignment with 3 objects is quick and with the GPS, it never fails.

  • Summary: Since I have purchased the CPC 1100 XLT, I have stepped up into the world of observatory-class observation. (I have also been staying up later at night, too!) It is very easy to align.

  • Summary: I recently purchased a Celestron CPC 1100 XLT GoTo Schmidt Cassegrain from Orion Telescopes and I'm here to tell you this scope is a sure thing. It's literally a no brainer to use. Just point to 3 bright stars and BANG!!! Your off to the stars!!! It has great optics.

  • Summary: First I would like to thank Orion for their A+++ customer service and fast shipping. The telescope arrived in perfect condition. My first impression was, Wow, this thing is huge. After being away from astronomy for about 10 years, my two sons talked dad into getting out his old home built 8" Dob.
