CPC800 - Great Equipment

  • Summary: The CPC 800 is a dream for someone who wants to get into more than just a toy as a telescope. With computer controlled drive and GPS technology to assist in alignment, the CPC 800 will have you up and viewing in minutes. I replaced the standard viewfinder scope with a Telrad Bullseye 1:1 finder, and alignment literally takes less than five minutes. The CPC 800 follows whatever object you select from it's broad data base, and will give hours of viewing pleasure.

Dream come true

  • Summary: I did a lot of research before I settled on the CPC 800. I use to own a 6" Newtonian and wanted a scope with better light gathering capabilities and one that was easier to transport. The S-C was the obvious choice. It was a hard choice between the 800 and the 925, but the 800 won out based on its weight and smaller size. I have not been disappointed. I read a number of reviews of this scope by amateur astronomers much more serious and knowledgeable than myself.

  • Summary: This scope is very hard to top at the price and is the pinnacle of Celestron's famous 8 inch SCT. You can't go wrong with any of the CPC scopes.
  • Pros: Easy to set up, fun to use, very well made
  • Cons: Crazy bright power light must be covered

The Fork Mounted Celestron C8 at The Height Of Its Abilities

11 April 2007
  • Summary: The CPC 800 is capable of doing a lot out of the box. Maybe not ideal as a first astronomical telescope, but possibly all you'll ever need.
  • Pros: Capable tracking, simple to operate, well thought out layout.
  • Cons: Large size, needs wedge for equatorial alignment.
