Comments about Celestron 11 Inch CPC Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope Ultimate Bundle:

I was very pleased the first night I took it out. Alignment was easy and everything I asked it to find was in the eyepiece without having to do any adjustments. My friends were wondering what I was giggling about!

Comments about Celestron 11 Inch CPC Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope Ultimate Bundle:

This is an amazing instrument. It is more than I imagined it would be. The first night I set it up everything worked exactly as it was supposed to. The alignment was quick and easy...it even told me the names of stars I used for alignment. After it locked in, I entered Saturn and sure enough it went right to Saturn and wow what a view. Definitely go with the 2 inch eyepieces..makes a world of difference. I love this scope.

Comments about Celestron 11 Inch CPC Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope Ultimate Bundle:

This is my second telescope and it was well worth the purchase. The GoTo function works great and the alignment process can be mastered with a little practice. Something I really like is how quiet the mount's motor is when locked on and tracking a target.

So far I have looked at Jupiter, the Orion Nebula and the Sun (w/proper filter) and each object has proven very impressive through the scope. I recommend the 2" eye piece upgrade for the increase field of view.

The scope is heavy but it is easy to remove from the tripod when you want to move it around. If you are like me and don't have a permanent observation spot, I would recommend you have enough storage space to keep the scope in a place where you do not have to negotiate very many stairs.

Comments about Celestron 11 Inch CPC Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope Ultimate Bundle:

I'm new to amateur astronomy, but decided to go with a big scope. The scope was easy to set up and the other reviews are right, the alignment process is easy, but it does have a learning curve. The first night I got it aligned after about 7 fails and got to see stunning images of Jupiter and a few other items on the tour. I was hooked. The only negative I think is the slew (sp) speed. It seems slow to me, but i've only interacted with a few others. It's nothing you can't get used to for sure. Oh and I ordered an AC power cord and it died on the second night. Hayneedle replaced it at no cost so that's great and not a big deal. The one thing I will warn people strongly about is this scope is heavy. It is accurately reported at 65 lbs. and it is HUGE. The pictures here don't do it justice. Go google image the scope to see perspective. This isn't a negative for me, I wanted big, but if you have trouble lifting or moving heavy items, this isn't the scope for you.The go to works flawlessly, the views are amazing. The scope seems very solid and well constructed, the instructions are easy to read. I don't have any negatives at this point other than the weight/size and that's not really a negative persay.
