After researching scopes and equipment for over 3 years, I decided to jump in with both feet and purchase the 9.25 CPC. It's been nothing but great views and a fantastic time learning the ropes and getting more out of the scope every outing. I haven't come close to the limits of what this scope can do, but that's what makes it fun. Years of enjoyment to come.

The threads on the back of my new [$] cpc 9.25 are off. I have tried to add two very good [$] Wilson Optics diagonals to the back with no luck because the threads on the back of my scope will not accept them, [...] Been told this is a problem with celestron. I'm not a happy camper.

Comments about Celestron 9.25 Inch CPC Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope:

This telescope is amazing. The brightness of the objects viewed as well as the clarity just make it outstanding.

The weight could be a problem for some people if you are prone to travelling with it a lot. Storage cabinets are a must as they make it much easier to move around.

I had one problem with the scope when it arrived. I noticed a small metallic curl clinging to the inside of the corrector lense. It appeared to have been from the threads of the screw holes that hold the corrector lense in place. I was able to carefully remove the lense and blow the piece clear of the lense. Otherwise, there were no problems with any of the items i purchased.

If you are considering this scope, do yourself a favor and get the upgraded 2inch eyepiece kit.

The weight of this thing coupled with the solid tripod makes it very stable. Even a group of kids looking through the eyepiece (from a stepstool :) ) wasn't enough to knock the object out of view.

    Comments about Celestron 9.25 Inch CPC Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope:

    I did all the reviews and knew that the 11 inch would stay inside most of the time unless I built an Observatory or POD. The 9.25 scope is flawless, the construction very solid. l'm in shape, I think, but when I went to place this scope on the excellent mount I had to rethink how to do it. In a word it is heavy! Hayneedle has a very good package deal here .. my shopping around shows that they are in the ballpark regarding the scope and much better in pricing for the additional eyepieces and peripherals.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Very prompt delivery via ground. It was at my door as specified in the order.
