by Celestron

Price: £0.00


This second hand instrument in pristine condition is a great opportunity to avail of a first class GOTO High Quality 235mm SCT package on a GoTo fork mount. CPC 925 GPS Unique design, advanced features, GOTO accuracy, and superb optics. Celestrons 9.25 optical system has enjoyed a loyal following since first introduced. The 9.25 was already a favorite among astrophotographers and discerning visual observers and it offers 33% more light gathering than our 8" model. The CPC 925 GPS was specifically designed for visual infinity focus when using 2" eyepieces and has an optimized baffle system to benefit astrophotography by minimizing vignetting at the edge of the field of view. Its longer primary focal length and lower magnification secondary mirror contribute to a flatter field of view at the focal plane and helps to further reduce optical aberrations.

The package includes a mains adapter, Celestron Flexi Dew Shield and a Celestron 2X barlow lens.
