The Celestron CPC telescope is an amazing instrument for visual and astrophotography use. The Celestron CPC telescope is an Alt-Azimuth mounting style telescope. Astrophotography is possible and done very well in Alt-Az mounted telescopes however most will tell you that an Equatorial mounted telescope is the right choice for serious astrophotography. That's why we have combined the Celestron CPC telescope with the Celestron HD Pro Heavy Duty Wedge. A wedge is a piece that mounts inbetween the Tripod and the Fork Mounted CPC telescope. It changes the telescope to an Equatorial mounted telescope. This allows you to polar align your telescope and will minimize the tracking that is done on a standard Fork Mounted Alt-Az CPC telescope. The Celestron CPC Series Telescopes are fully computerized GPS enabled GoTo telescopes. They feature Celestron's revolutionary SkyAlign technology (when used in Alt-Az mode without the wedge) and feature 40000 objects at the push of a button. This Celestron telescope package is the best way to get started into Astrophotography with a Celestron CPC telescope.
