If you want an expensive GPS embedded gadget you should look into the CPC 1100 GPS XLT which is a diffraction limited Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope. It’ll set you back about $2900 but think of all the girls you can impress with your 11″ lens.

The CPC 1100 GPS has a database of over 40,000 objects is fully computerized and has high-end features such as hibernate which lets the telescope maintain its star alignment night after night without needing to be re-aligned.

In case you are wondering the GPS is for automatically downloading the date and time from orbiting satellites and pinpointing its exact location on Earth to eliminate the need for you to manually enter the date, time, longitude and latitude. Once the CPC’s position is established aligning the telescope is easy.

Simply locate and use hand control to manually point (slew) the telescope to three bright celestial objects. You do not need to know the names of the stars — you may even pick the moon or bright planets! Celestron’s NexStar software technology will model the night sky to determine the position of every star, planet and celestial object above the horizon. Once aligned, the remote hand control allows direct access to each of the celestial catalogs in its user-friendly database.
