A joint collaboration between Celestron and PlaneWave Instruments (PWI) have produced an easy to use and powerful telescope control software suite that is now included with all new Celestron computerised telescope mounts (see compatibility list below). This Celestron PWI (CPWI) Telescope Control Software unleashes the full pointing accuracy of your Celestron computerised German EQ or alt-az telescope.

Celestron CPWI Software interface

Celestron CPWI Software interface

With any one of three connection methods from your PC to the mount, CPWI’s telescope control and Sky Viewer display makes selecting your target easy. You can find all your favorite deep sky objects in CPWI’s extensive object database. For even more choices, we’ve linked CPWI to the online SIMBAD astronomical database, which contains more than 10 million celestial objects!

CPWI employs PointXP mount modelling, which accepts numerous star alignment points for superior pointing accuracy. PointXP (the same technology found in Celestron’s StarSense AutoAlign accessory) goes beyond the pointing capability of a traditional hand controller. By adding multiple star alignment points, CPWI accounts for various types of alignment errors, including instrument flexure. The result is the best possible pointing accuracy for your Celestron telescope.

For more information you can download the CPWI telescope instruction manual here.

CPWI SOFTWARE HIGHLIGHTS

  • Sky Viewer star chart features an intuitive planetarium interface. Simply click and zoom to navigate the night sky.
  • PointXP advanced mount modeling allows you to add 100+ points to your alignment model for the most accurate pointing and tracking possible.
  • Ideal for backyard or remote observatory setups: save and re-load your alignment and park your scope
  • Extensive local and online SIMBAD astronomical databases offer thousands of objects to select from.
  • Align your telescope directly from your PC via WiFi or through the Celestron hand control.
  • AutoAlign your Celestron telescope with the optional StarSense AutoAlign accessory.
  • When the Celestron Focus Motor is installed, command it directly within CPWI.
  • Includes wedge align capability for the CPC/CPC Deluxe, NexStar Evolution, NexStar SE mounts.
  • Includes the All-Star Polar Alignment procedure for German equatorial mounts and alt-az mounts with a wedge
  • Allows you to PEC train your RA worm gear with CPWI directly from your PC.
