C sharp is the enharmonic of D flat so this means that the C sharp major scale and the D flat major scale share exactly the same piano keys and for this reason, the very same fingerings.  However, following the rules of music theory, in D flat major the physical piano note C sharp will be written as D flat, D sharp will be written as E flat, and so on.

Many students prefer to learn the scale of D flat major rather than C sharp major because D flat has only 5 flats in the key signature whereas C sharp major has 7 sharps!  However, the key of C sharp major does exist and an example could be the Prelude and Fugue in C sharp major by J.S. Bach
