This scope & mount are literally massive. For the hardcore astronomer who wants to track the sky for astrophotography etc. Entirely too much for me, I've only had outside 1 time , it is still new, absolute brand new condition. Includes a laser collimator too. Free shipping. Thanks.

8 (200mm) f/5 optical design gives excellent wide field views

New motors offer improved tracking performance & provide more power to overcome load imbalances

Parabolic primary mirror minimizes spherical aberration to produce a better image

Updated industrial design offers more rigidity, less flexure and improved aesthetics

Integer gear ratios and permanently programmable Periodic Error Correction eliminates recurring track errors from the worm gear.

Large aperture at an affordable price, our Advanced VX 8" Newtonian provides 78% more light-gathering abilities compared to the 6" model. The parabolic primary mirror minimizes spherical aberration to produce a sharper image near the edge of the field of view. This scope is great for intermediate visual observers and beginning astroimagers looking for a large aperture with lots of light-gatheringpower. As you grow in your hobby, you can continue to enjoy all the high-level features of the Advanced VX. About the Mount The new Advanced VX mount was specifically designed to provide optimum imaging performance for smaller telescopes. Now your smaller telescope can take advantage of All-Star Polar Alignment and autoguider support. You'll be able to track through long exposures using permanently programmable periodic error correction. Image across the meridian without doing a meridian flip, so you can seamlessly image the best part of night sky. Advanced VX features significantly larger base castings than our previous design, improving stability under heavier loads. Improved motors offer more torque and can handle slight load imbalances with ease.
