Tracking Capabilities Abound!
This mount, with the computerized GoTo capabilities, can locate and track any of the 40,000+ objects in the NexStar+ hand control's database. All you have to do is perform a simple alignment procedure like Celestron's Sky Align. You can also use Celestron's built-in All-Star Polar Alignment to orient the telescope with the north celestial pole. What could be better than having the telescope mount make all of those small adjustments for you during long exposures? This innovative and incredible mount does most of the work for you! Astrophotography has never been so easy!
But the perks do not stop there! The Advanced VX also offers an improved latitude range. This means you can use it anywhere in the world from 7 to 77 degrees latitude!
Celestron’s engineers pulled no punches when designing the AVX mount. It started from the ground up based on user feedback. The industrial design gives a solid performance. It has improved motors with dual-axis encoders which offer more power to compensate for slight load imbalances. The sturdy 2” steel tripod legs give more rigidity with less flexure. You’ll find two AUX ports and a dedicated autoguider port to give you maximum flexibility with accessories.
