Description

Celestron
Advanced VX EQ Mount: Engineered from the ground up with astroimaging
in mind, the new Advanced VX series from Celestron sets a new standard
in mid-level telescopes. Advanced VX provides you with many of the
features found on Celestron's most sophisticated German equatorial
mounts, at an extremely affordable price.

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.

Experienced imagers will love taking this portable mount to a dark sky
site, with all the performance of their larger observatory mount. Or, if
you're new to imaging, this mount will help you get started with the
hobby and keep up with your needs for years to come.
