Celestron Astronomical Telescope Advanced VX 8" EdgeHD Schmidt Cassegrain 203mm

Celestron Astronomical Telescope Advanced VX 8

NEW Celestron Astronomical Telescope Advanced VX 8" EdgeHD Schmidt Cassegrain 203mm

FEATURES

The Celestron Advanced VX 8 Edge HD Telescope

This combination of Edge HD Optics and Celestrons latest Advanced VX mount is proving to be hugely popular with Astromers wanting to take a serious step into the world of Astrophotography. A firm Tring Astronomy Centre favourite!

Celestron Advanced VX Telescopes take advantage of All-Star Polar Alignment and autoguider support. Youll 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.

Advanced VX 8 EdgeHD: truly the ultimate entry-level astroimaging package. This package combines the groundbreaking new Advanced VX mount with Celestrons best optics, the EdgeHD optical system. This setup offers the astroimager maximum versatility allowing up to 3 different f-stop configurations. Users can attach a camera to the rear of the telescope and shoot at f/10, or attach our 8-inch focal reducer (coming soon) and shoot at f/7. Additionally, EdgeHD is Fastar/Hyperstar compatible, giving imagers the option to shoot at ultra-fast f/2. No matter which configuration you choose, EdgeHD technology gives you pinpoint stars all the way to the edge of the CCD sensor.

With an 8-inch optical tube and our portable Advanced VX mount, this setup can be easily transported and assembled by one person. Youll also have plenty of load capacity to attach your camera and other accessories. This setup is simple enough for a beginner to use, but can also provide years of enjoyment for sophisticated astroimagers.

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. Youll 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.
