CELESTRON ADVANCED VX 11″ SCT

The CELESTRON ADVANCED VX 11″ SCT astronomic telescope features Celestron’s premium StarBright XLT coated optics and the AVX computerized equatorial mount. With the optical tube assembly of the CELESTRON ADVANCED VX 11″ SCT weighing only 27.5 lb., this telescope is still portable enough to be taken to dark skies, and it has 89% more light gathering power than an 8″ telescope and more than 40% more than the 9.25″. It will allow the serious visual observer and the imager to observe and image the differents objects of the solar system as the rings of Saturn or Jupiter as well as offer him to explore the night sky where he will see stars, galaxies, nebulae and many others.

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.
