DESCRIPTION  

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.

Great Mount

By Gordon Kirkland on August, 30th 2017

I purchased the Advanced VX mount to replace the old mount whose computer had become corrupted. I purchased it along with some camera adapters and a solar filter paper to make a cover for my scope for the Eclipse on 8/21/17. I found the mount to be very stable and readily accepted my old Meade LXE75 Refractor. The staff was very helpful in getting the mount and solar filteri in for me quickly, as I had to pick it up on the 19th, 2 days before eclipse. The mount exceeded my expectations, worked well for the Eclipse, in Baker City, OR, as I got some nice shots with the camera adapted to the scope. I am looking forward to using it for normal observing and I am very pleased with it. All things worked very well out of the box, and it was easy to set up. I would recommend this mount to anyone, as it is not too heavy, at 35 lbs, with tripod. The motors ran smoothly, and corrections are easy to make with the hand control. Thank you for a VERY good product!
