Engineered from the ground up for optimum astroimaging performance and value, the Advanced VX offers the same features found on Celestron top German equatorial mounts in a compact and portable package perfect for loads under 30 lbs.
Use the built-in All Star Polar Alignment technology and you're ready to image in about 20 minutes, even without a clear view of Polaris. Improved motors handle slight load imbalances with ease, while sturdy 2-inch tripod legs add rigidity to your system.
With Advanced VX, you can image across the meridian, accurately track through long exposures using permanently programmable periodic error correction, and so much more.
Pair this revolutionary mount with your favorite optical tube--including the available 8-inch EdgeHD--and take your imaging to the next level.
