The Celestron Advanced VX 8 EdgeHD is a complete astroimaging platform for deep sky observation and image capture that combines the new Advanced VX computerised mount with Celestron's best optics, the EdgeHD optical system. The telescope features an 8” Schmidt-Cassegrain optical tube with 2032mm focal length, 40mm eyepiece, an adjustable stainless steel tripod and NexStar hand controller. The EdgeHD optical technology is designed to produce aberration-free images across a wide visual and photographic field of view. The VX mount with improved motor was specifically designed for optimum power and tracking performance for smaller telescopes. Thanks to the autoguider support and All-Star Polar Alignment you can choose any star listed in the NexStar hand control (included) to assist in accurately aligning your telescope's mount with the North Celestial Pole.

Advanced VX Computerized Mount Tour



About the VX 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. 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. Back to top
