The Celestron Advanced VX 8 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope is ideal for imagers and visual observers looking for a telescope that is much more portable than the reflector or refractor range of telescopes. The 8” f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain includes XLT coatings offers 84% more light gathering than a 6” telescope and ensures little chromatic aberration. The VX mount with improved motor was specifically designed for optimum power and tracking performance. 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 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
