Celestron - Advanced VX Computerized GoTo EQ Mount - 91519

The Celestron Advanced VX mount provides you with many of the features found on Celestron’s most sophisticated German Equatorial Mounts, at an extremely affordable price! Astroimagers and visual astronomers will appreciate the increased portability of this GoTo equatorial mount due to its lighter weight, while still using the powerful alignment and slewing tools found in larger mounts like the CGE and CGEM. The Advanced VX is stout enough to handle an 11" SCT due to the very solid stainless steel tripod with 2" diameter legs. The All-Star Polar Alignment feature makes polar alignment a breeze. The programmable Periodic Error Correction built into the mount also assists in steady imaging since it eliminates tracking errors in the mount's brass drive gears thus minimizing image shifting during longer exposures. Due to the intelligent design of the VX, the meridian can also be imaged without flipping the GoTo equatorial mount around - a major plus for astrophotography! The Celestron Advanced VX Mount can be used between 7-77 degrees latitude and utilizes the NexStar hand controller for slewing and locating objects.
