Product Description

CELESTRON - Advanced VX 11" SCT and AVX Equatorial Mount  (12067)

The 11" Schmidt-Cassegrain optical tube is a very portable yet powerful telescope. It is great for the amateur astronomer and astrophotographer because its   catadioptric design makes it excellent for focal ratio adjustment for different types of imaging. With a 1600x light gathering power and improved light transmission due to the StarBright XLT coatings, the optical tube has all the features the astro-imager will need to get the best out of their images. Since the  focal ratio is f/10 which is a slower focal ratio, planetary observing at high magnifications will look best, but if the Focal Reducer (Optional - Not Included) is added, the focal ratio becomes f/6.3, a major adjustment for better deep sky and faster CCD imaging.

Celestron's Advanced VX has most of the same features found in the most advanced Celestron mounts but at a smaller price! Astrophotographers will certainly find this mount useful because it has it is capable of mounting smaller end optical tubes such as most of the Schmidt-Cassegrain optical tubes while still using the powerful alignment and slewing tools found in larger mounts like the CGE Pro and CGEM. The All-Star Polar Alignment is probably one of the best features since it strives to give the best alignment possible to the celestial pole so imaging can go more smoothly. The Periodic Error Correction (PEC) built into the mount also assists in longer exposures since it counteracts constant errors in the mount's drive gears which minimize shifts during exposures. Much like the higher-end mounts, the meridian can also be imaged without flipping the mount around, a major plus for astrophotography! The Celestron Advanced VX Mount can be used between 7-77 degress latitude and utilizes the NexStar hand controller for slewing and finding objects.

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.

Features: 

  • 11” (2800mm) f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain includes StarBright XLT coatings for better light transmission
  • 41% more light gathering than a 9.25” telescope
  • 9x50 optical finderscope for locating alignment stars
  • Integer gear ratios and permanently programmable Periodic Error Correction eliminates recurring track errors from the worm gear.
  • Autoguider port for long exposure imaging
  • New motors offer improved tracking performance & provide more power to overcome load imbalances
  • Updated industrial design offers more rigidity, less flexure and improved aesthetics
  • New design allows viewing or imaging across the meridian without interference from the motors housings
  • Improved latitude range.  Can be used between 7 – 77 degrees latitude.
  • NexStar+ hand control offers multiple language programming (English, French, Italian, German, Spanish)
