Product Description

CELESTRON - Advanced VX 6" Newtonian Telescope  (32054)

The Celestron Advanced VX 6" Newtonian Reflector Telescope is excellent for basic deep sky observing as well as planetary observing due to its impressive light gathering power of the mirrors and mid fast focal ratio. With the parabolic primary mirror, aberration is limited which helps create high definition views. With a fast focal ratio of f/5, the 6" Newtonian is specifically great for observing brighter deep sky objects like the Orion Nebula, Hercules Cluster, and even the Andromeda Galaxy.

Celestron's Advanced VX Mount 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 degrees latitude and utilizes the NexStar hand controller for slewing and finding objects.

Quick Overview:

  • PEC counteracts worm gear errors
  • Improved tracking performance
  • Overcomes load imbalances
  • Image and view across the meridian without interference
  • 7-77 degree latitude
  • NexStar hand controller software
