Product Description

Celestron - Advanced VX 8" Newtonian Telescope on AVX Computerized Mount (32062)

The Celestron Advanced VX 8" Newtonian has 78% more light gathering than the 6" model, making it more suitable for observing dimmer objects. Since reflectors often summer for coma, the parabolic primary mirror provides sharper images at the edge of the field of view to reduce the effect. For visual observers and even astroimagers, the large aperture shows lots in detail from planets to brighter deep sky objects. With a mid focal ratio of f/5, this telescope is balanced for both observing planets and deep sky objects.

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 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.


Features:

 

  • 8” (200mm) f/5 optical design gives excellent wide field views
  • 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
