  • 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

For those looking to step up to an 11-inch optical tube, Advanced VX is a great option. Not only is it one of Celestron's most affordable 11-inch telescopes, it is also one of the most portable. This telescope represents an interesting option for anyone looking for a large instrument for visual use and also trying their hand at astrophotography with a second, smaller optical tube. There are numerous high quality 80mm refractors ideal for that purpose that could be added for under $1000 should you wish to explore that option.

About the Advanced VX 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.
