Celestron Advanced VX 6-inch Refractor Telescope
|Big refractors are great for deep sky observing. They have the aperture to go deep with the contrast you'll only get from a refractor. |
Advanced VX 6 Refractor - Quick Overview
There is something magical about the view through a refractor. Unlike Schmidt-Cassegrain or Newtonian telescopes that have a secondary mirror, refractors offer no obstruction of the aperture, giving you the highest possible contrast. This is a large instrument capable of revealing a myriad of deep space objects. Like any achromat, it will display some false color on the brightest objects, such as the moon, Jupiter, or venus.
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.
