Celestron Advanced VX 9.25-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope

The Advanced VX 925 SCT gathers 33% more light than the smaller 8-inch models, which is beneficial for deep space observing.

Advanced VX 925 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope - Quick Overview

  • 9.25 inch (235mm) f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain includes StarBright XLT coatings for better light transmission
  • 33% more light gathering than a 8 inch telescope without the weight of the 11 inch optical tube
  • 6x30 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)

Celestron recommends the Advanced VX 925 as an intermediate level imaging system. This is one of those situations where we must either disagree, or add a caveat at the very least. The 9.25-inch optical tube alone weighs 20 pounds, or two thirds of the mount's stated instrument capacity. As a general rule of thumb we like to recommend that you not exceed 50% of a mount's instrument capacity for deep space imaging applications. We think that imagers would be much happier with the VX 8 HD.

That being said, the C925 has enjoyed something of a cult following over the years. This optical tube features a smaller secondary obstruction than other f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrains, and this tends to present a more pleasing visual image. We would definitely recommend this telescope over an eight-inch model when it comes to visual observing or planetary imaging with lightweight video cameras.
