Why is the Celestron Advanced VX so popular?

The Celestron Advanced VX has been the hottest selling telescope mount in our store ever since its introduction in 2013. As German Equatorial mounts go, the Advanced VX mount is both lightweight and user friendly. Both the tripod and equatorial head, which are the two heaviest components, weigh roughly 17 pounds. The included 12 pound counterweight, which is the next heaviest component, is adequate for most configurations. A polar alignment scope is optional but not really necessary due to the included All Star Polar alignment utility built into the onboard NexStar computer system.

Users report good results when imaging with this mount together with either a small refractor or a Schmidt-Cassegrain of up to eight inches in aperture. If an entry level imaging system is your primary goal, we recommend the 6-inch SCT model. The lighter weight and shorter focal length of this instrument are both beneficial for starting your journey into astrophotography.
