description

The Advanced VX 6" Telescope features an updated industrial design offering more rigidity, less flexure and improved aesthetics. The new telescope design allows viewing or imaging across the meridian without interference from the motors housings.

The Celestron Advanced telescope has a 2” Focuser allows use with 2” and 1.25” accessories. The telescope also features an improved latitude range and can be used between 7 – 77 degrees latitude. An excellent telescope for everyone, the NexStar+ hand control offers multiple language programming, including English, French, Italian, German and Spanish.

Perfect for astrophotography, the refractor telescope features an autoguider port for long exposure imaging, and a 150mm f/8 objective lens for high contrast planetary views.

For astrophotography, the refractor telescope ensures brighter deep-sky objects. Unlike Schmidt-Cassegrain or Newtonian telescopes that have a secondary mirror, refractors offer no obstruction of the aperture, giving you the highest possible contrast. The VX refractor setup features an f/8 objective lens to create dazzling images of the planets.

The new Advanced VX mount was specifically designed to provide optimum imaging performance for smaller telescopes. Featuring 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 previous Celestron designs, improving stability under heavier loads. Improved motors offer more torque and can handle slight load imbalances with ease.

Ships to Australia and New Zealand only.
