Advanced VX 9.25” SCT is an excellent choice for intermediate level astro imagers looking to gather 33% more light than our 8” telescope, but without the added weight of our 11” optical tube. No single piece of this kit weighs more than 20 lbs, making it easy for one person to transport and assemble.

This f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope features Celestron’s StarBright XLT coatings for better light transmission and a 6x30 optical finderscope for locating alignment stars.

Overview

  • 9.25” (235mm) f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain includes StarBright XLT coatings for better light transmission

  • 33% more light gathering than a 8” telescope without the weight of the 11” 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)

About the 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.

Tips

With any Cassegrain telescope you will have to consider the affect dew fall. The cheapest solution is a lens hood but when dew is a real problem then heater straps will evaporate dew off.
