Includes Celestron Adanced VX Mount, PoleMaster, PoleMaster Adapter for Advanced VX, Pelican Case 1610 and Celestron PowerTank Lithium Ion

Engineered from the ground up with astroimaging in mind, the new Advanced VX series from Celestron sets a new standard in mid-level telescopes. Advanced VX provides you with many of the features found on Celestron’s most sophisticated German equatorial mounts, at an extremely affordable price.

John McDonald offers an excellent review of the Advanced VX mount with the subtitle, "We evaluate a sturdy and portable mount designed for viewing and imaging."  (Note John's compliment to All-Star Telescope near the end of the review.)  John is a regular participant in our New Mexico Star Parties and retired physicist in the Victoria RASC.

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.

Experienced imagers will love taking this portable mount to a dark sky site, with all the performance of their larger observatory mount. Or, if you’re new to imaging, this mount will help you get started with the hobby and keep up with your needs for years to come.
