Celestron Advanced VX (AVX) 8″ Schmidt-Cassegrain

2,400.00 $

-8” (203mm) f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain optical design with XLT coatings for high light transmission
-83% more light gathering power than a 6″ scope
-Integer gear ratios and permanently programmable Periodic Error Correction eliminates recurring track errors from the worm gear
-New motors offer improved tracking performance & provide more power to overcome load imbalances
-Autoguider port for long time exposure astrophotos
-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
-Improved electronics contain increased memory for future expansion
-NexStar+ hand control offers multiple language programming (English, French, Italian, German, Spanish)
