    The Celestron Advanced VX mount makes astrophotography easier and more accessible than ever. This portable German equatorial mount supports payloads up to 30 lb, making it the perfect companion to your DSLR or astronomical CCD camera for capturing long exposure, deep sky images. Add any optical tube with a Vixen style mounting plate, plus an array of imaging accessories, and you’ll be ready to create impressive celestial photos right away.

    High-end features you need for astroimaging

    Advanced VX offers all the same technical features you’ll find on Celestron’s observatory-grade mounts, sized for smaller payloads—and at a fraction of the cost.

    This mount features permanently programmable periodic error correction (PPEC), integer gear ratios, built-in adjustable backlash compensation, and autoguider support. What’s more, you can image across the meridian (the best part of the nighttime sky) without doing a meridian flip.

    With fully computerized GoTo capabilities, Advanced VX can locate and track any of 40,000+ objects in the NexStar+ hand control’s database. To get started, perform a simple alignment procedure like Celestron’s Sky Align. For imaging, you can also use Celestron’s built-in All Star Polar Alignment to accurately orient your telescope with the north celestial pole—even if Polaris is obstructed by trees or buildings.

    Advanced VX also offers an improved latitude range; use it anywhere in the world from 7 to 77 degrees latitude.

    Rock-solid performance that’s perfectly portable

    In designing Advanced VX, Celestron’s engineers started from the ground up based on user feedback. Advanced VX’s industrial design provides solid performance in an elegant, ergonomic package. Improved motors with dual-axis encoders offer more power to compensate for slight load imbalances. Sturdy 2” steel tripod legs offer more rigidity with less flexure. And you’ll find two AUX ports plus a dedicated autoguider port give you maximum flexibility with accessories.

    From the time you unload your mount at the observing site, you can be aligned and ready to image in less than 30 minutes. The mount comes together quickly with large, ergonomic handles that make setup a snap. The heaviest component weighs just 18 lb.

    Primed for Celestron’s most innovative accessories

    When you invest in the Advanced VX mount, you get an imaging platform that will grow with you for years to come. Advanced VX is compatible with all of Celestron’s headline-making accessories, so you can customize your mount to best suit your needs. Here are just a few accessories that pair perfectly with Advanced VX:

    • Celestron StarSense AutoAlign – For a casual night of observing, align your telescope’s GoTo with push-button ease. Or, when accuracy is everything, use StarSense’s advanced mount modeling capability to add up to 10 alignment stars for Celestron’s most accurate alignment ever.
    • SkyQ Link 2 WiFi Module – Control your telescope wirelessly via your smartphone or tablet using the free SkyPortal mobile app for iOS and Android; it’s a great way to share the night sky with others.
    • SkySync GPS Accessory – Pinpoint your telescope’s location using GPS satellites for a more accurate GoTo alignment.
