Celestron Advanced VX 6in Refractor Telescope Product Info

Ideal for planetary imaging and brighter deep-sky objects, many astroimagers say that there is no superior option to the Celestron VX Advanced Refractor 6in Telescope 22020. Unlike Schmidt-Cassegrain or Newtonian imagetelescopes that have a secondary mirror, this Refractor Telescope from Celestron offers no obstruction of the aperture, giving you the highest possible contrast. The setup of the Celestron VX Advanced 6in Telescope features an f/8 objective lens, which can be paired with Nightscape CCD cameras to image brighter deep-sky objects or our NexImage 5 Solar System Imager to create dazzling images of the planets. The mount on the Celestron Advanced VX 6in Refractor Telescope 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. With this Celestron Telescope 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. The Celestron Advanced VX 6in Refractor Scope 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.
