Celestron Advanced VX SCT 9.25in Telescope - Schmidt-Cassegrain Product Info

The Celestron Advanced VX 9.25in SCT 12046 is the ideal option for intermediate level astroimagers looking for 33% more light gathering ability over an 8” telescope, but without the addedimage weight of an 11” optical tube. No single piece of this Telescope Kit from Celestron weighs more than 20 lbs, making it easy for one person to transport and assemble. The Celestron VX 9.24in Advnaced VX f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope features Celestron's StarBright XLT coatings for better light transmission and a 6x30 optical finderscope for locating alignment stars. The mount on the Celestron Advanced VX SCT 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 the Celestron SCT 9.l25in VX Advanced 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 SCT Advanced VX Telescope 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.
