For those looking to step up to an 11-inch optical tube, Advanced VX is a great option. Not only is it Celestrons most affordable 11-inch telescope, it is also one of the most portable. The Advanced VX mount is strong enough to support this optical tube assembly and a couple of small accessories, yet weighs far less than some of our other 11-inch telescope kits. As far as optics go, the 11-inch SCT gathers 41% more light than the 9.25-inch model. You also get our StarBright XLT coatings for even better light transmission. As you grow in your hobby, you can continue to enjoy all the high-level features of the Advanced VX computerised goto system that allows you to explore thousands of objects via the onboard database.
About the VX MountThe Advanced VX mount was specifically designed by Celestron to provide optimum imaging performance for smaller telescopes. Now your smaller telescope can take advantage of All-Star Polar Alignment and autoguider support. Youll 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.Optical Design Schmidt-CassegrainAperture (mm) 280 mm (11 in)Focal Length (mm) 2800 mm (110 in)Focal Ratio 10Eyepiece 1 (mm) 40 mm (1.57 in)Magnification 1 70 xFinderscope 9x50Optical Tube AluminumFastar Compatible YesTripod Adjustable, Stainless SteelTripod Legs 2"Weight (lbs) 95 lbs (43 kg)Power Supply Car battery adapterHighest Useful Magnification 661 xLowest Useful Magnification 40 xLimiting Stellar Magnitude 14.7Resolution (Dawes) 0.41 arc secondsLight Gathering Power (Compared to human eye) 1600 xTelescope Weight 95 lbs (43 kg)EQ Mount Weight 17 lbs (7.71 kg)Counterweights 2 x 11 lbsMotor Drive Low cog DC Servo motors with encoders, both axesSlew Speeds Nine slew speeds, 4 deg/sec maximumTracking Rates Sidereal, Solar and LunarTracking Modes EQ North and EQ SouthAlignment Procedures 2-Star Align, Quick Align, 1-Star Align, Last Alignment, Solar System AlignCommunication Ports 2x AUX ports, Autoguider port, RS-232 port (on hand control)Computer Hand Control Double line, 16 character Liquid Crystal Display; 19 fiber optic backlit LED buttonsDatabase 40,000+ objects, 100 user defined programmable objects.
