For those new to astronomy and astroimaging, the Advanced VX 6 Newtonian is an excellent entry-level setup that can grow with you. The Newtonian optical design is excellent for visual observing and offers you the largest aperture for the price. Combined with our Advanced VX mount, youll have all the tools you need to learn the basics of imaging with the advantage of Celestrons 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 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 Newtonian ReflectorAperture (mm) 150 mm (5.91 in)Focal Length (mm) 750 mm (30 in)Focal Ratio 5Eyepiece 1 (mm) 20 mm (0.79 in)Magnification 1 38 xFinderscope 6x30Optical Tube AluminumTripod Adjustable, Stainless SteelWeight (lbs) 56 lbs (25 kg)Power Supply Car battery adapterHighest Useful Magnification 354 xLowest Useful Magnification 21 xLimiting Stellar Magnitude 13.4Resolution (Dawes) 0.77 arc secondsLight Gathering Power (Compared to human eye) 459 xSecondary Mirror Obstruction 1.75" in (44 mm)EQ Mount Weight 17 lbs (7.71 kg)Tripod Weight 18 lbs (8.16 kg)Counterweights 1 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.
