Home Mounts & Tripods Equatorial Mounts Celestron Advanced VX Equatorial Mount
Engineered from the ground up with astroimaging in mind, the new Advanced VX series from Celestron sets a new standard in mid sized equatorial goto mounts. The Advanced VX provides you with many of the features found on Celestrons most sophisticated German equatorial mounts, at an extremely affordable price. 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. Uses the industry standard Synta dovetail fitting for use with numerous Telescopes.
The Advanced VX mount was specifically designed to provide optimum imaging performance for small to medium size telescopes. Now your 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.Experienced imagers will love taking this portable mount to a dark sky site, with all the performance of their larger observatory mount. Or, if youre new to imaging, this mount will help you get started with the hobby and keep up with your needs for years to come.Tripod Adjustable, Stainless SteelTripod Legs 2"Weight (lbs) 46 lbs (21 kg)Power Supply Car battery adapterEQ Mount Weight 17 lbs (7.71 kg)Tripod Height (Max) 64" in (1626 mm)Tripod Height (Min) 44" in (1118 mm)Tripod Weight 18 lbs (8.16 kg)Counterweights 1 x 11 lbsPayload Capacity 30 lbs (14 kg)Motor 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.

Sturdy, well made, and feature rich The mount hasn't had first light yet, but first impressions are good. It's sturdy, and will meet all my needs (observing and getting into astrophotography). Note that a power supply isn't included. Delivery was amazingly quick, and my request for advice yielded useful hints. Highly recommended. (12/05/2020) Dave - Fife
New mount for a bit of Astrophotography Bought this an upgrade to my existing Alt/Az mount with the intention of doing some astrophotography. Ordered Saturday evening and arrived Tuesday. Good communication and updates from Harrison telescopes. Tripod and mount all look sturdy and well built. Straight forward to put together and setup. (01/11/2019) Dave - Maidstone
