Advanced VX 8” EdgeHD: truly the ultimate entry-level astroimaging package.

This package combines the groundbreaking new Advanced VX mount with Celestron’s best optics, the EdgeHD optical system. This setup offers the astroimager maximum versatility – allowing up to 3 different f-stop configurations. Users can attach a camera to the rear of the telescope and shoot at f/10, or attach our 8-inch focal reducer (coming soon) and shoot at f/7.
Additionally, EdgeHD is Fastar/Hyperstar compatible, giving imagers the option to shoot at ultra-fast f/2. No matter which configuration you choose, EdgeHD technology gives you pinpoint stars all the way to the edge of the CCD sensor. With an 8-inch optical tube and our portable Advanced VX mount, this setup can be easily transported and assembled by one person.
You’ll also have plenty of load capacity to attach your camera and other accessories. This setup is simple enough for a beginner to use, but can also provide years of enjoyment for sophisticated astroimagers.

About the Celestron Advanced VX Mount

The new 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. 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.
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. 
Advanced VX 8 EdgeHD General Features 8” (2032mm) f/10 Edge HD  includes StarBright XLT coatings for better light transmission
Edge HD optical design fully corrects for coma and field curvature, delivering a truly flat field
Fastar compatible tube comes with removable secondary mirror for fast f/2.8 imaging
Built-in tube vents with integrated 60 micron mesh filters allow hot air to be released behind the primary mirror
9x50 optical finderscope for locating alignment starsInteger gear ratios and permanently programmable Periodic Error Correction eliminates recurring track errors from the worm gear.
New motors offer improved tracking performance & provide more power to overcome load imbalances
Autoguider port for long exposure imagingNew design allows viewing or imaging across the meridian without interference from the motors housings
Updated industrial design offers more rigidity, less flexure and improved aesthetics
NexStar+ hand control offers multiple language programming (English, French, Italian, German, Spanish)
Improved latitude range. 
Can be used between 7 – 77 degrees latitude.

Warranty: 2 years
