For astrophotographic imaging of planets and brighter deep-sky objects, many astroimagers say there's no better telescope choice than a refractor. Unlike Schmidt-Cassegrain or Newtonian telescopes that have a secondary mirror, the refractor design does not obstruct the telescope's aperture, giving you the highest possible contrast. This refractor setup from Celestron features an f/8 objective lens, which can be paired with many planetary or deep-sky astrophotography cameras to create dazzling astrophotos.

The Celestron Advanced VX mount was specifically designed to provide optimum astrophotography performance for smaller telescopes. With the Advanced VX mount, small telescopes 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. Capture images across the meridian without doing a meridian flip, so you can seamlessly image the best part of the sky. The Celestron Advanced VX telescope mount features significantly larger base castings than Celestron's previous design, improving stability under heavier loads. Improved motors offer more torque and can handle slight load imbalances with ease.
