Celestron's Advanced VX 9.25" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope (SCT) is an excellent choice for intermediate level astrophotographers looking to gather 33% more light than an 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain, but without adding as much weight as an 11" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope optical tube. No single piece of this telescope and mount combination weighs more than 20 lbs., making it easy for one person to transport and assemble. This f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope features Celestron's StarBright XLT coatings for better light transmission and a 6x30 finder scope for help locating alignment stars.

Celestron's Advanced VX mount was specifically designed to provide maximum astrophotography 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. Capture images 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 their previous design, improving stability under heavier loads. Improved motors offer more torque and can handle slight load imbalances with ease.
