For those looking to step up to an 11" telescope, Celestron's Advanced VX 11" Schmidt-Cassegrain is a great option. Not only is it one of Celestron's most affordable 11" telescopes, it is also one of the most portable. The Advanced VX mount is strong enough to support the 11" aperture optical tube assembly and a couple of small lightweight accessories, yet weighs far less than some of Celestron's other 11" telescope kits. As far as optics go, the 11" Schmidt-Cassegrain gathers 41% more light than the 9.25" model. You also get our StarBright XLT coatings for even better light transmission.

Celestron's Advanced VX mount was specifically designed to provide optimum imaging performance for telescopes. Now your 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 astrophotos 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 Celestron's previous design, improving stability under heavier loads. Improved motors offer more torque and can handle slight load imbalances with ease.
