Celestron Advanced VX Equatorial Mount - 91519
Celestron Advanced Series VX Equatorial Mount
Please Note: The AVX dual saddle is compatible with Celestron’s narrow (CG-5) dovetails, third party Vixen (V-Style) dovetails, and Celestron's larger CGE style dovetails. It is not compatible with Losmandy (D-Style) dovetails.
The Celestron Advanced VX mount is an ideal tool for those wishing to participate in astrophotography! The German equatorial mount is small enough to be portable, but still supports payloads of up to 30 lb.! This is the ideal combination to support your DSLR or astronomical camera when capturing those long exposure, deep sky images. All you have to do is add any optical tube with a Celestron narrow (CG-5) or CGE dovetail bar and an array of imaging accessories, and you will be all set to create fantastic celestial images!
The technical features offered by Celestron's Advanced VX mount are great for astrophotography! And this is only a fraction of the cost when compared to other observatory-grade mounts!
The AVX mount has permanently programmable periodic error correction (PPEC), integer gear ratios, built-in adjustable backlash compensation, and autoguider support. You can also image across the meridian without doing a meridian flip!
Dual Saddle Plate! This version of the Celestron AVX Mount comes with a dual saddle plate that accommodates both Celestron CG-5 (Narrow) and CGE dovetail bars. Switching between the two saddle plates is as simple as moving the hand knobs into a separate set of holes. Now you can use an Advanced VX mount with virtually any optical tube within its weight limit.
This mount, with the computerized GoTo capabilities, can locate and track any of the 40,000+ objects in the NexStar+ hand control's database. All you have to do is perform a simple alignment procedure like Celestron's Sky Align. You can also use Celestron's built-in All-Star Polar Alignment to orient the telescope with the north celestial pole. What could be better than having the telescope mount make all of those small adjustments for you during long exposures? This innovative and incredible mount does most of the work for you! Astrophotography has never been so easy!
But the perks do not stop there! The Advanced VX also offers an improved latitude range. This means you can use it anywhere in the world from 7 to 77 degrees latitude!
Celestron’s engineers pulled no punches when designing the AVX mount. It started from the ground up based on user feedback. The industrial design gives a solid performance. It has improved motors with dual-axis encoders which offer more power to compensate for slight load imbalances. The sturdy 2” steel tripod legs give more rigidity with less flexure. You’ll find two AUX ports and a dedicated autoguider port to give you maximum flexibility with accessories.
The moment you unload your mount, you can be aligned and ready to image in less than 30 minutes! The mount comes together with large, ergonomic handles that makes setting up a breeze. The heaviest component weighs only 18 lb.
The Advanced VX mount gives you an imaging platform equipped with the ability to grow with you as the years go on. The AVX mount is compatible with all of Celestron’s headline-making accessories. You can customize your mount to best suit your needs, no matter how they change with time.
