Advanced VX Computerized Telescopes
Engineered from the ground up with astroimaging in mind, the new Advanced VX series from Celestron sets a new standard in mid-level telescopes. Advanced VX provides you with many of the features found on Celestron’s most sophisticated German equatorial mounts, at an extremely affordable price.

The new Advanced VX mount was specifically designed to provide optimum imaging performance for smaller telescopes. Now your smaller telescope (30 lbs. and under) can take advantage of all the features of our larger telescope mounts. 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 a significantly larger base than our previous design, improving stability under heavy loads. Improved motors offer more torque and can hande slight load imbalances with ease.

Experienced imagers will love taking this portable mount to a dark sky site, with all the performance of their larger observatory mount. Or, if you’re new to imaging, this mount will help you get started with the hobby and keep up with your needs for years to come.

I have a question mainly for representatives of Celestron or their dealers.

Will Celestron roll out rigs involving 9.25" (or 11") Edge optical tube assemblies as they have for their non-Edge versions?

Thanks...

My question is about the OTA that came with mine. I bought the 6" Newtonian version and I'm curious if the focusers on these scopes are generally universal. Celestron doesn't seem to sell upgraded or motorized Crawford focusers, but Orion does.
