ADVANCED VX 9.25" EDGEHD TELESCOPE - SKU# 12033
- 9.25” (235mm) f/10 EdgeHD optical tube fully corrects for coma and field curvature, delivering a truly flat field
- Native f/10 focal ratio can achieve the image scale necessary to capture the smallest of deep sky objects—or image at f/7 with optional focal reducer and f/2 with third-party lens assembly
- Premium patented StarBright XLT optical coatings provide maximum light transmission
- Every feature an astroimager wants: PEC, an autoguider port, the ability to image across the meridian, and more.
The 9.25” EdgeHD Advanced VX (AVX) telescope is a specialized instrument designed for astrograph-quality images that sets a standard in mid-level telescopes.
EdgeHD Optical Design
The optical system reduces more than just off-axis star coma; it provides an astrograph-quality flat focal plane all the way to the edge of the field of view.
Advanced VX Mount & Tripod
The Advanced VX mount is designed to provide superior performance for smaller telescopes while taking advantage of Celestron’s most advanced technologies: All-Star Polar Alignment, Celestron PWI telescope control software, SkyAlign, and permanently programmable periodic error correction (PPEC).
Computerized German Equatorial mount - The computerized GoTo capability automatically tracks objects as they move across the night sky.
Payload capacity - The payload capacity for the Advanced VX is 30 pounds.
Dual saddle plate - As of early 2019, Advanced VX mounts include a dual saddle plate that accommodates both CG-5 and CGE-style dovetails.
Celestron PWI Telescope Control: Your Ultimate Astronomy Software - All current Celestron computerized telescopes include Celestron PWI (CPWI), the most advanced astronomy software provided with any consumer-grade telescope.
Starry Night Software - Also included with your purchase is a free download of Celestron’s Starry Night Special Edition Software. The Special Edition software also includes telescope control via your PC.
The Advanced VX 9.25” EdgeHD comes complete with a 25mm eyepiece, a 1.25” star diagonal, and a 6x30 finderscope.
