  • Autoguider port for long exposure imaging

  • New motors offer improved tracking performance & provide more power to overcome load imbalances

  • Updated industrial design offers more rigidity, less flexure and improved aesthetics

  • New design allows viewing or imaging across the meridian without interference from the motors housings

About the Mount

The new Advanced VX mount was specifically designed to provide optimum imaging 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. Image 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 our previous design, improving stability under heavier loads. Improved motors offer more torque and can handle slight load imbalances with ease.
