Description



For planetary imaging and brighter deep-sky objects, many astroimagers say
there’s no better choice than a refractor. Unlike Schmidt-Cassegrain or
Newtonian telescopes that have a secondary mirror, refractors offer no
obstruction of the aperture, giving you the highest possible contrast. This
refractor setup features an f/8 objective lens, which can be paired with one of
our Nightscape CCD cameras to image brighter deep-sky objects or our NexImage 5
Solar System Imager to create dazzling images of the planets.



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.
