Overview




  • 8” (200mm) f/5 optical design gives excellent wide
    field views

  • Parabolic primary mirror minimizes spherical aberration
    to produce a better image

  • Integer gear ratios and permanently programmable
    Periodic Error Correction eliminates recurring track errors from the worm
    gear.

  • 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

  • Improved latitude range.  Can be used between 7 –
    77 degrees latitude.

  • Improved electronics contain increased memory for
    future expansion

  • NexStar+ hand control offers multiple language
    programming (English, French, Italian, German, Spanish)







Description



Large aperture at an affordable price, our Advanced VX 8” Newtonian provides
78% more light-gathering abilities compared to the 6” model.  The
parabolic primary mirror minimizes spherical aberration to produce a sharper
image near the edge of the field of view. This scope is great for intermediate
visual observers and beginning astroimagers looking for a large aperture with
lots of light-gathering power. As you grow in your hobby, you can continue to
enjoy all the high-level features of the Advanced VX.



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.
