    The Celestron Advanced VX (AVX) computerized mount is the ultimate mid-range telescope mount that is perfect for any astronomer looking for a reliable foundation for their system. Designed for beginners and experts alike, the Celestron AVX provides advanced tracking and overall performance! By utilizing Celestron’s innovative All-Star Polar Alignment software for easy alignment, it provides permanent periodic error correction, so your mount learns and improves as it’s used, and adaptable hardware to suit almost any system.

    This mount also includes software co-developed with the famous PlaneWave Instruments, providing one of the most advanced astronomy software suites available. Whether you’re just getting into astronomy or have been around for a while, the AVX mount is an excellent choice for both visual astronomy and astrophotography.

    COMPREHENSIVE AND ADVANCED SOFTWARE

    Celestron’s AVX mount brings an array of astronomy software and functionality generally only reserved for high-end, observatory-class telescope systems. You can save and re-load your alignment settings for next time use. The All-Star Polar Alignment software makes polar alignment quick and easy! Get a quick start to using your scope without the normal tediums of aligning. Included with all of this is a free download of Celestron’s Starry Night software to both provide fascinating information on the celestial objects above and to guide you through our cosmic journey. Plus, most of this functionality is operatable over WiFi!

    AN EQ MOUNT WITHOUT THE HASSLE

    In keeping with Celestron’s goal of making astronomy accessible to as many people as possible, this German equatorial mount is lightweight and intuitive in design. Often you’ll find that with equatorial mounts comes a level of complication that can become too common in this amazing hobby, but the AVX doesn’t fall into that category. Pop it on to nearly any tripod, set up your scope, polar align with the included software, and you’re ready to go!

    DURABLE, RELIABLE, AND ADAPTABLE

    Compatible with all but the Losmandy D style dovetail plates, the AVX can accommodate a massive selection of telescopes with its dual-saddle plate design. From narrow CG-5 dovetails, to wide CGE dovetails, and even Vixen-style plates up to 100 mm, the Celestron AVX is more than capable of handling most small to mid-range telescope OTAs. There’s a good chance the scope you already have is compatible with this mount, so what are you waiting for?

    Best EQ mount for the price!

    I have had this mount for 3 years and it has been quite a journey! I bought this telescope with a Celestron C6 SCT telescope, but switched to a small refractor for deep sky astrophotography. This mount is very reliable and tracks the sky very well. It is designed to carry small/medium refractors, and reflectors up to 8". Especially for wide field observing/photography it is very good. If you want to do high focal length stuff an autoguider is pretty much required. I have had no issues connecting this mount to a PC or my ASI Air to control it with. I would highly recommend to also purchase the AC power adapter to power this scope. In this price point there currently isn't a mount that can compete on the same level with it. Would highly recommend to a close friend. Clear skies everyone!

    Very good resolution. There is much less wobble when using the focuser also.

    Issues at the start

    Under the circumstances I had no issues waiting for the product and it is very sturdy. I just wish I could use it. It has not worked since it arrived and I had to send it to Celestron the day I got it for repairs. Support was easy to work with but I shouldn't have to use them day 1.

    Should have bought this the first time around.

    After 2 weeks of clouds/rain I finally got to put her to use. Took a 3 minute exposure of Orion last night with no auto guiding and NO star trails. See the one shot image. It is no whimp of a tripod with the 2 inch legs. I would highly recommend. Polar aligning with Sharp Cap was a pleasure. Shipping was the same day!

    First telescope and mount

    There is a learning curve. It is winter and clear skies are less prevalent, but taking advantage of clear nights I have rapidly mastered polar alignment and star alignment. I purchased this for Astro photography and am making headway. I need to get guiding to work to open up my path for longer exposures. Ask me again in a few more days!
