Celestron Advanced VX Computerized German Equatorial Telescope Mount
NEWLY DESIGNED dual saddle plate compatible with both narrow dovetail and larger CGE dovetails
Equipped with GoTo technology, this sophisticated yet affordable and portable Celestron Advanced VX Equatorial Mount yields optimal imaging performance through long exposure tracking and a large latitudinal range, while also delivering torque and stability to easily handle slight load imbalances. Permanently programmable Periodic Error Correction (PPEC) on the Celestron Advanced VX mount eliminates recurring track errors from the worm gear and greatly improves long exposure tracking while Imaging across the meridian without doing a meridian flip, will have you seamlessly imaging the best part of the night sky.
Experienced imagers and amateur astronomers alike will love taking this portable mount to a dark sky site, knowing that they can experience much of the performance of their larger stationary mount. Whether you wish to do visual or imaging work, you can rest easy knowing that this mount will serve you for a long time to come.
All-Star Polar Alignment
Get ready for a night of astroimaging with your mount faster than previously thought possible with All-Star Polar Alignment. This innovative software solves the time-consuming problem of trying to pinpoint the North Celestial Pole.
The new Lithium Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery chemistry has significant advantages over other battery chemistries, great for those Astronomers on the go.
Celestron’s patented StarSense Technology makes it easier than ever to locate objects in the night sky, even if you’ve never used a telescope before. Turn it on and push ‘Align.’ In about three minutes, you’re ready to observe!
WiFi technology encircles the globe in a web of connectivity, knowledge, and information. Now, Celestron is using that same technology to allow stargazers to connect to the night sky and enhance their experience of the cosmos in fun and unique ways.

Great mouint for a beginner to learn with.
Not that it is necessary but after following a tutorial about aligning my polar scope to the RA I haven't had better alignments. I can get 3-5min exposure times shooting DSO's unguided. All I use for aligning is Kohab's Clock. I've used a few tools that check your alignment and just using my default polar alignment my stats say I'm only .02 off. I haven't had an issue with my AVX and I highly suggest it for your first GEM. The tools and menus are very intuitive and easy to understand. I suggest a new owner study the user guide. Celestron service is also petty good, I've asked some pretty difficult to answer questions and they have always been able to give me the correct answer. I like the idea of using my computer to remotely operate mu AVX and with all the compatible free software available it's been an easy but still expensive hobby I wouldn't trade for anything.
GREAT MOUNT, HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY PLEASED WITH IT
I've had mine for a little over 6 months now and have thoroughly enjoyed using it. It pairs nicely with my Skywatcher 127 Mak and my TPO 6" Newtonian. Mount was extremely stiff out of the box but a couple of minor adjustments had it moving silky smooth. I have easily done guided exposures over 5 minutes with very minimal error. Would definitely purchase another AVX if I needed one!
Very Pleased! Solid and Reliable for Astrophotography ...
This is a really good mount for my OPT Explore Scientific AR127 5 inch f6.5 refractor. If I take the time to level the tripod and polar align, I am getting solid 2 minute and almost 3 minute unguided tracking of Deep Space Objects … without guiding. I will be adding a ZWO guide camera and a ZWO imaging camera from OPT as well and am waiting for them to arrive. I really like doing business with this company. They are customer oriented.
Best mount I ever own
Celestron AVX mount
I haven't been able to use the mount because of the weather where I live. I am very happy with the service and attention I received from the staff at OPT.
Very pleased with every phase of this process, beginning with my interaction with service representative T.J. White and culminating in the purchase of the telescope. I have since made three additional purchases with more to come.
Very gratifying. A terrific product.
