Celestron 11" SCT Advanced VX Telescope

The Advanced VX equatorial mount from Celestron provides you with many of the features found on sophisticated German equatorial mounts, at an extremely affordable price.

Experience the Optimized Performance of the Advanced VX Equatorial Mount from Celestron

  • The Celestron Advanced VX equatorial mount is specifically designed to provide optimum imaging performance for telescopes that weigh 30 lb or less.
  • Track through long exposures using permanently programmable periodic error correction, or image across the meridian without doing a meridian flip, so you can seamlessly image the best part of the night sky.
  • Enjoy features like All-Star Polar Alignment and auto guider support to get precisely timed views, every time.
  • The Advanced VX has a significantly larger base than Celestron's CG5 mount, improving stability under heavy loads. The motors have also been improved. They now offer more torque and can more easily handle slight load imbalances.

Learn More About Celestron’s Optical Tube Assembly

The 11-inch f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain optical tube assembly is the largest telescope choice in the Advanced VX line. Dive deep into the Universe with its impressive aperture, perfect for those deep-sky views! The f/10 focal ratio is a classic choice when it comes to visual observations and planetary photography. When it comes time to wide-field and deep-space imaging, an optional focal reducer or Fastar/Hyperstar will reduce the focal length down admirably.

Included Technology

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.

Compatible Technology


The new Lithium Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery chemistry has significant advantages over other battery chemistries, great for those Astronomers on the go.

Starsense Technology

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.
