COMPREHENSIVE AND ADVANCED SOFTWARE

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?
