    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?
