Celestron put together the Advanced VX 11" f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain GoTo Telescope
to provide a complete observational platform that includes an oversized
aperture OTA, the NexStar+ GoTo computer hand controller that guides a
motorized equatorial mount, and tripod, plus an array of accessories to
get you set up and observing the Moon, planets, and especially deep-sky
subjects like nebulae, galaxies, and star clusters.
Outfitted with an over-sized aperture, long effective focal length, and their proprietary StarBright XLT optical coatings, the Celestron C11-A XLT 11" f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope
provides power and portability. The coating system consists of
anti-reflection coatings on the corrector plate, highly reflective index
mirror coatings, and low-absorption/high-transmission glass components
to ensure that the maximum amount of light is gathered and transmitted
to the user's eye. This system ensures bright and clear high-contrast
images with accurate color rendition across the entire visual spectrum
without visible distortion at the edges. Celestron includes a standard
1.25" visual back to accept eyepieces and accessories such as the 40mm
eyepiece and 90° diagonal supplied with the optical tube assembly (OTA).
This OTA is offered here without a mount or tripod for users who
already have a support system - just ensure the mount's payload capacity
exceeds 27.5 pounds to safely carry the weight, and has a Vixen-style
saddle to match the OTA's CG-5 mounting plate.
Engineered and optimized for astrophotography with mid-sized optical tube assemblies, the Celestron Advanced VX GoTo German Equatorial Mount
delivers the performance required for clear images through the use of
dual-axis low-cog DC servo motors and backlash compensation. Added to
this are encoders on the motors and Permanent Periodic Error Correction
(PPEC) which help to improve positioning and tracking precision and
ensure your target object stays centered for long-exposure photography
techniques. Supporting the mount is a large 2" stainless steel tripod
that has a wide stance for stability on most terrain, and a center tray
that holds 1.25" and 2" eyepieces and accessories and acts as a leg-lock
to further stabilize while helping to minimize vibrations.
brain of the system is the NexStar+ computer controller which is
equipped with a database of over 40,000 objects, including the planets,
stars, nebulae, galaxies, and the complete Messier catalog; it can also
be programmed with up 100 custom user-defined objects with filters to
create custom object lists. Its intuitive menu-driven user interface
makes observing the heavens fast and easy; features such as guided
tours, extended information on 200 popular objects, and multiple
alignment options make the NexStar+ controller an invaluable tool to new
users and experienced star-gazers alike.
