With the Advanced VX 800 200mm f/2.0 Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph GoTo EQ Telescope, Celestron
combines their purpose-built and patented catadioptric astrograph with a
solid and stable motorized computer-controlled GoTo mount to give you a
complete imaging rig that will allow you to capture stunning images of
everything from the marias of the moon to wispy nebulae. This telescope
includes a fast 8" RASA optical tube, the Advanced VX mount, a sturdy 2"
stainless steel tripod, and an array of basic accessories. All you need
is a camera or imaging rig and a dark sky to point it all at.
The Celestron 8" f/2.0 Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph (RASA)
is specifically designed for astrophotography and astro-imaging with a
large aperture and fast focal ratio. Using four-element rare-earth
optical glass lenses ensures accurate color rendition and eliminates
aberrations such as coma and field curvatures. The improved StarBright
XLT multi-coating system, which includes anti-reflection coatings on the
lenses and highly reflective coatings on the mirrors, increases light
transmission throughout the entire optical path. An integrated fan
reduces cooldown time and provides optimal airflow through the optical
tube assembly (OTA) while filtering harmful dust from the interior.
astrograph design is defined by its fast focal ratio, which reduces
exposure times without sacrificing image quality and gives you more time
for multiple shots of the same object for layering or with different
filters. Its internal Ultra-Stable focusing mechanism enables very
precise focusing to clearly resolve topographic details on the Moon or
split double stars and reveal details of most other celestial objects in
between, while minimizing unwanted lateral movement of the primary
mirror when focusing or slewing. Since this OTA is designed as an
imaging scope, a 42mm camera T-adapter and C-mount imager adapter are
included that are compatible with most camera-specific T-rings that are
