DESCRIPTION:


8” (200mm) f/5 optical design gives excellent wide field views


Parabolic primary mirror minimizes spherical aberration to produce a better image


Integer gear ratios and permanently programmable Periodic Error Correction eliminates recurring track errors from the worm gear.


New motors offer improved tracking performance & provide more power to overcome load imbalances


Great for Intermediate Visual Observers and Beginning Astroimagers


Large aperture at an affordable price, our Advanced VX 8” Newtonian provides 78% more light-gathering abilities compared to the 6” model.  The parabolic primary mirror minimizes spherical aberration to produce a sharper image near the edge of the field of view. This scope is great for intermediate visual observers and beginning astroimagers looking for a large aperture with lots of light-gathering power. As you grow in your hobby, you can continue to enjoy all the high-level features of the Advanced VX.


About the Mount


The new Advanced VX mount was specifically designed to provide optimum imaging performance for smaller telescopes. Now your smaller telescope can take advantage of All-Star Polar Alignment and autoguider support. You’ll be able to track through long exposures using permanently programmable periodic error correction. Image across the meridian without doing a meridian flip, so you can seamlessly image the best part of night sky. Advanced VX features significantly larger base castings than our previous design, improving stability under heavier loads. Improved motors offer more torque and can handle slight load imbalances with ease.
