Product description

High quality catadioptric telescope
The Advanced series of Celestron are renewed! The Celestron Advanced VX8-SCT is a Schmidt-Cassegrain (catadioptric) telescope. It is incredibly robust because the housing is made from high quality aluminum. The most impressive aspect of this telescope is its interior. The primary mirror has a diameter of 203 millimeters so it maximizes the light output. Therefore a focal length of 2032 millimeters is reached, so the telescope can produce great magnifications. A 6×30 finderscope is attached to the telescope so heavenly bodies can be found quickly and easily. The Celestron Advanced VX8-SCT has a light output that is over 84 percent higher than the 6 inch edition!

StarBright coating
The telescope mirrors are coated with Celestron's unique Starbright coating. It is designed to make mirrors as strong and effective as they can possibly be. This particular coating exists out of several layers, including materials like aluminum, titanium and magnesium. Celestron improves the smoothness of its mirrors drasticly by using these materials and additionally achieves an increase in light output of more than 40 percent.

Renewed tripod model
The VX8-SCT telescope is built according to a renewed industrial design by Celestron. The engine housing wil never block the abillity to fixate the meridian lines, due to this improved design. Also, this telescope tripod is even more stable than its predecessor. Even the latitude range has been improved; the VX8-SCT can be used for latitudes between 7 and 77.

Eyepiece
The VX8-SCT is equiped with an eyepiece of 20 millimeters and therefore reaches magnifications of 102 times, due to its focal length. The eyepiece easily fits into the telescope's 1.25 inch socket and also suits other telescopes with a comparable socket size. Using different sized eyepieces you will be able to create a variety of magnifications.

The GoTo function
The complete GoTo system with which the telescope is equiped automatically finds heavenly bodies. It is programmed to find more than 40.000 heavenly bodies, which makes it even more fun to use the telescope. The additional Celestron SkyAlign alignment technology makes it really easy to align the telescope and it even allows you to store your own findings in its memory. The next time you use the telescope it can automatically aim towards these particular heavenly bodies. The 200 heavenly bodies that are viewed most are provided with extensive information.

Pros and cons

The objective diameter of 203 millimeters allows a long focal length and therefore a high magnification
The included steel stand is very stable, which is why the telescope is suitable for astrophotography with the right adapter and T2 ring
With the computer-controlled GoTo system you can easily find celestial bodies
The telescope is on the heavy side, so it is difficult to move it
