For those looking to step up to an 11-inch optical tube, Advanced VX is a great option. Not only is it one of Celestron’s most affordable 11-inch telescopes, it is also one of the most portable. The Advanced VX mount is strong enough to support this optical tube assembly and a couple of small accessories, yet weighs far less than some of our other 11-inch telescope kits. As far as optics go, the 11-inch SCT gathers 41% more light than the 9.25-inch model. You also get our StarBright XLT coatings for even better light transmission.
The new Advanced VX mount is specifically designed to provide optimum imaging performance for smaller telescopes. Features include permanent programmable periodic error correction, all star polar alignment, autoguider support and the ability to image across the meridian without doing a meridian flip so you can seamlessly image the best part of night sky. Compared to the earlier CG5-GT mount the Advanced VX also has larger base castings for improved stability under heavier loads and upgraded motors for more torque.

You can never be sure until you have got the boxes ready to open in anticipation, Wow, as this is my second telescope i am absolutely delighted. the tripod is for me is outstandingly rock solid the engineering of the mount head is quality throughout. Now for the best bit the C11 is a step up from my XT10i, after getting my first look at the OTA you just know...... an amazing piece of engineering. I have read the manual a couple of times because there is a lot to take in. People like me do not spend this amount without carefully reviewing and research weighing up everything. I have no doubt that when i am able to go outside (it has been raining with stormy weather since the purchase)i can at last look though the telescope and the wonder of the universe with confidence using this astronomical marvel. It is for me a excellent purchase.
Yes - this does come with a 1.25 inch, 90 degree diagonal.
No, unfortunately this is not supplied with a computer serial cable. These are available separately at our website here: Serial cable for Skywatcher and Celestron mounts (Choose the 'Celestron' option).Many newer computers come without an RS-232 port so to use this cable you will need a USB to RS-232 adapter which we can also provide: Celestron USB to RS-232 Adapter.
