About this product

Model:  c11sct-vx-12067
Part Number:  12067-CGL

The Celestron Advanced VX is a great option for those looking to upgrade to an 11-inch optical tube.

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 it weighs far less than some other 11-inch telescope kits.

Regarding optics, the 11-inch SCT gathers 41% more light than the 9.25-inch model. You also get Celestron's StarBright XLT optical coatings for even better light transmission.

The new Advanced VX mount is designed to provide optimum imaging performance for smaller telescopes. Features include permanent programmable periodic error correction, all-star polar alignment, and autoguider support. And, you can image across the meridian without doing a meridian flip.

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. 


  • 11” (2800mm) f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain includes StarBright XLT coatings for better light transmission.
  • 41% more light gathering than a 9.25” telescope.
  • 9x50 optical finderscope for locating alignment stars.
  • Integer gear ratios and permanently programmable Periodic Error Correction eliminate recurring track errors from the worm gear.
  • Autoguider port for long exposure imaging.
  • New motors offer improved tracking performance & provide more power to overcome load imbalances.
  • The updated industrial design offers more rigidity, less flexure and improved aesthetics.
  • The new design also enables viewing or imaging across the meridian without interference from the motor housings.
  • Improved latitude range.  It can be used between 7 – 77 degrees latitude.
  • NexStar+ hand control offers multiple language programming (English, French, Italian, German, Spanish).

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.


Please fill in the form below to ask a question.

Please add the two numbers

Q1. Does this comes with a 90 deg star diagonal?

Yes - this does come with a 1.25 inch, 90 degree diagonal.

Q2. Does this comes with a serial cable for connection to a PC?

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.
