Model: c5sct-vx-12025Part Number: 12025
For the intermediate visual observer and beginning astroimager, the Advanced VX 5” SCT is the most affordable Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope on a solid GoTo mount. The Schmidt-Cassegrain optical design is ideal for imagers and visual observers looking for a telescope that is much more portable than the reflector or refractor. The Schmidt-Cassegrain design also eliminates chromatic aberration, making it a good choice for entry-level astroimaging.
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.

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.
