Celestron Advanced VX 8" Edge HD telescope, little used, many extras - Norwich
Celestron Advanced 8" Edge HD telescope & extras. One owner (bought new by me July 2014) and carefully looked after. Little used and all in very nice, practically unmarked condition. Slight scratching to paint on edge of the orange fitting bar (where it secures to the mount) and signs of where securing bolts are tightened up. This is inevitable as the bar of the tube slides along to obtain correct balance before tightening.

Beautiful edge to edge sharp view, this 'scope is a joy to use - sadly it is little used as I just don't have the time. Fully computerised, set-up takes approximately 10 minutes and is highly accurate.

This is a complete set-up and includes pretty much all you could need for astronomy. Included are:

Mains electricity cable
85 AH 12 volt leisure battery
12 volt cable with crocodile clips and cigarette lighter type connection for battery
Celestron dew shield
Celestron 40mm Plossl eyepiece
20mm eyepiece
Opticstar 7.5 - 22.5mm par focal zoom eyepiece
Moon filter
Soft Cover

Currently retailing new for £1,859 without the various extras.

£1,350 or close offer for the complete kit. Cash on collection only from 10 miles south of Norwich - PLEASE NOTE - I WILL NOT POST.


Manufacturers Detail:

Advanced VX 8” EdgeHD: truly the ultimate entry-level astroimaging package. This package combines the groundbreaking new Advanced VX mount with Celestron’s best optics, the EdgeHD optical system. This setup offers the astroimager maximum versatility – allowing up to 3 different f-stop configurations. Users can attach a camera to the rear of the telescope and shoot at f/10, or attach our 8-inch focal reducer and shoot at f/7. Additionally, EdgeHD is Fastar/Hyperstar compatible, giving imagers the option to shoot at ultra-fast f/2. No matter which configuration you choose, EdgeHD technology gives you pinpoint stars all the way to the edge of the CCD sensor.

With an 8-inch optical tube and our portable Advanced VX mount, this setup can be easily transported and assembled by one person. You’ll also have plenty of load capacity to attach your camera and other accessories. This setup is simple enough for a beginner to use, but can also provide years of enjoyment for sophisticated astroimagers.

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.
