Product description

More about the series Advanced VX...

Celestron SC telescopes:

Despite the long focal length of these telescopes, the OTA itself has a very short length, making the system a compact telescope which is extremely easy to transport. Light first hits an aspherically figured Schmidt corrector plate and is then thrown onto a spherical main mirror. This reflects the light back up, throwing it onto a secondary mirror which subsequently throws it back in the direction of main mirror. The light then passes through a central hole in the main mirror and into the focuser at the bottom of the OTA. Thus the system is closed and hence does not suffer from air turbulence which could degrade the image. Of course this also means that the system is optimally protected from dust. The Schmidt plate is multi-coated, ensuring bright images which do not suffer from stray light reflections.

This telescope provides a very good image, boasting high contrast and definition and provides a lot of pleasure when planetary observing. The Schmidt-Cassegrain design provides a good all-round system suitable for both observing and astrophotography and with an enormous range of optional accessories available. Using the bottom end of the OTA to look through means easy orientation. The system is also optimal for occasional terrestrial observing, e.g. birdwatching at close range. Celestron SC telescopes have an aperture ratio of around 1:10 which, so astrophotography is also very easily possible.

Main mirror focusing means a very large range of focus is made available, which allows virtually any common accessory to be used. Two pre-loaded ball bearings are used in the main mirror focus positioning mechanism in order to prevent 'mirror shift' - a typical problem when using simple bushings. The use of high quality materials such as CNC-milled aluminium components, cast steel and stainless steel guarantees extreme robustness with low weight. This means that a very heavy mount is unnecessary, not always the case for other telescope designs.

Features of these telescopes:


  • long focal length with short OTA
  • low weight aluminium OTA
  • high quality XLT multi-coating
  • closed system
  • pre-loaded ball bearings for low mirror shift main mirror focusing

The SC 235/2350 (C925) telescope has the best contrast of the Schmidt-Cassegrain models due to its longer OTA.

All new Celestron mount AVX

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. The AVX 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.

It is not only important which telescope you buy, but also where you buy it.

We provide extra help:

  • We are a leading telescope dealer and know these instruments like the back of our hands.
  • We are always very happy to offer our assistance after your purchase, should you encounter any problems with your telescope’s setup or operation.
  • Our ‘Telescope Basics’ booklet - an 80-page beginner's guide for our telescopes – is provided free of charge with every telescope we sell.

Excellent telescope

Review by Jusa on 05.07.2015 17:00:48

( 5 / 5 )

Excellent telescope, I couldn't be happier having made this choice. This was my first ever telescope, bought it on the premise of "go big or go home". If you're starting out like me and don't have any eyepieces you'll want to get an eyepiece kit - the included 25mm eyepiece is fine but won't get you far. Also for storing and moving the transportation bag for the tube is something you'll want to get - it may be a bit expensive but it'll protect the tube and it's easy to carry. The mount is sturdy and solid. I haven't had the chance to test out the software or tracking yet (it's so bright in here during the summer that you can basically only see the moon, hard to do alignment with no stars) but I expect it'll work as advertised. If you're planning on attaching a DSLR camera on it, you'll need an adapter AND a T-ring for your camera brand. Sure, you can take pictures by hand (with high shutter speed) without those but it's pretty much hit or miss without a stable mount for the camera.
To summarize, nothing bad to say about this telescope! I just took my first photos of the Moon and I can say I'm very happy with the quality.
