Details

For those new to astronomy and astroimaging, the Advanced VX 6” Newtonian is an excellent entry-level setup that can grow with you. The Newtonian optical design is excellent for visual observing and offers you the largest aperture for the price. Combined with our Advanced VX mount, you’ll have all the tools you need to learn the basics of imaging.

The saxon 150DS Astrophotography Newtonian Telescope features the following:

  • 150mm aperture
  • 750mm focal length (F/5.0)
  • 2" Dual Speed 10:1 focuser
  • 6x30 finderscope
  • 2" LET 28mm eyepiece.
  • 2" to 1.25" adapter.

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.

Bundle includes laser collimator.
