The significantly larger base castings offer improved stability and provide more power to overcome load imbalances. The optical design fully corrects for coma and field curvature, delivering a truly flat field, the removable secondary mirror allows fast f/2.8 imaging, and the 9 x 50 optical finderscope is ideal for locating alignment stars. Features StarBright XLT coatings for better light transmission, autoguider port for long exposure imaging, motor with exceptional tracking performance, and NexStar+ hand control with multiple language programming. With an 8 in. optical tube and portable Advanced VX mount, this setup can be easily transported and assembled by one person, with plenty of load capacity to attach a camera and other accessories. This setup is simple enough for a beginner to use, but can also provide years of enjoyment for sophisticated astroimagers. Two-year warranty. Allow extra delivery time.
