    Comments about Celestron Advanced VX 8 Inch Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope:

    I did not know what to expect. After watching some YouTube vids and getting reaquainted with astronomy, I got the telescope in the mail. It blew my mind the first night of viewing. It did not take half the time or trouble setting it up as I expected. Polar alignment was a breeze and tracking is right on. The tripod kept everything steady. It did help that I ordered other eyepieces and a 2x barlow. Saturn and Mars is as beautiful as I remembered it decades ago. Now that I see the scope is what I know that I needed, time for some astrophotography. Definantly a good buy.

      I bought this telescope and was told when it was going to be at the door and it was on time, which is important to me. I took it out and everything worked. Wasnt the most perfect night but was able to see some things. thx

        Very impressed with the mount, stable with very smooth adjustment. Limited opportunity to use for viewing yet but early results are impressive.
