9.25-inch or 235mm is a ideal aperture for intermediate to avid users for planetary objects viewing, particularly for Saturn's ring or Martian features! The package - Advanced VX 9.25” Go-To SCT is great for planetary imaging, but may not be an excellent choice for deep-sky objects imaging. However, with the combination, it's looking to gather 33% more light than our 8” telescope, but without the added weight of our 11” optical tube. No single piece of this kit weighs more than 20 lbs, making it easy for one person to transport and assemble.
This f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope features Celestron’s StarBright XLT coatings for better light transmission and a 6x30 optical finderscope for locating alignment stars.
