    Impressive Optical Design

    The Celestron RASA plays a defining role in shaping modern as well as professional astronomy. Featuring a 400 mm focal length, this incredible telescope produces a fast focal ratio to make deep space observation as easy and intuitive as possible. Plus, this telescope is based on Rowe-Ackermann Schmidt Astrograph (RASA) design that is well-suited for professional astrophotography and Astro-imaging. Making this as relativity are features, such as StarBright XLT coating for high light transmission, four-element rare-earth glass for aberration-free images, and wide spectral range for clear, crisp visuals of the deep space.

    Intuitive Software And Controller

    The versatile and intelligently designed telescope has built-in NexStar+ software that ensures quick, accurate, and hassle-free observation. In addition to these, the software has a huge database of 40,000+ stars and celestial objects with detailed information of more than 200 objects. With over nine different slew speeds, the Celestron VX telescope ensures precise tracking. This is especially effective when you have to spend more time observing and less time configuring. Also, this professional telescope has multiple alignment modes, which saves you the trouble to align it manually. All these features can be accessed via a convenient hand controller for remote access.

    Permanent Periodic Error Correction

    Equipped with a Permanent Periodic Error Correction (PPEC), this telescope provides accurate tracking. This is so because the PPEC detects and corrects tracking errors permanently. The tracking improves over time and requires fewer corrections for all future observation sessions.

    Vixen-style Mount

    This telescope works efficiently when paired with the Vixen-style mount or VX mount. The intricately designed mount has a payload capacity of up to 13.5 kg. Additionally, this mount features dual-axis DC servo motors that help to track celestial objects with high accuracy and reduced vibration. This further paves way for uninterrupted tracking below the meridian point, enabling you to observe while on a hilltop, balcony, or rooftop.
