Celestron AVX a good mount for long exposures?

2 years 5 months ago #506715 by FredTrips
I'm just getting started in astrophotography and looking at getting something around a 100mm telescope (haven't bought yet).  I'm trying to figure out which mount will be best for tracking planets and nebulas and such.  Will the Celestron AVX mount do a good job at tracking these and long exposures?

Possibly. But this seems like an odd question. As most telescopes come with the mount included.

I think he means equatorial mount. It looks pretty good, gets fine reviews....
