ENJOY THE FEATURES OF THE CELESTRON NEXSTAR EVOLUTION 8-INCH
The Most User-Friendly Telescope Ever
Celestron engineers designed the NexStar Evolution based on years of customer feedback. It now includes its own built-in battery! With this long-lasting lithium-iron-phosphate battery, enjoy stargazing marathons for up to 10 hours on a single charge. In addition, use NexStar Evolution’s USB charge port to top off your other electronic devices that need to stay powered on during observation. Your telescope will go into power-saving mode when it senses low battery life to keep power running for as long as possible.
Setting up your NexStar Evolution is quick and simple. The all-metal tripod features a metal accessory tray with indentations for storing and carrying the tripod. During setup, leg etchings will help you adjust your telescope to the perfect height. Manual clutches in both altitude and azimuth offer greater flexibility to manually point the telescope when powered off.
Superior Tracking Fit for Astro-Imaging
If you’re interested in astro-imaging, the 8-inch NexStar Evolution is an excellent and affordable way to get started. It’s the only fork-mounted telescope in its price range that offers brass worm gears, along with improved motors. NexStar Evolution’s tracking accuracy is so impressive, you can capture images of deep-sky objects like the Orion Nebula by simply attaching your DSLR camera. As you progress in the hobby of astro-imaging, you can add our HD Pro Wedge to achieve longer exposures for more detailed astro-images.
All-Star Polar Alignment
Get ready for a night of astroimaging with your mount faster than previously thought possible with All-Star Polar Alignment. This innovative software solves the time-consuming problem of trying to pinpoint the North Celestial Pole.
The new Lithium Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery chemistry has significant advantages over other battery chemistries, great for those Astronomers on the go.
SkyAlign alignment technology makes setting up a computerized telescope simple, fast, and accurate. Just point the telescope at any three bright objects — stars, bright planets, or even the Moon — and your telescope can orient itself with the night sky.
Celestron’s SkyPortal planetarium app is an astronomy suite that redefines how you experience the night sky. Explore the Solar System, thousands of stars, star clusters, nebulae, galaxies, asteroids, comets, and satellites. You can even control and automatically align a compatible Celestron telescope from a smartphone or tablet using StarSense and WiFi technology.
Celestron’s patented StarSense Technology makes it easier than ever to locate objects in the night sky, even if you’ve never used a telescope before. Turn it on and push ‘Align.’ In about three minutes, you’re ready to observe!
