Description

The robotic Celestron NexStar Evolution 8 Telescope is one of the coolest toys in the galaxy! This gadget earns its name "Evolution" with technology that takes Celestron's signature telescope to a whole new level of performance with integrated WiFi and an 8-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain optical tube with StarBright XLT optical coatings and Fastar capability. This user-friendly telescope is designed with years of customer feedback in mind for professional quality imagery that can be enjoyed without painstaking hours finagling the instrument or requiring a degree in astronomy. You'll scan the horizon, zooming in on the most notable celestial objects with a gentle swipe and tap of your smartphone or tablet! Celestron's free mobile app for iOS and Android makes it effortless to explore the cosmos and a planetarium-style interface allows you to view the night sky in real time or display objects and events currently visible based on time and your telescope's location. But we're getting away from the telescope itself and just talking about the experience! The telescope boasts an improved industrial design and doesn't require batteries or an external power supply. For the first time, consumers can own a telescope with its own built-in battery of lithium-ion phosphate. With this advancement, you can stargaze for up to 10 hours on a single charge and utilize a convenient USB charge port to recharge your other devices as well. Setting up the NexStar Evolution is also simple with its large, ergonomic handles and all-metal tripod with built-in accessory trays for keeping all your essentials nearby. Leg etchings achieve a proper balance and uniform height, manual clutches ensure flexibility in altitude and azimuth, and the trays can house up to 7 eyepieces. It's a great choice for beginner and lifelong hobbyists alike, and those interested in astroimaging will be doubly impressed.
