Description

"This robotic Wi-Fi telescope is the coolest app-cessory in the galaxy," says Wired magazine. The ingenious NexStar Evolution 8 is the first Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope with integrated Wi-Fi, letting you view celestial objects with a tap of your smartphone or tablet. Connect your device to the telescope's built-in wireless network and explore the universe with the free Celestron SkyPortal mobile app for iOS and Android.

Use the planetarium interface to view the night sky in real time, or display a list of currently visible celestial objects. The proprietary SkyAlign procedure is built into the mobile app, so you can observe within minutes. NexStar Evolution 8 includes a built-in ultra-long-life lithium-iron phosphate battery, allowing up to 10 hours of continuous stargazing, while the intelligent power-saving mode keeps the telescope running.

The large, ergonomic handles make setting up NexStar Evolution 8 is easy. The all-metal tripod features a metal accessory tray for storing and carrying, and leg etchings help achieve a level, uniform height. Manual clutches in both altitude and azimuth offer greater flexibility to manually point the telescope when powered off. Store up to seven eyepieces in two accessory trays, one with an adjustable red LED illuminator.

The NexStar Evolution 8 is an excellent, affordable way to get started in astro-imaging, with impressive tracking accuracy that lets you capture images of deep-sky objects by simply attaching your DSLR camera. The Schmidt-Cassegrain optical system offers bright, sharp views with StarBright XLT optical coatings—a great choice for visual observers and budding astro-imagers alike.

NexStar Evolution 8 is equipped with four auxiliary ports: two on top of the fork and two on the bottom. A classic NexStar+ hand control is included, but is not needed with the mobile app. The telescope also includes a StarPointer finderscope, two 1.25" Plossl eyepieces, a 1.25" star diagonal, and an AC adapter.
