The Celestron NexStar Evolution 6 Telescope offers amateurs a powerful optical device which is not only portable, but provides phenomenal views of the universe. Like the original NexStar SE series, the Celestron NexStar Evolution 6 Telescope features the same high quality Schmidt-Cassegrain optics but benefits from the modern improvements including: a smooth computerized alt-azimuth mount, StarBright XLT optical coatings, and no-nonsense SkyAlign technology.

The true draw card is that the Celestron NexStar Evolution series are the first Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes with integrated WiFi. You no longer need your hand controller to slew to all the best celestial objects. Instead you can explore the night sky with a tap of your smartphone or tablet. Connect your device to built-in Celestron NexStar Evolution 6 Telescope wireless network, and explore the universe with the free Celestron mobile app for iOS and Android. Enjoy the convenience of a planetarium interface to view the night sky in real time or display a list of celestial objects currently visible based on your time and location. Celestron’s proprietary SkyAlign alignment procedure is built right into the Celestron mobile app, so you’re ready to observe within minutes.

Forget about batteries or an external power supply. For the first time ever on a consumer telescope, NexStar Evolution includes its own built-in battery. With this ultra-long life lithium-ion phosphate battery, you’ll be able to enjoy stargazing marathons up to 10 hours on a single charge. You can even use NexStar Evolution’s USB charge port to top off the other devices in your life that need to stay powered on during an observing session. An intelligent power management system senses when battery levels are low and goes into power-saving mode to keep your telescope running for as long as possible.

If you’re interested in astroimaging, the Celestron NexStar Evolution 6 Telescope is an excellent, 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 with imaging, you can add the Evolution Equatorial Wedge allowing longer exposures than conventional alt-az tracking, for more detailed deep sky portraits.

Even if you don’t own the NexStar Evolution 6 just yet, check out the Sky Portal app. Search for astronomical wonders you wish to discover, then go and find them! Choose from a seemingly endless database of planets, satellites, stars, Messier objects, constellations, meteor showers, and deep sky targets. Download yourself and try it out today – search for “Celestron Sky Portal” on Google Play or the Apple Store.
