    A professional 8-inch scope, allowing you to explore the universe, but controlled through your phone? Introducing the Celestron Evolution 8 Wifi! This 8-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain optical tube with StarBright XLT optical coatings and Fastar compatibility has a computerized GoTo mount with high-performance worm gears and motors for improved tracking accuracy, along with reduced gear backlash. The superb light-gathering capability provides views of deep-sky targets in a whole different class to the Evolution 6 or NexStar range.

    The included rechargeable lithium-ion battery will provide enough power for 10 hours of continuous observing, while improved industrial design includes manual clutches and integrated carry handles, plus the added convenience of two accessory trays and a USB charge port for your smart device.

    With an easy-to-use app, search for the astronomical wonders you wish to discover, then go and find them! Choose from an 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 for Android and iOS.

    The Celestron NexStar Evolution 8 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 8 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. Leave your hand control behind and slew to all the best celestial objects with a tap of your smartphone or tablet. Connect your device to built-in Celestron NexStar Evolution 8 Telescope wireless network, and explore the universe with the free Celestron mobile app for iOS and Android. Use the 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 8 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 for more detailed deep sky portraits.

    Even if you don’t own the NexStar Evolution 8 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.
