More About the Celestron NexStar Evolution 6” Telescope
Celestron’s signature telescopes reach a new level with the NexStar Evolution!
It is the first Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope with integrated WiFi so you can
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 NexStar Evolution’s
built-in wireless network, and explore the universe with the 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. The
proprietary SkyAlign alignment procedure is built right into the Celestron
mobile app, so you’re ready to observe within minutes.
NexStar Evolution - the Most User Friendly Telescope Ever!
Celestron engineers designed the NexStar Evolution based on years of customer
feedback. It offers many thoughtful design features that combine to provide you
the best possible experience out under the stars. Forget about batteries or an
external power supply. For the first time ever on a consumer telescope, NexStar
Evolution includes its own built-in lithium-ion battery so that you will be able
to enjoy stargazing marathons of 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.
Setting up your NexStar Evolution is quick and painless with large, ergonomic
handles. The steel tripod features leg etchings to help you achieve a level,
uniform height for your telescope. Manual clutches in both altitude and azimuth
offer greater flexibility to manually point the telescope when powered off.
Store up to 7 eyepieces in 2 accessory trays, one with an adjustable red LED
Enjoy Superior Tracking While Astro-Imaging!
If you’re interested in astro-imaging, the Celestron 8” NexStar Evolution is an
excellent, affordable way to get started. It’s the only fork-mounted telescope
in its price range that offers 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 astronomical imaging, you can add the Celestron Pro
HD Wedge to achieve longer exposures for more detailed astrophotos.
Of course, the 6” Schmidt-Cassegrain optical system offers bright, sharp views
with StarBright XLT optical coatings—a great choice for visual observers and
budding astroimagers alike.
The 6” NexStar Evolution includes a StarPointer finderscope, two 1.25” Plossl
eyepieces, a 1.25” star diagonal,and an AC adapter. A hand controller is
