Enjoy impressively-bright views with the Celestron NexStar Evolution 8 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope (Wi-Fi Enabled).
The Celestron NexStar Evolution 8 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope (WiFi Enabled) offers excellent views and a never-ending list of features at a great price.
With a huge 8-inch OTA.
With a generous 8-inch aperture and StarBright XLT Coatings, the NexStar Evolution 8 offers breathtakingly-bright views of deep-sky objects, at a resonable price, weight and size. The Evolution 8-inch OTA also features a long focal length of 2032mm, offering great views of the planets, the moon and deep-sky objects. This super powerful telescope has a focal ratio of f/10.0 to observe celestial objects up close.
The Evolution 8 EdgeHD model offers edge-to-edge clarity for even better views.
And the revolutionary NexStar Evolution Computerised Mount.
The NexStar Evolution Mount is feature-packed, making it great for beginners and more serious astronomers alike. The Evolution Mount is powered by an in-built, rechargeable, lithium-iron phosphate battery with a continuous runtime of 10 hours. This makes it great for travelling, especially when paired with a relatively compact 8-inch SCT such as the Evolution 8 Optical Tube Assembly.
The Evolution Mount also features built-in WiFi. This means that in addition to using the included NexStar+ Hand Controller, you have the option to control the telescope using your smartphone or tablet.
Most importantly, the NexStar Evolution is a step above the NexStar SE. With manual release clutches and precisely machined worm gears for both axes, the Evolution Mount is incredibly robust and reliable. Expect great stability with the NexStar Evolution.
Optics Central is an Authorised Retailer of Celestron. The Celestron NexStar Evolution 8 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope (WiFi Enabled) is backed by the Celestron 2 Year Warranty.
