The best experience for beginners and more advanced telescope users alike
One of the best things the Celestron 6-inch NexStar Evolution is that there is no use for external power supply as it is built-in. It comes with a lithium-ion battery so that you will be able to enjoy up to 10 hours of stargazing on a single charge. This series also comes with a USB charge port to top off the other devices in your life that need to stay powered on during an observing session.
In the past, most large telescope systems have been challenging to set up and move. The NexStar Evolution series is far from that with large, ergonomic handles that help you move it easily from place to place. Its set up is also easy enough for any beginner astronomer to understand. 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. You will also be able to store up to 7 eyepieces in 2 accessory trays, one with an adjustable red LED illuminator.
If you are interested in astro-imaging, the 6-inch 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 astro-imaging, you can add our Pro HD Wedge to achieve longer exposures for more detailed astrophotos. Of course, 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.
