Celestron NexStar Evolution 9.25 Computerized Telescope
The Celestron 9.25" NexStar Evolution Computerized Telescope is a part of the Nexstar Evolution series which is known to be one of the most user-friendly telescopes ever! Celestron engineers designed NexStar Evolution based on years of customer feedback. It offers many thoughtful design features that combine to provide you the best possible experience for beginners and more advanced telescope users alike. One of the best things about this telescope series 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 difficult to set up and to 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're interested in astroimaging, the 9.25" 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 astroimaging, 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 astroimagers alike.
All-Star Polar Alignment
Get ready for a night of astroimaging with your mount faster than previously thought possible with All-Star Polar Alignment. This innovative software solves the time-consuming problem of trying to pinpoint the North Celestial Pole.
The new Lithium Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery chemistry has significant advantages over other battery chemistries, great for those Astronomers on the go.
SkyAlign alignment technology makes setting up a computerized telescope simple, fast, and accurate. Just point the telescope at any three bright objects — stars, bright planets, or even the Moon — and your telescope can orient itself with the night sky.
Celestron’s SkyPortal planetarium app is an astronomy suite that redefines how you experience the night sky. Explore the Solar System, thousands of stars, star clusters, nebulae, galaxies, asteroids, comets, and satellites. You can even control and automatically align a compatible Celestron telescope from a smartphone or tablet using StarSense and WiFi technology.
Celestron’s patented StarSense Technology makes it easier than ever to locate objects in the night sky, even if you’ve never used a telescope before. Turn it on and push ‘Align.’ In about three minutes, you’re ready to observe!
