Celestron’s landmark telescopes reach a new level with the NexStar Evolution 8, the first of a series of Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes with integrated WiFi standard. Forget the (included) hand control and slew to all the best celestial objects with a touch of a smartphone or tablet. Simply connect the device to NexStar Evolution’s built-in wireless network, and enjoy viewing the universe with the Celestron mobile app for iOS and Android. Plus, Celestron's standard Planetarium Interface allows viewers to scan the night sky in real time or display a list of celestial objects currently visible based on the time and location of the scope. Celestron's proprietary SkyAlign alignment procedure is built into the Celestron mobile app, so users are ready to observe within minutes.

CELESTRON NEXSTAR EVOLUTION 8 FEATURES:

Control your telescope wirelessly from your iOS or Android smartphone or tablet with the free Celestron mobile app with planetarium interface and SkyAlign technology
Compact, portable 8-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain optical tube with StarBright XLT optical coatings and Fastar compatibility
Computerized GoTo mount with high-performance worm gears and motors for improved tracking accuracy, along with reduced gear backlash
Rechargeable lithium-ion battery with enough power for 10 hours of continuous observing
Improved industrial design with manual clutches and integrated carry handles, plus the added convenience of two accessory trays and a USB charge port for your smart device
Unique enhanced multi-layer mirror coatings made from precise layers of aluminum, SiO2 (quartz), TiO2 (titanium dioxide), and Si02 (silicon dioxide). Reflectivity is fairly flat across the spectrum, optimizing it for both imaging and visual observing.
Multi-layer anti-reflective coatings made from precise layers of MgF2 (magnesium fluoride) and HfO2 (hafnium dioxide). Hafnium—a rare element that costs nearly $2,000 per kilogram—gives a wider band pass than the titanium used in competing coatings.
High-transmission water white glass is used instead of soda lime glass for the corrector lens. Water white glass transmits about 90.5% without anti-reflective coatings; that’s 3.5% better transmission than uncoated soda lime glass. When water white glass is used in conjunction with StarBright XLT’s anti-reflective coatings, the average transmission reaches 97.4%: an 8% improvement.*
