Celestron NexStar Evolution 6-Inch SCT GoTo Telescope

Celestron’s signature telescopes reach a new level with NexStar Evolution 6, the first Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope with integrated WiFi. 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. Our proprietary SkyAlign alignment procedure is built right into the Celestron mobile app, so you’re ready to observe within minutes.

User Friendly

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 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 battery. With this ultra-long life lithium-iron phosphate battery, you’ll be able to enjoy stargazing marathons 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. An intelligent power management system senses when battery levels are low and goes into power-saving mode to keep your telescope running for as long as possible.

All-Metal Tripod

Setting up your NexStar Evolution is quick and painless with large, ergonomic handles. The all-metal tripod features a metal accessory tray with indentations for storing and carrying the tripod. During setup, leg etchings 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 illuminator.

Superior Tracking

If you’re interested in astroimaging, 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 brass 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 HD Pro Wedge to achieve longer exposures for more detailed astrophotos. NexStar Evolution compatible with the wedge when used with the CPC tripod (sold separately).

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. NexStar Evolution is equipped with 4 auxiliary ports--2 on top of the fork and 2 on the bottom. A classic NexStar+ hand control is included, but is not necessary when using NexStar Evolution with the mobile app.

Celestron Tabletop Miniature Tripod with Folding Legs for NexStar Evolution and NexStar SE

Eliminate the need for your full-height tripod and enjoy grab-and-go convenience when you add the Celestron Tabletop Tripod to your NexStar Evolution or NexStar SE telescope. This compact and sturdy accessory is half the size and weight of a standard tripod, making it perfect for travel. The low-profile legs and wide footprint offer added stability, while the convenient tabletop design makes it easier for some observers (especially children) to access the eyepiece.
Setup
The setup is quick and easy compared to a full-height tripod. Simply place the Tabletop Tripod on a camp table, bench, tailgate, or any other flat surface. With a footprint of just 17.5 by 16 inches, you can use it just about anywhere. Then, open and level the tripod legs, attach the mount and telescope and observe.
Features
The Tabletop Tripod has adjustable knobs on each leg and a bubble leveler on the mounting plate to ensure your setup is level before adding the telescope. Just like the NexStar SE and NexStar Evolution’s standard tripod, the Tabletop Tripod has three captured screws on the underside of the mounting plate so you can securely lock your mount and telescope in place. When not in use, the Tabletop Tripod’s legs fold inward and stow neatly under the mounting plate for easy storage and transport.
Compatible Telescopes
The Celestron Tabletop Tripod is compatible with NexStar SE Series - 4SE, 5SE, 6SE, and 8SE telescopes. As well as telescopes of NexStar Evolution Series - 6, 8, 9.25, 8HD, and Limited Edition 8HD.
