The Celestron Nexstar Evolution 8-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope features integral WiFi and a powerful Lithium ion battery. 

Celestron telescopes reach a new level with the NexStar Evolution Series, and the Evolution 8 is no exception.

The Celestron NexStar Evolution 8 telescope is the first Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope with integrated WiFi. Connect your device to NexStar Evolution's built-in wireless network, and explore the universe with the Celestron mobile app for iOS and Android. Slew to all the best celestial objects with a tap of your smartphone or tablet. 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.

The Most User-Friendly Telescope Ever

Celestron engineers designed the Celestron NexStar 8 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 lithium-ion 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.

Setting up your Celestron NexStar Evolution 8 computerized WiFi telescope is quick and painless with large, ergonomic handles. 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 point the telescope when powered off manually. Store up to 7 eyepieces in 2 accessory trays, one with an adjustable red LED illuminator.

Superior Tracking for Entry Level Imaging

While we would not be inclined to recommend anything other than a German equatorial mount for serious imaging application, Celestron does suggest that some basic imaging is possible with the NexStar 8 Evolution Series telescopes. According to Celestron, these are the only fork-mounted telescope in their price range that offers worm gears, and the tracking accuracy is impressive. Lunar and planetary imaging should be possible, but there will be field rotation when imaging deep sky objects in the native altazimuth mode.

The Celestron 8 telescope includes a StarPointer finderscope, two 1.25" Plossl eyepieces, a 1.25" star diagonal, AC adapter, and optional hand control.
