Celestron NexStar Evolution 6 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope Product Info

The Celestron NexStar Evolution 6 Astronomy Telescope 12090 has been designed to be the ideal tool for any stargazer. The first Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope with integrated WiFi, the Celestron NexStar Evolution 6 Telescope allows you to leave your hand control behind and slew to all the best celestial objects with a tap of your smartphone or tablet. With the ultra-long life lithium-ion phosphate battery, the Celestron NexStar Evolution 6 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope lets you 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. 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. With the Celestron NexStar Evolution Scope 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. The Celestron NexStar Evolution 6in Telescope 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. The telescope also includes a StarPointer finderscope, two 1.25" Plossl eyepieces, a 1.25" star diagonal, and an AC adapter.
