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.

The planetarium interface displays the night sky in real time or uses your time and location to choose the best objects available for viewing. The SkyAlign alignment procedure is built right into the Celestron mobile app, so you'll be ready to observe within minutes.

NexStar Evolution includes its own built-in battery. With this ultra-long life lithium-ion phosphate battery, you’ll be able to enjoy stargazing marathons up to 10 hours on a single charge. The power management system senses when battery levels are low and goes into power-saving mode automatically to keep your telescope running for as long as possible.

An excellent, affordable way to get started in astrophotography with the NexStar Evolution. It’s the only fork-mounted telescope in its price range that offers brass worm gears, along with improved motors. The NexStar Evolution has impressive tracking accuracy, you can even capture images of deep-sky objects like the Orion Nebula by simply attaching your DSLR camera.

The Wifi Telescope uses a Schmidt-Cassegrain optical system providing bright, sharp views with StarBright XLT optical coatings.

Ships to Australia and New Zealand only.
