    Celestron NexStar Evolution 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope : The Celestron SCT is a powerful, versatile and user-friendly Schmidt-Cassegrain style telescope that can be used for observing Moon, planets, deep sky objects like galaxies and nebulae. Celestron's proprietary StarBright XLT multi-coating system offers increased light transmission throughout the entire optical path with anti-reflection multicoated lenses, highly reflective multicoated mirrors, and 4-element rare-earth glass. The scope's precision tracking system allows it to be a competent astrophotography and astroimaging platform for the Moon and planets with its f/10 focal ratio. The Evolution features two ways to use and control it. There is the 4-line 18-character NexStar computer controller that offers a database of over 40,000 celestial objects plus several astronomical catalogs including the Messier and Caldwell. Computerized GoTo mount with high-performance worm gears and motors are incorporated for improved tracking accuracy, along with reduced gear backlash. To expand the usability of the scope Celestron offers free Navigator app for Android and iOS smartphones and tablets. The scope's WiFi provides the connection to the app and expands the capabilities and functionality. Whether using the controller or mobile device, the system can assist in properly aligning the scope, provide tours of the objects and events visible whenever and wherever the user allows for manual direction and slew control. Rugged pre-assembled tripod with steel tube legs, that is offered along with the telescope, provides a stable platform. The scope offers a deluxe accessory tray for convenient storage of accessories. Designed for portability, the Evolution features a long life lithium-ion phosphate battery providing up to 10 hours of continual use on a single charge. The scope comes with an AC power supply with plugs for the US, EU, UK, and AU outlets. The battery powers the servo motors, auxiliary accessory ports, a USB charging port, and the built-in Wifi. Manual clutches in both altitude and azimuth enable users to manually move and point the telescope when it's powered off.
    Celestron NexStar Evolution 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope is available at Microglobe at discounted price. Microglobe is largest online sport optics store of the UK.
