Powerful, portable, versatile: these are just some of the words used to describe the Celestron NexStar Evolution 8, which offers superb views of everything from the Moon and planets to deep-sky objects such as galaxies and nebulae. With the help of the StarBright XLT multi-coating, light transmission is increased, and combined with anti-reflection multi-coated lenses, reflective multi-coated mirrors and four-element rare-earth glass, superb views with high definition and clarity are guaranteed from one observing session to the next.
The beauty of the Evolution 8 is the ease in which you can use and control it; download Celestron’s free Navigator app for Android and iOS, which will expand the capabilities of your instrument thanks to a database of over 120,000 objects, or make use of the Evolution 8’s controller, which can assist in properly aligning the tube, allowing for some stunning tours of objects and astronomical events. What’s more, the Evolution 8 is effortlessly portable, featuring a long-life lithium-iron phosphate battery which can provide up to ten hours of continual use, leaving you unhindered in your adventures around the night sky.
