More About the Celestron NexStar Evolution 6” Telescope


 


Celestron’s signature telescopes reach a new level with the NexStar Evolution! It is the first Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope with integrated WiFi so you can 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.


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. The proprietary SkyAlign alignment procedure is built right into the Celestron mobile app, so you’re ready to observe within minutes. 


NexStar Evolution - the Most User Friendly Telescope Ever!


Celestron engineers designed the NexStar Evolution in this Celestron telescope bundle 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 so that you will be able to enjoy stargazing marathons of 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 NexStar Evolution 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 manually point the telescope when powered off. Store up to 7 eyepieces in 2 accessory trays, one with an adjustable red LED illuminator.


Enjoy Superior Tracking While Astro-Imaging!


If you’re interested in astro-imaging, the Celestron 8” NexStar Evolution is an excellent, affordable way to get started. It’s the only fork-mounted telescope in its price range that offers worm gears, along with improved motors. NexStar Evolution’s 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 astronomical imaging, you can add the Celestron Pro HD Wedge to achieve longer exposures for more detailed astrophotos. 


Of course, the 6” Schmidt-Cassegrain optical system offers bright, sharp views with StarBright XLT optical coatings—a great choice for visual observers and budding astroimagers alike.


The 6” NexStar Evolution includes a StarPointer finderscope, two 1.25” Plossl eyepieces, a 1.25” star diagonal,and an AC adapter. A hand controller is available optionally.

High Point Ultimate Plossl Eyepiece Kit




This wonderful eyepiece and filter kit from High Point includes five Plossl eyepieces, a Barlow lens, and six colored filters for planetary viewing! All 12 items are safely stored in an ease-to-carry accessory case!



Five 1.25" Plossl Eyepieces: Representing a wide range of magnifications for your telescope, you will receive a 4 mm, 6 mm, 9 mm, 15 mm, and 32 mm focal length Plossl eyepiece. Our Plossl eyepieces have four optical elements and are fully multi-coated for good contrast views. Each of the lens elements have blackened edges to keep internal reflections to a minimum. A rubber eyecup tops each eyepiece to make viewing more comfortable, block out stray light, and keep your eye from touching the cold metal during observations. Plossl eyepieces have a field of view of around 50º, and work best for observations without eyeglasses. The 1.25" chrome barrel is threaded to accepts 1.25" filters and fit easily into the included High Point 2X Barlow to double their magnification. This means you can get 10 different magnifications out of 5 eyepieces when you add the Barlow to the mix!




High Point 2X Barlow Lens The 1.25" 2x Barlow in the High Point Ultimate Plossl Eyepiece Kit works in conjunction with any 1.25" eyepiece (including the five Plossls included in this set) to double their magnification. Just slide the barrel of any 1.25" eyepiece into the opening of the Barlow, and enjoy twice the power of the eyepiece alone. High-grade glass optics with fully multicoated lenses are used so there is no degradation of the image.




Five High Point 1.25" Colored Filters: Enhance your enjoyment of our Solar System with a #12 yellow, #56 yellow/green, #21 orange, #25 red, or #80A medium blue, or #58a dark green planetary filter. These 1.25" filters thread onto the bottom of most any 1.25" eyepiece barrel. Depending on the color of the filter and the planet being observed, you can bring out details that are not as easily seen without a filter. Observe the ice caps or maria on Mars, the Great Red Spot on Jupiter, and more by adding a filter.




Aluminum Carrying Case: This sturdy and well-built case fits all of the above items in the die-cut foam interior and has room for additional accessories. Take your High Point Ultimate Plossl Eyepiece Kit with you for a huge choice of magnifications and filters wherever you go.



About the Celestron Flexible Dew Shield




A Dew Shield, aka Dew Cap or Lens Shade, is a closed length of metal or plastic that is designed to fit on the front end of your telescope. Once installed, it will reduce the amount of dew that builds up on the corrector plate. The Celestron Flexible Dew Shield can also serve as a Lens Shade by preventing stray light from falling on the corrector plate, which greatly improves contrast. The Celestron Dew Shield is made of a heavy duty material that, unlike aluminum, can lie flat when not in use. It incorporates a clever dual Velcro strip, so that users can adjust the shade to a size that fits either a Celestron 6” or 8” telescope.






About the Celestron 1.25” UHC Light Pollution Reduction Filter




The Celestron 1.25" Light Pollution Reduction (LPR) Filter is designed to selectively reduce the transmission of certain wavelengths of light, specifically those produced by artificial light sources. This includes mercury vapor, and both high and low pressure sodium vapor lights and the unwanted natural light caused by neutral oxygen emission in our atmosphere (i.e. sky glow).




The Celestron Ultra High Contrast (UHC) LPR filter has improved contrast over typical broadband filters. Sky background is darker, and contrast of emission nebulae are noticeably improved. The advanced technology coatings enable the filter to achieve an outstanding transmission of over 97% across the entire bandpass, with total blockage of prominent light pollution lines. The perfect filter for viewing nebula from light polluted skies, or for boosting the contrast of nebula from dark sky sites.




In addition to it's optimum spectral and optical characteristics, the Celestron UHC/LPR filter offers important features that set it apart and result in the highest quality celestial views. The multi-layer dielectric coatings are plasma assisted and ion beam hardened using the latest technology for durability and resistance to scratching. Improved transmission translates to maximum image brightness and contrast. Users of 4"-11" telescopes will especially appreciate the high efficiency, and larger scope users will love the rich star fields and detailed subtle nebular shadings that are left intact. CCD camera imagers will appreciate the broader bandpass and inclusion of an extremely efficient H-Alpha (excited-hydrogen emission passband at 656 nm).
