Announcing the Celestron NexStar Evolution Telescope


Read our detailed review of the Celestron NexStar Evolution 8" Telescope here!


The Celestron NexStar Evolution Telescope Series is the latest creation from Celestron.  A multi-year work in progress, the engineers at Celestron have collected the requests of their customers and put them all into one beautiful telescope!


The Celestron NexStar Evolution Telescope is the first telescope to combine smart phone app technology with traditional telescope features. The engineers at Celestron really hit the mark with the Celestron NexStar Evolution. Some of our favorite features include:


  • Smart phone app control of your telescope allows you to point your smart phone or tablet at the sky, identify an object with the app's planetary interface and go to that object with the push of a button.


  • The app identifies objects for you and even has the ability to offer an abundance of information on any of the 120,000 objects in the app database.


  • The Celestron NexStar Evolution's computerized GoTo mount has high-performance worm gears and motors for improved tracking accuracy, along with reduced gear backlash.


  • No need to worry about batteries! The Celestron NexStar Evolution has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery with enough power for 10 hours of continuous observing.


  • The NexStar Evolution has an improved industrial design with manual clutches and integrated carry handles, plus the added convenience of two accessory trays and a USB charge port for your smart device.


There really is nothing to not like about the Celestron NexStar Evolution! The incorporation of planetarium app technology had made the Evolution a telescope the entire family can be entertained by. The only question left is what size will you buy?
