More About the Celestron NexStar Evolution Mount

Celestron engineers designed the NexStar Evolution 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 mount, 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 NexStar Evolution is an excellent, affordable way to get started. It’s the only alt-azimuth fork mount 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 an OTA and 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.
