By: | May 2nd, 2014

If your astronomy skills leave you wondering if you’re looking at the Big Dipper or the Little Dipper, Celestron’s NexStar Evolution will help you become a master astronomer within minutes. NexStar Evoltion is a new Wi-Fi enabled telescope that syncs with your smartphone to essentially create a star-map that the robotic telescope can automatically be positioned to.

Available in 6-inch (1500mm/F10), 8-inch (2032mm/F10), and 9.25-inch (2350mm/F10) versions, the “SkyAlign” configuration system uses GPS coordination and the time of day to properly identify what the user is looking at and the telescope can be automatically adjusted accordingly.

With a rechargeable battery up to 10 hours, Celestron’s new product line is sure to have people feeling like astronomers in the near future! It may just be the most advanced, user friendly telescope on the planet.
