    Ideal for Beginners

    The Celestron Evolution 8 telescope is for those who are looking to explore astronomical imaging and other visual pursuits. This fork-mounted telescope has built-in motors that promise tracking accuracy. Astronomers can even capture the images of various celestial objects by attaching a high-end planetary imaging DSLR or CCD camera to the telescope. The telescope has an integrated lithium-ion battery that continuously runs for 10 hours, enabling the stargazers to observe the sky without interruption.

    EdgeHD Optical Tube

    The 20 cm aplanatic, flat-field EdgeHD optical tube is designed to produce smooth and high-resolution images without any aberrations, such as field curvature or coma. This optical system not only reduces the off-axis star coma, but also produces the astrograph-quality celestial view throughout the field of view. Over three times flatter as compared to the Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope, this EdgeHD optical tube provides a sharp view across the sensors. It features the StarBright XLT coatings that enable high light transmission for producing a clear, sharp, and smooth view of the celestial objects.

    Software Included

    The SkyPortal app includes StarSense AutoAlign for automatic alignment of the telescope to save time and effort. This app helps astronomers scan the night sky and analyse all the star patterns present at that moment. Professionals can even add up to ten alignment stars for accurate telescopic alignment. The Starry Night special edition software comes with the telescope, which helps gather detailed information about the celestial objects, so that the next imaging and observation sessions can be planned. Along with these two software, the Celestron telescope also includes the CPWI software with a graphical planetarium interface and an advanced mount. This helps you identify and track the celestial bodies more accurately.
