Celestron NexStar Evolution 9.25
Celestron NexStar Evolution 9.25 WiFi enabled Telescope
The Celestron Sky Portal App is based on the Excellent Sky Safari 4 and has an excellent and intuitive 'tap and go' user interface. It can thankfully be set to a night vision friendly red mode so is not too bright to use in the dark! and has a seachable database of objects and descriptions including a list of 'tonight's best' objects.
The App is available on Android and iOS. For download links and more details just click the image on the right.
In day to day use we have found the ergonomics of NexSatr Evolution to be excellent too, especially the addition of extra handles on the mount base make lifting the telescope in and out of the box and general assembly easier too. Clutch releases on each axis, handy scales on the tripod legs and extra eyepiece holders all show that Celestron have listened to customers and have thought about real world use. Overall we think the Celestron NexStar Evolution is more than worthy of its 5 Star rating.
