Nexstar Evolution 8 5 Star reviewed by BBC Sky at NightCelestron NexStar Evolution 8

Use the planetarium interface to view the night sky in real time or display a list of celestial objects currently visible based on your time and location. Celestron’s proprietary SkyAlign alignment procedure is built right into the Celestron mobile app, so you’re ready to observe within minutes.

Forget about batteries or an external power supply. For the first time ever on a consumer telescope, NexStar Evolution includes its own built-in lithium-ion battery. 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.
