Celestron NexStar Evoution Overview

The Celestron NexStar Evolution 9.25 235mm f/10 AZ GoTo Schmidt-Cassegrain OTA & Mount is a complete powerful, portable, versatile, and user-friendly observation platform that can be used for observing everything from the moon and planets to deep-sky objects like galaxies and nebulae. Included with the optical tube assembly is a single arm fork mount, a NexStar controller, and a sturdy stainless steel tripod.

Celestron NexStar Evolution 9.25 235mm f/10 AZ GoTo Schmidt-Cassegrain OTA & Mount

The Celestron NexStar Evolution 9.25 235mm f/10 AZ GoTo Schmidt-Cassegrain OTA & Mount is a powerful, portable, versatile, and user-friendly telescope that can be used for observing everything from the moon and planets to deep-sky objects like galaxies and nebulae. Using Celestron's proprietary StarBright XLT multicoating system, light transmission is increased through the entire optical path with anti-reflection multicoated lenses and highly reflective multicoated four-element rare-earth glass mirrors. While the focal ratio is a slow f/10, the scope's precision tracking system allows it to be a competent astrophotography/astroimaging platform for the moon and planets.

The Evolution comes with two ways to use and control it. The first is to simply download Celestron's free Navigator app for Android and iOS smartphones and tablets. The scope's Wi-Fi provides the connection to the app and expands its capabilities, including an expanded database of over 120,000 objects with detailed information on more than 200 of those objects. Second is the iconic 2-line 16-character NexStar+ computer controller. This is a wired piece of hardware with a database of over 40,000 celestial objects plus several astronomical catalogs, including the Messier and Caldwell. Whether using the controller or a mobile device, the system can assist in properly aligning the scope, provide tours of the objects and events visible whenever and wherever you're viewing, and allow for manual direction and slew control.

Designed for portability, the Evolution features a long-life lithium-iron phosphate battery that provides up to 10 hours of continual use on a single charge. The scope comes with an AC power supply with plugs for the US, EU, UK, and AU outlets. The battery powers the servo motors, auxiliary accessory ports, USB charging port, and built-in Wi-Fi module. Manual clutches in both altitude and azimuth enable you to manually move and point the telescope when it's powered off.

Optical Performance

  • Large 235mm (9.25") f/10 aperture can be used for lunar, planetary, and deep-sky viewing
  • 2350mm focal length produces a high magnification potential
  • Crown optical glass primary mirror
  • StarBright XLT optical coatings: Multilayer aluminum/SiO2 (quartz)/TiO2 (titanium dioxide) mirror coatings with flat reflectivity across the light spectrum for both astrophotography/astroimaging and visual observation
  • Multilayer MgF2 (magnesium fluoride) and HfO2 (hafnium dioxide) anti-reflective lens coatings
  • High-transmission water white glass corrector lens with 97.4% light transmission
  • Internal focusing mechanism
  • Resolution: 0.59 arcsec (Rayleigh); 0.49 arcsec (Dawes)
  • Secondary mirror obstruction: 3.35"; 36%: by diameter; 13% by area
  • Fastar capability: Secondary mirror can be removed and a DSLR or imaging rig mounted in its place for fast wide-field astrophotography

NexStar Controller

  • 2-line, 16-character LCD display
  • 19 fiber optic backlit red LED buttons
  • Database of over 40,000 celestial objects plus 100 user defined
  • Automatically slew to planets, stars, constellations, and a variety of catalogs
  • Camera control: For piggyback wide field or conventional astrophotography through the OTA, the controller can automatically trigger the shutter release to capture the image
  • Anti-backlash compensation programs out play between gears for more precise tracking
  • Tour Mode: Shows a selection of the most popular objects for the time and date you are observing
  • Constellation Tour: Allows the user to take a tour of all the best objects within a particular constellation
  • Alignment procedures: SkyAlign, Auto 2-Star, 1-Star, 2-Star, and Solar System
  • SkyAlign alignment: Takes minutes, with minimal effort or experience—point the telescope at three bright objects in the sky, and the telescope does the rest
  • Nine slew speeds: 4°/sec, 2°/sec, 1°/sec, 0.5°/sec, 2x, 4x, 8x,16x, and 32x
  • Sidereal, Solar, and Lunar tracking rates for observing the fast-moving moon, to slower-moving deep space subjects
  • RS-232 communication port allows for computer control
  • Flash updateable via the Celestron website
