Telescope hand controls have long been the bain of many amateur astronomers.
Yours truly included.
If I could count the many times I've dropped one, tangled one up on my drive mounts, or had one fail at the most
inconvenient of occassions, well let's just say, I would need three hands.
So when Celestron decided that they would eliminate the problem, by allowing me to use a smartphone or tablet,
well I was all ears.
And that is exactly what they have done with the Nexstar Evolution series.
The NexStar Evolution has it's own wireless network built into it.
And something I have long awaited, is a 9.25 aperture, in a portable set up, and here it's been kindly provided.
Imagine, slewing to your object of choice, with a tap of your smartphone or tablet.
What could be easier?
Here are links to these newly evolved instruments.
They ain't the same old thing, folks!
- Celestron NexStar Evolution 6
- Celestron NexStar Evolution 8
- Celestron NexStar Evolution 9.25
Just in case you don't have a tablet or smartphone yet, (and I know a
few of you.....) Celestron does actually include a hand control
with the technologically superior Nexstar Evolution.
We are closed today for the Ontario Civic holiday (some gov't official
could not think up a better name than that boring one)
but we are back at the helm tommorow at 10am est. You can order online if you like, or give us a call Tuesday.
