Six Inch GoTo Schmidt-Cass Telescope (SCT)

This is a premium model Celestron 6 inch NexStar telescope. The loaner kit includes a "Red Dot" finderscope for initial alignment, eyepieces, and a  good quality 1.25” star diagonal.


The Celestron NexStar Evolution 6 is a microprocessor controlled GoTo telescope. The SkyAlign alignment procedure is simple and only requires the user to point the telescope to any three bright stars.   Once aligned, the "GoTo" mode provides automatic slewing to a selected object. The telescope can be controlled using a traditional hand held controller, or it can be operated using a smart phone or tablet connected to the NexStar Evolution’s built-in WiFi network. The built-in  rechargeable battery will operate the telescope for up to 10 hours on a single charge. Ergonomic handles help with setup. Manual clutches in both altitude and azimuth offer flexibility to manually point the telescope when powered off. The 6-inch NexStar Evolution tracking accuracy is accurate enough to get started in astroimaging by attaching your DSLR camera.
