Celestron Night Vision Red LED Flashlight Celestron Car Battery Adapter 25 Foot Celestron Sky Map - Planisphere

Celestron's Night Vision Flashlight is a purpose-built astronomy illumination tool, that uses two red LEDs to preserve night-adjusted vision while providing light to set up, read/write notes, change eyepieces, or navigate. Its combined rotary variable brightness control/on-off switch allows you to adjust the brightness over a wide range up to 25 lumens.

At the maximum brightness setting, the emitted light is bright enough to locate dropped items or disassemble your telescope after observing. The medium brightness levels will properly illuminate a star chart without affecting your pupil's darkness-adapted dilation. At the lowest brightness setting, there's just enough light to determine a filter designation or an eyepiece's focal length.

The Night Vision Flashlight is powered by a single 9-volt battery that lasts for up to 12 hours on high and as much as 300 hours on low The supplied 20" (51 cm) cord allows you to hang the light around your neck when not in use.

This adpapter allows you to link your telescope drive directly to the cigarette lighter receptacle of your car, for a quick and easy 12v DC power source in one step. Cord is 25ft in length.

The Celestron Sky Map provides a fun way to read the night sky, and is an ideal teaching guide. Just as you wouldn't set off upon a road trip without a road map, you needn't try navigating the night sky without a map either. Even if you're experienced around major constellations, these maps help locate all kinds of fascinating objects.

The front cover has a specially designed luminous planisphere that rotates to simulate the seasonal progression of celestial objects through the sky. When the planisphere is pre-exposed to light, star positions glow brightly against a dark background-mimicking actual constellations. More than a thousand stars and deep-sky objects are listed and charted. The illustrated reference section provides basic information and the visual characteristics of various types of stars, nebulae and galaxies.

To use, hold the map above your head with the arrow facing celestial north. Turn the dial to the present date and time, and the map shows you exactly what is above you. Turn the dial as the hour changes to keep up with the orbiting sky show.
Please note - these maps are for use in the northern hemisphere only.

    Celestron Variable Polarizing Filter (1.25") Celestron AC to DC Power Adapter Celestron 45-Degree Erect Diagonal (1.25")

    The 1.25" Celestron Variable Polarizing Filter allows you to control the amount of light transmitted through to your eye so you can tailor it to the brightness of the object you're looking at—reducing the brightness and glare on celestial objects like the moon, Venus, and even bright double stars.

    This filter does not alter the color of the object you're observing, making it a great choice for astroimaging, especially when imaging the surface of the Moon. By reducing the brightness, lunar details become more pronounced and defined. This filter can also be used to darken the blue-sky background when hunting for planets like Venus or Jupiter during daylight, making the planet stand out from the background. Simply rotate the filter's lower ring to adjust the light transmission from just 1% (blocking 99% of incoming light) up to as much as 40%. Having this level of control over the filtration allows you to precisely set it to a specific target and current viewing conditions so you can get the best view possible. Standard threads on both sides allow it to be installed on just about any 1.25" eyepiece, and stacked with color or specialty filters to further refine and enhance the viewing experience.

    The Celestron AC to DC Power adapter has a standard 2-prong North American power plug on a ~6' cord on one end, and a 5.5mm circular DC output jack on a ~6 cord on the other side; in between is a transformer box. The North American plug cord is detachable from the transformer; the cord with the 5.5mm DC plug point is permanently attached to the transformer. Output of this unit is consistently 12 volts DC.

    This allows AC 120-240V, 50-60 Hz AC current supplies to power any of the Celestron telescopes with the 5.5mm DC input on their drive base, a long list of items which includes the Advanced, Celestar 8, CG9/11/14, CI700, CPC, CGE, NexStar i, NexStar SE, Celestron NexStar i, NexStar SE, Ultima 2000 series and others.

    Celestron's erect image diagonals are Amici prism designs, allowing you to look into the telescope at a 45° angle at images which are upright and laterally correct. This is extremely comfortable for terrestrial viewing or when sharing the viewing experience between those of varying heights, and comes at the expense of a loss in brightness versus a 90° diagonal-which would show images upright but laterally reversed.

    Celestron PowerTank Lithium LT Power Pack Celestron Luminos 10mm Eyepiece (1.25") Celestron PowerSeeker 127EQ 127mm f/8 Reflector Telescope

    Designed specifically for the unique needs of computerized telescopes, the Celestron PowerTank Lithium LT Power Pack is built with a rechargeable lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide [Li(NiMnCo)O2] battery that delivers a steady charge over long periods and requires less maintenance than traditional sealed lead-acid batteries. A built-in 12 volt regulated circuit provides your telescope with up to 8 hours of consistent power at the proper voltage for optimum performance, and to keep your other gear like phones, cameras, or handheld GPS units going while you're out observing there is a rapid-charge USB port. Ideally suited for off-the-grid applications, the housing is compact and lightweight so it won't take up a lot of space in your kit. The PowerTank comes with a 6.5-foot telescope power cord and an AC charger.

    Celestron engineered their Luminos 10mm Eyepiece to provide you with a comfortable 82° field of view, and made the entire series parfocal, allowing you to change it out with other Luminos eyepieces without having to adjust the focus. This allows you to spend more time viewing while reducing the chance of hitting the scope out of alignment. This model features a 7-element lens configuration and is fully multi-coated to improve image brightness and contrast. Its 1.25" diameter barrel fits the same size drawtube or accessories, and has machined filter threads to accept eyepiece filters. Made of a lightweight and durable aluminum alloy with an anodized finish, the body has a slip-resistant rubber collar, and an innovative retractable eyecup that pops up when you need it and drops down when you don't with a simple twist.

    Ideal for near and deep-sky observation, Celestron's PowerSeeker 127EQ 127mm f/8 Reflector Telescope features a respectable focal length and a large, parabolic mirror that produce detailed images of the Moon, clear views of the planets, and the ability to resolve bright distant objects such as nebulae and galaxies. The scope is outfitted with a 1.25" rack-and-pinion focuser and two eyepieces to get new users started, and a 3x Barlow lens that effectively triples the magnification of any eyepiece used with it to expand the usability.

    The included manual equatorial mount features slow-motion control cables with large knobs to make it easy to track objects even when wearing gloves, while also minimizing vibrations caused by handling the mount with your hands; and clearly visible indicators on the Right Ascension and Declination axes. An adjustable-height aluminum tripod rounds out the rig with a tray for accessories such as eyepieces, filters, and lights.

    Celestron 90-Degree Mirror Diagonal (2") for SCT Scopes Celestron NexStar 8SE 203mm f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain GoTo Telescope

    The Celestron 90-Degree Mirror Diagonal (2") is a star diagonal with StarBright XLT coating, for use with Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes with the 2"-18 threaded device.

    Star diagonal is the term commonly associated with 90° mirror diagonals such as this, which let you view objects that are at a 90° angle from the direction the telescope is pointing. This allows quite comfortable viewing when the telescope is at or near the zenith (directly overhead), and is fairly comfortable when observing terrestrial imagery as well-albeit a bit unorthodox at first.

    Celestron's erect image diagonals are Amici prism designs, meaning that images are upright and laterally correct. This design, however, instead renders images which are laterally reversed but are brighter than erect image diagonals. This diagonal is used with 2" focusers and can be used with either 2.00" or 1.25" eyepieces, thanks to the included adapter which reduces the eyepiece barrel diameter to accept the smaller size.

    Representing the largest aperture in the series and drawing in more light to see deeper into space than smaller versions, Celestron's NexStar 8SE 203mm f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain GoTo Telescope is a powerful yet portable scope that can be used for observing everything from the Moon and planets to deep-sky objects like stars, galaxies, and nebulae, while maintaining the user-friendly interface of the SE series. Using Celestron's proprietary StarBright XLT multi-coating system, light transmission is increased throughout the entire optical path with anti-reflection multi-coated lenses, highly reflective multi-coated mirrors, and crown optical glass elements. While the focal ratio is a relatively slow f/10, the mount's precision tracking system allows it to be a competent shorter-exposure astrophotography imaging platform for the Moon and planets.

    Driving the dual servo motors on the mount is the brain of the NexStar 8SE: The iconic NexStar+ computer hand controller. Packed with 40,000+ celestial objects, it can hold up to 100 additional user-defined destinations and is updatable via the Celestron website. It has multiple alignment procedures to get you observing fast, including the super-easy SkyAlign system. Capable of being used in the northern or southern hemispheres, the NexStar has sidereal, lunar, and solar tracking speeds to accurately follow near and deep-sky objects, plus nine slew speeds and the ability to automatically trigger a camera's shutter release for Fastar or piggyback wide-field photography or conventional prime-focus astrophotography.
