Enjoy your telescope without batteries with this AC adapter! When using your telescope at home or near any wall outlet, you can enjoy hours of uninterrupted observing. Running your telescope off of AC power is hassle-free and much more reliable than other methods, especially in cool temperatures, when batteries can lose charge quickly. This 2.5 amp AC Adapter is compatible with the following Celestron computerized telescopes: LCM Series, NexStar SLT Series, NexStar SE Series, SkyProdigy Series, Advanced Series, Advanced VX Series, CPC Series, CPC Deluxe HD Series, CPC Deluxe HD Series -This adapter is sufficient for most visual observing with a balanced telescope. However, for astroimaging using additional equipment, the 5 amp adapter (product #18780) is recommended.
Top Customer Reviews
I bought this and had it come in the same day as my Celestron SE4 because reviews said the batteries didn't last much longer then maybe 30 minutes and with it needing like 8, this was a much needed investment. Ive seen some people say the following, "the adapter in the picture is not the one you get" and that the cord or prong outlet holder thing isn't tight so you have to tape it down. As of right now on mine, it looks exactly like the image (a little bulky for an adapter maybe), the cord does not feel loose at all (yet), and the prong holder thingy just needs to be snapped in (you have to use slightly more then average force to get it in place). Again, I may update this after some use if I remember to.
You can bandaid this issue with some strategically placed tape, but what a shame that this is even necessary.
I was using up batteries like it was my job when just using the telescope in my backyard. Now I just have to run an extension cord to it and not worry about a thing.
