About the Celestron SkyPortal app
For this Celestron telescope there is a free app available called SkyPortal. This app is compatible with Android as well as iOS.

Celestron's alignment procedure, SkyAlign, is built into the mobile app, so you're ready so see the stars and planets within minutes.
Rechargeable battery and USB charge port
This 9.25-inch NexStar Evolution telescope includes its own built-in rechargeable battery, so you can finally forget about batteries and external power supply. The ultra-long life lithium-ion phosphate battery enables you to enjoy stargazing marathons up to 10 hours on a single charge. Another feature of this telescope is the USB charge port for charging other devices that need to stay powered on during an observing session. When you're for example using the SkyPortal app on your tablet, you can easily charge the battery when it's running low. An intelligent power management system on the telescope senses when battery levels are low and goes into power-saving mode to keep your telescope running for as long as possible.
The all-metal tripod features a handy metal accessory tray with indentations for storing and carrying the tripod. In the two accessory trays you can store up to seven eyepieces. One of the trays is provided with a led illuminator. Setting up your NexStar Evolution is very easy with the large, ergonomic handles. Manual clutches in both the altitude and azimuth offer greater flexibility to manually point the telescope when powered off. During setup, leg etchings help you achieve a level, uniform height for your telescope.
