If you've purchased a motorized Goto scope from Celestron, this is an absolute necessity if you plan on observing from your deck/patio often.

However, if the majority of your planned observing will take place in a field (i.e. far from an outlet). I would bypass this and go straight for the Power Tank or car adapter. Also, if you plan on doing a lot of observing from a deck, I highly recommend the vibration suppression pads, because you'd be surprised how much even a well-built deck will vibrate as you or others walk across it.

All that being said, this product does what it says and comes in handy when observing near an outlet. You don't need to worry about draining batteries or a rechargeable power supply. The only con I would include is that this should have been a supplied accessory in the first place, rather than having to pay extra for it.

This should be included with the scope

I felt a bit shafted that this was not included with a [$] scope. Its works great and is almost a necessity considering the batteries do not last long at all. ...Read complete review

    AC power for Advanced VX equatorial telescopes.
    this doesn't have the screw on connector like the DC has, but then again if you trip it pulls out without taking the scope with it.

          Comments about Celestron AC Adapter for Computerized Celestron Telescopes:

          I bought this adapter for a Celestron NexStar SE8 that I bought for my nephew in June of 2013. The first issue I had was the poor fit. It was very loose when plugged into the telescope. Just about every time the telescope was skewing it would fall out thus we'd have to re align the scope all over again. Very frustrating! In December of 2013, it just stopped working. It didn't last six months.

          Celestron needs to come up with a better design. First, it should be threaded so it won't disconnect. And second, it should last a lot longer than 6 months. Celestron does offer an ac adapter that IS threaded but sadly it's not compatible with the NexStar scopes.

          Customer Q & A

          3 Questions About This Product
          Q: "Will this work with a CPC 1100?"
          A: Yes, the Celestron AC adapter will work just fine with a CPC 1100.
          Q: "Does this power supply work in NZ with 240V power supply?"
          A: The AC Adapter for Computerized Celestron Telescopes won't work with New Zealand's house current. You'd need a power converter to lower the voltage to 110 volts.
          Q: "Is this compatible with the original NexStar 8 (that is, pre-dating the 8i and later models?"
          A: Yes, the AC Adapter for Computerized Celestron Telescopes works with the NexStar 8.
