Red Flashlight for Astronomy
A red flashlight is without doubt one of the most beneficial accessories you’ll be able to own as an amateur astronomer.

This flashlight has three brightness levels that allow you to adjust the brightness depending on how dark your observing site is. When your flashlight needs power, there’s no need to replace batteries like with traditional flashlights. Just recharge the PowerTank Glow via USB.
A High-Quality Lithium Battery Technology You Can Trust
The power bank has an output port for charging 5V DC devices, including smartphones and tablets. The input port is used to recharge the internal lithium-ion battery.

PowerTank Glow 5000 also has overcharge protection.
Celestron Car Battery Adapter for All Nexstar Telescopes
The hobby of amateur astronomy steadily takes the observer away from sources of AC power. After all, we are at all times in pursuit of the darkest skies imaginable, and that steadily means going off the grid. The most common way to power your telescope in these situations is to use a portable 12V battery pack, like the Celestron PowerTank, or to use power from your car’s battery via the cigarette lighter. The Celestron Car Battery Adapter is the accessory required for connecting any Celestron computerized telescope to a DC power supply or car battery. Plug the round post into the 12V input jack on the drive base of your telescope*, and insert the power connector into the cigarette lighter outlet in your car or on your power supply. The cord is 25 feet long, giving you plenty of reach between your telescope and 12V power source. The barrel connector can be sued with any telescope that uses a receptacle with an outside diameter of 5.5 mm and an inner diameter of 2.1 mm and a “tip positive” polarity. *For use with the following telescopes: NexStar SLT Series NexStar GT Series CGEM Series CPC Series CPC Deluxe Series Advanced VX Series
