An essential piece of kit for any astronomer with a computerised telescope is a power bank. Clifton Cameras has a range of the best power banks for astronomy on the market including the PowerTank Lithium LT that was designed for astronomers by astronomers and the PowerTank Lithium Pro which will power a telescope for up to 17 hours.
Not just for those with a computerised telescope, the power supplies also have a red LED light for viewing star chats, changing eyepieces and finding filters in the dark. Better for astronomy than white light, red light allows your eyes to see in the dark without the pupils contracting and dilating as you switch between artificial light and the darkness of the night sky.

I am using a computerised telescope for a long night of observation.
Go for the Celestron PowerTank Lithium Pro. It can power a telescope for up to 17 hours, which even for the hardy astronomers out in the middle of winter, is long enough to experience the entire night.
I have a manual telescope and want to use a star finding app on my phone.
Go for the Celestron PowerTank Glow 500. This 2-in-1 device is a red LED flashlight that can also charge your smartphone at the same time, letting you concentrate on locating Ursa Minor rather than worrying about a 1% battery notification.
I have a computerised telescope and want the safest battery for my kit.
Go for the Celestron PowerTank Lithium LT. This PowerTank is designed for astronomers by astronomers and has a variety of features that work specifically for the unique requirements of a telescope including a voltage regulator that ensures the longevity of your telescope.
My telescope is for life, now I need a power supply that is too.
Go for the Celestron PowerTank Lithium. Its lithium phosphate composition degrades at a much slower pace than traditional chemistries used in rechargeable batteries and has an impressive un-charged shelf life of 10 years.
I want a power bank that is safe for me and the environment.
Choose any out of the Celestron Lithium range. Powered by Lithium-Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) these batteries are safer than sealed lead batteries and don’t use environmentally hazardous elements such as cobalt or lead commonly found in other rechargeable batteries.
