Who said the perfect beginner telescope doesn't exist?
Find, track and observe celestial objects with the legendary Celestron NexStar 6SE Computerised Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope. With an 6-inch aperture, this telescope offers impressive light-gathering capabilities, meaning you'll be able to observe the craters on the Moon, the rings of Saturn and Jupiter. Beyond our solar system, the 6SE will use its motorised mount to automatically guide to and track hundreds of deep sky objects such as the Orion Nebula. Take it out to a dark sky site and prepare to be taken aback by the extraordinary views of the 6SE.
With a sturdy, high-quality Schmidt-Cassegrain construction placed on a Computerised, Alt-Az Single Fork Arm, the NexStar 6SE offers impressive optical performance at a very reasonable price.
For even better and brighter views, consider the Celestron NexStar 8SE with an 8-inch aperture.
Fully Automated, Computerised GoTo Mount.
Featuring a database of over 40,000 celestial objects, use the included NexStar+ Hand Control to select exactly where you want your telescope to go and what you want it to track as objects move across the night sky. Perfect for both beginners and seasoned astronomers.
Featuring SkyAlign Technology.
The NexStar 6SE is perfect for beginners with an easy setup process. Simply input the date, time and your location and point the telescope at any three bright objects in the sky and your SkyAlign-enabled NexStar 6SE will identify its exact orientation and position in the night sky.
Easily Transportable and Easy-To-Use.
Thanks to the patented, single fork arm mount of the NexStar SE, the telescope is surprisingly portable and allows for a quick and easy setup.
