The Celestron NexStar 8SE Telescope demonstrates affordable, optical excellence with an 8-Inch Computerised Schmidt-Cassegrain Design.
Observe celestial objects with exceptional detail through the Celestron NexStar 8SE. With an 8-inch aperture, this telescope offers incredible light-gathering capabilities, meaning you'll be able to observe the cloud bands and the Great Red Spot on Jupiter or Cassini's Division in Saturn's rings. Beyond the solar system, the 8SE will automatically guide you to and track hundreds of stars in the Hercules Globular Cluster or the spiral arms of the Whirlpool Galaxy. Don't forget the Moon - you'll get up close and personal with its craters and geographic features in extraordinary detail.
With a sturdy, high-quality Schmidt-Cassegrain construction placed on a Computerised, Alt-Az Single Fork Arm, the NexStar 8SE offers impressive optical performance at an economical price.
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 8SE 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 8SE 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.
