Summary



Portable Performance

Portability and serious performance come together in the NexStar 6SE. Celestron's first new Schmidt-Cassegrain optical system in over a decade is now available in a high performance Altazimuth computerized telescope. With a total weight of 30 lbs including the tripod, the ultra portable 6SE features a precision optical system with 1500mm focal length (f/10) and offers 44% more light gathering than a 5" telescope.

The NexStar 6 SE has all the same features as Celestron's most advanced computerized GoTo telescopes, including our revolutionary SkyAlign™ alignment technology, a sky tour feature, a database of over 40,000 celestial objects and easy to use hand control.

Plug the optional CN-16 GPS Accessory into NexStar's auxiliary port and download data from orbiting GPS satellites for truly quick and easy alignments. The universe may be full of mysteries, but using the NexStar 6 SE isn’t one of them.

Computerized Convenience

In the tradition of Celestron's famous orange optical tubes, the new NexStar SE Family combines the classic heritage of the original orange tube telescopes with state-of-the-art features including a fully computerized operating system, flash upgradeable hand control, our superior StarBright XLT coatings, our revolutionary SkyAlign™ telescope alignment software and much more.

Whether you are a seasoned astronomer looking for a portable scope with advanced features, or just starting your astronomy adventure and looking for an easy way to enjoy the night sky, a NexStar SE will help you take a closer look.

Every NexStar SE includes a version of The Sky® software Level 1 Planetarium software for exploring the Universe on your PC and printing out custom star charts of the sky. In addition, you receive our NexRemote software that allows you to operate your telescope via your PC. Software package valued at over $100 included free with your NexStar SE!

Great first telescope - Review by
Overall Score
100
This is my first telescope, and it's been a huge learning experience for me. One bit of advice that I want to pass on to anyone getting a GOT telescope, have an external power source, do not rely in the internal batteries. They will move the motor and allow the telescope to slep, but for some reason the GOTO function will be like a drunken uni student: all over the place. The telescope hunts and looks, never being able to find the target. This is simply fixed by providing it an external power source. After that it will track perfectly and provide you wonderful imagery. The moon will completely fill the standard 25mm eye piece without even a barlow magnifier. This is a great first telescope.

Great scope - Review by
Overall Score
80
Love this scope. I did a lot of research before buying and read a lot of reviews. I’m a fan of technology but was on a budget. I have this connected to a laptop running some shareware astrology software (Stellarium). I use an old USB GPS plugged into the laptop for GPS interface (just about any PC connectable GPS could be used). You will need some extra leads and/or adapters to do the laptop stuff. I align the scope and then select the object to view from the laptop; the scope slews to the object selected, simple. This scope only comes with one eyepiece; it is worth buying an eyepiece kit with filters (Posted on )
