Celestron NexStar 6SE Computerised Telescope

The sophisticated technology of the Celestron NexStar 6SE Computerised Telescope enables newcomers as well as seasoned observers to view superb images of the solar system and the wonders of the deep sky.

This highly advanced but simple-to-use telescope can reveal more than 38,000 planets, stars and galaxies.

You do not even have to know where to look for the planet or galaxy you want to view as the 6SE’s fully automatic GoTo technology will locate and track your chosen object for you.

The Celestron NexStar 6SE Computerised Telescope will not only enable you to see Moon and the planets in our solar system but it will take you out into deep space to see features that will open your mind to the wonders of the universe.

Integrated SkyAlign technology makes it easy to align the telescope in just a few minutes so you can start your observations in quick time.

And whether you are setting it up in your garden or taking it out to an isolated hill away from urban light interference, the telescope and its tripod can be quickly dismantled into manageable components for easy transportation and then it is easily put back together onsite.

View the Most Impressive Celestial Objects in the Universe

The 6-inch primary mirror has enough light-gathering ability to observe the best features of the solar system such as Saturn's rings, the cloud bands on Jupiter and specific geographical details on the surface of the Moon. When you want to view deep sky objects, take your 6SE to a dark-sky site to see such sights as the hundreds of pinpoint stars in the Hercules Globular Cluster, the spiral arms of the Whirlpool Galaxy and so much more.

Revolutionary Single Fork Arm Mount

Sturdy construction from high-quality components give NexStar 6SE the pointing and tracking accuracy needed to observe and follow your favourite targets with push-button ease. You can use the included NexStar+ hand control to locate over 38,000 celestial objects.

Alternatively, take a Sky Tour and this telescope will automatically show you the best objects currently visible in the night sky.

SkyAlign makes aligning your telescope as easy as 1-2-3. Just centre three bright objects in your eyepiece and press ALIGN.

Advanced Features Let the NexStar SE Grow with You

The NexStar 6SE is compatible with many high-tech accessories that are not included with this telescope but which you can buy separately if and when you decide you want their functions. For example, you could provide GPS coordinates to your telescope by adding SkySync or you could add automatic alignment functionality by adding StarSense AutoAlign.

If you want to explore the world of astro-photography, the 6SE is a perfect choice. Its built-in wedge allows you to track long exposures. You can even remove the telescope's secondary mirror and replace it with a DSLR or astronomical CCD camera for wide field images captured at f/2 using a Fastar/HyperStar lens assembly. Alternatively, if you are interested in imaging the Moon and planets, you could pair your NexStar 6SE with one of the Celestron Skyris cameras.
