Celestron NexStar 8SE Review by AstroBackyard
The Celestron NexStar 8SE Computerized Telescope is one of the best-selling telescopes of all time. This visual telescope is meant for enjoying views of the moon, planets, and maybe even a few bright deep-sky objects - but what about astrophotography? Join AstroBackyard in this video as he finds out what all the fuss is about with the Celestron NexStar 8SE.
My first telescope was the Celestron 8SE. I used it to take 4 minute subs of Whirlpool for 2 hours as my first real try at deep sky.
I was so happy to see whirlpool in my preview. I did not see a guide star in my off axis guider and was scared to move anything so I just took the picture unguided. The photo turned out amazing well as a beginner. Similar to what you see on Astrobin. Too bad I cannot upload it here. I had the telescope mounted on a EQ6R mount.

I think I’ll skip it. Not great for astrophotography
