    Celestron NexStar 6SE Computerized Telescope

    The days of complicated telescope assembly and setup are over. NexStar SE telescopes can be set up in a matter of minutes with no tools required. Using Celestron's patented SkyAlign, simply input the date, time, and location into the flash upgradeable hand control, then point the telescope at any three bright celestial objects and the telescope does the rest. You do not need to know the names of the stars...you can even pick the Moon or a bright planet!

    In the tradition of Celestron's famous orange optical tubes, the 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, superior coatings, Celestron's revolutionary SkyAlign telescope alignment software, and much more. With the NexStar SE, you are in the driver's seat. Simply choose an object from the menu and the telescope will find it for you. Using Celestron's patented NexStar technology, the SE scopes have the ability to locate nearly 40,000 objects. All you have to do is look through the eyepiece and enjoy the view!

    Don't know what object to choose? Let the intelligent NexStar SE give you a guided tour of the night sky! The "Tour" feature offers a customized list of the best objects in the sky to view for your exact time and location anywhere in the world. Not only can your NexStar SE find objects, it can teach you about them as well. Information on the most popular objects can be viewed on the LCD screen of your hand control. 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.
