Celestron NexStar 6SE f/10 GoTo Telescope

Nexstar 6SE on Nexstar SE RearThe Nexstar 6SE is a very user-friendly telescope. The SkyAlign function will get the NexStar 6se aligned and ready to observe in minutes. Even if you’re unfamiliar with the night sky, you can easily align your telescope on any three bright objects. You can align on the moon, planets, or stars; it doesn’t matter what they are, just that you center them in your eyepiece when aligning. Once Aligned, the telescope can automatically locate, point to, and track any of the 40,000 celestial objects in its database that is up in the night sky.

This telescope is an excellent choice for a beginner getting into astronomy, It’s has a large 6” aperture that is powerful enough to resolve Cassini’s Division in Saturn’s rings, the cloud bands on Jupiter, and geographic features on the surface of the Moon. It is lightweight and can be run on batteries which will make it easy to take on trips. It is also versatile enough to be used for both Deep Space and Planetary astrophotography.
 

Key Features:

  • 6-inch aperture with excellent light-gathering ability provides impressive views of the Moon and planets, along with deep sky objects like the Orion Nebula.
  • Fully automated, GoTo mount with database of 40,000+ celestial objects will automatically locate and track objects for you.
  • SkyAlign technology gets your telescope aligned and ready to observe in minutes. Even if you’re unfamiliar with the night sky, you can easily set up your telescope on any three bright objects in the sky.
  • Unique single fork arm design and sturdy steel tripod all break down into separate components for easy transport and quick assembly. 
 
Using the telescope visually is easy. Since it comes will all the eyepieces that you need, you’ll be able to see almost every type of object there is to see in space. Here is what OPT now includes with every Nexstar SE

TPO ND96 Moon Filter


The TPO ND filter is a must-have accessory when viewing the moon. The moon is the brightest object in the night sky. It can get so bright that it can feel like you are shining a flashlight into one of your eyes. The TPO ND filter will darken the image of the moon so that it will be comfortable to view all night long. This filter will fit any 1.25-inch barrel, so it can fit onto any

TPO 15mm Plossl Eyepiece


The TPO 15 mm eyepiece is a medium-high magnification eyepiece. This eyepiece is ideal for looking at fine details of nebulae or galaxies. When paired with a 2x Barlow it will give some of the best views of the large planets.
TPO 40mm Plossl Eyepiece


The TPO 40 mm Plossl eyepiece is a great eyepiece for a bright and wide field of view. We recommend that this is the first eyepiece that you use when observing since it makes very easy to find the object that you are looking for. It is also the best choice when looking at large and faint objects. When paired with a 2X Barlow It works like mid-range magnification eyepiece.
TPO 2x Barlow Lens


The TPO 2X Barlow is in an extremely useful tool. When used, it will double the magnification of any eyepiece that you put inside of it. This vastly extends the versatility of your 3 eyepieces to give you the versatility of 6 eyepieces.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Does the Celestron Nexstar 4, 5, 6SE telescopes support photography ???

    Hi Edward, They do support photography, but in a limited fashion. You can attach a DSLR to the scope and get some decent images of the entire moon. You can attach a astronomy webcam to get some closeups. Using a webcam you could probably get some dec

  • Does they six inch have a built in altitude adjuster to tilt it like they 5 inch
