- backyard viewing
- light pollution
I am new to the hobby. This is my first telescope. Mainly wanted it to view the moon with my grandson who is u usually fascinated by it. Learning as fas as I can. The Celestron SE 5” appears to be very well made - much bigger and stronger than I expected. Pleasant surprise!!
The 5SE is a fine telescope. It was easy to set up and use. We used it in two different locations and it was easy to transport and use in both. One little weakness was the finderscope. This is rather fragile and not up to Celestron’s usual quality standards. We intend to replace it with a competing product.
It’s been great, I’ve used it 3 times so far and loved it
I love the telescope! I am still in the process of aligning the telescope for my area which does have a lot of light pollution but am hopeful to get to a good location soon.
the best telescope ever had thank you
Don’t waste your money! Hold out for something better, like maybe an 8se. I had a Meade ETX125 that was Way better than this. I won’t return it because I have to pay shipping and when they refund they will charge me the original free shipping to me plus up to a 15% re stocking fee.
