Celestron NexStar 5SE f/10 GoTo Telescope


    The portable NexStar 5SE Telescope is easy to set-up and includes alignment and tracking technologies which allow you to locate celestial objects and navigate the night sky with ease.

    Included Technology

    All-Star Polar Alignment

    Get ready for a night of astroimaging with your mount faster than previously thought possible with All-Star Polar Alignment. This innovative software solves the time-consuming problem of trying to pinpoint the North Celestial Pole.


    This telescope control software replaces the hand control and allows the user to remotely control their Celestron computerized telescope from their personal PC or laptop.


    SkyAlign alignment technology makes setting up a computerized telescope simple, fast, and accurate. Just point the telescope at any three bright objects — stars, bright planets, or even the Moon — and your telescope can orient itself with the night sky.

    Compatible Technology


    The new Lithium Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery chemistry has significant advantages over other battery chemistries, great for those Astronomers on the go.

    Starsense Technology

    Celestron’s patented StarSense Technology makes it easier than ever to locate objects in the night sky, even if you’ve never used a telescope before. Turn it on and push ‘Align.’ In about three minutes, you’re ready to observe!


    WiFi technology encircles the globe in a web of connectivity, knowledge, and information. Now, Celestron is using that same technology to allow stargazers to connect to the night sky and enhance their experience of the cosmos in fun and unique ways.

    Ask a Question
    • Does the RS-232 includes also have the USB adapter? Neither laptop I have has one of those COM ports. Thanks.

      Celstron does not include a USB to RS-232 adapter with the telescope, but they do distribute a compatible adapter for that purpose. You can read more about it here: https://www.optcorp.com/celestron-usb-to-rs232-converter.html
