Product Details

  • Nexstar 6SE on Nexstar SE Rear

    The Celestron NexStar 6SE Computerized Telescope is equipped with SkyAlign technology, giving you an easy-to-use and ready-to-go telescope. Your telescope can automatically locate, point to and track over 40,000 objects in its database. Align it to any three bright objects and let it do the rest! 

    With a super user-friendly design, this is an ideal telescope for beginners in astronomy. Its large 6-inch aperture is powerful enough to capture Cassini’s Division in Saturn’s rings, the cloud bands on Jupiter and geographic features on the surface of the Moon. Lightweight and run on batteries make it easy to take on trips! It is also versatile enough to be used for both deep space and planetary astrophotography.

    Star finder swallowed by black hole

    The star pointer was defective; consequently I was unable to align the telescope. I notified OPT and was informed that Celestron was contacted. After two weeks without getting a replacement from either OPT or Celestron I purchased a star finder myself. It is almost one month later, and Celestron has not contacted me or sent a replacement. If I did not purchase the star pointer (finder) myself, I would still be without one. After paying $1078 for the SE6, is it too much to ask that the $20 star finder be in working order, and if defective, be replaced? I was finally given a $30 gift card from OPT. Nice gesture, but all I wanted was a working telescope.
