Celestron Nexstar 6SE Advanced Bundle

Our most popular package, the NexStar 6SE Advanced bundle includes almost everything you would ever need to enjoy visual astronomy. The bundle includes the Celestron NexStar 6SE telescope, three X-Cel LX eyepieces, two filters, 7 Ah Power Tank and a red LED night vision flashlight. The included X-Cel LX eyepieces offer a wider 60 degree apparent field vs. 50 degrees in standard Plossl eyepieces, and they also feature a more comfortable 16mm of eye relief. We've explained the application of each included eyepiece below for those of you not familiar with what magnifications are appropriate for different celestial objects. This bundle also includes an Ultra High Contrast (UHC) nebular filter, which will dramatically improve the views of emission nebulae.

The Celestron NexStar 6SE telescope bundle includes everything you need to get the most out of your Celestron NexStar 6SE. The package starts off with the versatile Celestron NexStar 6SE, which is the most popular computerized go-to telescope we sell and adds to it several of our top recommended accessories to help you get the most out of the telescope.

The bundle also includes three Celestron X-Cel LX eyepieces, which are a significant step up from the basic eyepieces sold in accessory kits. Each Celestron X-Cel LX eyepiece offers a wider 60-degree apparent field of view, a large eye lens with twist up eye cupand a comfortable 16mm of eye relief. These eyepieces will yield 125X, 167Xand 214X magnification, representing medium, highand very high power when combined with this telescope. The telescope itself comes with a 25 mm Plossl eyepiece that yields 60X magnification, rounding out your eyepiece set with a low power option.

These eyepieces may be used as follows:

  • Low Power (25mm / 60X) - observing the moon, large nebulae such as the Orion Nebula, or open star clusters
  • Medium Power (12mm / 125X) - observing smaller nebulae and galaxies, as well as close up lunar observing
  • High Power (9mm /167X) - observing the planets, planetary nebulae such as the Ring Nebula, and globular clusters
  • Very High Power (7mm / 214X) - same as the above, but with emphasis on planetary observing when atmospheric conditions permit

Also included with this package are a moon filter and a UHC Nebular filter. You may not have thought of this, but taking the moonlight gathered by a six inch / 150mm telescope and compressing it down to a 2.5mm or smaller image is a lot like shining a bright flashlight in your eye — in other words, it’s not very comfortable and can be damaging to your eyes. A moon filter makes lunar observing much more enjoyable by reducing the image brightness.

Additionally, while viewing nebulae, you may notice they look relatively dim — this is because most nebulae that we observe visually are actually emission nebulae that are sending very specific wavelengths of light. With a nebular filter, you can allow those specific wavelengths to pass through while blocking other wavelengths, effectively diminishing surrounding starlight and making the nebulae appear brighter. This can help highlight fainter details along the outer regions of the nebulae and make emission nebulae appear larger since these fainter details are are no longer lost to the sky glow.

Additionally, this bundle offer features a Celestron 7 Amp-Hour power tank. The power tank is a portable rechargeable battery capable of supplying power to the telescope for one to two nights of observing. While the telescope can be operated using AA batteries in a pinch, they won't last very long and you will need to re-align the telescope's go to function each time you change them. The Power tank allows you to align once and then enjoy an entire night of uninterrupted observing if you so choose.

Last but not least, the Celestron NexStar 6SE telescope bundle includes a red LED flashlight that allows you to read star charts or other guidebooks without ruining the dark adaptation of your eyes. It can take twenty minutes or more for your eyes to fully adapt to the darkness, so why spoil that by using a white flashlight?
