Celestron NexStar 6SE Computerized Telescope
|The NexStar 6SE is one of Celestron's most popular telescopes, and it is easy to see why. This is much more than a basic beginner's telescope, yet is easy to use for those with minimal experience. The capabilities of the NexStar computer object location system make it a joy to use. The total weight of 30 lbs makes the NexStar 6SE highly portable for its size. What's more, Celestron's revolutionary SkyAlign alignment software incorporated into the Celestron 6SE is arguably one of the fastest, easiest and most accurate go-to alignment procedures available today. With six inches of aperture, you are equipped to observe well beyond the moon and planets of our own solar system. The full moon nearly fills the supplied 25mm eyepiece. Add a 9mm eyepiece (not included) and you easily see not only the rings of Saturn, but the Cassini division separating the two major rings. All of this is priced well below $1000, making this telescope a phenomenal value! |

Celestron's Revolutionary SkyAlign
The NexStar 6SE features Celestron's SkyAlign method of go to alignment. Using Celestron's patented SkyAlign, simply input the date, time and location into the keypad then point the telescope at any three widely separated bright celestial objects. The NexStar computer does the rest, identifying those objects using a simple triangulation technique. You do not need to know the names of the stars, you can even pick the moon or bright planets. All you need to do is follow the directions on the NexStar computer keypad, and you will be ready to start observing in just a few minutes. SkyAlign is fast, easy and accurate.
