Celestron’s signature orange-tube telescope combines advanced features and excellent optics in one easy-to-use system, the NexStar 6SE. It’s the perfect choice for your first serious telescope, offering striking views at an economical price. Our Founder’s Vision, Reimagined for the 21st Century In the 1970s, Celestron’s Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes brought the hobby of astronomy to the masses and established Celestron as the world’s premier telescope maker. Our founder, Tom Johnson, invented Celestron’s proprietary method of producing Schmidt corrector plates for superior views and maximum portability. Johnson believed in creating high-quality optical instruments at an affordable price, and inspired a generation of amateur astronomers. Four decades later, we’ve improved upon this design by adding cutting-edge features, while staying true to our founder’s intent. View the Universe’s Most Impressive Celestial Objects The 6SE’s six-inch primary mirror packs enough light-gathering ability to observe the best that the solar system has to offer: Cassini’s Division in Saturn’s rings, the cloud bands on Jupiter, and geographic features on the surface of the Moon. When it comes to deep sky objects, take your 6SE to a dark-sky site and you’ll see hundreds of pinpoint stars in the Hercules Globular Cluster, the spiral arms of the Whirlpool Galaxy, and more. Revolutionary Single Fork Arm Mount We know the best telescope is the one you will use most often. That’s why Celestron’s engineers created NexStar SE’s unique, patented single fork arm mount. It’s perfectly portable and makes setup quick and easy. What’s more, the NexStar SE breaks down into several lightweight and compact pieces, making it easy to transport, even in small vehicles. You’ll have no problem getting the NexStar SE to your favorite observing site, or setting it up quickly in your garden. Of course, it’s what’s inside the mount that really counts. Sturdy construction from high-quality components give NexStar SE the pointing and tracking accuracy needed to observe and follow your favorite targets with push-button ease. Use the included NexStar+ hand control to locate over 40,000 celestial objects, or take a Sky Tour and let your telescope show you the best objects currently visible. Aligning your telescope is simple and painless, too, thanks to SkyAlign. This process makes alignment as easy as 1-2-3: just centre three bright objects in your eyepiece and press ALIGN. For even easier alignment, attach our StarSense AutoAlign and your NexStar SE aligns itself! Advanced Features Let the NexStar SE Grow with You The NexStar SE is compatible with all the high-tech accessories advanced users love. Provide GPS coordinates to your telescope with SkySync, or add automatic alignment functionality with StarSense AutoAlign. For planetary imaging, pair your NexStar 6SE with one of our Skyris cameras. Or, experiment with wide-field deep sky astroimaging by replacing the telescope’s secondary mirror with a DSLR or astronomical CCD camera with a Fastar/HyperStar lens assembly. From your first observing session and for years to come, the NexStar SE is your trusted companion.

This will go really well with the new Warehouse they built right next door that never turns off their 2000 flood lights :/
I like the idea of having a remote telescope outside that I can control and view it's output on my TV in the warmth of the house. I imagine that such a device exists.

These scopes have good reviews for the most part. Apparently there have been QC issues with the mount in the past, however.

I think the 6inch version hits the sweet spot in terms of power, portability and price for beginners who want to try both visual observation and basic astrophotography.

Not surprised it's going cheap, the only thing you can look at from Britain is clouds !
The primary lens of this telescope is 6". A 6" traditional reflector with motorised star alignment and an equitorial mount and a tripod can be had for about £150. Probably the focusing lenses here will be better but the brightness will be about the same so if you want a better telecope you just need to get one with a much bigger primary lens
This is a schmidt-cassegrain and has no primary lens like a refractor . The correction plate in the front house's the secondary mirror while the primary mirror is at the end with a whole in it for the eyepiece. This gives a longer focal length in a short tube.

I'll need a Glock with the way my area is going.
Even with over proced technology, you still cant map the stars like the Ancient Egyptions did.
I can see Uranus from here
Would you be able to see the moons of Saturn with this?

Easily yes. You can see them with a lot cheaper scope as well. I have had a few scopes over the years.
The 8 went down to £999 briefly on Friday.
Just buy porn, it’s cheaper and won’t get you arrested, or a restraining order

Or spell like them either...
These are superb scopes for viewing objects in our solar system and much less faff than an eq mount. I went for a much cheaper 127slt which uses similar technology. Attach a webcam to this and you'll get superb footage to stack.

Other good thing about planetary scopes is that you dont need a dark sky to get the best of Jupiter or Saturn, and because it's a slow scope you don't need £300 eye pieces, £40 plossls will do nearly as good a job.

Ps, like me you'll be wanting to add upgrades to it. I love my starsense. Plonk scope down, let it autoalign for a few.minutes while you set the laptop up. Can control the mount from your PC too with a £20 cable and adapter. I have mine stored in a keter ultra ready to go so no cool down needed, and then set scope up and feed cable in to my pc and use stellarium to control from the conservatory.

If you fancy dabbling in astrophotography you can get some impressive results piggybacking a DSLR and lens on top of the mount, I've seen images on stargazers lounge that would put those with £1000 EQ mounts to shame.

I’ve had one of these for 10 years. Great little scope, my kids now enjoy looking through it. Yes you can spend more, but as somebody else said the 6 is the price/performance sweet spot.
Also available on 5 interest free monthly payments of £123 for prime members with the pay monthly option available/activated
Too cheap for my liking..

This is at the cheap end of auto tracking Goto scopes. Most of the cost goes in to the mount, some can cost several thousand, and then several more thousand for the scope, and then several more thousand on lenses, then thousands more on cameras, plus adapters, reducers, field flatteners.

And then you realise we get about 50 nights of crystal clear weather in the UK. And of those 50 nights only 10 happen to fall on a Friday or Saturday night so you're not knackered at work next day. Of those 10 nights, 3 of them your kids won't go to sleep or wife will nag you to come to bed, 3 of the nights you'll have issues getting everything to connect, powerbank flat, laptop needs several hours of updates, can't focus cameras, mount won't align. 3 nights will fall on days you're on holiday or down the pub, so you'll actually only get one proper nights use a year.


Cheaper to hire a remote telescope based in Chile or Hawaii for a few nights a year!

Or just do a Google search for pictures of planets and galaxies online and you won't even have to spend the time or cost to book a remote telescope.
Kind of think you're missing the point of looking through a telescope with your own eye.
