About the Celestron NexStar 6SE Computerized Telescope

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.

A Vision by the Founder of Celestron, Reimagined for the 21st Century

The Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes from Celestron brought the hobby of astronomy to the masses and established Celestron as the world’s premier telescope maker in the 1970's. Celestron’s proprietary method of producing Schmidt corrector plates was invented by Celestron founder Tom Johnson to create superb observations in an unparalleled portable design. By making quality optics at prices many could afford, Johnson ushered in a new generation of amateur astronomers.

Four decades later, Celestron has improved upon this design by adding cutting-edge features, while staying true to their founder’s intent. 

View the Universe’s Most Impressive Celestial Objects

The Celestron 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 backyard.

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 NexStar 6SE computerized telescope is simple and painless, too, thanks to SkyAlign. This process makes alignment as easy as 1-2-3: just center 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 telescope included in this Celestron NexStar 6SE bundle is compatible with all the high-tech accessories advanced users love.

For planetary imaging, pair your NexStar 6SE with a Celestron 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.

About the Celestron StarSense AutoAlign Telescope Accessory

The Celestron StarSense allows even the most beginner astronomer to quickly and accurately locate celestrial objects, putting planets, galaxies, nebulae, and more right at your fingertips. Set up is easy - push the Align button on the hand control, and StarSense will begin capturing and comparing images of the night sky against its internal database. All it takes is three minutes for the StarSense to find its position and align the telescope. Then, press the Sky Tour button: StarSense will automatically slew to all the best stars, planets, galaxies, and more currently visible in the night sky.

Celestron StarSense AutoAlign Telescope Accessory Features:

  • Celestron StarSense automatically aligns your telescope in minutes

     

  • Sit back and let StarSense do all the work for you

     

  • Minimal user input is required

     

  • The Celestron StarSense AutoAlign automatically determines the identity of some celestial objects on the Celestial Sphere by using a built-in camera and sophisticated software

     

  • StarSense AutoAlign determines where your telescope is pointed on the Celestial Sphere

     

  • Offers amazing guided tours of the night sky

 

From beginning observers, to seasoned astrophotographers, everyone loves the Celestron StarSense! This affordable accessory replaces the expensive software usually used for advanced mount modeling. With built-in mount modeling, you'll get superior pointing accuracy from horizon to horizon.

How it Works: A small digital camera takes the place of your finderscope and attaches using one of two provided mounting brackets. The included StarSense hand control, with a database of over 40,000 celestial objects, takes the place of your NexStar hand control. The camera automatically captures a series of images of the sky. StarSense identifies the stars in the images, matching them to its database. Once a positive match is confirmed, StarSense calculates the coordinates of the center of the captured image, thereby determining exactly where the telescope is pointed. Before StarSense, using a computerized telescope required a lengthy alignment process of finding and centering at least two bright stars in the telescope’s eyepiece. But StarSense automatically aligns itself with minimal user input. Just enter your time, date, and location, and let StarSense do the rest!
