Celestron NexStar 5SE TelescopeWith a generous 5 inch aperture the Celestron NexStar 5SE Telescope provides excellent light-gathering ability at an affordable price. You’ll be thrilled with views of the Moon and planets, along with deep sky objects like the Orion Nebula while retaining a compact size. Its fully automated GoTo computerised mount with database of 40,000+ celestial objects automatically locates and tracks objects for you.


SkyAlign Technology

SkyAlign makes aligning a computerized telescope fast, easy, and accurate. Simply point at any three bright objects in the sky and the telescope aligns itself. From there, navigation and tracking is as easy as pushing a button.


Unique Single Fork Mount Design

Celestron NexStar 5SE TelescopeDebate about the “best” telescope is nearly as endless as the Universe itself.  But we know one thing quite well – the best telescope is the one you will use most often! That’s why Celestron’s engineers created NexStar SE’s unique, single fork arm mount. It’s perfectly portable and makes for quick and easy set up. The NexStar SE disassembles 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 at home.

Of course, it’s what’s inside the mount that really counts. Sturdy construction from high-quality components give the Celestron NexStar 5SE Telescope 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.

Advanced Features Let the Celestron NexStar 5SE Telescope Grow with You

The Celestron NexStar 5SE Telescope is compatible with all the high-tech accessories advanced users love. Provide GPS coordinates to your telescope with SkySync. If you want to explore the world of astroimaging, the 5SE is a perfect choice. Its built-in wedge allows you to track long exposures. Or, if you’re interested in imaging the Moon and planets, pair your NexStar 5SE with one of our ZWO planetary imaging cameras.

Celestron NexStar 5SE Telescope

SKU: 11036

Celestron’s popular NexStar 5SE offers a perfect combination of power and portability.

Initially released in 1971 the 5″ f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain configuration offered amateurs a powerful telescope that was highly transportable. The NexStar 5SE features the same high quality Schmidt-Cassegrain optics but benefits from the modern improvements including: a smooth computerized altazimuth mount, StarBright XLT optical coatings, SkyAlign, and even a built-in astroimaging wedge on the tripod. 

The NexStar5 SE is a superb all-around setup that astronomers of all experience levels will take out again and again to experience the delights of the night sky.
