    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

    Debate 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.

    Celestron NexStar 8SE TelescopeOf course, it’s what’s inside the mount that really counts. Sturdy construction from high-quality components give the Celestron NexStar 8SE 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.
