SkyAlign

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.

NexStar Mount

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.

Of 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.

Advanced Features Let the Celestron NexStar 8SE Telescope Grow with You

The Celestron NexStar 8SE 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 8SE 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 8SE with one of our ZWO planetary imaging cameras.
