Details

With an aperture of 150mm, focal length of 1500mm and focal ratio of f/10, the Celestron NexStar 6SE Schmidt-Cassegrain Computerized Telescope is perfect for planetary observing. Since slower focal ratios render smaller field of views and high magnification, great detail can be resolved on objects with high surface brightness. The rings of Saturn and cloud bans of Jupiter should be easily apparent with this telescope. Even some deep sky objects might be within reach of this scope such as the Orion Nebula or bright globular clusters. Light reflectivity is also improved tremendously with Celestron's StarBright XLT coatings with mirrors reaching a reflectivity rate of 95%, almost a 10% improvement over standard aluminum based coatings.

The single arm fork mount keeps this telescope extremely portable, so it is perfect to take out for a night or two for basic visual observing. Celestron has implemented a very simple alignment procedure so the observer can start viewing almost immediately. The SkyAlign method simply required the user to point and center three bright stars (or planets) after entering the date, time and location and the computer controller can calculate what stars were selected without the user even having to know the names. With the optional GPS SkySync Accessory (not included), the location and time entry is not necessary and the GPS will automatically gather that information from the first satellite available. To update the telescope's operating system, the user can update via the internet through the Flash Upgradeable Technology.
