Celestron NexStar 6SE Schmidt-Cassegrain Computerized Telescope With an aperture of 150mm (6"), 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 bands 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 of hassle-free 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 Flash Upgradeable Technology. You can also take a look at the Celestron NexStar 8SE.  Celestron NexStar 6SE Computerized Telescope Features:  Computerized hand control with nearly 40,000 object database & motorized altazimuth mount. Quick release optical tube offers easy, no-tool setup. StarBright XLT enhances coatings for maximum light transmission and clarity. Flash upgradeable hand control lets you update your telescope's software via the internet. Internal battery compartment prevents cord wrap during use. Includes NexRemote telescope control software for advanced control of your telescope via computer. "THE SKY" Planetarium software features a 10,000 object database, printable sky maps, and enhanced images.
