Product description

Celestron Nexstar 5SE
The Celestron Nexstar 5SE telescope belongs to the Celestron NexStar SE (special edition) series which is known for the high-quality finish of the telescopes and the use of very good hand-picked optics. This certainly applies to the Celestron NexStar 5SE; this telescope is a Schmidt-Cassegrain design with a 125mm primary mirror. This mirror captures approximately 40% more light than a similar mirror with a 102mm diameter. Its catadioptric construction gives the Celestron Nexstar 5SE a focal length of 1250mm, which is a bit shorter than the focal length of the Nexstar 4SE. Compared to the 4SE, magnification with this telescope is less high. However, the shorter focal length does result in less light being lost. A StarPointer Red Dot finderscope is mounted on the Celestron Nexstar 5SE  telescope which serves to quickly retrieve celestial bodies.

Eyepiece
The telescope comes with a 25mm eyepiece which is suitable for any eyepiece fitting with a 1.25 inch diameter. In combination with the focal length of this telescope it is possible to get a magnification of 50 times. Also included is a StarDiagonal (erecting eyepiece) to turn the image upright. So, you can even use the telescope as a spotting scope for terrestrial observations!

Legendary Orange
The striking orange NexStar SE telescopes are inspired by the legendary ''Orange'' telescopes of Celestron as experts will undoubtedly know. In the world of astronomy no other colour is as 'famous' as the orange colour of Celestron. The new orange NexStar telescopes are a tribute to the orange Celestron C8 telescopes which were produced from the 1960s up to the 1980s. During the 1980s Celestron switched to a "cool" glossy black colour leading to the disappearance of the famous orange telescopes. 25 years later 0Celestron brings the new orange NexStar telescopes on the market to revive the good old days and continue the Celestron tradition. Hail to the colour orange!

GoTo functionality
The telescope and mount have a full GoTo system. With this very useful system, the telescope will automatically find celestial objects for you. In the system 40,000 celestial objects are preprogrammed which makes watching with this telescope easier and a lot of fun. The GoTo features Celestron SkyAlign alignment technology which will align the telescope in seconds. It is also possible to find celestial bodies yourself and save them for next time so you can focus on these objects. The GoTo system provides detailed information on the 200 most-viewed celestial bodies. The GoTo is easy to operate by a remote control with LED display.

About the tripod
The tripod that comes with the NexStar SE has an altazimuth mount on very strong stainless steel legs. This tripod is very easy to collapse or to set up. The stand has a motor that is fully computer-controlled. With this convenient tracking motor you can easily continue to follow objects in the universe. For astrophotographers such a tripod is highly recommended. The tracking motor of the tripod is powered by AA batteries (not included).

Mirror and coating
The 125mm mirror is equipped with Celestron's Starbright XLT coatings. Due to the coating used, the absorbed light is more evenly distributed, making the light output higher and the image sharper. The coating consists of several layers; Celestron have used aluminium, titanium and magnesium to make a coating as strong and effective as possible.

Celestron Nexstar 5SE: an overview
