Product description

Celestron NexStar 6SE
The Celestron NexStar 6SE belongs to the Celestron NexStar SE (special edition) series which is known for high-quality finish of the telescopes and the use of very good hand-picked optics. This certainly applies to the Celestron NexStar 6SE; this telescope is a Schmidt-Cassegrain design with a 150mm large primary mirror and clearly the larger brother of the NexStar 5SE. The telescope mirror captures approximately 25% more light than the 125mm mirror of its little brother. As this telescope is powered by batteries, the Celestron NexStar 6SE telescope is ideally suited to take with you on location. The eight AA batteries powering the motor and GoTo of the telescope are not included.

Focal length
Its catadioptric construction gives this Celestron telescope a focal length of 1500mm, which is longer than that of the Nexstar 5SE. The telescope will magnify the picture more. The combination of the telescope focal length and the large mirror ensures that a crystal-clear picture is provided. A StarPointer Red Dot finderscope is mounted on the telescope, which serves to quickly retrieve celestial bodies.

Eyepiece
The telescope comes with a 25mm eyepiece, 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 60 times. An erecting eyepiece (star diagonal) is also included which turns the image upright, so you can even use the Celestron NexStar 6SE 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. In the astronomy world no colour is known so well as the orange 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, Celestron brought 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 pre-programmed 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.

Sturdy steel stand with tracking motors
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 simply 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 150 mm 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.

The Celestron NexStar 6SE telescope in a nutshell
  • Schmidt-Cassegrain design
  • Celestron's famous orange colour
  • Full GoTo functionality with nearly 40.000 pre-programmed objects
  • Alt-azimuth stand with tracking motors
  • Easy operation with LED display
  • Expandable with GPS
  • Includes erecting eyepiece (StarDiagonal)
  • Telescope tube is made of quality aluminium
  • Supplied with NextRemote "The Sky" Level 1 Software
  • Great for astrophotography

Astrophotography
As mentioned above, the telescope is also suitable for astrophotography. You will need to have a camera adapter and the right T2 ring, though. The telescope comes with a camera shutter cable that connects to the camera port. Below you will find some photographs which were taken using the Celestron NexStar 6SE.

Pros and cons

The Celestron NexStar 6SE is easy to use and has many intelligent functions
There is a fully computer-controlled tripod with this telescope, so you have a smoother image and the object does not 'walk out'
The GoTo system helps you find no less than 40,000 pre-programmed objects
This telescope is fairly heavy (9,53 kg), so it is less easy to move than a lighter telescope
