The Celestron Nexstar 6SE Telescope is a powerful, portable, and user-friendly Schmidt-Cassegrain-style scope that can be used for observing everything from the Moon and planets to deep-sky objects like stars, galaxies, and nebulae. 

Representing the largest aperture in the series and drawing in more light to see deeper into space than smaller versions. Using Celestron's proprietary StarBright XLT multi-coating system, light transmission is increased throughout the entire optical path with anti-reflection multi-coated lenses, highly reflective multi-coated mirrors, and crown optical glass elements. While the focal ratio is a relatively slow f/10, the mount's precision tracking system allows it to be a competent shorter-exposure astrophotography imaging platform for the Moon and planets.

  • 203mm Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope
  • 2032mm Focal Length, f/10 Focal Ratio
  • StarBright XLT Optical Coating System
  • Single-Fork Motorised GoTo Alt-Az Mount
  • 25mm Eyepiece and StarPointer Finder
  • SkyAlign Alignment Technology
  • NexStar+ Computer Hand Controller
