The largest of the NexStar SE family with 78% more light gathering than the 6 Inch model, the NexStar 8SE will enable you to see deep into the Universe. The distinctive patented fork arm with ergonomically designed integrated hand control cradle gives solid support to Celestron's classic 8" optics. The NexStar 8 SE features Schmidt-Cassegrain 8 Inch aperture optics with our premium StarBright XLT coatings, powerful 2032mm focal length and an f/10 focal ratio. The NexStar 8SE has all the same features as Celestron's most advanced computerized GoTo telescopes, including the revolutionary SkyAlign alignment technology, a sky tour feature, a database of over 40,000 celestial objects and easy to use hand control. Plug the optional SkySync GPS Accessory into NexStar's Auxiliary port and download data from orbiting GPS satellites for truly quick and easy alignments. The universe may be full of mysteries, but using the NexStar 8SE isn't one of them.

PLEASE NOTE:

NexStar Handsets can be prone to error messages due to voltage fluctuations from the use of rechargeable or low powered batteries. This can be rectified by "flashing" the handset (full details are given on Celestron’s website) and can be mitigated by using new lithium batteries or the use of Power tanks, such as the Sky-Watcher 7 or 17Ah Power tank.
