Featuring Schmidt-Cassegrain optics, the Celestron NexStar 6 SE is an ideal telescope for observing and photographing celestial subjects. With a weight of just 30 lb (13.6 kg) including the tripod, the portable 6 SE features a precision optical system with 1500 mm focal length at ƒ10.0, and provides 44% more light gathering than a 5" telescope.

Using the (optional) CN-16 (93963) GPS accessory connection and an external GPS (not included), alignment is entirely automatic.
