Featuring Schmidt-Cassegrain optics, the Celestron NexStar 8 SE is an ideal telescope for observing and photographing celestial subjects. With a weight of just 33 lb (15 kg) including the tripod, the portable 8 SE features a precision optical system with 2032mm focal length at ƒ10, and provides 78% more light gathering than a 6" model.

StarBright XLT high transmission coatings
SkyAlign allows alignment on any three bright celestial objects, making for a rapid, efficient alignment process. It then functions as a 'go-to' system accepting commands through the handset and pointing the optical assembly toward any one of nearly 40,000 objects stored in its database. Using the (optional) CN-16 GPS accessory connection and an external GPS (not included), alignment is entirely automatic.
NexRemote telescope control software and RS-232 cable included for advanced control of the telescope with a PC
StarPointer finderscope helps with alignment and locating objects
Flash-upgradeable hand control software and motor control units by way of downloadable updates
Robust, computerized altazimuth mount
Star Diagonal internal flip mirror for straight or 90-degree viewing angle. May also be used to rapidly switch from the eyepiece to a camera without disturbing telescope alignment
Exceptionally sturdy steel tripod for long service and rapier-sharp astrophotography
