Often the little things you improve in a telescope can make a big difference in your enjoyment.  The Holder Bracket for NexStar Controllers by JMI Telescopes allows you to see your NexStar SE series telescope's hand controller while using the telescope.

Instead of your NexStar controller facing at a 90° angle from the objective lens, it will be at a 180° from the front of the telescope-in other words, just aside of your view when you're at the eyepiece.  Celestron themselves thought enough of this subtle feature to make it a standard evolution for their premium CPC series telescopes.  It mounts on either the left or right side of the scope (some earlier Celestron models had the fork arm on the right side) and swivels to alter the viewing angle, so that you can comfortably see your NexStar's readout no matter your height.

In addition to the NexStar 4/5/6/8 SE series scopes, this bracket will also work on the discontinued Celestron NexStar 4, 4GT, 5, 5i, 6, 8, 8 GPS, 8i, 8i SE, 9¼ GPS, & NexStar 11 telescopes.

          This is exactly what I was looking for. Now I don't have to have the controller in my hand to see what's on the viewing screen. The bracket fits perfectly and now I have both hands free.

              Comments about JMI Telescopes Holder Bracket for the Celestron NexStar Controller:

              This bracket makes up for a design flaw in many Celestron scopes. Not having to hold the hand controller or fitting it and the cord back and forth really adds to the nights enjoyment.
