      Comments about Celestron NexStar 6 SE and 8 SE Computerized Mount:

      If you're looking to observe or photograph objects within our solar system, this mount is perfect. Anything beyond that and you really need to get into a German Equatorial setup, but if you're looking to stay "local" this is perfect. Quick and easy alignment with 3 stars and you're ready to go.
