This Schmidt-Cassegrain with StarBright® XLT coatings is our favourite from the SE family. Its 6" aperture (offering 40% more light gathering than a 5” telescope) f10 ratio and sturdy GOTO mount makes this one of the best general-purpose back-yard telescopes available.
Portability and serious performance come together in the NexStar 6 SE. Celestron's first new Schmidt-Cassegrain optical system in over a decade is now available in a high performance altazimuth computerized telescope.
