Just Received my First Telescope ! Nexstar 6SE from Optics Planet

by Legacy Reviewer, Written on December 10, 2013
Optics Planet is the best place to shop for telescope. Everything arrived well packed and no signs of damage etc. They also provide you with promo code cards for your purchase which is great for you to use to purchase additional accessories ! Well done Optics Planet
Pros: Easy to set up, full of possibilities with this scope, (Research Raspberry Pi With Nexstar) you will get what i mean
Cons: more eye pieces required for greater views. but the started eyepiece that comes with it is adequate enough...
Would recommend: Yes

NexStar 6SE Review

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on May 11, 2013
Great telescope, good optics. The instructions for setup and use are sorely lacking. I had to "intuitively" figure out the "home/starting" position for the unit before the SkyAlign feature would work correctly, otherwise it fails miserably. Alternatively, the two-star align procedure does work well in lieu of SkyAlign.
Pros: Optics, goto accuracy
Cons: instructions/setup...
Would recommend: Yes

GREAT SCOPE FOR PRICE

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MT Written on February 5, 2012
First light - WOW! Great scope, great optics. StarAlign system works as advertised. On clear, calm night, the scope will split Capella A and B with the 25mm eyepiece that comes with the scope. Did a lot of research for a new scope and this one is a no-brainer. Only issue - an AC adapter is a MUST. Batteries wont last long.
Pros: GREAT OPTICS, STURDY TRIPOD
Cons: BATTERY POWER ALMOST USELESS...
Would recommend: Yes

Nexstar 6

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WA Written on June 26, 2011
To align the telescope you need to hit align then enter. After your city location ID is displayed hit undo then move to a different city then to your city /location again. This is different then what it reads in the manual. Other than this the telescope has decent optics. I would like a better quality gear system to drive the auto find..
Pros: portable, easy to use, good optics
Cons: user manual could be better, quality of the gear system ...

Celestron NexStar 6SE

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, MD Written on August 22, 2010
After being a star-hopping amateur for the past 20 years, I reluctantly gave in and purchased a GOTO scope, the Celestron 6SE. I mainly use the two-star alignment method and have experienced 100 accuracy with finding objects nearly, by not quite, centered in an 18mm eyepiece. I spent great care in collimating over two nights, ending with a high power view using Vega near zenith. Got it perfect. Next morning I'm up at 4AM for a look at Jupiter. It was the best view of Jupiter, or any planet, I have even seen! Razor sharp (130x), excellent contrast, it really surprised me. Now granted the seeing was superb that night, but still, I just could not believe the detail in the bands and lack of chromatic aberration. I was buzzing for days after that view!
Pros: Fantastic optics; accurate GOTO and tracking
Cons: None--No kidding!...
Would recommend: Yes

Finds stuff easily!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, VT Written on July 29, 2010
Works very well with two star align. Objects are within the view of a 25mm eye piece every time. Easy to set up.
Pros: Work as it should. Pretty quiet too.
Cons: Needs a power tank or AC power supply....
Would recommend: Yes

Excellent Telescope

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, GA Written on December 19, 2008
I have a large 10" reflecting telescope but I wanted a smaller scope to take with me to various observing sites. So after lots of research I settled on this NexStar 6SE, and I have not been disappointed. It is built very well and is exceptionally stable, Vibrations are dampened quickly. Don't let the appearance fool you, even though it has only one arm instead of the dual arm fork style mount found on some telescopes, it is a very solid build and the sturdiest scope I have looked through. The quality of the optics are exceptional as well. Overall this is a very good product, highly recommended.
Pros: Very portable, High quality/good build
Cons: None yet...
Would recommend: Yes
