Great Product

  • Excerpt: This was my first telescope, and it's been really fun to take out and use. I've learned that using a telescope takes practice, and I haven't gotten to the point of seeing planets or deep sky objects as of yet. However, you can see the constellations much more clearly. I look forward to learning more about the scope, and getting better at understanding/using it. I would certainly recommend this to any others who have a thing for amateur astronomy.

Great Telescope!

  • Excerpt: Having a 40 year old Celestron telescope C8, I appreciated my new Celestron NexStar 8 SE telescope with it's computerized drive to easily locate the planets and stars. The new telescope has gotten better over the course of time and it's a great bargain for what you get. The optics are very sharp and the whole telescope is well built. I plan to do some astronomical as well terrestrial photography with it.

  • Excerpt: This telescope is amazing very well built if you thinking of buying it I really don't think you will regret it.<br />My dauhter and myself spent 4 hours the other night under the sky with this scope and seeing Jupiter and Orion's nebula with her was worth the money I paid for this scope alone . You can't put a price on memory's . We were both in amazed and had a great time . <br />Things you must have and know.<br />Dew shield a must.<br />Battery pack a must.

Great Scope for &quot;Grab &amp; Go&quot;

Larry, Orion Telescopes & Binoculars
9 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I wanted a lite scope to carry outside quickly,view is good without waiting for complete thermal cooldown. My other scopes weigh several times what the SE8 does and can take up to an hour for cooldown. This scope is great for quick setup and storage. After cooldown, the optical images are almost as good as a 8&quot;f10 planetary scope I use. The size and setup time make the SE8 my 1st scope to grab now.

No hesitation required!

  • Excerpt: Easy setup, clear directions, crystal optics and precision computer operation make this scope a no-brainer for both newcomers and seasoned amature astronomers. It is relatively easy to align if you're careful to level your tripod and you choose alignment objects according to the directions. This system is great for entertaining/educating your family and the entire neighborhood!
