The Celestron NexStar 6SE 150mm f/10 Telescope has a SchmidtCassegrain style to maintain portability but without sacrificing a 6" diameter, which is a wide enough scope with enough light-gathering capabilities for deeper space observing mostly the moon but also the rings of Saturn and nebulae.

Using Celestron's proprietary StarBright XLT multi-coating system, light transmission is increased throughout the entire optical path with anti-reflection multi-coated lenses, highly-reflective multi-coated mirrors, and Crown optical glass elements. It comes with a NextStar+ computer hand controller, which is equipped with 40,000 celestial object presets and can hold an additional 200 user-defined destinations. When you begin, be sure to include your time and time zone and then align on two known stars. Then the computer will know its location and is able to automatically find declination and right ascension of any of the objects in its database. There is also a "Tour Mode" which shows you a selection of popular objects for the time and date you are observing.

The included tripod is extendable from 3' to 4' so that you can sit or stand when looking through the 60x magnification eyepiece. A focusing ring allows you to observe objects without your glasses on, if desired. This telescope is considered a "T-Mount" and will connect with a variety of cameras if you have the right adapter, but adapters are not included. Here are adapters we rent:

The connecting tube is narrow and on full frame 35mm sensor cameras there may be vignetting. Where possible, put your camera into APS-C mode if this happens. 

You can view objects using an included eyepiece/viewfinder or with your camera using one of the above adapters but you cannot use both at the same time. As with regular telephoto lenses, your field of view narrows as the magnification increases. This will make objects harder to find and keep in frame. This telescope is ideal for star enthusiasts, backyard astronomers, astrophotographers, students, teachers, and night sky workshops.
