NexStar 4SE
Computerised Telescope

View the Universeís Most Impressive Celestial Objects
The 4SEís four-inch primary mirror packs enough light-gathering ability to observe the best that the solar system has to offer: Saturnís rings, the cloud bands on Jupiter, and geographic features on the surface of the Moon. When it comes to deep sky objects, take your 4SE to a dark-sky site and youíll see hundreds of pinpoint stars in the Hercules Globular Cluster, the spiral arms of the Whirlpool Galaxy, and more.

Revolutionary Single Fork Arm Mount
We know the best telescope is the one you will use most often. Thatís why Celestronís engineers created NexStar SEís unique, patented single fork arm mount. Itís perfectly portable and makes setup quick and easy. Whatís more, the NexStar SE breaks down into several lightweight and compact pieces, making it easy to transport, even in small vehicles. Youíll have no problem getting the NexStar SE to your favorite observing site, or setting it up quickly in your backyard.

Of course, itís whatís inside the mount that really counts. Sturdy construction from high-quality components give NexStar SE the pointing and tracking accuracy needed to observe and follow your favorite targets with push-button ease. Use the included NexStar+ hand control to locate over 40,000 celestial objects, or take a Sky Tour and let your telescope show you the best objects currently visible.

Aligning your telescope is simple and painless, too, thanks to SkyAlign. This process makes alignment as easy as 1-2-3: just center three bright objects in your eyepiece and press ALIGN. For even easier alignment, attach our StarSense AutoAlign and your NexStar SE aligns itself!
