Celestron NexStar 4SE telescope
The Celestron NexStar SE telescope is part of the Nexstar series which is known for the high-quality finish of the telescopes and the use of fine hand-selected optics.

Due to the catadioptric construction the telescope can have a focal length of 1325mm. This makes this Celestron telescope very suitable for observing deep-sky objects.

Celestron NexStar 4SE telescope

The Celestron NexStar SE telescope is part of the Nexstar series which is known for the high-quality finish of the telescopes and the use of fine hand-selected optics. This also applies to the Celestron NexStar 4SE. This telescope has a Maksutov-Cassegrain design with a 102mm aperture. The telescope housing itself consists of high-quality aluminium. Due to the catadioptric construction the telescope can have a focal length of 1325mm. This makes this Celestron telescope very suitable for observing deep-sky objects. A StarPointer Red Dot finder is attached on the telescope with which you can quickly find celestial bodies.

Eyepiece

This Celestron telescope is supplied with a 25mm eyepiece which is compatible with any eyepiece fitting with a 1.25 inch diameter. In conjunction with the focal length of this telescope it is possible to achieve a 53x magnification! You can purchase an erecting eyepiece to have the image turned upright again. This way, it is possible to use the telescope as a spotting scope.

Legendary orange

The striking orange Celestron NexStar SE telescopes are inspired by the legendary 'Orange' Celestron telescopes, as many connoisseurs will undoubtedly know. No other colour has acquired so much fame in the world of astronomy. The new orange Celestron NexStar telescopes are a homage to the orange Celestron C8 telescopes which were manufactured between the sixties and the eighties. In the latter decade Celestron switched to a hip, shining black which effectively put an end to the orange era. 25 years later Celestron launched the new orange NexStar for nostalgic reasons and to carry on the Celestron tradition. We pay tribute to the orange colour!

GoTo functionality

The telescope and mount are equipped with a full GoTo system. This very handy system allows the telescope to automatically search celestial bodies for you. The system contains 40.000 pre-programmed celestial bodies and this makes stargazing a whole lot simpler and much more fun! The GoTo functionality features Celestron SkyAlign alignment technology which facilitates aligning the telescope no end. It is even possible to search for celestial bodies yourself and subsequently store them so you can focus on these objects again another time. The Celestron Nexstar 4SE telescope is controlled with a remote control which has a LED display

About the tripod

This tripod that comes with the Celestron Nexstar 4SE is very easy to collapse and set up. It is an altazimuth tripod with stainless steel legs. The tripod motor is entirely computer-controlled and with this motor you can easily keep tracking objects across the universe. We very recommend this tripod if you are into astrophotography. The tripod tracking motor is powered by AA batteries which are not included.

Mirror and coating

The 102mm mirror contains Celestron StarBright XLT coating. This coating distributes the light more evenly and this, in turn, enhances the light-gathering power and, thus, image contrast. Celestron have used aluminium, titanium and magnesium, among others, to get a coating which is as effective and as strong as can be.

Nexstar SE 4 Telescope Newbie

Reviews on the web of the SE4 Telescope made it sound as a very good and easy to use Telescope. This proves to be correct. As an Novice to the sport, I am over the moon as to the ease of use and a manual (user Guide) that is actually written in plain English. Build is great and it looks good. I like the substantial tripod and the feel of quality. I was only a little disappointed the the charger does not have a UK three pin plug but it does come with an adaptor. Easy to change if competent. All in all I am very pleased with my purchase.

Pluses
  • Focal Length
  • Hi build quality
  • Image quality
Downsides
  • Software a pain to load on Laptop

New Celestron Telescope

The Telescope Planet was extremely helpful in making the right decision as to which telescope would be right for us. They explained about all the different types and what and where we would be using it.

Pluses
  • Small scope
  • Good sturdy tripod
  • Ease of software usage and installation

Celestron 4SE

Great telescope for beginners or in this case a restarting hobbyist. I'm still surprised at the ease of use of this GoTo telescope. Aligning within 2 minutes and then simply with a push of a button to the desired object. Works perfectly. A first attempt to take pictures showed that the ALT-Z mount follows the stars pretty well with exposure times of 30s. In summary, recommended!

Pluses
  • Good price
  • GoTo works perfectly
  • Easy to set up

Amateurke's review

Got it delivered superfast at home and nicely on the timeand hour. unpacked it fast at night and a few seconds later it was ready. For an amateur this is just a super product. My first images of the moon were wonderful and everything I expected from it. For a beginners model this is really a recommendation, price/quality superb. Real recommendation...

Pluses
  • Beautiful images
  • Fast delivery
  • Price/quality very good
  • Put together very quickly
Downsides
  • None until now
