I had trouble with the motor being smooth as you moved the telescope up and down.

I liked the product, the Telescope, It was a little hard to get it to accept the 3 stars to get it working, the telescope when it was working was great. I only used it 4 times because of the overcast skies and the smoke from all of the wild fires but the reason I had to return it was because as you slew down it wasn't smooth it jerked and this is unacceptable when trying to locate stars. Also the sighting in scope was not smooth and it would jump past where you were trying to sight it in, it was kind of hard to get a good alignment with the telescope.

Disappointed

I have waited quite some time since purchasing this telescope to write this review. I wanted to test it under different conditions and our weather hasn't always cooperated with viewing. I am impressed with the alignment process, when it works. Several times I found the three bright objects as per instructions, centered them and waited for the process to complete only to have the message ""alignment failed"" scroll across the display. I had to purchase to 110 volt adapter because the batteries drained so fast and don't expect the scope to find objects with low batteries. My biggest complaint with the telescope is the vibrations, the single arm mount is anything but rock steady. It does perform very well as a 'carrier' for my DSLR when it is piggy-backed on the scope, but not when you try to shoot thru the scope. All in all, I wish I had spent a little more and got a Meade.

Excelente telescopio, peque??o, portable, pero potente.

Compre este telescopio con el objetivo de hacer fotograf?�a planetaria, aprovechar la oposici??n de marte, entre otras cosas, los resultados han superado mis expectativas, como se puede ver en las fotos que dejo a continuaci??n de Marte, Saturno, Venus, J??piter y Mercurio.Este es un poderoso telescopio con un tama??o y peso muy fciles de manejar. la puesta en estaci??n tambi?�n es muy fcil y bastante precisa.La combinaci??n de este telescopio con una cmara planetaria ASI 120 MC-S y una lente de Barlow TeleVue X3 son lo que me permiti?? obtener tan buenas imgenes. por supuesto adems de obtenerlas grabando videos y luego apilndolos en autostakkert y registaxComo puntos negativos dir?� que no viene con el transformador de 12 V, necesario para utilizar la montura sin bater?�as, y que si vives en un pa?�s h??medo necesitaras una cinta calentadora para evitar la condensaci??n en la placa correctora o no podrs utilizar el telescopio. adems de que el buscador no logra alinearse correctamente con el campo de visi??n del tubo.

Product arrived well packaged and was very easy to put together. We were not able to get anything to focus and the computerized slew didn't seem to recognize where we were (mid Missouri). I am giving it 5 stars because we did return the telescope after 7 days and the seller was wonderful regarding the return and gave us a full refund. It may have been my error as I am novice with telescopes. I did purchase the Celestron astronomy binoculars with tripod and those have been fabulous.

Nice telescope

This seems to work as advertised. Good images, and when alignment is done carefully (need to balance first) then the Sky Tour seems to work well. For transport just bought a cheap plastic tool box at Home Depot ad lined it with bubble wrap.

For the 4SE

This is an amazing beginner computerized telescope. The picture quality is terrific and the moon look awesome! Saturn, jupiter, mars, and venus look great. My only problems with it are is the power cord does not come with the scope and it goes through 8 double a's in a few hours. Also the go-to system isn't exact, but the auto tracking is very good.

Pic from iPhone.

I'm pretty happy with using the telescope. I managed to take a decent photo in terrible lighting conditions with an iPhone. The picture doesn't give the actual visual any justice. I haven't had time to drive out to an area with lower light pollution but I imagine it would be even better.

The Celestron 6SE is a versatile tool for both the beginner and experienced amateur astronomer

Hands down the best telescope I've owned so far. I've seen things with this telescope I never thought I'd be able to spot. So far I've viewed 4 planets, about 40 binary star systems, dozens of star clusters, and a few nebula. The telescope is very easy to calibrate and use. I do recommend a small reusable 12v lithium battery pack (roughly 7,000 mAH+ capacity) to power the whole thing, as it eats through regular batteries like crazy.

Telescope is great, but don't get the wireless accessory. The dongle is a paperweight. Telescope is really nice, though. The controls could be better. Celestron needs to work on their user experience and electronic engineering.
