Best Buy Customer Reviews

Celestron Nexstar 8 SE5 Posted by: from: on I received my telescope 7 days after ordering. I have found the mount to be stable the optics are of high quality. You definitely want to get an alternate power supply. I have the Celestron power tank. With the power tank I have easily gotten 6 hours of use each night for several nights before needing to re-charge. The views of deep space objects are incredible and exceeded my expectations. I have gotten truly inspiring views of Saturn, Jupiter and mars as well. I would definitely recommend this for anyone. The Goto computer is easy to use and is reasonably accurate once aligned.

Excellent Telescope5 Posted by: from: Sacramento, Calif on I did all my research online and then went in to the store to order. They were kinda shaky at first telling me to go online to order it. I gently persisted and finally found someone that would try. I had them add the next day delivery for $15 and it all worked. Next day I had my new 8SE. It only comes with one eyepiece (25mm) so no 480x yet but we got to see the rings of saturn!!! The moon is stunning!! Unit comes with very good software. Get the GPS and power supply. Need tips to make it work, like finding point of balance and don't put it together upside down, not kidding. Line up index marks, eyepiece should be on right, won't track if opposite.
