B &H has put together the Celestron NexStar 8SE 203mm f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain Observation Kit to give you everything you’ll need to get out and sky watch. It includes an 8″ NexStar 8SE catadioptric telescope with a stainless steel adjustable-height tripod, the SkyPortal WiFi module that directly connects to your smartphone running the free SkyPortal app, a Power Tank power pack, an AC-to-DC power adapter, a five-piece eyepiece set, six planetary filters, a Moon filter, a 2x Barlow lens, and a foam-lined hard carrying case for the eyepieces and filters. No matter where you are, or what you want to observe, this kit has you covered.

  • Celestron NexStar 8SE 203mm f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain GoTo Telescope

    Representing the largest aperture in the series and drawing in more light to see deeper into space than smaller versions, Celestron ‘s NexStar 8SE 203mm f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain GoTo Telescope is a powerful yet portable scope that can be used for observing everything from the Moon and planets to deep-sky objects like stars, galaxies and nebulae, while maintaining the user-friendly interface of the SE series. 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. While the focal ratio is a relatively slow f/10, the mount’s precision tracking system allows it to be a competent shorter-exposure astrophotography imaging platform for the Moon and planets.

    Driving the dual servo motors on the mount is the brain of the NexStar 8SE: the iconic NexStar+ computer hand controller. Packed with 40,000+ celestial objects, it can hold up to 100 additional user-defined destinations and is updatable via the Celestron website. It has multiple alignment procedures to get you observing fast, including the super-easy SkyAlign system. Capable of being used in the northern or southern Hemispheres, the NexStar has sidereal, lunar, and solar tracking speeds to accurately follow near- and deep-sky objects, plus nine slew speeds and the ability to automatically trigger a camera’s shutter release for Fastar or piggyback wide-field photography or conventional prime-focus astrophotography.

  • Celestron Ultra High Contrast Light Pollution Reduction Filter (1.25″)

    LPR ( light pollution reduction ) filters are designed to selectively reduce transmission of certain wavelengths of light, specifically those produced by artificial light. These include mercury vapor, high & low pressure sodium vapor lights and the unwanted natural light caused by neutral oxygen emissions in our atmosphere. The UHC LPR filter has improved contrast over the typical broadband filters, giving darker background skies and noticeably improved contrast of emission nebulae. The advanced coatings enable and impressive 97% total transmission across the entire bandpass, with total blockage of prominent light pollution lines. It is a perfect filter for viewing nebula from light polluted skies as well as for boosting the contrast of nebula from dark sky sites.

    Multilayer, plasma-assisted and Ionbeam hardened dielectric coatings yield supreme durability
