Celestron NexStar 5SE + accessories ** $,1250 (or best offer) **

** PRICE REDUCED - all sensible offers considered**

I bought this fantastic telescope new from Bintel and it immediately got me hooked into astronomy, quickly sending me down the rabbit hole into this amazing hobby. The computerised, go-to mount makes itís perfect for someone looking to get started in this hobby or as a great telescope to pop in the car and take to a dark sky site. As you can see in the photos, it is in excellent condition and comes with several additional premium accessories to further enhance your night-time viewing and explore some more advanced viewing/imaging as you get more experienced. The sample pictures were taken with this telescope.

I am now asking just $1,250 for the complete package (sensible offers considered). Pickup from Melbourne (Altona), or shipped at buyer's expense.

Celestron NexStar 5SE Telescope main features:
  • 5-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope with StarBright XLT optical coatings
  • 25mm Celestron Plossl eyepiece & star diagonal
  • Fully-computerised alt-azimuth GoTo Mount on a sturdy tripod.
  • In-built database of >40,000 celestial objects. Select the object you want to view and watch it magically slew to the target and automatically start tracking!
  • Effortless alignment possible using Celestronís SkyAlign technology, which is perfect for beginners to get setup and running quickly.
  • Built-in wedge that turns it into an equatorial mount for long exposure astrophotography.
  • Internal battery compartment allows easy portability to remote sites if you want to escape the city glow. Also included is a 12v power adapter if you are near power.
  • Includes all original manuals and software.
  • RRP: $1999

Additional accessories included:
  • Celestron Reducer / Corrector: Changes focal ratio from f/10 to f/6.3 allowing wider field of view and reducing exposure time by a factor of 3 for improved astrophotography (RRP: $299)
  • Tripod vibration suppression pads: Rapidly dampens vibration caused by wind / bumps (RRP: $119)
  • Celestron Piggyback mount allowing you to use the guided mount to attach your DSLR to the telescope and take advantage of the mountís tracking capabilities for long exposure, widefield photos (RRP: $49)
  • 3x Barlow lens for up-close images of the planets (RRP: $59)
  • 3D-printed Bahtinov mask and fine-focus adjuster to achieve perfect focus every time and achieve pin-sharp images (RRP: $25)
  • 12v mains power adapter (RRP: $20)

Note: DSLR camera shown in photos is NOT included Ė shown only to illustrate how the piggyback mount can be used.
