Description

Also other telescopes, used for other purposes, can be connected onto the same fork mount - such as a solar telescope or various cameras with a range of lenses, etc. The NexStar SkyAlign system is dead simple to perform, and you can skip over the polar alignment process and get straight to observing. An altitude-azimuth mount can move in the left-right and up-down directions, but can’t rotate in the z-axis. Large, 8-inch aperture legendary SCT optics with excellent light-gathering ability provides spectacular views of the Moon and planets, along with deep sky objects like the Whirlpool Galaxy and Hercules Globular Cluster. This type op scope is the ultimate visual package: easy and fast to align, no polar alignment, light weight for a 8″ so easy to transport.

Despite throwing out the poor tracking shots, the stars still have a pear shape, which was due to the alt-az mount’s tracking capability, the position of Orion in the sky, and field rotation. The star diagonal is a requirement for observing with this type of telescope so you don’t crane your neck.There are plenty of reviews around the Internet, so we’ve gathered a sample of views from owners of the NexStar 8SE. Catadioptrics, which are also known as compound telescopes, combine mirrors and lenses to provide a long focal length in a relatively short body.

Well, I think I was surprised to learn that most photos I viewed were taken with relatively small (80 mm - 100 mm aperture) telescopes.Now, without moving the main scope, adjust the viewfinder so that the same object’s top is in the very center of the viewfinder. When you see a picture of Celestron’s 8-incher, you might not appreciate just how easy it is to set up and transport. Be sure to take a photo of an even gray surface under noon sunlight with the filter in place so you can set a custom white balance image for the filter’s use. However, you will need to purchase the Celestron T-Adapter for Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope as well as the relevant T-ring for your camera such as the Canon EOS T-Ring or Nikon T-Ring. The NexStar 8 SE features Schmidt-Cassegrain 8" aperture optics with our premium StarBright XLT coatings and a powerful 2,032mm focal length and f/10 focal ratio.

The hand controller fits neatly inside the arm of the fork mount, and can also be extended for use while at the eyepiece. Get ready for a night of astroimaging with your mount faster than previously thought possible with All-Star Polar Alignment. As an astrophotographer, the first thing I noticed was the Alt-Az fork mount, and that’s not what you want if your primary interest is long-exposure astrophotography. This process makes alignment as easy as 1-2-3: just center three bright objects in your eyepiece and press ALIGN. This scope is sturdy and produce nice image and overall the perfect companion for serious observation.Beyond the solar system, your 8SE will show you hundreds of pinpoint stars in the Hercules Globular Cluster, the spiral arms of the Whirlpool Galaxy, and more. Happily, this is a great telescope to part with a significant chunk of cash for, which is why we declared it one of our best telescopes for seeing galaxies and DSOs. If I were to do a long-exposure of Saturn, the disc of Saturn would stay centered but, like a snow-angel’s wings, Saturn’s rings would fan out into blurry arcs and its moons would trace star trails.
