The largest of the NexStar SE family with 78% more light gathering than the 6 Inch model, the NexStar 8SE will enable you to see deep into the Universe. The distinctive patented fork arm with ergonomically designed integrated hand control cradle gives solid support to Celestron's classic 8" optics. The NexStar 8 SE features Schmidt-Cassegrain 8 Inch aperture optics with our premium StarBright XLT coatings, powerful 2032mm focal length and an f/10 focal ratio. The NexStar 8SE has all the same features as Celestron's most advanced computerized GoTo telescopes, including the revolutionary SkyAlign alignment technology, a sky tour feature, a database of over 40,000 celestial objects and easy to use hand control. Plug the optional SkySync GPS Accessory into NexStar's Auxiliary port and download data from orbiting GPS satellites for truly quick and easy alignments. The universe may be full of mysteries, but using the NexStar 8SE isn't one of them.

PLEASE NOTE:

NexStar Handsets can be prone to error messages due to voltage fluctuations from the use of rechargeable or low powered batteries. This can be rectified by "flashing" the handset (full details are given on Celestron's website) and can be mitigated by using new lithium batteries or the use of Power tanks, such as the Celestron PowerTank Lithium or Celestron PowerTank 7.

The Buy Now Pay Later option comprises a 36 month loan following a six month deferral period.

During the six-month deferral period, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is partially repaid within six months, the remaining interest will be adjusted to reflect the new balance. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, however, a £29 early settlement fee is payable in respect of repayments within these six months.

Following the six-month deferral period, Novuna Personal Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 18.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Novuna Personal Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six-month deferral period is due to elapse.
