I had someone help me out in buying this so I was able to get 6 SE bundle instead of the 4 SE. From what I've read and seen, spending the extra $200 to get the 6 inch instead of the 4 was completely worth it. It would be harder to be convinced to spend another $400 to go to the 8 SE at the 6" seems to get the job done considering what you get after the rebate for the 6SE bundle.

Right out of the box and before I even played around with the computer alignment process I was able to get stunning views of Jupiter from each Eyepiece that comes with the kit. A Barlow is a must have for any scope kit, and the one with this pack performs nicely. Once I was able to take the time to read how everything works with the alignment I was able to get the Auto Two Star Alignment to perform flawlessly. I was able to tell the scope to go to Messier 42 (Orion nebula) and on the first try it came up perfectly centered! I live in an area with a a lot of light pollution but I was still able to get some clear views of the nebula quite well. I can't begin to imagine how well this will perform once I get it somewhere with darker skies, and thanks to the relatively light weight of the set-up travelling with it should not be too much of a burden.

Definitely get the 6SE instead of the 4SE and definitely get the bundle package. A an excellent deal for a great scope!

I just bought this. Firstly the 6SE is poorly designed. Simple things like the battery case cover and the telescope control slot does not fit properly and is not closing correctly. Also, the 6" lens cover is not tight and drops all the time. The Skyalign is very weak. Even though it says aligned, it is off quite often and is very sensitive. The interface on the remote control is terrible. Given that we have smartphone technology I have no clue why its still using a tiny LCD display using a pathetic keyboard to scroll through the various menu items. The power tank is great though its a lead acid battery which means that you have to keep it charged often or the whole thing will be useless. All in all, I think that given the state of consumer technology this product is generations behind and has a lot of room for improvement to make the user experience far better.

    Telescopes.com rocks! I ordered the scope on a Sunday and it arrived on my doorstep on Tuesday -- everything was present as ordered and in great shape.

    Can't go wrong with Celestron -- and, you can't go wrong with Telescopes.com; keep up the great work!

        Broke down and finally got my first telescope. The 6SE has been great so far. I've been able to see the moons of Jupiter, the moon in tremendous detail, the Orion nebula, and the rings of Saturn all from my driveway. Great optics. Based on other's recommendations and my experience, definitely recommend getting the AC power adapter and the eyepiece/filter accessories.

          hayneedle deserves 5 star for ease of purchase, shipping, and fixing a small problem that was celestrons fault. The telescope is awesome, it is lighter than i expected and very easy to to setup and use. The perfect beginner scope if you can afford it. I would give the telescope 4.5 stars because a piece was missing

          Comments about Celestron NexStar 6SE Telescope Ultimate Bundle:

          Not too bad, easy to align. Could see some DSOs, double stars, Andromeda etc. Mount is very shaky though, with the slightest breeze or just by touching the focus knob will cause it to shake making it very hard to focus your target. Color filters in the kit fail to impress, moon is still very bright and uncomfortable to look at while other targets look much better without. Power tank is awesome! I've charged it once and used the scope on about 5 sessions of 2+ hours on that same charge, while using the light to setup and stuff as well.

          Great product overall!

            Comments about Celestron NexStar 6SE Telescope Ultimate Bundle:

            The 6SE is a great scope and the bundle additions of the power-tank and Celestron lens kit made the bundle a fantastic value for delivering an "out-of-the-box" experience of having everything I needed to start stargazing in the middle of my backyard. The lens and filter kit provide a nice range of magnification options for this scope and the power-tank is a must-have accessory to provide hours of uninterrupted tracking without relying on AC power.

            I ordered on a Friday and everything was delivered the following Tuesday. Hayneedle kept me updated throughout the process from fulfillment to shipping and tracking updates to delivery. I am very pleased overall with my first ordering experience from Telescopes/Hayneedle
