You can use the included NexStar+ hand control to locate over 40,000 celestial objects, or take a Sky Tour and let your telescope show you the best objects currently visible. Aligning your telescope is simple and painless with SkyAlign! This process makes alignment as easy as 1-2-3: just center three bright objects in your eyepiece and press ALIGN.
For even easier alignment, attach the optional StarSense AutoAlign accessory and your NexStar 5 SE will align itself! Advanced Features | Let the NexStar SE Grow with You: The NexStar SE series is compatible with all the high-tech accessories advanced users love.

For planetary imaging, there’s no better choice than a NexStar 5SE paired with an astroimaging camera. You can also experiment with wide-field deep sky astroimaging by replacing the telescope's secondary mirror with a DSLR or astronomical CCD camera with a Fastar/HyperStar lens assembly. From your first observing session and for years to come, the NexStar SE is your trusted companion.
