The 6SE’s six-inch primary mirror packs enough light-gathering ability to observe the best that the solar system has to offer: Cassini’s Division in Saturn’s rings, the cloud bands on Jupiter, and geographic features on the surface of the Moon. When it comes to deep sky objects, take your 6SE to a dark-sky site and you’ll see hundreds of pinpoint stars in the Hercules Globular Cluster, the spiral arms of the Whirlpool Galaxy, and more. A value at $1,099.00.

The telescope's f/6 optics and long 1200mm focal length will provide night after night of great observing performance, yielding bright views of celestial objects like the Moon and planets, and more distant fare such as cloudy nebulas, star clusters, and galaxies. A wonderful value at $849.99.

Within minutes of setting up the telescope, you’ll be navigating the sky with confidence. Excellent beginner’s scope at $469.95.
