The fine folks over at David Hinds Ltd, who supply a wide range of telescopes and accessories, have kindly supplied an awesome Celestron NexStar 4 SE telescope for this month’s competition, winner of our Editor’s Choice award in our reviews in issue 9 of All About Space magazine.
Featuring high-quality Maksutov-Cassegrain optics, the NexStar 4 SE is an ideal telescope for observing and photographing the wonders of space. With a total weight of 9.5kg including the tripod, the ultra portable 4 SE features a precision optical system with a 1,325 mm focal length and is the first Maksutov system to ever feature Celestron’s premium StarBright XLT coatings.
The 4 SE includes a camera control feature that allows you to remotely take a series of timed exposures using your digital SLR camera. The Flip Mirror Control, Straight Through Photographic Port and tripod featuring a built-in wedge help make short-exposure astrophotography a heavenly experience.
The NexStar 4 SE has all the same features as Celestron’s most advanced computerised GoTo telescopes, including the revolutionary SkyAlign alignment technology, a sky tour feature, a database of nearly 40,000 celestial objects and easy to use hand control.
