Group Description

Welcome owners of Celestron NexStar 8 telescopes and all who are interested in the evolution of NexStar 8 telescopes!! This group is specifically dedicated to Celestron's NexStar 8 telescopes' users and to any others who wish to acquire knowledge about these telescopes. If you own or are thinking of owning the NexStar 8i, 8iSE, or 8SE this is the group for you. All are welcome to share questions, information, problems, or NexStar 8 experiences with the group. These 8" telescopes are truly marvelous. With NexStar GoTo capability and their light weight, they are sure to please the most discriminating amateur astronomers.

Because the NexStar 8 telescopes do not exist in a vacuum, comparison with other telescopes can be useful in considering purchase of any type of NexStar 8. Therefore, discussion of other telescopes and posting of pictures taken with other telescopes are appropriate for purposes of comparison. For the same reason, general discussion of astronomy as it relates to telescope use is on topic since better understanding of astronomical concepts facilitates the use of any telescope. Especially welcome is discussion of specific objects and their characteristics viewed through the NexStar 8 telescopes. However, all discussion and posted pictures should be on-topic in being related to astronomy and/or telescope use. Also, all discussion should be characterized by courtesy, respect, and civility. Disagreement is welcome, but it should be expressed agreeably. Rude and derogatory remarks are unacceptable in this outstanding group which is dedicated to sharing the knowledge and joy of astronomy. The NexStar 8i, 8iSE, and 8SE telescopes are the focal point of the fun and joy of amateur astronomy for our group.
