Comments about Celestron Celestron NexStar 4SE Telescope:

I have been through many telescopes, so damaged because of my own stupidity, When I first got this telescope, I was afraid to touch it. As soon as my Papi convinced me that it won't bite, I fell in love with it. When it is not raining or cloudy I can see everything. I love this telescope. Thank you for everything and I wish you a wonderful holiday season.
