Here is a perfect shape NexStar 6se. We bought it about 5 years ago, used it about 3-4 times a years for 3 years, then stored it away for the last two years. It still has some of the protective plastic on the tripod since it was used so little. We realize we just don't use it and it is too good of a scope to have it sit in it's boxes. It has always been in Colorado (dry weather), never outside very long, and was stored inside, in it's boxes.
There are no scratch and everything is as close to new as you can get. This is our loss but it would be so much better being used.
Here is a description of the scope:
"Celestron’s signature orange-tube telescope combines advanced features and excellent optics in one easy-to-use system, the NexStar 6SE. It’s the perfect choice for your first serious telescope, offering striking views at an economical price.
The Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes from Celestron brought the hobby of astronomy to the masses and established Celestron as the world’s premier telescope maker in the 1970's. Celestron’s proprietary method of producing Schmidt corrector plates was invented by Celestron founder Tom Johnson to create superb observations in an unparalleled portable design. By making quality optics at prices many could afford, Johnson ushered in a new generation of amateur astronomers.
Four decades later, Celestron has improved upon this design by adding cutting-edge features, while staying true to their founder’s intent.
The Celestron 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.
We know the best telescope is the one you will use most often. That’s why Celestron’s engineers created NexStar SE’s unique, patented single fork arm mount. It’s perfectly portable and makes setup quick and easy. What’s more, the NexStar SE breaks down into several lightweight and compact pieces, making it easy to transport, even in small vehicles. You’ll have no problem getting the NexStar SE to your favorite observing site, or setting it up quickly in your backyard.
Of course, it’s what’s inside the mount that really counts. Sturdy construction from high-quality components give NexStar SE the pointing and tracking accuracy needed to observe and follow your favorite targets with push-button ease. 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 NexStar 6SE computerized telescope is simple and painless, too, thanks to 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 our StarSense AutoAlign and your NexStar SE aligns itself!"
