What can you see with the Celestron NexStar 8 SE Computerised Telescope

So I decided to buy a Celestron NexStar 8SE Telescope. It came in double quick time. As soon as I got it, I knew I would not be disappointed. The tripod it sits on is very sturdy, this has been a weak point in my previous smaller astronomy telescope, so good to see. It's dead easy to assemble, although best to do a trial run in daylight first.
