I'm going to get a Celestron nexstar SE 6 or SE 8th. Cwo24  Cera good for planets?? camera seems pretty good. Would  i need a Barlow lens with either of these scopes?  2x?

Moving to Solar System. 

 

If the Cwo 24 Cera is the ZWO ASI224MC, then yes, it's good for planets. You would need a 2X Barlow with either scope.

Agreed - the ASI224MC is the colour camera to start on with a 2x Barlow.

 

Have a look at these tutorial videos, you will learn a lot smile.gif
