$912 - cheapest I have ever seen this scope. Scope alone is usually $1199, and this comes with a few additional accessories:

Filter, Lens Cleaning kit, Flashlight, Star Map included...

No tax for most and free shipping.

Considering this as a gift, is it fairly user friendly for older/less tech savvy people? Setup viable for a senior to do by himself?

I cannot give solid expertise on that. All I would say is to be sure to purchase the AC adapter as this does not come in the box. Celestron model runs about $25, but an after market adapter can be had for half the price on Amazon.

Yes, Pretty easy to operate. Auto 2 star alignment can be used without any knowledge of the sky. Highly recommend it

It might be a little heavy for one person to assemble, specially because you mentioned senior. Then again, Arnold Schwarzenegger is a senior and he should have no issues setting this up.

Would the 4SE be significantly lighter? I saw that deal also

The 8SE is 33 lbs + tripod 10 lbs VS the 4SE is 11 lbs + tripod 10 lbs. Definitely lighter but you would also be getting lower specs compared to the 8SE (8" aperture)

iirc, our local astronomy club have a couple of these in use, and they're definitely light enough for the more senior members of the club to physically setup by themselves. Alignment and star guide is automated, so that part of the set up will be super easy.

I own this telescope and bought this in 2007. Once you get the alignment worked out, everything is very easy to use.
