The Celestron Omni XLT 150 is a serious telescope for the dedicated amateur astronomer. You won't see a lot of gadgetry on this scope, just careful craftsmanship and optimized performance. The lenses and mirrors are hand selected and made from high-grade optical glass, so they provide sharp, well-lit images of deep-space objects. The equatorial mount features setting circles and slow-motion controls for manual tracking of your target over time. A pre-assembled tripod with 1-3/4" stainless steel legs provides a rock-solid base for the entire assembly.
More light for clear viewing
The 150mm aperture on the XLT 150 gathers plenty of light. That's crucial when you want to look at dim and distant objects like galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters. Celestron's StarBright XLT coating on the primary mirror makes sure that light reaches your eye, so you see stars, planets and deep-space objects in their full glory. This scope is versatile enough to allow detailed photographs of the moon and colorful images of Jupiter and Saturn. The sky's the limit.
