Product Highlights
  • 1000mm f/8.3 Achromatic Refractor
  • Manual Equatorial Mount

The Celestron Omni XLT 120 Telescope offers even more brightness and aperture than its sibling XLT 102-it is a superb 4.7" refractor for the price, complete with Celestron's StarBright XLT coatings.  The Omni XLT 120's excellent and contrasty images are appealing for observation, and the scope's also ready for some imaging duty, too.  The focuser is the larger 2" size, to allow you to take advantage of some delicious wide field star viewing should you ever upgrade to an optional 2" diagonal and longer 2" eyepiece.

Unlike altazimuth-mounted scopes, the Omni XLT's quite viable for astrophotography; it has a T-mount adapter, and when augmented with the optional dual axis motor and polar axis finder can achieve brilliantly sharp long-exposure images of the faint objects such as nebulae.

The XLT 120 features the CG-4 manual mount, which doesn't require batteries.  Pound for pound, the choice of the CG-4 manual mount over motorized mounts will be advantageous to purists who are eager to learn the sky map.  It can be a rewarding experience.

Bright 4.7" refractor, with StarBright XLT coatings, gives great lunar/planetary viewing, wide field observing, and even some deep space use
Quality, classic CG-4 manual mount equipped with finely-geared slow motion control & setting circles for quick reference
Large 2" focuser barrel accepts optional 2" diagonals, eyepieces, and direct imaging accessories

Optional #93522 motor drive & #94221 polar axis finder allow long exposure imaging

        Comments about Celestron Omni XLT 120 4.7"/120mm Refractor Telescope Kit:

        This is a beautiful scope. Fit & Finish. Nice attention to detail. I especially like the slightly larger focus knobs. Beautiful images & really good all around scope. Enough aperture, yet still somewhat portable in weight. The CG-4 mount has no problem with the weight & I even have a 50mm Celestron go-scope piggybacking it. (Probably wouldn't suggest to much more than that). It is a little larger than appearing in the pictures. This is a long tube, so keep this in mind when looking for cases/bags etc. HIGHLY recommend!

        B&H - Always a pleasure. Great company to do business with. Thanks guys.

          Comments about Celestron Omni XLT 120 4.7"/120mm Refractor Telescope Kit:

          This product was ordered online, and,as always with B&H, everything went smoothly with the scope arriving as promised. I was immediately impressed with the quality of the scope, eq. tripod, and eyepieces. Everything went together with no problems. In use, being new to an equitorial mount, there is a learning curve that I hadn't anticipated. However, what I have learned is that this set up is great for folks at my amateur level. The views through the supplied Meade eyepiece are exceptional. The tripod works well only roughly pointed north and enables slow tracking of planets with little effort. Overall this is an exceptional value that I will use for years to come.

          Comments about Celestron Omni XLT 120 4.7"/120mm Refractor Telescope Kit:

          not a bad scope for the money, optics are nice, great views of dso's planets and moon. there is a little CA on brighter objects but i dont find it bothersome.
          the tripod and eq mount are pretty solid and smooth but this is my first refractor comming from a dob.I really like how portable this scope is, set up is a breeze.
          Cons on this scope would be the focuser, works a little stiff and hard to get focused at high mag.
          other than that I like the scope and having lots of fun with it!

          This telescope can be used to view the sky and land. Very stable but heavy. This was the best price I found anywhere. Came packaged very well. Will definately use this merchant again.

          This scope is crystal clear both celestrial and terestrial, counting the rings on Saturn and reading the names of hotels ten miles away. The weight is alittle more than exspected
