Product Highlights
  • 750mm f/5.0 Newtonian Reflector
  • Manual Equatorial Mount

The Celestron Omni XLT 150 reflector telescope is an excellent choice for the serious amateur astronomer. It is characterized by a large primary mirror to reflect light, and its light gathering capability makes it even more desirable. The unit is easy to set up, user-friendly, and offers a superb ergonomic design. The large aperture of this telescope makes it the perfect instrument for exploration beyond the visible universe.

The Omni XLT 150 comes with The CG-4 platform. This German equatorial mount features precision worm gears on both axes for smooth tracking and stability. Also included is a heavy-duty tripod with damping to eliminate vibration. The tripod is non-motorized and non-computerized. Its mechanical simplicity makes it very easy to operate.

Designed to satisfy the demands of amateur astronomers, this Newtonian Reflector telescope will allow detailed observation of the craters on the Moon, the rings of Saturn, the moons of Jupiter and more.

        nice telescope

        By Jose

        from G-dale AL.

        Comments about Celestron Omni XLT 150 5.9"/150mm Reflector Telescope Kit:

        Got the telescope delivered on the day they told me it would be, read the manual, set it up, and that night we saw Jupiter. For the money..... it works great. I'm a happy customer. Get that size just to try out reflectors and will get another, but bigger. Only downside, be sure to get a collimating eyepiece, or laser, to be sure the mirrors are aligned to insure best image possible.

          Comments about Celestron Omni XLT 150 5.9"/150mm Reflector Telescope Kit:

          The quality of the image is great for casual observation even with the eyepieces that came with the scope. It's light enough that it isn't a hindrance to setting it up on a whim and yet powerful enough to see pretty much everything you need in the sky. We were out with the local astronomical league on a camping trip and the weather was going in and out of rain and clear skies. The 12 inch SCTs and the 14in Dobsonians never made it out. Everybody just used my scope that could be set up and taken down in minutes. For this price point, consider this scope rather than a smaller aperture but with a Goto. A smart phone or a tablet can help you find the planets, deep sky objects, etc.
          Just one negative... if you live in latitudes that are less that 20 - 25 degrees, the counterweights dangle too low and bump on one of the legs of the tripod when you want to move the scope from left to right requiring the counterweight disks to be lifted over the leg. A little inconvenient but not the end of the world. But for that, I'll take off one star from an otherwise 5 star experience.

          Great beginner/intermediate scope. Very nice optics. A little on the heavy side, but G4 mount is quite stable. Reviewed after use of a few times.

              I guess I didn't really think about the size much, but it was so much larger than I was expecting, and heavier too. That being said, the first night I assembled it, the instructions were easy to follow. My first observations were amazing, compared to my old (30 years plus) refractor. The bonus Meade eyepiece is much better than the standard eyepiece. I had a hard time identifying what I was looking for, because so many more appeared than I could see with my eye. Once I got the base pointed and oriented in the proper direction, finding and following objects was very easy. My first observations of the moon brought out detail I had never seen before with binoculars, or the old refractor. This is everything I was looking for in my new scope, except heavy to move (but great for stability of image).
