Celestron Omni XLT 150 R overview

  • 1Description

With its oversized aperture and shorter focal length, the Celestron Omni XLT 150R 150mm f/5 EQ Refractor Telescope is an ideal choice for making detailed observations and taking stunning images of the Moon and planets, with the capability to split binary stars and separate star clusters, and resolve galaxies and nebulae. Its fast focal ratio ensures wide fields of view with a moderate magnification potential, while requiring short exposure times during astrophotography sessions. The large 2" focuser and drawtube helps to prevent vignetting when using wide-field eyepieces when observation, or when using large imaging-sensor cameras for astrophotography. To allow the use of the included 1.25" eyepiece and diagonal, a reducer adapter is included and installs easily without tools. The scope comes with the manual CG-4 equatorial mount outfitted with steel worm gears on both axes for smooth tracking and stability with two counterweights for proper balancing to ensure smooth movement. Also included is a heavy-duty stainless steel tripod to provide a sturdy and steady platform.
