THIS IS TRULY A CLASSIC TELESCOPE with decent combinations for beginners as well as enthusiasts for space travel! For deep-sky objects enthusiasts, the 6" large aperture of refractor is indeed a life companion. No electronic components and free from any maintenance issues. No battery is needed to operate.
Omni XLT series features the stable platform of the CG-4 mount and high quality optics. Using aspheric shaping technology in conjunction with hand-figuring the optics, the Omni XLT presents an image with virtually no spherical aberration. We also added our famous StarBright XLT coating system to further enhance light transmission.
With a premium 6" refractor optical tube assembly and a nice, all-manual German-type equatorial mount, the Celestron Omni XLT 150 R Telescope makes for easy observing right out of the box, with the capacity for shorter or terrestrial imaging without needing any other accessories. You can later add Celestron's optional motor drive and polar axis finder if you wish to perform long-exposure astrophotography.
As a large refractor instead of the more common reflector or catadioptric designs, the XLT 150 R has plenty of aperture to keep you duly entertained as a viewer, along with the optical capacity for serious high-contrast, wide field astrophotography. Refractors can't visually show you the things an 8-14" Schmidt-Cassegrain or reflector can, but they can show you plenty of interest, with wider views and inky-black skies to stun. It is a different experience. The focuser barrel directly accepts SLR cameras with an optional T-mount for your make, and with the optional motor drive and polar axis finder you'll be able to get great results with only a minimum of experience. Refractors are also far superior should you wish to enjoy some terrestrial viewing; just add a 45° erect image diagonal for an amazing, stationary-style spotting scope.
The XLT 150 refractor is equipped with Celestron's classic CG-4 German-type equatorial mount, a simple and understated support which you can easily operate manually with nothing more than a star map and red flashlight. You can easily trace the movement of your object of interest with just a single control as it moves along the night sky. Everything required for immediate use is included in this package.
Dual-axis Motor Drive with controller is exclusively included. It tracks your target without disappearing from your sight!
Moon is one of the most often observed celestial objects. It's edutaining for many of us, especially inspiring children upon lunar observation. Aperture of 150mm (or 6inch) is considered large for lunar observation. In order to appreciate the lunar's craters and mares, an increasing contrast Moon Filter is essential and helpful.
A 1.25 inch Moon Filter will be included in the Omni XLT 150 EQ Refractor without extra cost. This offer is valid while stocks last.
