Omni XLT Series

Quick Overview

  • High quality optics start with each lens and(or) mirror being hand selected so only the finest grade of optical glass is used
  • StarBright XLT coatings provide maximized light transmission
  • 25 mm multi-coated eyepiece - 20 mm eye relief, 50° FOV
  • CG-4 German Equatorial mount with setting circles and slow motion controls - to accurately locate and track sky objects
  • Ball bearings in both axis of the mount for smooth performance
  • Heavy-duty pre-assembled stainless steel tripod featuring 1.75" legs, accessory tray and bubble level
  • Easy no-tool setup
  • 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.

    What can you see through this 150mm Celestron reflector?

    With a short 750mm focal length and a huge light grasp 459 times that of the sharpest dark-adapted eye, the scope produces bright and wide-field images of the thousands of faint fuzzies outside the solar system – nebulas, galaxies, open star clusters, and more. With its 6” aperture, compact deep space objects – globular clusters, close binary star pairs, etc. – are sharply resolved. Using optional eyepieces and/or a Barlow to boost the magnification, you can also see subtle solar system details that are virtually invisible in smaller aperture scopes. You can study complex lunar craters, rilles, mountain ranges, and low contrast lunar ray detail. With reasonable seeing conditions, detail in Jupiter’s cloud belts and the Great Red Spot (actually closer in color to the Faint Pink Spot at this point in time) are visible, as are dusky markings on the face of Saturn and Cassini’s division in Saturn’s brilliant rings. Because of its great light-gathering capacity, you may need an optional neutral density filter to cut down the brightness of some solar system objects for maximum resolution.
    Optically and mechanically refined, and very reasonable in cost for a big 6” aperture reflector, this Celestron Omni XLT 150 has enough optical performance to keep you busy for the rest of your life.
