Omni XLT Series

Key Features

  • 150mm Newtonian Reflector OTA
  • 750mm Focal Length, f/5 Focal Ratio
  • XLT Anti-Reflection Fully Coated Optics
  • Omni CG-4 Manual Equatorial Mount

With its large primary mirror and moderate focal length, the Celestron Omni XLT 150mm f/5 EQ Reflector Telescope is an ideal choice for making detailed observations of the moon, with the capability to resolve distant objects like star clusters, galaxies, and nebulae. Its fast focal ratio further improves resolution while reducing exposure times during astrophotography sessions. It comes with the manual CG-4 equatorial mount outfitted with steel worm gears on both axes for smooth tracking and stability. Also included is a heavy-duty stainless steel tripod to provide a sturdy and steady platform.

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.
