Celestron Omni XLT 150 Reflector

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.

Our view

The Omni 150 is a 6" f/5 Newtonian and represents the best value for money telescope in the Omni range. It has a parabolic primary mirror to remove the spherical aberration that would be present in an f/5 spherical mirror. This is an excellent all-purpose telescope for those starting out in astronomy, or as a second more portable telescope. Its performance for deep-sky is excellent for a 6" aperture, and it will provide sharp lunar and planetary images. The German equatorial mount is simple to use with smooth slow motion controls, and optional single or dual axis motors can be added for tracking in RA. With a digital SLR camera at the focus of the telescope, it becomes a 750mm f/5 wide-angle lens. It also offers great views of the moon when a webcam is used in place of the eyepiece.

Tips

Use an Omni 2X Barlow when using a webcam for imaging the moon and planets. This will give you the larger image scale you require. Also, keep the telescope collimated for consistent optical quality. Contact us here at Northallerton for further advice.
