Celestron Omni XLT 150 Telescope - Reflector
At the heart of the Celestron Omni 150 XLT, is a high-quality Newtonian Reflector style telescope. Using aspheric shaping technology in conjunction with hand-figuring the lens for absolutely the best optics available. We're talking about a 6 Inch aperture with a limiting stellar magnitude of 13.4 and 0.76 arcseconds of resolving power. Couple that with a 750 mm focal length, a focal ratio of f/5, and Celestron's StarBright XLT optical coating system, and this scope presents an image with virtually no spherical aberration. With superior optics and a stable platform, the Celestron Omni XLT series is a great choice for astrophotography. Use the optional dual-axis motor drive (#CE-93522) and polar axis finder (#CE-94221) to track objects for long exposure photography. This handsome scope comes backed with a two year Celestron warranty and will endure as long as your fascination with the Cosmos!

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
I've seen a variety of conflicting information about the focuser that comes with this scope, anything from a 1.25" rack and pinion to a 2" Crayford. In your specs it says 2" rack and pinion. In the answer to one of the previous questions it says 1.25" rac
The older version (up to 2014) has a 1.25" Rack and Pinion focuser, while the current model now comes standard with a 2" Rack and Pinion focuser with a 1.25" adapter.
I have an xl200gps and I would like to control my scope from inside my house when it is outside using the WIFI module along with using a webcam to see what the scope is pointed at. And will it accept the present Meade auto star suite program that I hav
There are a couple complications with what you are proposing. While the SkyFi will allow WiFi scope control, it will only do so using the Sky Safari App or program - not Autostar Suite. Also, you would have to have the camera hard wired as there are not
Will this accept 2" eyepieces?
Yesm, the newer version of this telescope includes a 2" focuser. The older version up to 2014 only had a 1.25" focuser.
The specs have... Telescope Aperture 5.1" Telescope Focal Ratio f/5 Telescope Focal Length 750mm This isn't correct, right? The aperture is 150mm (5.9")
You are correct. The website has now been updated with the correct values.
Can you tell me what the physical and optical thicknesses are for this filter?
According to Hutech, the physical thickness of the metal filter cell is 5mm not including the male threads and the glass thickness is 2.5mm.
Ok, looking to buy the Omni xlt 120 or the omni xlt 150. I want a good crisp clear view of planets, galaxies and nebulas. Anybody help me with my decision? One more thing, the xlt 150 is lil cheaper with the bigger lense, why? I thought bigger was better!
Glad you're enjoying it! The reason that the 150 is cheaper than the 120 is that reflectors require less labor to make than refractors making them cheaper per inch of aperture. As for which I think would be better in your case, I would go with the 1
