Story

For the amateur astronomer's first foray into serious equipment, our Celestron Omni XLT 127 Schmidt-Cassegrain is the ideal telescope. The Schmidt-Cassegrain style offers a stunning picture with excellent resolution, ease of operation, and powerful magnification, all in a compact unit. Whether you're headed to Cherry Springs, Death Valley, or just out to the edge of town, the portability of our Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope makes spontaneous stargazing adventures possible. Our Omni XLT 127 has a large aperture, superior lens coating, and sufficient power for brilliant, true-color images of the planets in our solar system and Earth's moon, and can even reach out to deep-space nebulae and double stars. A German-made equatorial mount and highly stable stainless steel tripod offer quick setup and ease of navigation; with slow-motion controls and a low-power 6x finder optic, it takes no time at all to hone in on celestial objects. For those new to cosmic navigation, the adjustable height, 90-degree eyepiece, and an optional lower-magnification 50x optic provide comfortable viewing for all, making our Omni XLT 127 the ideal introductory telescope that will never be outgrown. With a few blankets, a thermos of cocoa, and our Omni XLT 127, you'll be fully prepared for all the clear nights and cosmic wonders ahead.

Notes

Celestron's Omni XLT 127mm f/10 Schmidt-Cassegrain EQ Telescope is ideal for users who want a compact and powerful observation platform that is able to achieve high magnifications for detailed views of the moon and planets as well as the ability to reach out past our solar system to discover deep-sky objects such as nebulae and galaxies.

The Schmidt-Cassegrain design, coupled with the proprietary Starbright XLT optical coating system, corrects aberrations like comas and chromatic aberration to produce clear and crisp, high-contrast images with true color rendition. For its compact 11" length, it features a long 1250mm focal length giving it a high magnification potential, and its large aperture ensures the resolution required to see dim deep space objects that smaller apertures are unable to see. The scope is outfitted with an internal focusing mechanism which accepts the included 1.25" 90° star diagonal. Celestron includes a 25mm eyepiece that yields a moderate 50x magnification to get new users started.

The included manual equatorial mount features large slow-motion knobs make it easy to track objects even while when wearing gloves, with setting circles on both axes for alignment and celestial navigation. The Omni mount includes a Vixen-style dovetail for mounting other optical tubes, and an adjustable-height stainless steel tripod with large and sturdy 1.75" diameter legs and an accessory tray that acts as a leg spreader for the tripod to add stability and reduce vibrations.
