The Celestron Omni XLT series comes in 3 different optical constructions. The refractor, the reflector and the Schmidt-Cassegrain construction. On the new Omni CG-4 mount with 1.7 inch stainless steel tripod, this is a nice combination to start the hobby with, or to pick it up again. What makes this series so special is that all models are provided with the famous StarBright XLT coating. By means of this coating less light is lost in the optics.
The Celestron Omni series is now also available as an azimuthal version, we have chosen the 102mm. The Celestron Omni XLT 102AZ is excellent for views and moon and planets. The slow motion controls finish it off, so you can easily find and follow an object.
