Celestron Omni XLT 150 Reflector Telescope with Motor Drive
This Celestron Omni XLT 150 Telescope is packed with everything you need to view the skies with ease. This includes a classic 6” Newtonian reflector, a sturdy CG-4 German equatorial mount, dual-axis motor drives to track the stars, and a metal adjustable leg tripod. Due to their ease of use and functionality, the telescope and mount design of the Omni XLT have been used for many decades by amateur and professional astronomers alike. Put another way, the Celestron 150 Omni XLT can and will get the job done without relying on complicated (and costly) computerization, and because of this, you will have the thrill of learning the art of astronomy on your own and at your own pace.
About Celestron Reflector Telescopes
A Newtonian reflector uses a single concave mirror as its primary. Light enters the tube traveling to the mirror at the back end. Light is then "bent" forward in the tube to a single point, its focal plane. A flat mirror called a "diagonal" intercepts the light and points it out the side of the tube at right angles to the tube through the eyepiece. The eyepiece is placed there for easy viewing. Newtonian Reflector telescopes replace heavy lenses with mirrors to collect and focus the light, providing much more light gathering power for the money.
You can have focal lengths up to 1000 mm and still enjoy a telescope that is relatively compact and portable. Newtonian Reflector telescopes do require more care and maintenance because the primary mirror is exposed to air and dust. However, this small drawback does not hamper this type of telescope's popularity with those who want an economical telescope that can still resolve faint, distant objects. Newtonian reflectors produce a "right-side-up image" but the image will appear rotated based on the location of the eyepiece holder in relation to the ground. Newtonian reflectors are best for astronomical use where right-side-up does not matter.
