The Celestron Omni XLT 127 features a Schmidt-Cassegrain optical design coupled with the Celestron Omni CG-4 heavy-duty German Equatorial mount. The sturdy tripod features 1.75" stainless steel legs and a center tray for superior rigidity and vibration dampening. Along with the stable platform of the CG-4 mount the Omni XLT 127 features high quality optics. Using aspheric shaping technology in conjunction with hand-figuring the optics the Omni XLT presents an image with virtually no spherical abberation. Celestron has also added their famous StarBright XLT coating system to further enhance light transmission.
Celestron Omni XLT 127 - 5" Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope on CG-4 Equatorial Mount
At the heart of the Celestron Omni 127 XLT is a high quality Schmidt Cassegrain style telescope with hand chosen lens for absolutely the best optics available. We're talking about 5" aperture with a limiting stellar magnitude of 12.9 and 0.97 arc seconds of resolving power. Couple that with a 1250mm focal length and focal ratio of f/9.8 presents an image with virtually no spherical abberation. 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 (#93522) and polar axis finder (#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!

- Omni XLT 127 SCT
This scope is one of the best values I have ever seen! It has lots of light gathering power, superb optics and a mount. You won't need to worry about color correction either! I find the mount to be very stable for Visual Astronomy. It is a very good scope for Astrophotography also. Anyway you look at it, this package is lots of bang for the buck!!!

Product QuestionsQuestion by: Javier Cardona on Sep 10, 2016 1:22:00 PMYes, but additional accessories will be needed. You would need a dual axis motor kit https://www.optcorp.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=CG-4+Mount+Dual+Axis+Motor+Drive to allow long exposures, and then you would need a T-adapter https://www.optcorp.com/celestron-t-adapter-for-sct-telescopes.html and a T-ring appropriate for your camera brand. Lastly, we would recommend an f/6.3 reducer to allow for brighter images with sharper focus across the frame https://www.optcorp.com/celestron-f-6-3-reducer-corrector.html.Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on Sep 12, 2016 2:05:00 PM
