Celestron Omni XLT 102mm AZ Refractor Telescope

Celestron's Omni series of equatorial mounts have set industry standards for elegant design for many years now- and this latest addition to the lineup is no different; bringing the highest grade of sophistication to an altazimuth type mount; designed from scratch, it can be said to be the finest manual AZ mount ever crafted and released by Celestron.

It's easy to track targets with the worm gears on both axes; smooth motion at your fingertips. What is more, there are slip clutches on both axes for quick and easy pointing. All of this rests atop a sturdy aluminum tripod, providing solid anchorage for the Omni AZ, stabilizing the images viewed through the telescope. Assembly is simple, requiring no tools and taking mere minutes for most!

But it's not just ease of assembly and motion that the Omni AZ excels in; ideal for both day and night observation s, a dual position arm can be pulled back to point the telescope higher into the sky, or adjusted to aim lower for viewing the horizon and below. Indeed, this adjustment system makes the telescope ideal for balconies or other high locations in the world. The Omni then, is not merely optimal for viewing the heavens above, and the majesty of the stars- but also for wildlife, landscapes- and more! Not to mention, the telescopes design has use as a showpiece in mind; making it valuable even when not in use!

And of course- just like the entire Omni Line, this model shares the high quality components that have always made the Omni family synonymous with bright, clear views. This new AZ telescope can boast that all of it's optical surfaces are fully coated with XLT Optical coatings. This being a proprietary technology present in Celestron’s observatory grade telescopes that ensures maximum light transmission, and the signature crisp views of the Omni line of telescopes.

The light-gathering ability of the 102 mm refractor is more than enough to view all the best celestial objects in this solar system and beyond. The telescope has a wide field of view, making it possible to fully appreciate extended objects such as the Pleiades Star Cluster, Andromeda Galaxy, or to simply pan about the Milky Way. Some telescopes possess the ability to invert or flip your subjects, but Omni XLT AZ 102 includes erect image objects for properly oriented images. Your Omni AZ telescope also includes a high-quality 25mm Plossl eyepiece.

In way of summary, it's simple; anything from a bird in the distance, to a galaxy in the depths of the Cosmos, this telescope can be used to observe it quickly, accurately- and precisely. It's easier than ever with this telescope, which uses a dual circle reticle instead of a red dot in it's all-new StarPointer Pro finder scope, preventing any obscuring of what you are trying t o find with it.
