     Celestron  - Omni XLT 120 mm Refractor Optical Tube Assembly (OTA) w/ StarBright XLT Coatings  

 

          

  • High quality optics start with each lens and mirror being hand selected so only the finest grade of optical glass is used
  • StarBright XLT coatings provide maximized light transmission
  • 25 mm multi-coated eyepiece - 20 mm eye relief, 50° FOV
  • 1.25" star diagonal
  • 120mm (4.72") aperture and limiting stellar magnitude of 12.9, plus 0.97 arc seconds of resolving power, coupled with a 1000mm focal length and focal ratio of f/8.3 presents an image with virtually no spherical abberation.

 

                

 

  • Rack and pinion focuser:  2” focuser, with 1.25” eyepiece adapter. The 1.25” adapter has external T-threads that let you connect a 35mm camera to the scope for prime focus photography using an optional T-ring with no other camera adapter required. Dual focusing knobs with rubber gripping surfaces for precise image control with either hand.  The large 2" focuser barrel accepts optional 2" diagonals, eyepieces, and direct imaging accessories.
  • Star diagonal:  90° viewing angle prism-type 1.25” star diagonal with fully multi-coated mirror.
  • Finderscope:  6 x 30mm straight-through achromatic design,  StarBright multi-coated optics, with a 7° field of view.
  • Multi-coated optics:  Fully coated on all surfaces with multiple layers of anti-reflection materials for maximum light transmission and excellent contrast.
  • Lens cap/aperture stop:  A protective lens cap is provided to cover the objective lens of the telescope and keep it dust-free when the scope is not in use. The lens cap has a built-in aperture stop in the center.  When observing the Moon and planets, leaving the lens cap on the telescope with the aperture stop removed will reduce chromatic aberration (the faint halo of violet light or “spurious color” visible around very bright objects inherent in all achromatic refractor telescopes). The lens cap should always be completely removed when observing faint deep sky objects such as nebulas and galaxies, where full aperture is essential and chromatic aberration is not problematic.  But objects requiring high power and high contrast – globular clusters, close binary star pairs, lunar and planetary images, will delight and amaze you!
  • Tube ring mounts:  The scope’s optical tube fits into a set of felt-lined split and hinged tube rings that are bolted to a (Vixen style) dovetail bar.

OPTIONAL: 
 This XLT 120 Optical Tube Assembly can be mounted to most all CGEMs / Tripods via its Vixen style dovetail bar, howeverit is best matched to Celestron's CG-4 Equatorial Mount (product #91509).  This mount can be further up-graded toCelestron's Dual-axis Motor Drive/ Drive Corrector  (#93522) - essential for astrophotography.  An optional Polar Axis Finder (#94223) is also available to increase the accuracy of your alignment.
