Celestron Omni XLT AZ 130 22152 overview and specs


The new Celestron Omni XLT 130 comes as standard with an AZ mount for ease of set up and use. With an attractive blue finish there are a few changes from the lower spec astromaster 130. The finder scope is now the Celestron starpointer-pro. Not only is this better than the single dot one you get with the astromaster, it fits on a dovetail mount, meaning it will accept many other visual and RDF finderscopes.

Optically you get Celestrons premium XLT coatings on a parabolic mirror as used on Celestron`s higher end telescopes. Rather than the budget eyepieces, you get one 25mm plossl. The focuser is a dual use 1.25″ / 2″ that will accept 2″ eyepieces as well as 1.25″

The 130mm f5 should make it perfect for wide field observing. Mix this with a quality 2″ eyepiece upgrade and you should get some stunning views of nebula and rich field star clusters
