    Comments about Celestron Omni XLT 127 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope:

    This is the first telescope I've had since I was a kid. I've always had a fascination with the heavens, and this telescope was the best reintroduction to astronomy I could have asked for. The optical tube is extremely compact, making for easy transport. The optics themselves are of top quality for this price range, everything was properly set up right out of the box. The equatorial mount is somewhat heavy, but I wouldn't have it any other way. It creates an extremely solid base for the scope. The fine tuners work without a hitch, and positioning the scope and locking it in place works superbly. This telescope is perfect for the person looking for something outside of the department store range, but who doesn't have two grand to spend on one of the more expensive Schmidt-Cassegrain! It's the best of both worlds. I will be using this telescope for many years to come.

      Comments about Celestron Omni XLT 127 Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope:

      This is my first telescope and mount. I did a lot of research and decided to get the smaller Schmidt design. I am not disappointed. I have conducted 2 viewings, both outside my condo in the parkin lot with lights everywhere. The optics deal with the light pollution extremely well, but I really want to get this thing to a dark location. The mount is very sturdy for this model scope. If you had te bigger refractor or 150 reflector, it may get a little shaky at times (that's just a guess by the way), but with the 6 pound Schmidt, it is more than enough mount to handle it.

      I recommend this setup for anyone looking to start out. I also picked up the Mease 4000 eyepiece and filter kit. The combo works well together.
