      Comments about Celestron Omni XLT 150R Refractor Telescope:

      First of all, Hayneedle's customer service is superb.

      A lot of people have mentioned that this scope is just for deep sky object, but it is very good on planets also. Just need to know which filter to use to reduce the chromatic aberration.

      This is a fantastic scope, I've seen objects that I have never seen on my other refractor and a reflector that are about the same size.

      Fantastic Item, Fantastic Customer service from Hayneedle and Celestron.

        Comments about Celestron Omni XLT 150R Refractor Telescope:

        This item is very heavy and sturdy feeling, it isn't cheap and flimsy feeling like other brands or models. I did the research on this specific one and I am very glad I bought it. I am able to see Saturn and beyond, brightly and extremely clearly from my observatory on my roof.

        A telescope being heavy isn't a con, either.

        Comments about Celestron Omni XLT 150R Refractor Telescope:

        This is a very good scope for the money. I purchased the scope in November, and poor weather has limited my viewing to five or six sessions. However, these are my observations from those nights.
        First, the overall feel of the scope and mount is very solid. The scope is a little undermounted on the supplied mount. However, this is only manifested in a few seconds of vibration after moving or focusing the scope.
        The optics are very sharp. And the large lens means this scope sucks up tons of available light. So much so that I have used the provided lens cap with the center cap removed to reduce aperature when viewing the moon and planets. There is some chromatic abberation as would be expected with a short optical tube of this type. However, it has been much less than I feared. The addition of a minus violet filter has removed all but the slightest trace of false color. Views of Mars, Saturn, and the moon have been stunning. I was able to observe the Martian ice cap and dark "continental" features on Mars while viewing with a 5mm TeleView and 2.5X Powermate. This produces magnification of 375X. That is near the limit of the recommended power for the scope, However, images were sharp and full of detail.
        One of the weaknesses of the scope is the focuser. Fine adjustments can be difficult. However, it proves servicable for most viewing.
        I recommend this scope to anyone who wants a lot of scope on a budget. Sure, a triple lens 6" refractor would be nice. But that third lens comes at a very high price. The Celestron 150R will impress you.
