Description

Omni XLT series features the stable platform of the CG-4 mount and high quality optics. This Newtonian telescope has a 150mm aperture and an f/5 focal ratio. Using aspheric shaping technology in conjunction with hand-figuring the optics, the Omni XLT presents an image with virtually no spherical aberration. We also added our famous StarBright XLT coating system to further enhance light transmission.
