Great Telescope

Chris, opticsplanet.com
10 July 2013
  • Summary: I finally had a chance to use this under fair/good skies. It gave an incredible view with an 8.8mm eyepiece which gave about 115x I only looked at Venus and Saturn. Phase of Venus could be seen and Saturn was great looking with rings visible and four pinpoint moons. Rings A and B had a clear division and I could see banding across the surface of the planet! so awesome.

Celestron 102mm refractor

David, opticsplanet.com
20 August 2012
  • Summary: This is an excellent value in an astronomical telescope of the refracting type. The optics and German equatorial mount are very good and provide excellent stable viewing. Many accessories, such as eye piece kits are available for this telescope at reasonable prices. It is a traditional astronomical telescope, with German equatorial mount and is not for the viewer who relies on automatic pointing by computer to find objects in the sky, but rather for the amateur willing...
  • Pros: Good optics and solid mount work together to provide excellent viewing. Easy to set up with clear instructions. Excellent value for the money.
  • Cons: None for a knowledgeable buyer. Aperture is smaller than available with other telescope types. Not for the user who relies on electronics to find objects in the sky.

Excellent Entry-Level Serious Telescopoe

fly99, Orion Telescopes & Binoculars
12 April 2010
  • Excerpt: This is my second telescope. I will first explain what went wrong with my first scope to provide context for my comments on the Celestron XLT 102. My first one was a more economical GO-TO computerized reflector. I thought the computer would help me to learn the sky. Instead of learning the sky, I spend most of my time and energy went to trying to figure out how to use that frustrating computer.
  • Pros: Accurate, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction

I love this scope!

Quatermass, Orion Telescopes & Binoculars
2 February 2010
  • Excerpt: I've always wanted a big refractor - in my youth, it was always recommended that a 3" was the minimum, so a 4" seemed to be a really good idea. I researched widely and this was the most scope I could get for the money. I've only had it for a couple of weeks, but wow - I'm impressed! Easy to set up, big lens, superb construction, great accessories, and easy to add to.

  • Excerpt: [@] originally bought Celestron AstroMaster 130EQ, later returned it and bought Celestron OMNI XLT 102. There was nothing wrong with the previous product; I just wanted a superior product. OMNI XLT 102 is a very good product. It has very good value for money. Optics used in this telescope is very high quality.
  • Pros: Accurate, Comfortable Eyepiece, Good Value For Money, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction

Can't go wrong

wako1340, Orion Telescopes & Binoculars
14 March 2009
  • Excerpt: This is my first telescope, so I bought this 4inch refractor because it is such a low maintenance item and since there is a lot of light pollution where i live, i've read that refractors are most ideal. It's not too big and not to small and for the price its really the most aperture in a refractor that i'm gonna get for the money. I know i could've gone bigger but this is my first scope and i wanted to make my veiwing sessions as hassel free as possible.
  • Pros: Accurate, Comfortable Eyepiece, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
