Great little scope and mount

  • Excerpt: I purchased this mount and scope to be my grab and go unit and it sure has lived up to my expectations. It is a very stable, lightweight, portable mount that packs and sets up quickly. The optics in the 102mm refractor are excellent for the price you are paying for it.
  • Pros: Accurate, Compact, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction

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.
  • 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.

Great for planets

George Iani, B&H Photo
24 January 2012
  • Excerpt: In my astronomy group we were used to reflectors, and we had a great surprise when this Omni XLT 102 joined in. As it has no secondary in the way, Jupiter looks much sharper. The equatorial mount is sturdy and precise if you know how to point it to the celestial pole.
  • Pros: Sharp, Strong Construction

Good but very heavy.

MM, Amazon
16 May 2013
  • Summary: We are happy with this product. It seems to be of good quality and comes with good quality optics at a reasonable price. The downside is, it is bloody heavy. We are talking about 3 stone in weight!
