Excerpt: Hassle free purchase from B&H. Received on time and shipped with care. The scope is solid and only having brought it out for a quick peek, was able to see jupiter and four of its moons cyrstal clear, Orions nebulae was easily seen and amazing ( using the 25 mm eyepiece that came with scope).
Excerpt: Easy to assemble. Very sharp image. Appears well contructed. 2" focuser allows for a variety of accessories. With a couple of accessory items was easy to mount digital camera. Only downside was focuser could have used a fine focus control.
Excerpt: This is a beautiful scope. Fit & Finish. Nice attention to detail. I especially like the slightly larger focus knobs. Beautiful images & really good all around scope. Enough aperture, yet still somewhat portable in weight.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great finish, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Summary: The scope is decent, some purple fringing but the image is sharp (moon viewing) Focus rack could use improvement, start with a better lube from the factory. The rack has a sticky lube that doesn't do much good. The CG-4 mount would be OK if it came lubed and adjusted properly.
Excerpt: This product was ordered online, and,as always with B&H, everything went smoothly with the scope arriving as promised. I was immediately impressed with the quality of the scope, eq. tripod, and eyepieces. Everything went together with no problems.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Excerpt: not a bad scope for the money, optics are nice, great views of dso's planets and moon. there is a little CA on brighter objects but i dont find it bothersome. the tripod and eq mount are pretty solid and smooth but this is my first refractor comming from a dob.I really like how portable this scope...
Pros: Accurate, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Quality Lenses, Strong Construction
Summary: Views of the moon and planets are excellent with this 120mm / 4.7-inch achromatic telescope and I can use 300x on a night when the seeing is good and steady. The XLT120 is capable of good deep sky work, especially double stars.
