Item #  09021
Mfg Model #  21090

The Omni XLT 120 refractor features the stable platform of the Celestron CG-4 equatorial telescope mount and high quality refracting optics. Using aspheric shaping technology in conjunction with hand-figuring the optics, the Omni XLT 120 presents an image with virtually no spherical aberration. Celestron also added their popular, high-performance StarBright XLT coating system to further enhance light transmission. The 120mm, f/8.3 achromatic refractor is great for viewing brighter deep space objects like nebulas and galaxies. The Moon and planets also shine bright in this capable refractor telescope. Includes 25mm 1.25" eyepiece, 1.25" star diagonal, and "The Sky" Level 1 planetarium software with a 10,000 object database.

Does this model provide erect images like astro90EQ?
Yes, the Celestron Omni XLT 120 Refractor Telescope provides erect images.

Is the Equatorial Mount suitable for terrestrial viewing?
Yes. The equatorial mount has a good slew applied to its movement which makes it ideal for terrestrial viewing.

Which accessories are most useful or helpful to purchase with this scope? I would like to use it for both planetary and deep sky viewing.
The only thing that I could recommend right off the bat would be a nice eyepiece and filter kit. The different eyepieces would allow you to really investigate different star clusters and galaxies. The filter set would be great for looking at the moon or mars.
