Great telescope for the money
"...
This is the first telescope I have owned, although I have been seriously stargazing for about a year (with 15X70 Binocs).
Even from a VERY light polluted area (I live in the middle of a metro area with almost 2 million people), I am able to see a surprising number of deep sky objects.... See more

Close-Up of the Solar System
"...Weather-permitting, I use this everyday.
I have always been interested in astronomy and last Christmas, I received an entry level telescope.
Did not use that much because it is cold and snowy during winter here.... See more

Great Value
"...I'm still not sure what purpose the thumb screw for the right ascension setting circle next to the vernier scale serves. At any rate, we live in the suburbs of a 40k population city with mild light pollution, and yet I've been pleasantly surprised with the deep-sky objects I've been able to now find that were previously out of reach with the binocs...and I haven't gotten really particular about precise collimation yet.
Globular clusters are spectacular, the ring nebula resolves pretty well even though its toward my light pollution, and the sombrero galaxy is plainly visible, if not really crisp.
Saturn's rings have been a real hit, as have the cloud bands on Jupiter and close-ups of craters on the moon.... See more

Great Scope Omni XLT
"...Upgrading from binos to a XLT 150 reflector-WOW. The quality is great and my kids love to gaze at the night sky.
Saturn with it's rings and moons are viewable with detail on clear nights.

Awesome first telescope!
"...Easy to use and solidly constructed.
Makes a good telescope for someone like myself, who has not used telescopes before, but wants to make astronomy a lifelong hobby.

Omni 150XLT a Great Buy!
"...I wanted to be able to use it extensively before writing a review. It has quality optics and the included eyepiece is quality, at least until you catch the bug and want to buy more.
With this telescope, I can easily see the rings of Saturn and some of its brighter moons using the included 25mm eyepiece.
Using a barlow/eyepiece combination I can clearly make out the rings and many of its moons.... See more

Perfect Starter Scope
"...I got this scope immediately after returning an Astro-Master 114EQ. I wanted a starter scope but the Astro-Master 114EQ immediately seemed kind of junky out of the box.
I didn't know if i would get into astronomy so I didn't want to spend too much, but I decided to move up to the $500 level and get this OMNI XLT 150 Reflector.
The product was completely impressive out of the box - compared with the cheap starter scopes this setup was truly professional.... See more

could not be happier
"...This is my first "real" telescope and after using it for about a month I could not be happier . I have used it in all kinds of conditions in that time and have no complaints.
I have seen four planets and a few d.s.o.
with the included ep which brings me to my only word of advice , you will want to invest in additional eye pieces because with the exception of saturn all of the planets look like points of light.... See more

Good Scope
"...Solid telescope.
Good views of Jupiter and the Moon with the stock EP.
I even got to see the Ring Nebula, even though it was very faint.... See more

Neat, well designed and user-friendly

First-timer on astronomy, I bought this scope after reading tons of reviews and forums.
I am not disappointed!... See more

Best for your buck!
"...The construction was easy, you can tell how high quality everything is when putting it together. Everything fits so snug and seems very heavy duty.
[...] First night out I saw orions nebula, very beautiful and the sliver of moon was gorgous also.
Second night out I tried out the dual axis motors.... See more

Nice, but...
"...However, don't expect to see a whole lot with the included eyepiece. The scope has a 750mm focal length, so the included 25mm eyepiece will give you about 30x magnification.
Far too little to see any planets up close.
The moon looks spectacular, but I guess I expected to see more right out of the box.... See more

I'm a novice but did a lot of research before buying.
This scope is a real good deal.... See more

Solid choice
"...One of the most important things in finding a good scope is the quality/stability of the base. This scope delivers.
I was deligthed when I took it out of the box and felt the weight and was not disappointed when I set it up.
FOR THE PRICE POINT, I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of both the mount and the ease of set up and focus.... See more
