    Default Celestron Omni XLT 102



    I recently saw one of these on craigslist. It's going for 200. The main purpose of the buy would be to get into AP a bit "cheaper". I would still have to buy motors and a camera, but my question is is this a good enough deal to be worth it?

    I don't need to get into AP RIGHT now, I probably won't for some time, but I don't want to pass up a great deal.

    Any thoughts?

    Sounds like a great deal if it's in good condition. I received mine, brand new, a few days ago - I paid list price and I still think I got a great deal. It seems like an awful lot of scope and mount for the money. Comes with a camera attachment on the mounting rings, everything on the focuser end is threaded, and the various bits and pieces you'd need are easy to get hold of.

    I'll be getting the motors too, pretty soon I think. If I could get another one for $200, I'd bite their hand off and have a monster pair of binoculars!
