  1. The 1.25" is the only adapter Happy-Kat. And yes the scope is the Celestron Omni XLT150 Barry. Michael8554 - It seems like it is as heavy as the XLT150....Thanks All!
  2. What would be the best method or tools to use for proper commulation? I want eveything to be in line. Thanks!
  3. I have not done commulation on my scope. (Another thing to learn). Yes these planets are low in the sky and now that you mention that, we more than likly have smoke from the California fires distorting things a bit. I have not been out in the evenings much yet to play with the scope. Mostly early mornings. The lenses that I have used are from 32mm down to 6mm with varialtions inbetween with and without the barlow lens. Thanks for the Help!!!!
  4. Hello All, I have a Clestron Omni XLT 150. Looking at Jupiter, Mars and Saturn is am experimenting with diffrent lenes. I have used the Barlow X2 with diffrent lens configurations for viewing from the 32mm to the 6mm. I know that the Barlow will effectivly take the 32 to 16 etc. My problem is that nothing comes in clear. Really fuzzy. I can see colors from the planets, but with no clarity......What am I doing wrong? Thanks!
  5. Hello, My name is Mike and I just purchased a scope. I live in the Mtns of Colorado and amazing enough, we have virtually no light pollution at our home. Stars are amazing! Totally new to the scope and would like to know alot more from those with experience. Thanks in advance! Celestron 31057 Omni XLT - 150
