This optical scheme has been realized with spherical mirrors, on the optical path there isn't any other lenses, except the front corrector plate. Despite its compact size and light weight, the focal length is long, ideal for high resolution imaging. The images are very sharp and contrasty, the Starbright coatings ensures an optimum brightness even with faint objects.

The Celestron XLT for deep-sky imaging

IIt's the ideal telescope for planetary imaging even in high resolution. Thanks to the optional focal reducer, its focal length can be reduced to f/6.3 making it very good also for deep-sky astrophotography. This optic it's also Fastar compatible, which allows the user to further reduce the focal length to f / 2 (for photographic use only), so you can take pictures with very short exposure times, and in some cases autoguiding is not required. The field is completely flat and well illuminated from the center of the mirror up to the edges, even the stars appear geometrically and chromatically corrected thanks especially to corrector plate.
