See things your way with the Celestron X-Cel additional eyepiece. This great six-element 5mm focal length lens with a 60 degree apparent field of view is ideal for viewing the sky. Fully multi-coated lenses mean you’ll get a great view of whatever you turn your sights to with clear shape images. The edge of the optics is blackened to give an increased contrast for the image. The eyepiece has an eye relief of 16mm, meaning that your eye can be up to 16mm from the eyepiece and still see the complete picture. The X-Cel range of eyepieces are all parfocal so you can switch between eyepieces with little to no additional focusing with your telescope. How easy is the eyepiece to attach to my telescope?
Made of black-anodised aluminium, the Celestron 5mm X-Cel eyepiece is compatible with all Celestron telescopes. A black rubber grip makes this eyepiece easy to attach, even when wearing gloves. The barrel is threaded for you to attach moon or colour filters and has eyecups that can be used to cup you eye or folded back flat which can be better for glasses wearers.
The X-Cel eyepieces are also available in 7mm
, and a barlow lens (x2)
