Home Eyepieces Celestron Eyepieces Celestron X-Cel LX Series Eyepieces Celestron 12mm X-Cel LX eyepiece
This 12mm version provides an ideal medium power in most telescopes. The enhanced X-Cel LX eyepiece series is what you've been waiting for in a high quality eyepiece for astronomical viewing. With a brand new sleek and robust design and a twist-up eye guard, these eyepieces are especially designed for comfort and ease of use. They also have a wide field of view of 60° and 6-element fully multi-coated optics for magnificent wide field performance. X-Cel LX eyepieces are parfocal and require little to no focusing when changing from low to high power.
Celestron X-Cel LX series eyepieces offer a 60º apparent field of view, perfect for the Moon, the planets, and a plethora of deep-sky objects. The premium six-element optical set is finished with multiple layers of high-transmission coatings for clear, sharp images. The edges of the optics are blackened for increased contrast. All seven X-Cel LX eyepieces sport 16 mm of comfortable eye relief, and are parfocal, which means you can switch out eyepieces within the series during observing sessions and little or no additional focusing will be required. The X-Cel LX eyepiece body is made of black-anodized aluminum. The pop-up eyecups make it easy to adjust the height for different users. Turn them in one direction to extend the length, and the other direction to provide a flat surface, preferable to most eyeglass wearers. A treaded rubber grip around the center of the eyepiece barrel offers secure handling, even in moist conditions or with heavy gloves on. The 1.25 insert barrel is threaded to accept filters. The Celestron X-Cel LX Series includes the following focal lengths in a 1.25 format: Available in 2.3mm, 5 mm, 7 mm, 9 mm, 12 mm, 18 mm, 25 mm
