Home Eyepieces Celestron Eyepieces Celestron X-Cel LX Series Eyepieces Celestron 5mm X-Cel LX eyepiece
A high power eyepiece for planetary and lunar observation. The enhanced X-Cel LX eyepiece series is what you've been waiting for in a high quality eyepiece for planetary 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
Bought for astromaster 130eq Bigger than expected, but the difference between this and the one that came with my telescope is superb. Good view and opens up a new view of the sky. Downside is it might be too powerful for scope, as things do get a bit out of focus occasionally if go for distant objects. (06/06/2020) -
Solid, well built eyepiece with good visuals Hard to choose an eyepiece with all the options available on the market but this was in my price range, from a reputable manufacturer and looked good. My first impression was how big it is for a 5mm focal length, which is great as it offers great, wide views and really feels solid. Very pleased. (29/04/2020) Andrew - Suffolk
