1.25” Eyepiece and Filter Kit
- Product Review (submitted on February 4, 2012):
This set is an update of the set I bought in 2003, the only difference being the focal length selection (and in fact I feel this set offers better focal lengths than the original set).
This is an excellent set for beginners because it gives you everything you need - a variety of focal lengths covering the spectrum of low, medium & high power magnifications, a simple 2x Barlow lens that doubles each magnification and a set of high quality color filters that enhance planetary features.
If you own a 6" or smaller aperture telescope, these eyepieces are the only ones you'll ever need (high dollar eyepieces in small scopes won't change what you can see). If your scope's aperture is 8" or larger, you'll eventually want to upgrade to higher quality eyepieces.
The Celestron 1.25" Eyepiece & Filter Set offers a durable metal case, several economical but serviceable oculars, great variety, high quality colored filters and all at an unbeatable value.
