Celestron X-Cel LX 5mm Eyepiece - 1.25”
The Celestron X-CEL LX 5mm Eyepiece offers a high magnification for any telescope with a 1.25” barrel. As with all the eyepieces in the X-Cel LX series, the eyepiece offers an apparent field of view of 60º, which is ideal for viewing such phenomena as the Moon and other planets.
The X-Cel LX eyepiece is constructed out of six premium optics elements, finished with multiple layers of high-transmission coatings. The edges of the optics are blackened also, for increased contrast. The result is clear, bright and sharp images.
All seven X-Cel XL eyepieces are parfocal, holding their place of focus no matter the focal length. This means that different eyepieces can be switched out during observation with little to no additional focusing required.
