A good zoom eyepiece should be a part of anyone's arsenal for general astronomical and terrestrial observing.  This Celestron 8-24mm is fully multicoated upon each air-to-glass surface for spiffy contrast at all zoom settings.  Like all zoom lenses, the apparent field of view will increase as you shorten its focal length and thus increase the effective magnification of your telescope/eyepiece combination, and at the shortest focal length of 8.0mm the field of view will surround your eye nicely.

Accepts 1.25" filters for astronomical & terrestrial applications
Focal Length 8.0-24.0mm
Eye Relief At least 15.0mm at all focal lengths
Apparent Field of View 40-60°
Dimensions 1.7 x 4.6" (44 x 118mm) WxH
Weight 0.51 lb (230 g)

      A great eyepiece for the beginer astronomer. Very clear, it is so much more convenient to not have to change eye piece to get a greater magnification.

      The parafocal isn't perfect. Expect to have to adjust focus when changing magnification.

      I have a Celestron 130SLT Newtonian telescope. These types of telescope are limited by a short back focus (how far from the eye piece the image can be focused). That makes it almost impossible to attach a SLR camera directly to them and get a clear focus.

      This zoomable eye piece increases the back focus and is threaded for T-ring mount installation. Only the adjusting ring pivots so the camera stays still.

      The piece zooms in smoothly but you are better off just sticking to the 24mm alone. All of the loss of light that occurs doesn't make a difference to zoom in. All of the features you can see at 8mm, you can see at 24mm with more clarity. Yes it's normal to lose light when you zoom in but maybe not this much light. I returned this item and bought a Meade 14mm plossl instead. I'll see if that one works better.

        Compared to more expensive zooms, it would probably have one less star. If you want to spend less than $, it is a very nice performing eyepiece and more than what I had expected. Good image quality and good contrast....well done Celestron!

          I love to use this EP to help center my alignment stars when aligning my Nexstar 8SE. It's much easier than switching out EP's to fine tune my alignment. It's also a great EP to add versatility to any EP collection.

              Great for beginner, do all EP. Give you a chance to see what powers you prefer. Great for basic viewing for one do it all EP. Zoom is a bit stiff but adapt quickly.

                  I used it with celestron C90 spotting scope. Very dark and fuzzy image. I had one look through this eyepiece and tossed it into a bin.

                  Overall this is a good eyepiece. I use it on all my telescopes. The angle of view is nice (even zoomed to 8mm). The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because the zoom function is a bit stiff. Still works fine but I would like to see it a little easier to turn.
                  I may even buy another one in case I have 2 scopes set up at once.

                      The good news - B&H delivered as promised and the eyepiece does work. I've used it only once and anything above about 15mm is useless due to a lens defect (like looking through a petroleum jelly covered lens). More good news - I only use it for target shooting at 300yards and therefore not greater than 12 mm. I'll taking shooting on a sunnier day to see if it makes a difference.
                      I will probably return it.

                      Been using it a couple nights now and am really pleased with the crisp clear images through most of the ranges. At 8-9mm, it is a little blurry but you can definitely still make out objects. Beyond that, everything is sharp and crisp.

                        For some reason Celestron chooses not to use standard thread sizing for its various scopes and eyepieces which makes it a great deal more difficult and sometimes impossible to attach a camera with a "standard" T-adapter.

                        The eyespieces may be all for a 1-1/2" tube for use with a Celestron but there are at least three different outside diameters used by Celestron, including the 1.5" OD of this eyepiece.

                        No one sells a T-adapter or ring for the threads of the 22x-60 eyepiece either. It may be available in China but not in the USA and that includes buying one from Celestron - I know I tried.

                            As good as my other eyepieces all put in one with only a slight touch of focus correction from one end to the other. Image is sharp and clear. I use it on my 8" Celestron and 10" Zhumell. I only wish the apparent view was wider at the 24mm end. Overall very nice optics.

                                I use it with my NexStar 6SE and the quality is great. You would expect to lose a lot of quality the more you zoom in, although it's true that you lose some quality, it's not enough to complain about because you can easily adjust it. I'm still new to using this and so far I am not disappointed. Best bang for the buck for any zoom eyepiece.

                                Plus, it's threaded which allows me to connect my DSLR which is a HUGE plus.

                                  I bought this eyepiece to use in a Celestron C90 Maksutov scope. The optics just weren't clear enough for me, so I returned it. B&H Photo promptly refunded my money. B&H Photo is a good company. I've discovered that fixed magnification eyepieces work better for my scope than variable power ones, unless of course I want to spend lots of money, which I don't.

                                    Good vision in general. Wide angle is very bright and zoom capacity is impressive and still bright. The focus not perfect but surprising for the price.

                                      I never had a Zoom eyepiece before but read some good reviews of this one so I though I would give it a try. At first I was concerned because on looking at terrestrial sights during bright daylight there was a strong kidney-bean effect, but at night when I started using it on the moon, stars and planets it proved to be a very useful eyepiece. The sharpness and contrast of the image was very good, and the convenience of not having to change eyepieces all the time was great!

                                      Comments about Celestron 8-24mm Zoom Wide Angle Eyepiece (1.25"):

                                      A great eyepiece for the beginer astronomer. Very clear, it is so much more convenient to not have to change eye piece to get a greater magnification.

                                      The parafocal isn't perfect. Expect to have to adjust focus when changing magnification.

                                      I have a Celestron 130SLT Newtonian telescope. These types of telescope are limited by a short back focus (how far from the eye piece the image can be focused). That makes it almost impossible to attach a SLR camera directly to them and get a clear focus.

                                      This zoomable eye piece increases the back focus and is threaded for T-ring mount installation. Only the adjusting ring pivots so the camera stays still.
