            Comments about Celestron X-Cel LX 5mm Eyepiece (1.25"):

            I use this eyepiece with 10" Dob, 6" SCT and 6" Refractor. Gives good views to edge of field w/acceptable eye relief. Great value for the money. A little sensitive to eye placement and some may experience blackout. Very easy to live with within its limitations. Do not expect this to perform like a high dollar eyepiece.

            Comments about Celestron X-Cel LX 5mm Eyepiece (1.25"):

            Nice eyepiece. Good FOV. Crisp image. Good color. It is quite large and heavy. 20mm eye relief is best attribute. Takes time to come to thermal balance.
