      Cannot really tell if the eyepiece is exceptional as I used it on a low cost telescope.

        Comments about Celestron X-Cel LX 9mm Eyepiece (1.25"):

        I've been using this eyepiece to view Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Earth's Moon and some terrestrial objects. I haven't had an opportunity to get out of the city to see any deep space objects yet. With the telescope I'm using (Celestron NexStar 5SE) I'm getting 139x magnification.

        Mars is just a red dot but Saturn and Jupiter are big enough anywhere in the field of view to show some of their moons, details in the clouds and Saturn's rings. The Cassini division is obvious even at this medium magnification.

        Earth's Moon is spectacularly clear with good detail of craters and mare. Be sure to use a filter so it's not so bright.

        I like the 60° field of view, twist up eyecup, long eye relief and the fact that it is easy to handle. And it just fits with the thumb screws on my stock 90° Star Diagonal.

        When my eye gets too close to the lens, without the twist up eye cup up (that's fun to say) I do experience the "blackout" or "kidney beaning" that I've read about from other reviewers. But the eye cup can be adjusted to where I like it to keep that from happening.

        I did experience some ghosting of light when viewing the edge of the Moon, but I think that was because of the variable polarizing filter I was using and not the eyepiece. When the moon filled most of the field of view the ghosting was not present.

        Not having experience with more expensive eyepieces I am extremely happy with this eyepiece.

        Buy one today! :)

            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.

              Better eye relief than expected. The caps are too tight and damage the rubber when removed. A better case would have been nice.

                I don't have very deep experience with eyepieces. All I have used are 25mm Orion Sirius Plossl and some other very cheap EPs. However, this one is way better than what I have used. It feels very solid and made of quality material. Its AFOV is really large. Compared to 25 mm EP, this 9mm has lower contrast but this is expected. It is very sharp and bright. I think it is worth the price.

                  I like this one on my Skyscope 90mm.I got this occular to go with it and Jupiter,Saturn,M42 are just really nice.I use a celestron barlow with it.

                  The moon is incredible.

                  Being such a wide view,i get more time watching till i have to move the scope,less colour fringing,great contrast and black background and colour.Pretty sharp for my old eyes as well..

                  I am very very happy with this purchase.
