        Comments about Celestron X-Cel LX 12mm Eyepiece (1.25"):

        Not knowing what to expect with my first view,i have to say i am very happy with this purchase.

        Compared to my currect occulars, i get a much improved image size with nice detail,contrast and colour.

        I am 50+, so for my eyes and age i am most happy,the plus being that i want to go outside more often to enjoy the satisfaction i get from viewing the heaven's..

        Bigger than what i expected,quality is very nice and for me,i can find nothing wrong,hence 5 stars.

        I know there are more expensive and higher quality occulars available,but this one and the price,for me is 5 stars.

        As always,good pricing and service from B&H
