        Ideal as an intermediate eyepiece. Solid construction, good field of view, clear images. It's the first time I buy a Celestron eyepiece and something that surprised me was the product presentation.

        Comments about Celestron X-Cel LX 18mm Eyepiece (1.25"):

        This eyepiece's quality is unprecedented for the price. The sky appears dark and DSOs are contrasty. It's definitely a step over traditional Plossl eyepieces. My only complaint is that there are too many blackouts and it's hard to get proper eye relief.

        Comments about Celestron X-Cel LX 18mm Eyepiece (1.25"):

        I use this lens with a Meade ETX-90 telescope. The image quality is quite good, but not 100% clear in higher magnification (with a 2x Barlow). Housing is very well built and husky, with a nice rubberized coating for good grip. For the price, however, this is a good lens (a great step-up from the Meade Series 4000 Plössl lenses).
