  • Celestron Observers Accessory Kit (1.25")

    Celestron put together this 1.25" Observers Accessory Kit to give users the essentials for observation and astro-imaging. This kit includes two Plossl eyepieces that yield high and low magnifications on any given telescope, two planetary color filters, and a neutral density Moon filter. This kit also includes a multi-function accessory that combines a 2x Barlow lens with a T-adapter which will not only double the magnification of any eyepiece used in it, but also allows a camera-specific T-ring to easily thread onto it to for astrophotography with a DSLR. An included plastic carrying case holds all of the kit's optical accessories with room for more.

    • 1.25" barrel diameter
    • Four-element lens design
    • 52° apparent angle of view
    • Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics improve light transmission, color rendition, and contrast
    • 17mm focal length produces a medium magnification view in most telescopes
    • 6mm focal length produces high magnifications - ideal for the Moon and planets
    Eyepiece Filters
      #80A Medium-Blue:
    • Enhances the contrast of the cloud belts on Jupiter and the polar ice caps on Saturn
    • Increases contrast on the Moon
      #25 Deep Red:
    • Helps to define the polar ice caps on Mars
    • Useful when observing Jupiter
      ND Moon:
    • Helps block out a portion of the Moon's light to increase contrast, allowing users to see details better
    • Use when observing Venus to reduce glare so that the planet's phases can more easily be seen
    Combo Accessory
    • 2x Barlow: Doubles the magnification of any 1.25" eyepiece
    • T-threads allow a camera to be mounted when used with an optional T-ring
