Celestron 93230 overview

  • 1Description

With Celestron's 8-24mm Zoom Eyepiece you can quickly and easily go from a low magnification to high-power with a simple twist instead of taking valuable observation time to change eyepieces and filters. At the low magnification setting of 24mm its wide 60° field of view allows you to easily find your subjects or enjoy expansive views, and when dialed up to the high setting of 8mm the angle of view is still an impressive 40-degrees. Anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics ensure bright and clear high-images at any magnification, with true color rendition. The eyepiece is designed to fit any 1.25" diameter drawtube or accessory, and its slip-resistant textured collar ensures safe handling - especially in the cold or when wearing gloves - and allows for precise focal length selection. Finally, a fold-down eyecup makes for comfortable viewing with or without eyewear.

    Celestron 93230 reviews

    8-24mm Zoom Eyepiece (1.25") is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 58.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal with Reflector Telescope A great eyepiece for the beginer astronomer. Very clear, it is so much more convenient to not have to change eye piece to get a greater magnification. The parafocal isn't perfect. Expect to have to adjust focus when changing magnification. I have a Celestron 130SLT Newtonian telescope. These types of telescope are limited by a short back focus (how far from the eye piece the image can be focused). That makes it almost impossible to attach a SLR camera directly to them and get a clear focus. This zoomable eye piece increases the back focus and is threaded for T-ring mount installation. Only the adjusting ring pivots so the camera stays still.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product and excellent value Positives Great Price! Very useful magnification range Smooth motions and easy to use Clear contrasty images Great field width at higher magnification Good eye relief Not heavy or bulky Comes in a nice plastic case Negatives Need to refocus slightly when zooming Low magnification field is a little narrow Comments The zoom eyepiece is very convenient...look at the Moon and zoom in on areas of interest, look at Jupiter and the placement of the moons and then zoom in on the planet...same for double stars. Easily find the best magnification to appreciate the double.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful eyepiece for the price The biggest issue I have with separate eyepieces is that I need to find the object with a 25mm eyepiece first, then switch to a 8mm or 15mm for closer viewing. Every time I did that, I need to refocus and often lost the object from view if the telescope moved slightly when switching eyepieces. This zoom eyepiece has good eye relief (I wear eyeglasses), doesn't require refocus when zoom in or out, and allows me to quicking find a object on 24mm and see it close up at 8mm within seconds. I highly recommend getting this Celestron zoom eyepiece instead of the cheap eyepiece set, especially if you don't have a GOTO telescope.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent starter eyepiece It's a great starter eyepiece and is essentially 5 eyepieces in one. love being able to zoom without having to swap eyepieces and fumble in the dark. A more seasoned star gazer may argue about more high end eye pieces and different mm's and glass quality etc... but this is a very highly reviewed product even by seasoned gazers. And if you are like me and an amateur occasional star gazer, this will fill your needs and be an excellent starter eyepiece.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from No way to adapt for use with camera For some reason Celestron chooses not to use standard thread sizing for its various scopes and eyepieces which makes it a great deal more difficult and sometimes impossible to attach a camera with a standard T-adapter. The eyespieces may be all for a 1-1/2 tube for use with a Celestron but there are at least three different outside diameters used by Celestron, including the 1.5 OD of this eyepiece. No one sells a T-adapter or ring for the threads of the 22x-60 eyepiece either. It may be available in China but not in the USA and that includes buying one from Celestron - I know I tried.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from good buy in an inexpensive zoom eyepiece I use this with a Celestron C90 (the current model #52268) Maksutov-Cassegrain spotting scope, a 90mm aperture, 1250mm focal length telescope. I bought the scope to do double duty as a spotting scope and astronomical telescope. I bought this eyepiece for terrestrial use and to fill-in while I collect prime eyepieces for astronomy on the used market. We've had cloudy nights and I haven't used it much yet but it appears it will work fine for my purposes. That said, I don't expect miracles from a zoom eyepiece. Pros: 1) Comes with a nice screw-top eyepiece case. 2) Nice feature that's only documented deep in the support forums at Celestron's web site: this eyepiece has T-threads under the rubber eyecup so you can attach a camera to it for eyepiece projection photography with only a T-adapter. 3) Better optical quality than you'd expect if, like me, you consider most zoom lenses to be abominations. The nice thing about pessimism is that sometimes you're pleasantly surprised. Cons: 1) I've noticed kidney-bean blackouts at some powers. 2) Eye relief varies with focal length too, so it takes some effort to keep your eye on axis and at the appropriate distance. This may be a general downside to zoom eyepieces, I don't know. 3) The build quality is only fair. It turns more loose than smooth and the mating seam between the barrel halves shows poor fit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Zoom Eyepiece for the price I never had a Zoom eyepiece before but read some good reviews of this one so I though I would give it a try. At first I was concerned because on looking at terrestrial sights during bright daylight there was a strong kidney-bean effect, but at night when I started using it on the moon, stars and planets it proved to be a very useful eyepiece. The sharpness and contrast of the image was very good, and the convenience of not having to change eyepieces all the time was great!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Celestron Zoom Eyepiece Compared to more expensive zooms, it would probably have one less star. If you want to spend less than $, it is a very nice performing eyepiece and more than what I had expected. Good image quality and good contrast....well done Celestron!
