It is great during good seeing conditions. I have not had very good conditions this winter, but enough to say this is a nice eyepiece. It will get a lot of use when the weather changes.

Well worth the money.

This is great for magnification of the stars. I use this in addition to the Celestron 8-24mm Zoom Eyepiece (1.25) #93230. This has fantastic eye relief and kids can view the stars with ease. Solidly constructed and easy to use.

Great Eyepiece!

I recently purchased a Celestron Starsense Explorer DX 130AZ telescope and although the 25mm and 10mm eyepieces that came with the telescope were okay, I decided to use the 25mm and upgrade the higher power with the 9mm X-Cel LX with a wider field of view and six-element lens system. It was obvious the first time I used this new eyepiece the quality and view was so much better. I also purchased the 5mm X-Cel LX for those closer views.

Feels and looks great

This is one of my first oculars but its is great. The adjustable eye rest is perfect to tune to the eye relief. The grip hold well when moving it so you don't feel like you're going to drop it. The only complaint i have is that it is fairly large, but not in comparison to comparable quality lenses, just in general.

question

Can it fit on a celestron astromaster 114eq?
Asked by: Anonymous
The X-Cel eyepiece range are good quality, reasonably priced, quite wide field eyepieces (60 degree field), and are parfocal or very close to it. In other words they can be changed without having to refocus. I own a whole set.The 5mm will give you 200 magnification with your telescope, a practical maximum for the moon, bright planets, and double stars. The eyepiece has a standard 1.25 fitting and will fit your telescope and there should be no problem in achieving focus. There is good eye relief, so you don't have to jam your eye up against it to get a good field of view. However all this comes at a cost and it is a little bulkier.I would recommend it as your high magnification, but don't overlook a reasonable mid and low magnification eyepieces to complete your set.... and you can always take them with you if/when you upgrade.The fact that the eyepiece is a little
