Celestron's X-Cel LX 5mm Eyepiece is designed for comfortable near and deep-space astronomical observation. It is built with a 6-element lens configuration, blackened edges, and anti-reflective fully multi-coated optical surfaces to ensure bright and clear high-contrast images with true color transmission across the entire wide 60° field of view. Celestron engineered the X-Cel LX series of eyepieces with a long 16mm eye relief that brings the user's face back from the scope to minimize vibrations caused by contact with the eyepiece. All eyepieces in the series are completely parfocal, making switching eyepieces convenient by not requiring re-focusing. With a 1.25" diameter barrel, it will fit the most common size drawtubes, visual backs, and accessories; and a rubberized collar provides a non-slip grip especially in cold weather and when wearing gloves. The housing is made of a lightweight and durable aluminum alloy with a reflection-limiting matte anodized finish, and a retractable eyecup that extends with a simple twist for comfortable use with or without eyewear.

    X-Cel LX 5mm Eyepiece (1.25") is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good eyepiece makes all the difference! I purchased an entry level telescope and was disappointed by the planetary views I was getting with the eyepieces that came with the telescope. I wrote B&H and asked whether I should purchase a Barlow lens or a better eyepiece. B&H recommended I buy a better eyepiece (and specifically recommended the Celestron X-Cel LX 5mm). Two nights after it arrived I had the rings of Saturn in clear view.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value and performance eyepiece I use this eyepiece with 10 Dob, 6 SCT and 6 Refractor. Gives good views to edge of field w/acceptable eye relief. Great value for the money. A little sensitive to eye placement and some may experience blackout. Very easy to live with within its limitations. Do not expect this to perform like a high dollar eyepiece.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big and heavy Nice eyepiece. Good FOV. Crisp image. Good color. It is quite large and heavy. 20mm eye relief is best attribute. Takes time to come to thermal balance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice 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.
