Celestron's X-Cel LX 12mm 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Optics at an Excellent Price I had to think for awhile before giving 4 stars, I almost gave 5. I was using a pair of $ NIKON HW EPs in my binoviewer at a recent public event. The contamination of the eyelens from sweat and tears was just too much for me to think about repeating. I needed something with more eye relief and less expense when dealing with the general public. These eyepieces give about 75% of the performance of my Nikons at less than 10% of the price. You have to search for differences to find them and the views are really good even when price is not considered. I'm surprised Celestron can produce and sell these at the price that B&H sells them for. Excellent light throughput, good correction, nice field of view and excellent eye relief. If you're looking for an inexpensive eyepiece that will give detailed and comfortable views of stars, planets, the moon, clusters and galaxies, you won't go wrong with this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy Not knowing what to expect with my first view,i have to say i am very happy with this purchase. Compared to my currect occulars, i get a much improved image size with nice detail,contrast and colour. I am 50+, so for my eyes and age i am most happy,the plus being that i want to go outside more often to enjoy the satisfaction i get from viewing the heaven's.. Bigger than what i expected,quality is very nice and for me,i can find nothing wrong,hence 5 stars. I know there are more expensive and higher quality occulars available,but this one and the price,for me is 5 stars. As always,good pricing and service from B&H

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Quality EP I love the build quality of this EP. The rubberized coating makes it easy to handle and secure in the hand. I really like the twist up eye cup too. Contrast is great and objects are razor sharp. This is a super eyepiece. Most new telescopes come with a couple bottom shelf eyepieces. Your first upgrade should be a few of these X-Cel eyepieces. Do not waste your money on the EP kits out there. I did and with the exception of the 32mm, mine are junk. Just buy three or four of these and a good barlow. That's all you need to get excellent views, plus you get something that's built to last a lifetime.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp, good value Very nice eyepiece at a very good price. Sharper than the 12mm omni xlt plossi, with a much more comfortable eye relief and a much more immersive, wider view. Rotating eye cup is comfortable with plenty of range. A relatively inexpensive way to get a good step up from the standard plossi -which is reasonably good, but this is better and worth the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Great This eyepiece will not be a disappointment. It is just like the others in the set. Absolutely fantastic. Sure, you can buy much more expensive eyepieces and flash the fancy names around, but these cannot be beat for the money and may surprise you if you compare to a higher priced one of the same FL. and FOV. As I believe they all will.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Celestron LX 12 mm The 12 mm eyepiece was the only empty space in my repertory. In combination with a 2.5 X barlow and with other eyepieces (40 and 20 mm), I have a great variety of power. The Celestron LX 12 mm is a great value. Robust, a wide field of view, rubber eyecup, multicoated and a grear price

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very worth buying. This is a really good eyepiece. My view of Jupiter and a half full moon were wow. The adjustable eye relief feature is very helpful. I'm looking to buy another focal length to fill out my collection.
