Celestron's X-Cel LX 18mm Eyepiece is designed for comfortable near and deep-space astronomical observation.

I am in the process of building up my library of eyepieces and have found that the cost of the X-Cell LX brand has suited my needs without breaking the bank. I would recommend these eyepieces for anyone on a budget. Moon looks awesome through this eyepiece. Celestron makes a good product.

Excellent!

There are many more expensive optics for Celestron scopes, but these X-Cel lenses are a bargain, nice clear viewing and solid build. No complaints!

A joy to use. I have now purchased the complete set of X-Cel LX eyepieces, and they are great. I am using them in preference to others. The 60 degree field is wide enough to comfortably take in at one view with good eye relief. Why go squinting into the corners of an 80 or 90 degree eyepiece which is a cumbersome blunderbuss that weighs a ton. This week I compared both my 25mm and 18mm X-Cel LX's with a standard 25mm 50 degree Plossl, looking at the trapezium in the Orion Nebula with my C14. The fifth and sixth stars stood out neatly and clearly with the X-Cel LX units, but the Plossl needed a bit of encouragement and movement of the eye to clearly pick them up.

Very good eyepiece

Ideal as an intermediate eyepiece. Solid construction, good field of view, clear images. It's the first time I buy a Celestron eyepiece and something that surprised me was the product presentation.

Great price/performance ratio

This eyepiece's quality is unprecedented for the price. The sky appears dark and DSOs are contrasty. It's definitely a step over traditional Plossl eyepieces. My only complaint is that there are too many blackouts and it's hard to get proper eye relief.

It is a Celestron
