Celestron's X-Cel LX 18mm 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 18mm Eyepiece (1.25") is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp, wide field pleasant viewing 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great produuct for the money 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good lens for a moderate price I use this lens with a Meade ETX-90 telescope. The image quality is quite good, but not 100% clear in higher magnification (with a 2x Barlow). Housing is very well built and husky, with a nice rubberized coating for good grip. For the price, however, this is a good lens (a great step-up from the Meade Series 4000 Plssl lenses).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
