The 1.25" AstroMaster Accessory Kit from Celestron features a selection of useful additions to your kit that will enhance your observational experiences. The two eyepieces produce medium and high magnifications in most telescopes, and the Barlow lens doubles the magnification of any eyepiece used with it - essentially doubling your inventory of eyepieces. Two of the most popular colored planetary filters, Red and Blue, can be used to enhance and highlight specific areas on Jupiter, Saturn, Mars, Mercury, Venus, and Saturn, as well as comets. For safe viewing of our closest celestial object, a Moon filter is also included with reduces glare and enhances contrast on the surface. To hold all these accessories is a hard plastic case with a custom-cut foam lining.

Eyepieces
  • 1.25" diameter barrels
  • Anti-reflection fully multi-coated to improve light transmission, color rendition, contrast and sharpness
  • 15mm Kellner offers a medium magnification potential on most OTAs
  • 6mm Plossl produces high-magnification
Barlow Lens
  • 1.25" diameter barrel and eyepiece holder
  • 2x magnification doubles the magnification of any eyepiece used
  • Increases magnification while preserving eyepiece's native eye relief for easier viewing at high magnifications
  • Built-in T-thread accepts optional camera-specific T-ring for high-magnification astrophotography/imaging
Filters
  • Tinted glass lenses ensure longevity
  • Anti-reflection coated to prevent glaring and ghosting
  • 1.25" diameter to fit most standard 1.25" eyepieces
  • Threads allow filter stacking
    #80A Blue:
  • Light blue with 30% transmittance
  • Most popular for the study of detail on Jupiter and Saturn
  • Enhances the contrast on Jupiter's cloud belts
  • Enhances details of the Great Red Spot
  • Brings out detail in Saturn's belts and polar features
  • Improves observation of Mercury's dusky surface markings at twilight, when it is near the horizon
  • Useful for increasing the contrast of dark shadings in upper Venusian clouds
  • Brings out the best definition in comet gas tails
  • Also very useful for lunar observing
    #25 Red:
  • Blocks the transmission of blue and green wavelengths
  • Sharply defines the contrast between the cloud formations and the lighter-toned surface features on Jupiter
  • Useful for definition of the Martian polar ice caps and maria, and sharpens the boundaries of yellow dust clouds
  • Improves observation of Mercury at twilight, when the planet is near the horizon; reduces the brightness of the blue sky to enhance surface features when viewing during the day
  • Useful for studying bluer clouds on Saturn
  • Use during daylight observations of Venus to reduce brightness of blue sky; can make deformations of the terminator visible
    Moon:
  • 21mm clear aperture
  • 18% transmittance reduces glare to bring out more surface detail and improve contrast
  • Makes viewing the Moon safe when at or near full phase
  • Also useful to bring out surface details on Venus

    AstroMaster Accessory Kit (1.25") is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from really not worth the money Overall I was more dissappointed with the product than I was happy with it. I've found the lenses are not very good quality. The barlow just makes the images much darker and doesn't seem to allow you to focus on the object as good as you can without it. The 15 mm lense is good but the 6mm again makes everything very dark and is almost unusable. I wouldn't buy this again. As I am in Ireland I couldnt be bothered sending it back so I'll hang on to it, see what I can salvage. There are other barlow's and low mm eyepieces I would like to try before buying anything further.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent kit! I purchased this kit to give my Astromaster 130eq some more accessories. First off, the filters. The moon filter I have found quite useful at highly lit periods of the moon's phases, and it turns the entire image green. The other filters are red and blue, I haven't used them very much. The 15 mm lens is very nice, because it is super wide angled and can be a very great spotting eyepiece. The 6 mm plssl lens is very great, it reduces light level and makes a highly zoomed picture. All the eyepieces included have a little piece that flips up to block out light which is very convenient for urban viewing. The 2x Barlow doubles the picture, and helps get the scope close to its highest magnification. The final accessories are the cloth and box. I was quite happy that the box wasn't the plastic paper thin kind, and it has good foam on the inside to protect the lenses from damage. Overall, great kit and comes with a nice little box and is pretty much universal for all 1.25 apertures.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What I Wanted This is a great kit at a great price with the 2x Barlow, 6mm and blue filter I can see the belts on Jupiter my telescope is a 3.9 aperture reflector. Looking straight up or close to it in the sky gives the best viewing this is a helpful tip lower in the east or west I couldn't see the belts. I compared several kits for several weeks before choosing this one. I can view the moon with the 6mm with good detail and the filter is much easier on the eyes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kit for PowerSeeker Actually i bought this kit for my PowerSeeker 127EQ and it works great. This is why i bought this kit. Pros: - Comes with a 2x barlow(my telescope comes with 3x barlow, so now i have 2x and 3x barlows) - Barlow has T-threads(so no need to buy a seperate T-adapter for DSLR) - Removable lens in barlow(so it can works as a normal T-adapter or a 2x T-adapter) - 2 extra lenses + filters I can't say no to this kit with this price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Kit for a great price I ordered this kit to compliment my 5 reflector and to have a 2x Barlow lens in my collection. Both eyepieces work great and the Barlow is exactly what I needed. The moon filter works great when viewing a full moon and really brings the detail out especially at the Terminator. The blue lens helps me to see Jupiter's bands when at high magnification. Plus I got B&H's fast shipping and knowing it's from a reputable company.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good accessory I bought this for the Celestron Travel Scope 70 and the 15mm Kellner and moon filter have given good results, when viewing the moon. The 6mm Plossl seems cloudy and I think it could be the cement used to bond the compound lenses together. The 2x Barlow has T mount threads for attaching your DSLR with adapter. Not the highest quality accessories but suitable for the scope I bought them for.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must for any telescope. I love the Barlo lense, it allows me to double the power of any eyepiece. The filters are a great asset especially looking at the moon. I recommend. I did notice that the quality of the object lessens the closer you get but that is to be expected. Plus, the price was the best on the internet. Win-Win.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value. Good kit. I'm using the kit to enhance my assortment of eye pieces since my telescope only came with two. The barlow lens is a great piece, like having four eyepieces in the kit. I like the 16mm eyepiece due the wide angle view.
