The 17mm and 6mm Plossl eyepieces can be used in any telescope with a 1.25-inch focuser. These eyepieces feature a four-element design with a 52-degree apparent field-of-view. The lenses are fully multi-coated to improve light transmission and protect the optics. The 17mm Plossl eyepiece offers a nice medium magnification view in most telescopes, while the 6mm Plossl provides high magnifications, great for observing the Moon and planets when seeing conditions are good.
2x Barlow Lens/T-Adapter
The included versatile 2x Barlow lens will double the magnification of any 1.25-inch eyepiece. This means that the 17mm Plossl included in this kit will effectively become an 8.5mm eyepiece, and the 6mm will provide the magnification of a 3mm. You can also use any other 1.25-inch eyepieces you already have with this Barlow lens, giving you even more magnification choices. Keep in mind that high magnifications may not always produce clear, sharp results, especially on evenings with poor or moderate seeing conditions.
Colored filters can bring out certain details on a planet’s surface or its cloud structure. Both the 80A Blue Filter, the 25 Red Filter, and the Moon Filter can be used on any 1.25-inch eyepiece with the proper filter threads. Simply screw one onto your eyepiece of choice and slide it into the focuser. The Moon filter is one of the first accessories most new amateur astronomers buy because it helps block out a portion of the light the Moon sends into your eyepiece, allowing you to see details better.
The Celestron Observer’s Accessory Kit is a must-have for any telescope owner. With high-quality eyepieces, a Barlow lens, filters, and a cleaning cloth, you can enhance the performance of your telescope and see more detail in the night sky. The included carry case keeps everything safe and organized, making it easy to take your accessories with you on your stargazing adventures. Expand your horizons and explore the wonders of the universe with the Celestron Observer’s Accessory Kit.
