I was looking for a good quality eyepiece kit to go with my new 10" Dob. This is a good one, however; the higher power eyepieces don't work well with a Dobsonian mount because of the narrower field of view. This is no fault of the eyepiece.

Well out of the box everything looked all together. Everything in it's place. Made sure nothing was broken ect. ect. Everything was cool. Did notice the similarities between my Zhumell stock 9mm and the Celestron 9mm from the kit. Identical. You tell me. but lets move on. It comes with a lot of stuff you're gonna use, at least to get you started. The 32mm is great for wider FOV's and galaxies like M31. The 15mm is great for just observing as well is the 9mm. The 6mm and 4mm are more for Testing the limits of your scope. I actually use them to dial in my finder when I'm shooting pics. Works really well. The filters do what they do. Enhance colors to see detail, but the moon filter I feel isn't dark enough. All in All im pleased. The case is sturdy the ep's are sturdy and I don't have to worry about anything. Also the barlow does it's job very well. In the end this is definitely a beginner ep set if you just want to fill in some ep slots.

    Comments about Celestron Telescope Eyepiece and Filter Kit - 1.25 Inch Format:

    I got this set of lenses along with an astromaster 114 to begin getting into astronomy, with no prior experience with telescopes. This set fits in perfectly!

    The lenses provide a great range of lower powered magnifications, as well as a couple high powered ones. As it is a beginner scope, the higher magnifications are less useful and I spend much of my time with the lower ones, so this is actually really good.

    The sizes don't clash with the 10mm and 20mm lenses that came with the scope. Even the barlow plus the 20mm lens has it's use, because my 10mm is erect image, giving two powers for terrestrial viewing.

    The eyepieces all have a thin eye relief that can be easily rolled back so I can keep my glasses on, or take pictures.

    The 32mm has been giving me really great views of the whole moon at once and feels like the field of view is much bigger than the others, even though it says it's actually less.

    The barlow lens is a great piece that is a must for any set of eyepieces. It gives you extra options at little cost. That alone is worth it.

    The filters seem great so far, but I've only ventured far enough to try the grey on the moon and Venus. The bright colors scare me..... I will try them soon, but I'm not quite sure what they can be used for. A small, laminated insert showing suggested uses would be a great addition! Please think of adding it!

    It also seems to come with done computer software. Mine is currently on the fritz, so I cannot use it. But, if it's anything like the rest of the set, I'm sure it's of excellent quality and very useful to a beginner like me!

    The very best part that it is of a common size. There are many telescopes available that use 1.25 inch eyepieces. So, when it comes time to upgrade to a more powerful telescope, you can bring these along. I've already scoped out my next upgrade and these fit it just fine!

        Comments about Celestron Telescope Eyepiece and Filter Kit - 1.25 Inch Format:

        Shipment was excellent, arrived two days earlier. On New Years Eve which was a very clear, cold evening. Friday was to be cloudy, and it was. A great way to begin the new year.
        17 years ago I purchased Observer 70mm, four years after that, life took a turn and she became a dust collector, until Christmas Eve. Cleaned her up and looked like new. Remembered the spark I used to have, and went to the internet. It was good luck after two other sites I found you. Wow things changed in those years. What I purchased back then today I can get an 100mm. So my spark became a flame again. And I received some x-mas $. Since I only was able to purchased a moon filter with the 70mm. The Celestron Eyepiece and Filter Kit was in my price range. What a wonderful upgrade, I tried to price piece by piece it was futile.
        It was nine degrees at five pm when I put the 70 outside. At around six I looked at the moon, she was bright, but didn't glare too much, was it because of the temperature and still low in the sky? I don't know but I was able to use all the eyepieces, except the six, even with the moon filter. Buy the time the moon was at zenith she lit up the sky. but Jupiter was nice to look at. All in all it was a night to remember. From six pm to two thirty am I was out at least five hours and had a wonderful New Years Eve. I reside in North Idaho where homesteads are one per five acre increments. So being out of town my telescope was ten feet from my front door. One 40 watt red lamp was on inside, that and the glow from the wood stove was all the light, besides the red flash light. Frost engulfed the glossy black finish, the optics were superb throughout the session. Amazed of all the options. Even all the faint light objects I noticed, with the 32mm and barlow compared the factory twenty five. A seventeen year old eyepiece. Was not disappointed with any of the pieces at all, in fact very pleased, each one has a purpose and good variety of power. For those who want to complain about the case might not be in the right state as to why where out here. The eyepieces, barlow, and filters are excellent for the price. The case goes above and beyond to protect them all. Enough said. Excellent deal!

          This was my first purchase from Hayneedle/ telescopes.com
          My experience was excellent from order to delivery.
          I ordered the item on the 2nd of December and it arrived on the 5th of December. I live in Canada & the order came from the USA via FedEx. I have to say this was the fastest turnaround time I have ever experienced with any item coming from the USA. I highly recommend this online store. Item arrived safely with no damage and everything intact. Will order from their site again.

            I just recently purchased a celestron astromaster 114 and was having difficulties seeing fine details with the two lenses that came with the scope. I just got the lense and filter kit two days ago and wow what a diffrence! The clairty and zoom that you can get from this kit for its price cant be beat. Seeing the rings of Saturn is so easy now, and the craters of the moon are much more clear when using the filters. If you just got a scope and want to see more pick this kit up, it wont disappoint you.

                I highly recommend this kit if you're not sure where to start and only have the 2 stock eps that came with your telescope.

                The case is well made, fits extra eyepieces too!

                The filter set is nice as well, you also get a little description chart for usage of the filters.

                I get clear images on every eyepiece, if you don't, make sure they're clean!
