Get more light to your eye and enjoy the low power, wide field views of 2 eyepieces with the Celestron 2 Eyepiece & Filter Kit. It s a great way to expand the functionality and enjoyment of your telescope. As long as you have a Schmidt-Cassegrain or a refractor that sports a 2 focuser, you re good to go. Newtonian owners can use everything except the 2 Mirror Diagonal (unnecessary with a Newtonian reflector), as long as the focuser accepts 2 accessories.
Inside the metal, foam-lined carry case you ll find these accessories:
90º Mirror Diagonal - 2 to SCT
Diagonal Adapter for Refractors - 2
26 mm E-Lux Eyepiece - 2
32 mm E-Lux Eyepiece - 2
40 mm E-Lux Eyepiece - 2
2X Barlow Lens - 2
#80A Blue Filter - 2
#58 Green Filter - 2
#25 Red Filter - 2
#21 Orange Filter - 2
#12 Deep Yellow Filter - 2
Eyepieces - All three Celestron E-Lux eyepieces can be used in any telescope with a 2 focuser. Each eyepiece features a three-element design with a 56º apparent field of view (40 mm has a 50º field of view). The optics are fully multi-coated to improve light transmission and protect the optics. The 40 mm E-Lux eyepiece offers the lowest power option, for those times when you need all the light-gathering your telescope can offer to see faint deep-sky objects. The 26 mm & 32 mm focal lengths provide a bit more magnification. Experiment on your favorite objects to see which you like best.
2X Barlow Lens - The included, and very versatile 2X Barlow doubles the magnification of any 2 eyepiece, or, you can drop in a 2 to 1.25 adapter (not included), and use your 1.25 eyepieces in it as well. Since this kit includes three 2 eyepieces, you will be able to use them with and without the Barlow, giving you a total of six magnification options in all. Get the benefit of a 2 barrel with the magnification normally reserved for 1.25 eyepieces. The 40 mm will magnify like a 20 mm, the 32 mm like a 16 mm, and the 26 mm will do the work of a 13 mm.
Filters - Colored filters bring out details on a planet s surface or its cloud structure. All of the planetary filters included in the Eyepiece & Accessory Kit can be used on any 2 eyepiece or accessory with the proper filter threads, so they are very versatile. Just screw one onto your eyepiece of choice and slide it into the focuser.
Metal Case: The sturdy metal carry case has die-cut foam inside to protect and cushion your accessories. Keep each one in its appointed place when not in use and you ll keep them looking and performing like new.
