    Cambia drásticamente el uso que le puedas sacar a tu telescopio (yo uso un Astromaster 130eq).

    El mejor complemento para el telescopio, además de que la calidad de los oculares es muy buena. Excelente.

    insuperable el precio en Amazon y el servicio de entrega muy eficaz. Sólo en lo personal las chapitas no me agradaron mucho. Absolutamente necesarios para alguien experimentado o principiante, la calidad del revestimiento y ensamble muy buenas.

    I got my first telescope for Christmas and was excited to try out accessories so I bought a bunch of cheap barlows and eyepieces to mess around with. I wasn’t happy with the results I was getting so I bit the bullet and bought this set. What a difference!

    This set definitely has more than you’ll use, but it’s perfect for figuring out what you like. The image quality is far above the standard Kellner eyepieces that came with my Celestron telescope, and the barlow is way better than the amazon ones that I was using. This 2X barlow is a higher magnification than the 3X amazon ones and has far less light loss. I thought I’d like the 6mm one the most but I’m glad I didn’t just pick pieces individually because it turns out that the 32mm is my favorite.

    If you’re like me and you don’t know what you’re doing but you want to learn more and get better at it, I highly recommend this kit as a jumping off point.

    Für mich als Einsteiger war dieses Set zunächst sehr nützlich. Ich finde den Preis (ca. 180 Euro) für 5 Okulare, den Koffer, Filter und die Barlow-Linse von dieser Qualität eigentlich zu hoch angesichts der minimalen Produktionskosten. Es sind keine hochwertigen Okulare, sondern einfache Plössl-Linsen. Aber für Anfänger zum Ausprobieren ist das ausreichend.
    Am besten ist das 32mm Okular, das 17er geht auch noch. Alle kleineren sind grenzwertig bis unbrauchbar bzgl. Einblickwinkel und Übersicht. Mit diesen hat man keinen Spaß. Man muss mit der Pupille extrem nah ran, um etwas zu sehen, bis die Pupille mit der Hornhaut an das Okular stößt. Für Brillenträger ohnehin unbrauchbar.
    Die Barlow-Linse ist extrem mittelwertig, nicht scharf.

    Dann sind noch verschiedene Farbfilter dabei, die für Kinder sehr interessant sein mögen, aber in der Praxis überflüssig, weil sie nichts zur verbesserten Sicht beitragen.

    I’ve been an amateur astronomer for over 50 years. Plus, I’ve tested and reviewed telescopes, accessories, and eyepieces for major companies, so I’m pretty sure I know what to look for and recommend. There’s good and bad stuff out there, and it isn’t always easy for novices to get a grip on the difference, without either using an item, or finding an accurate report about it.

    First of all folks, please know that a “lens” is the glass on the business-end of a refractor telescope, or the optic on your CAMERA. The thing you attach to a telescope is called an “EYEPIECE” — not a “lens”.

    Secondly, any “set” of eyepieces is generally going to be 90 percent useless. That’s because most of the higher powered eyepieces in the set will only get used once or twice — until you finally realize that high powers are only useful on a telescope if you’re in a VERY DARK LOCATION, with almost perfect sky conditions (an extremely rare combination!).

    These eyepieces are all 4-element Plossl’s — a very old and very basic design, but very tried-and-true for general observing. The 32mm is the best in the set, and probably the one you’ll use the most.

    The 2X Barlow is of average quality, but can be very useful — it’ll turn the 32mm into a 16mm without cutting eye-relief (good, if you wear glasses).

    The Moon filter is a necessity if you want to do any lunar observing. Only one or two of the color filters will be useful.

    So what we have here, is one useful eyepiece, a 2X Barlow, a Moon filter, and a color filter or two — for which you’d pay a lot less by purchasing just those items SEPERATELY. And if you shop smart, you’ll find a high-quality 32mm Plossl and a 2X Barlow — Televue for example, are hands-down the best production optics available! They’re generally more expensive, but well worth the investment.

    Celestron makes excellent telescopes!! My 6SE is a remarkable piece of engineering, and has World Class optics. But I use eyepieces of World Class quality to complement it, and I get awesome results.
    [NOTE]: These are not Celestron’s “Feature” eyepieces — they are their “accessory” eyepieces, and like Meade’s accessory EP’s they are only of average quality, and are usually way overpriced, like most Meade/Celestron accessories.

    My advice is to save for a Televue 32mm or 25mm Plossl, ($110 to $135 online) and 2X Barlow, ($115) and buy a Moon filter online from a reputable dealer (Orion offers an excellent Moon filter [#05662] for about $15, which I’ve been using since 1997). It’ll all work out to cost a little more, but you’ll find that you’ll actually use them.

    [NOTE]: I rarely use color-filters. But the ones I do use are the Orion #80A and #82A. You won’t need much more for general observing.

    [TIP]: The best way to store and carry eyepieces, is in “Eyepiece Canisters” — clear poly screw-top containers made for that purpose. They’re available online (I get mine from Oceanside Photo & Telescope) for $2 to $3 each. Put them all in a backpack or travel bag, along with your red flashlight, dew heaters, gloves, and Lance crackers. Much easier!! Better yet, I use a shooter’s Range Bag (from MidwayUSA). They have roomy external zippered pockets and internal compartments. Plus they’re well padded. Perfect!!

    I have had and used this set for many years. It gives you a set of starter eye pieces to learn what magnifications show what and includes a Barlow. the 32mm Plossl isn’t bad, and the 17 mmis ok, the 13mm is tolerable. The 8 and 6 are like looking through pinholes. The Barlow adds color (thats not a good thing) but is otherwise usable. If you need to wear eyeglasses, forget it. I don’t wear glasses and I still had a rough time. The filters are all but useless. The box is nice. Honestly, if I had a time machine to tell me what to get all those years ago I would have gone with a zoom eyepiece and a barlow instead. it would have been cheaper and much more useful for the purposes of a beginner. All in all the set is not terrible, but there are much better values for the money.

    Habituellement, lorsque vous achetez un télescope, il est livré avec un ou deux oculaires. J’ai acheté ce produit la première fois que je suis allé utiliser un télescope, pensant que j’allais avoir besoin d’innombrables oculaires et filtres pour utiliser mon télescope.
    Mais au fil du temps, j’ai appris que cela n’en valait pas la peine.
    Premièrement, vous n’avez pas besoin d’autant d’oculaires. Selon le télescope, deux ou trois oculaires supplémentaires suffisent largement.
    Deuxièmement, avec ce que coûte ce kit, on peut acheter deux oculaires de bonne qualité, ou un oculaire et un barlow de bonne qualité, avec beaucoup plus de luminosité et de bien meilleures optiques.
    Alors mon conseil: n’achetez pas ce kit, mieux vaut laisser le conseiller d’un magasin d’astronomie vous conseiller sur deux oculaires de bonne qualité.

    This is an amazing price for this many eyepieces and filters. These are high quality Plossl (4 elements) eyepieces. The selection of filters is about all you will ever need. I haven’t used my telescope for a while and managed to lose the eyepieces so I bought this set. These are better quality eyepieces than I originally had so it was fortuitous.

    Plossl eyepieces sell for around $40.00 each, and the Barlow costs about the same, so 5 eyepieces and a Barlow bought individually would cost about $240.00. Filter prices range all over the place depending on quality. The cheapest I found was a set of six filters from Orion for $120.00. Don’t forget to add in the padded case for about $50.00 to arrive at $410.00. While this set offers great savings, the advertised claim that the value is over $700.00 is greatly exaggerated. However, a $280.00 saving is still a great deal.

    For the novice. magnification is calculated by dividing the focal length of the Mirror (reflector) or Primary lens (refractor) by the focal length of the eyepiece. For example, my telescope has a focal length of 1,000 mm (1 inch = 25.4 mm), so the 32 mm eyepiece gives me 1,000/32 = 31x. Perfect for looking at nebulae like those found in Orion. At the other extreme, the 6 mm lens gives 167x, and the Barlow doubles that to 334, good for studying Mars (If the planetwide dust storm ever settles).

    I recommend buying these other items to enhance your experience.

    1) I use a medium sized refractor for most of my observations so a diagonal prism for ease of viewing is almost essential. Reflectors don’t really need diagonals because of the position of the eyepiece. The one I bought is “Meade Instruments #918A 1.25-Inch Diagonal Prism.” for $29.99. Here is the link: https://amazon.com/gp/product/B0006NAS8K/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    2) A light pollution filter if you live in an area with a lot of street lights. there are some very expensive ones, but, I bought the “Gosky 1.25 Inch Light Pollution Filter for Telescope” for $19.99. Here is the link: https://amazon.com/gp/product/B01LGZNMGG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    3) Optional, 4mm eyepiece for higher magnification. Most complete sets of eyepieces have the 4 mm eyepiece, so I was surprised it was not in this set. No matter, it is still a fantastic set. I bought the “Celestron Omni Series 1-1/4 4MM Eyepiece” for $23.00. Here is the link: https://amazon.com/gp/product/B00008Y0S5/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    The case has a couple of slots cut out in the foam liner for the addition of extra pieces. Using the cutouts you can store the extra filter, eyepiece, and diagonal in the case. I removed the foam from the filter area to store the extra filter and as luck would have it, it was the perfect length to use as a spacer between the diagonal and the extra eyepiece (eyepiece hasn’t arrived yet). You can always cut the foam that you remove from the large cutout area, it was just nice to have the perfect fit. As you can see from the photo (Amazon rotated it 90 degrees) it all fits nicely.

    This is the perfect set for casual astronomy buffs who don’t want to mortgage their houses to buy astronomy equipment. Since it’s Celestron, you can count on it being good quality.
