The newly enhanced Celestron X-Cel LX eyepiece series is what you've been waiting for in a high quality eyepiece for planetary viewing. With a brand new sleek and robust design and a twist-up eye guard, these eyepieces are especially designed for comfort and ease of use. The Celestron X-Cel LX also has a realistically wide field of view of 6° and 6-element fully multi-coated optics for magnificent edge-to-edge performance. X-Cel LX Telescope eyepieces are parfocal and require little to no focusing when changing from low to high power.
Celestron 5mm X-Cel LX Telescope Eyepiece
The view through each X-Cel LX eyepiece is very crisp and clear. Celestron has incorporated Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass in this telescope eyepiece line, which translates to high contrast, sharp images. The end result is further enhanced by the use of five layers of special coatings on each air-to-glass surface. Each X-Cel LX Telescope eyepiece has blackened edges to eliminate internal reflections. For ease in handling and comfort in use, the design employs a rubber grip around the barrel and a rubber eyecup that can be left up or folded down for maximum user enjoyment.

When I bought this, my main intent was to use it for very fine tuning of the collimation on my 8" SCT using mag 2-3 stars because the 5 mm focal length would give 400x on the scope. I wasn't expecting much of a fantastic view because such high power is starting to push the limits of viewing on my scope.
But then... SUCCESS and WOW! Once the scope was collimated to high precision using this eyepiece in the final process, I was pleasantly surprised (thrilled, really) to see (with this eyepiece and others) some outstanding views of planets, nebulae, double stars, the Moon, etc. I was able to resolve details I'd never seen with my particular scope before. That night, I had originally intended to collimate, look at a few things really quick, then pack up and go home. Well, six hours later I was STILL out observing and having a great time!
This eyepiece immediately became one of my go-to pieces of equipment for routine observing. In addition to the great views, I also love the way it feels in my hand! Unlike the smaller typical 1.25" eyepieces, I can actually hold this one and manipulate it with cold hands that have lost their dexterity.
