a wider range with barlow :-) ?

It saves me from having to change eyepieces and loose my target. And it's just so easy to use

Not crazy about

Not crazy about this EP. Big advantage is being able to hook your DSLR to it directly. Sharpness just ok at 24mm but significantly deteriorates 15 to 8mm. There seems to be a 'hole' around 18mm where huge loss of light occurs. As usual, top quality at low price does not exist in optics. D.

Great Eyepiece!

By

from Dallas, Tx  -  Casual/ Recreational

This really speeds up the task of alignment and being able to zoom in at will. Huge time saver and the images are sharp.

Very good eyepiece

By

from El Centro, CA  -  Casual/ Recreational

Great to change the magnification and dial to the sharpest view. I didn't notice any difference when compared to the views of my regular eyepieces. Good for the moon, planets, double starts, Orion nebula. Worth having and eliminate the need to switch eyepieces.

Very well

Good travel buddy with light-weight refractors.

It works

By

from Stanford, CA  -  Casual/ Recreational

Generally good with my Nexstar 5SE. A bit difficult to find the best focus at 8mm, but this should be more a problem of atmospheric turbulence than the optics of the zoom lens. At 24mm down to 12mm it is crystal clear.

OK at best.

By

from Live Oak, Florida  -  Casual/ Recreational

I dont suppose there is much room for complaints at this price range however I would have expected some type of "click stop" at some points through-out the zoom. Without this, any attemp to figure magnification would be a guess, at best. The veiw quality is acceptable but I will say that this Zoom piece will not be used as often as I had hoped. Not a bad product in its price range and bottom line is Yes I would probly recommend to any beginner with a modest scope and/or ep selection.

Fun Eyepiece to have

By

from Fort Lauderdale, FL  -  Casual/ Recreational

No need for a bunch of high power eyepieces, specially when doing outreach where people asks -Can I see it bigger? Nice field of view and good quality, but keep in mind that because phisical light properties, only the center field of view has good focus on the lower mm setting and you loose sharpness. To avoid the outreach public to touch the focuser of my SCT, I use the zoom eyepiece as fine focuser for personal eye ajustment. But...All they want to see is: BIGGER!

Questions about this item:

Tom M  How does one connect a DSLR to the Celestron zoom eyepiece? It does not appear to be threaded at the top end.
ROGER D  Hi Tom, Mine is about 3 years old. I assume they have not changed it. The rubber eyeguard can be removed. Underneath is a standard T-thread adapter. Hope this helps. Roger
Shopper  Hi there, How can I attach a Nkon Coolpix S600 to this Celestron zoom? Is any bracket that will allow me to install my Nikin Coolpix for eyepiece projection photography? Is it worthwhile or should I try something else? Thanks.
JOHN L  What you want is a "Universal Digital Camera Adapter". I bought a Zhumell 28-45mm Digi-scoping adapter, which makes for a very tight fit with this eyepiece (this eyepiece measures around 44mm wide on the frame but 45.7mm on the rubber grip, with a little finesse it does work). I paired that with a Kodak Zi8 and a Mead 8" and got some great video of the moon. Be careful with retracting lens cameras as that they shut themselves off and the lens may extend out and collide with the eyepiece and destroy either the camera or the eyepiece. Be careful and have fun.
