1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap Lens Set But Should Be Cheaper Still, 27 Sep 2013
This review is from: Celestron 5 piece Lens Upgrade kit - Includes Free Moon Filter - 1.25" Lens Fitting - Great Upgrade To Compliment Your Existing lenses - Comes Complete With Celestron Hard Case (Electronics)
From a distance this kit looks the business. Nice case and snug fitting eyepiece slots with cased eyepieces too as well as a half decent moon filter. That's the end of the good news though. The eyepieces are all Huygens type with the expection of the 4mm high power one which is a Ramsden type. Huygens are the oldest design that you can buy these days and give pretty much inferior viewing to more modern eyepiece set ups. The Ramsden is a better design but again, not great. The EPs that come with your scope are probably at least as good as these. In fairness you are getting 5 EPs for your money and in a very long focal length telescope these would probably be okay but you would be much better off getting a couple (25mm and 10mm) of superior Achromat (or Kellner) eyepieces which would be less money. Skywatcher do a half decent and very cheap set. The moon filter is actually pretty good but again, this can be picked up pretty cheaply.
