Celestron 2.3mm X-Cel LX Eyepiece
|This exceptionally short focal length eyepiece is useful for reaching high magnifications with short focal length telescopes. |
The 2.3mm X-Cel LX eyepiece offers the exceptionally short focal length needed to achieve high magnifications with short focal length refractors. This eyepiece should prove useful in instruments of up to about 600mm focal length, provided that the telescope optics are capable of the resulting magnification. The resulting exit pupil will probably be quite small, rendering this eyepiece useful for only bright targets including the moon and planets. Consult our eyepiece calculator below for specific applications. All X-Cel LX eyepieces feature a twist up eyecup and a no slip rubber grip ring. X-Cel LX eyepieces are parfocal, meaning that little or no focusing is required when switching between focal lengths.
