The Celestron 2” E-lux Eyepiece and Filter Kit allows you to get more light to your eye and enjoy the low power, wide field views of 2” eyepieces with plenty of accessories. It’s a great way to expand the functionality and enjoyment of your telescope. As long as you have a Schmidt-Cassegrain or a refractor that sports a 2” focuser, you’re good to go. Newtonian owners can use everything except the 2” Mirror Diagonal (unnecessary with a Newtonian reflector), as long as the focuser accepts 2” accessories.
With the Celestron 2” E-lux Eyepiece and Filter Kit you’ll get a 2” Mirror Diagonal, three E-lux 2” eyepieces, a 2” 2X Barlow Lens, five colored filters to improve observations of the planets, and a foam-fitted aluminum carry case.
The set includes three Celestron E-lux eyepieces which can be used in any telescope with a 2” focuser. Each eyepiece features a three-element design with a 56º apparent field of view (40mm has a 50º field of view). The optics are fully multi-coated to improve light transmission and protect the optics. The 40mm E-lux eyepiece offers the lowest power option, for those times when you need all the light-gathering your telescope can offer to see faint deep-sky objects. The 26mm & 32mm focal lengths provide a bit more magnification. Experiment on your favorite objects to see which you like best.
Colored filters help bring out details on a planet’s surface or its cloud structure. All of the planetary filters included in the Eyepiece & Accessory Kit can be used on any 2” eyepiece or accessory with the proper filter threads, so they are very versatile. Just screw one onto your eyepiece of choice and slide it into the focuser. Filters include #80A Blue Filter, #58 Green Filter, #25 Red Filter, #21 Orange Filter and #12 Deep Yellow Filter.
The versatile 2X Barlow doubles the magnification of any 2” eyepiece, or you can drop in a 2” to 1.25” adapter (not included), and use your 1.25” eyepieces in it as well. Since this kit includes three 2” eyepieces, you will be able to use them with and without the Barlow, giving you a total of six magnification options in all. Get the benefit of a 2” barrel with the magnification normally reserved for 1.25” eyepieces. The 40 mm will magnify like a 20 mm, the 32 mm like a 16 mm, and the 26 mm will do the work of a 13 mm.
The Celestron 2” E-lux Eyepiece and Filter Kit fits perfectly in the included sturdy metal carry case has die-cut foam inside to protect and cushion your accessories. Keep each one in its appointed place when not in use and you’ll keep them looking and performing like new.
