Our take on the Celestron 12mm X-Cel LX Eyepiece

by Eric Angevine
Celestron

The Celestron 12mm X-Cel LX eyepiece offers a 60º apparent field of view, which is perfect for the Moon, the planets, and a plethora of deep-sky objects. The premium six-element optical set is finished with multiple layers of high-transmission coatings for clear, sharp images. All X-Cel LX eyepieces feature 16mm of comfortable eye relief, and are parfocal, which means you can switch out eyepieces within the series during observing sessions and little or no additional focusing will be required.

Features

Overview: The Celestron X-Cel LX-series eyepieces provide a 60° apparent field of view which will give you an excellent view of the moon, planets, and other celestial objects in the night sky. This eyepiece has a focal length of 12mm, and is designed for 1.25" format telescopes.

Optics: This X-Cel LX eyepiece is equipped with 6-element, fully multi-coated optics to create sharper images. The edges of the optics are blackened to increase contrast. The 1.25" insert barrel is threaded, allowing you to use optional filters.

Construction: The eyepiece's body is made of black-anodized aluminum. You can extend the length of the eyepiece by turning it counter-clockwise. For eyeglass wearers, turning the eyepiece all the way clockwise creates a flat surface. The eyepiece features a treaded rubber grip around the center to give you a firm grip, even in wet conditions or if you're wearing gloves.

Parfocal: All of the X-Cel LX-series eyepieces are parfocal, which means as you change eyepieces from the 2.3mm up through the 25mm, you will not need to refocus.

Specifications:

  • Focal Length: 12mm (0.47")
  • Apparent Field of View: 60°
  • Eye Relief: 16mm (0.63")
  • Barrel Size: 1.25"
