Hands-on research

Product Research


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 2.3mm, 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.


  • Focal Length: 2.3mm (0.09")
