      3.0 Replacement Eyepiece for Celestron Regal Spotting Scope

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      I don't believe this matches the quality that comes with the scope. Used for digiscoping and videos and pictures not as sharp as the original

      5.0 Zoom Eyepieces

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      I recently purchased 8 Starguide 8-24 mm zoom eyepieces for our library scope program. These eyepieces are the perfect fit for any 1.25 inch kit, as no other eyepieces are needed unless you want very wide field views.

      4.0 Primary Eyepiece

      Pros:

      Compact,Easy to Use,Lightweight

      Cons:

      Comments:

      I have two scopes, an 8 inch SCT and an 80 mm short tube refractor. I use this zoom lense as the primary eyepiece on both. It provides a wide angle view for acquiring objects and a zoom capability for close up views without changing lenses. It works great!

      5.0 Best Zoom for the money! No doubt!

      Pros:

      Easy to Use,Sharp,No Ca,Accurate,Quality Lenses,Strong Construction,Compact,Lightweight

      Cons:

      Comments:

      This is best to use for planet and star observations. It splits perfect the double double and Izar (Epsilon Bootis) with Barlow 2X-3X in my F/9 ED refractor. And what is intresting about this its also sharp to the edge to edge and No CA!

      Only cons is the FOA in 24 mm. Apart from that it is perfect. As I said in begining, it's perfect for the planets and star splitting.

      If someone looking for a Zoom eyepiece for budget price and Pentax quality, this is IT!
      This is a keeper for me. Highly recommended from me to all of you stargazers.

      5.0 Zoom Eyepiece

      Pros:

      Easy to Use,Strong Construction

      Cons:

      Comments:

      For the money this eyepiece can't be beat. Crisp views, and easy to focus. Of course there are higher price eyepieces with similar focal lengths out there but I can't imagine that they yield 4 to 5 times better views. This one does all that I expect from a zoom eyepiece

      Accurate,Easy to Use,Quality Lenses,Strong Construction

      Cons:

      Comments:

      I have used this eyepiece everytime I have used my 10" Dobsonian telescope since I receive it. Works perfectly with the moon, Jupiter and Saturn. Glad I purchased this eyepiece.

      4.0 Quite surprised with the image quality

      Pros:

      Strong Construction,Lightweight,Quality Lenses,Easy to Use

      Cons:

      Strong Construction,Lightweight,Quality Lenses,Easy to Use

      Comments:

      I bought this zoom eyepiece to use for outreach events when people want to see something and then move on. This eyepiece lets me frame medium to high magnification views without having to reach for another EP. I do not use this for low power, wide field viewing. The build quality is nice. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the image. I performed some side by side testing with comparable FL Plossl EP's. It was hard to detect any difference in the image quality. If this EP had a wider FOV, it would have received five stars without question.

      3.0 Zoom, zoom, zoom...!

      Pros:

      Easy to Use,Quality Lenses

      Cons:

      Heavy

      Comments:

      I bought this to replace broken zoom eyepiece I got from Apogee at an excellent price some years ago. That eyepiece was lighter and smaller than the Celestron and I rate overall superior to the Celestron. However, this eyepiece fits the bill nicely.

      5.0 Great performance

      Pros:

      Versatile,Quality Lenses

      Cons:

      None

      Comments:

      I bought this for two purposes. The first is for visual use in my spotting scope. The other is for Digiscoping through the spotting scope. This eyepiece works great for both purposes. About 8 years ago I bought a Vixen Non Click Stop 8-24mm Zoom for $219. I sold that many years ago so I am going on memory only but this zoom performs as good or better as I remember the Vixen doing. The eyepiece also includes integrated t-threads on the upper barrel. Removing the rubber eyeguard exposes the t-threads. There is some vignetting using my DSLR, but nothing major and it is totally expected given the 1.25" format.The zoom action is smooth and much easier to turn than the Vixen that I had before. Great product at twice the price and a real bargain.
