Agena 1.25" Wireless Illuminated Reticle Eyepiece
Nicely made and works well. The crosshairs are a bit wide, but defocusing the target star works well for telescope alignment. The LEDs are very bright and must dimmed all the down.

Newbies welcome
Agena courteously answered my (probably inane) questions, and helped me with eyepiece decisions without making me feel dumber than a bag of hammers. Seems they get that not everyone out there has 37 years of experience with astrophotography!

Great Service
The eyepiece is just what I expected, good quality, good crosshairs. It arrived on time and once again, Agena proves itself an excellent source of just not an extensive range of astronomy products, but a reliable source of knowledge on how to use the...

Celestron 1.25" Cheshire Collimating Eyepiece for Newtonian Refle
Eyepiece worked fine once I figured out how to use it. The included instructions were a little vague to me, but I found some at Sky & Telescope.com. Product arrived within the promised time-frame, and was well packaged and in excellent condition...

great tool
I was able to use this eyepiece to align a focuser that was out of alignment.

Perfect in every way
Very elegant design. I wear glasses (VERY near-sighted) and was concerned that I would not be able to see the double cross-hairs. The integrated focus made this a non-issue.

Works very well, the reflection
Works very well, the reflection is clear and well centered. I found that the crosshairs do get in the way, but they're very easy to remove by unscrewing the ring that carries them.

Disappointed as a finder eyepiece
I purchased this eyepiece to use in my finders that use interchangeable 1.25 inch eyepieces. I have used it three nights under dark skies. Each night, I gave up and used another eyepiece. Finders are fast, F/4 is typical, i have three, F/3.75, F/4...

Excellent product at good price
I bought this eyepiece for double star observing. It’s good optically and the scales are useful. Batteries are included. I agree with the comments that it is a bit bright when fully dimmed. I did buy the top cap from Agena.
