Astro Essentials 1.25" Eyepiece & Filter Kit
The Astro Essentials 1.25" eyepiece and filter kit includes 12 accessories that provide a good upgrade for the eyepieces and accessories typically included with many beginner telescopes.
The handy, metal, foam-lined carry cases encloses five quality Plossl eyepieces, a 2x Barlow lens, and six coloured filters to improve planetary observations.
Five eyepieces and a Barlow lens equals ten different magnifications to choose from, including the equivalent of a 2mm, 3mm, 4mm, 4.5mm, 6mm, 7.5mm, 9mm, 15mm, 16mm and 32mm. And that doesn’t include eyepieces you may already have in your collection, which will now achieve double the magnification with the addition of the Barlow.
The most popular planetary filters are included in this kit. Have fun seeing what a blue filter will reveal about Jupiter, or unveil the polar ice caps on Mars with a red or orange filter.
