5.0 out of 5 stars My first lens
Pretty much a complete set of everything you need. The only thing they could have put in the 3xbarlow eye piece.

3.0 out of 5 stars Celestron Kit
This accessory kit is useful and it is a shame they don't package it all together under one price. Instead, you get the scope then discover you need all this too! Guess that is marketing, but I don't like being taken advantage of. Anyway, the kit is helpful. Remember, the first scope is just that -very basic and nothing expensive. Same can be said for this kit...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Eyepiece, August 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Celestron FirstScope Accessory Kit with eyepiece, moon filter, finderscope, bracket, CD-ROM, bag
I like this kit because it helps to target the telescope and has better eyepieces that have improved magnification. The finderscope is a bit sensitive to sight initially, and is a bit fragile and can be bumped out of alignment easily. The carry bag is nice, but doesn't help to protect the finderscope much. For $20, it provides a lot of additional eyepieces adds some needed targeting functionality for the basic Celestron Telescope.

Good gift for children with the Celestron telescope. I have had no feedback from grandchild. Serious astronomers probably want to use a higher entry level.

3.0 out of 5 stars Celestron Kit, December 22, 2013

This review is from: Celestron FirstScope Accessory Kit with eyepiece, moon filter, finderscope, bracket, CD-ROM, bag
This accessory kit is useful and it is a shame they don't package it all together under one price. Instead, you get the scope then discover you need all this too! Guess that is marketing, but I don't like being taken advantage of. Anyway, the kit is helpful. Remember, the first scope is just that -very basic and nothing expensive. Same can be said for this kit.

Eye pieces are clear and focus well. The finder scope is very cheap and extremely hard to align. Actually, it is hard to align and almost impossible to keep aligned. However, it does help when trying to use the telescope if you can get it aimed in the general area first using the finder scope.

I found the CD to be very out of date and of almost no value to me. Certainly not user friendly. After about 30 minutes with it, it just shelved it. Maybe I should have spent more time learning to use it, but I could not see any reason to do so.

Overall, the kit is overpriced for what you get, but it is minimally worth getting - if nothing else, for the eye pieces.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great complement to the FirstScope, February 18, 2014
This review is from: Celestron FirstScope Accessory Kit with eyepiece, moon filter, finderscope, bracket, CD-ROM, bag
I bought my children (and me) the FirstScope for the holidays. This is a must-have accessory kit. The spotter scope, when calibrated, is invaluable for viewing stars and planets. The various eye pieces and moon filter enable viewing the sky and moon from many different perspectives. I only wish there were more range between the eye pieces that came with the scope and the ones included in this set. I'd love a more powerful option...
