I have a Celestron Powerseeker 127EQ.The telescope comes standard with a 20mm, 4mm, and a 3x Barlow Lens.While the 20mm works fine, the 4 mm is difficult for some to use, due to the small entry hole.However, combined with the 3x Barlow, the 4mm pushes the 127mm aperture to its absolute limit.
The accessory kit arguably has a better selection of lenses for use with my telescope, as they do not tread so close to the magnification limit of the scope, and are a higher quality lens then the ones included included with the telescope.The blue filter, and the moon are also quite useful as well, but the red filter makes the image very dim, and works better with a larger lens like the 15mm that is included.I live in a small rural town, so I suspect light pollution also plays a role here.
I personally wish I had purchased this kit at the same time as the telescope.The kit is a must have for a beginner starting out with a small aperture Celestron Telescope.The kit even comes with a very nice logo lens clothe.The only complaint I can offer is that these two lenses were not standard with the Powerseeker 127EQ instead of the 20, and 4mm.If you own a 127EQ, you will be surprised at the difference in quality the first time you use the lenses in the kit, and for the crazy low price that they are offered.

This kit was PERFECT for me! The telescope I bought only came with two eyepieces; a 20mm and a 4mm as well as a 3x Barlow scope. The 4mm is OK alone, but it is like looking through a pinhole. The 9mm and 15mm eyepieces that come in this kit are a perfect medium! The 15mm eyepiece with the 3x Barlow scope on my Telescope gives me almost max useful power on my 700mm focal length 60mm aperature of 140x. Saturn looks amazing and you can see very detailed craters on the moon with the moon filter. You can't beat this price for these eyepieces and filters!

Anyone who owns the celestron power seeker refractor will welcome this kit as a suitable upgrade to the eyepieces that came with the scope. These kellner eyepieces have better eyerelief and exit pupil than the supplied eyepieces. If you are an experienced observer than these are probably not for you. You might want a more corrected format. Inspite of that you cannot by an eyepiece kit as cheap as this one that performs this well. Also the kit comes with filters that can be useful to see some planetary details.

I got this because of the filters and to increase the choice of eyepieces for my portable telescope (a Celestron 114EQ Powerseeker). I found surprising for the fact that these should be the eyepieces included with the telescope. The field of view of the 15mm compared to the 20mm that came with the telescope is a lot better. It takes a lot more light and is several times better to see nebulas than the telescope provided. Celestron should include these with the beginning telescope packages.

For my use this is just what I needed for the price. I'm using it with a Celestron 127EQ PowerSeeker. You might say I am an amateur that is getting back into this hobby. If I need something better I will upgrade. This will work great for now.

This kit goes along with the Celestron telescope just purchased. It is very reasonably priced and well worth the investment. The additional lenses really do provide good quality and more opportunities to better view the sky.

Great quality eyepieces. I purchased quickly after purchasing the Celestron Powerseeker 127 EQ and it greatly increased the viewing quality with the default eyepieces. Worth every penny. :-)

Cons: case was not designed for this use. Had to reshape the foam for a better fit.

Pros: Well made with clear optics. Easy to use and comfortable for viewing.

Brought this set for my 10 tear old Grandson to use in a 114mm Bushnell Reflector that I got at a second hand store. The scope's tripod needs some repairs but we are working on it.. The kit was ordered on Friday night and was received at my post office box on Tuesday. Amazon said it would arrive on Thursday. So I am very happy with the shipping. I took the scope out to view Venus since it was high in the sky. We live in the mountains at 6,000 ft and do not get Venus popping over the tall pine trees too often. Venus was sharp with both lenses You could also see stars in the background. I then turned my sites on an old friend, Jupiter. Again Very sharp. The three moons that were out were sharp also. I used the 9mm Kellner eyepiece and the #80A blue planetary filter. This brought out 2 of the bands on Jupiter Very nice. My eye site isn't the best but if I can see Jupiter's band, My grandson with his good vision should see a lot more detail.. I would highly recommend this set as a starter kit for anyone just getting into the hobby. The price is right. The quality is good. And you won't cry if you break a lens. They are not Plossl's, but they do the job. Thanks Amazon and Celestron. My Grandson will have many in the backyard enjoying the view of the night sky.
