Set features great eyepieces that have good field of view. Lower power lenses reveal great details of the moon and are ideal for 'calibrating' your spotting scope. Set's increments are very useful for stepping up magnifications of Saturn, other planets or the moon. Very easy to go 40mm to 32mm to 15mm to 12.4mm to 9.7mm to 6.4mm with focus and center technique greatly alleviating frustration and taking minimal time.
Definitely recommend the set based on the increments alone, quality is above average for a set in this price range. I guess the only hit I have is eyepieces could be identified more readily. Font on eyepieces is small and hard to see in the dark.

A good package which complements the telescope I bought at the same time. Rather than buy individual eyepieces, I preferred the set as it is economical (important since I am picking astronomy up again after 2 decades and don't know whether I will last), quick (so my kids get to see lots fast - important to keep their interest)and of good quality. The views I get with the eyepieces and the combinations available are very fulfilling. My son got his first look at Jupiter and its moons with his own eyes tonight - magical for a 7 year old. Overall a very good set and it comes with a nice case with well-cushioned pockets for the eyepieces(an extra slot for the eyepiece that comes with the set and for the diagonal would make this perfect). A nice way to start viewing.

My husband gave me a really nice telescope for Christmas. I wanted some better lenses to view planets so I searched around online. I found this set on the manufacturer's website and found it to be a few dollars cheaper here on Amazon. I'm very pleased with this set. The lenses are nice and heavy, the case is terrific and keeps each lens sealed tightly so that they can't move around. Great variety of lenses, heavy and much better quality than the ones that came with my Meade telescope.

Having purchased a telescope that came with a standard lens, we quickly realized we could see things but not with the kind of clarity we desired. The Meade 4000 eyepiece optics set arrived very quickly, was packaged very securely for shipping and came with a great protective case for the lenses. The quality of these lenses is unbelievable! It has turned our star and planet-gazing into a real treat because of the extreme clarity. What an upgrade! Well worth the price. Very satisfied.

Although the case shown is not the one received; it is an overall great selection of lenses and filters.
I bought these for my Meade ETX 90 and 125 telescopes so I could get greater magnification on celestial objects by stepping up the magnification in increments. Starting at low power it is easier to locate deep space objects. Then keep increasing the magnification and centering the object, then repeat with the next more powerful lens.
The 32 & 40 mm lenses seem better suited for terrestrial object rather than celestial, so if this is not your intended use, you might consider just getting single lenses vs. the whole kit.

I have the Meade LS8. Already had some eyepieces but not the whole kit. Shipped fast with Prime. These may not be as good as the ones made in Japan but are not bad for the price. The case is nice. I don't think many people will use the filters except for the moon filter. It's nice having the case to protect the eyepieces. If you have a Meade or other nice scope these are the way to go in my eyes for the price.

For under $200 how can you go wrong? These are quality eye pieces that won't break the bank. The included filters, 2X Barlow and case just add to the value. If you're on a budget but want more options for your scope, I couldn't recommend these any higher.
