    It took me a LOT of thinking before buying "any eyepiece kit" for my Telescope. I am completely new in the field (amateur astronomer) so my lack of knowledge probably leads me to "wishing for better image". I am using it with my Celestron CPC800 and I was expecting to see those amazing close up images, but as you go with more magnification it becomes extremely difficult to focus an object. Jupiter looks spectacular, I easily see up to 5 of its biggest moons with a low magnification eye piece. I can also see the stripes where the "Big red spot" is located. I cannot see the Jovian Rings, but as I read one requires a rather LARGE telescope to be able to see them. I am uploading a picture of Jupiter. Don't let it mislead you as I don't know yet how to take pictures where you can see what you really see thru the Eyepieces. The picture looks rather "black and white" but thru the eyepieces you can see colors. Basically, for the price you pay, I believe is a great starting kit. You can grow later as you acquire more knowledge and know which exact eye piece you want.

    Excellent bang for the buck

    The included eyepieces with beginner telescopes are very poor quality glass and usually have very little eye relief. These eyepieces have decent eye relief. While there are certainly higher quality eyepieces available, these give you excellent bang for the buck for any sub-$500 telescope, and would suffice for sub-$1000 scopes. The included 2x Barlow is the secret sauce of this package as a good Barlow is 1/3 the cost of this kit. The Celestron 8-24mm zoom lens is an excellent alternative if you only want one eyepiece. You don't get the range of zoom that this kit provides or the clarity of fixed eyepieces, but it is very convenient to have just one eyepiece for casual viewing.

    I recently purchased a Celestron Omni XLT 150 and wanted a variety of lenses and filters to use with my new telescope. The kit gave me a variety of lenses with a wide range of options. I was extremely happy with the quality of optics.

    This kit comes with quite a few eyepieces and filters for the price. Great for a amateur to a novice. Some Barlow eyepieces can bring 200-300 alone.

    These are not good quality eye pieces. It has a variety of magnifications but they are mostly unusable.
