Cheap Plastic Case -- NOT aluminum

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on November 2, 2012
Just rcv'd this kit via UPS less than 30 minutes ago, so I have not been able to use/review the eyepieces nor filters yet...but the most irritating thing that was immediately obvious is that the kit is advertised as coming in an "ALUMINUM CASE" and the pkging for the kit indicates the same thing...but the case is cheap molded plastic, colored to look like an aluminum case.

I hope this is not an indication of other cost cutting that may have been done to the quality of the filters and eyepieces...I will write another/updated review regarding the eyepieces and filters themselves...but was so disgusted with this phony plastic case that I had to say something about it right away....

Celestron Eyepiece Kit

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner from United States, TX Written on February 21, 2010
The eyepiece kit is well worth the money. The eyepiece assortment allow lots of flexibility viewing terrestrial and celestial opbects - the moon, planets, clusters and stars. The case is very well made and has room for other accessories - star diagonals, other eyepieces and so on. the filters cover everything you'll need for getting the most from your sessions.
Pros: Good selection of eyepiece magnifications, filters and the case is versatile.
Cons: None...

The Celestron Telescope Eyepiece - Filter Accessory Kit - 94303

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, WV Written on February 6, 2010
The Celestron Telescope Eyepiece - Filter Accessory Kit - 94303 is awesome when comparing it to the price/performance ratio! I will never forget the "awe" factor after receiving the kit. In February of 2009, I purchased my first telescope from a hobby shop. After using the EPs (and the telescope) for about a week, I realized it was time for a more serious telescope and EPs.

The EPs arrived before the Skywatcher 10" Dob that was purchased from Opticspalnet.com. After dropping in the new 94303s, I was astounded at the clarity and was completely floored as compared to the standard EPs received with the hobby store telescope. And, lost a lot sleep afterwards. ;-)

As for the con of the product, I believe it is due to the range of the focal lengths of the EPs. Overtime, I realized - as others have mentioned - only the 9mm, 15mm, and 32mm were used. With the barlow provided with the kit, only the 15mm (80% of the time) and 32mm (20% of the time) was used with it. And, only one or two of the filters were used for the past year mostly due to the brightness of the moon.

For the performance compared to the price of the kit, you can not go wrong with this product - esp. if you only have the EPs provided with your telescope. I would recommend this kit to anyone even though not all products were utilized very often. It is a great value for the money!!!!

Pros: Great Value for the Money!
Cons: Not All Products in the Kit Was Used for the Past Year....
Would recommend: Yes

Celestron Telescope Eyepiece - Filter Accessory Kit - 94303

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on August 13, 2009
The Celestron Telescope Eyepiece - Filter Accessory Kit - 94303 is an excellent buy for good quality Plossl oculars. It is an especially good way for the new telescope purchaser to get started with an array of oculars.

The drawback to the set is the relative shortage of long focal length oculars for deep sky use (only the 32mm qualifies as such) and the preponderance of very high magnification short focal lengths. Plossl oculars shorter than about 8-10mm are difficult to look through due to their restricted apparent field, so the 4mm and 6mm oculars are basically useless for most purposes. However, the 9mm, 15mm and 32mm oculars are useful with most small telescopes (and large ones, too!). Remember that a decade ago a single Celestron Plossl cost as much as this whole set!

I have never found colored filters to be of much use, but the Moon Filter (ND)is definitely required for observing our nearest partner in space and makes the whole filter set worthwhile.

Everyone seems to want a Barlow lens, so Celestron threw one in. The reality is that it is almost always better to have an ocular of the appropriate focal length, rather than a longer focal length ocular and a Barlow and this kit already includes three short focal length oculars. (A 15mm ocular will give sharper images than a 30mm ocular and a 2x Barlow.)

The case is a nice extra and keeps everything organized in the field. The 32mm, 15mm and 9mm oculars perform well and should get plenty of use; ditto the Moon ...
