Description

The FirstScope Accessory Kit expands the capabilities of your FirstScope telescope to make it more enjoyable and easier to use, enhance your views of the night sky, and make it safer to transport wherever you go.


Accessory Kit Includes:


  • 12.5 mm Eyepiece – 1.25" – Increases the power to 24x which makes it easier to find and observe some objects that require more magnification.
  • 6 mm Eyepiece – 1.25" – This eyepiece increases the power to 50x which boosts the magnification up higher to see more detail of faint objects.
  • Moon Filter – 1.25" – A moon filter reduces the brightness of the moon and improves contrast so that greater detail can be observed on the lunar surface. The filter has threads on it which screw into the bottom of the eyepieces.
  • 5x24 Finderscope & bracket – This finderscope with bracket will make it easier to locate astronomical objects with the FirstScope telescope because of its much wider field of view and low magnification. Installation is simple with no tools necessary.
  • CD-ROM – "The SkyX" – Lets you explore and develop an understanding of basic astronomy. This full featured planetarium software is capable of printing star charts, displaying beautiful astronomical photos, helps you to identify planets and stars, learn the constellations, and much more. Operating Systems: Windows XP and Vista, as well as MAC 10.4.8 and later.
  • Nylon Carrying Bag for FirstScope Telescope - Pack your FirstScope telescope and accessories in this tote bag for easy and safe transportation

    Must Have For Firstsope Owners

    Contains two additional Celestron eyepieces of good quality, each easily worth more than the cost of this accessory kit. Doubles the versatility of the already great FirstScope telescope.

    Helpful addition to the FirstScope

    The eyepieces make good additions to the FirstScope. The finder scope is pretty much useless, in my opinion. TheSkyX First Light edition is helpful software if you don't already own similar software.

    Best Uses

    • Astronomy

    Comments about Celestron FirstScope Accessory Kit:

    The disk, eyepieces, and moon filter are great purchases for the money. Eyepieces, disk, and moon filter work as expected. The spotting or finder scope is absolute garbage. The objective is WAY to small to pull any amount of light to find objects in the dark. Customer Service was great and I received my items fast.

        Comments about Celestron FirstScope Accessory Kit:

        I ordered this on Friday and paid the minimum $4 for shipping and it arrived 3 days later with no delay. The scope is a good thing to have so that before you look into the firstscope you know where you're looking. It also helps you find fainter objects like the Orion Nebula which I located and observed in city light pollution. The two eyepieces are also great, the 12.5mm is the one I now primarily use, and the 6mm is great for finding planets. To do any lunar observation you need to get a moon filter no matter what. With the moon filter I am able to see all of the craters of the vast moon's surface. Overall this kit is a great investment and I would recommend it to all firstscope owners.

              Comments about Celestron FirstScope Accessory Kit:

              it's a great thing, adds value to the "first scope", it adds portability, extra eyepieces, a finder scope, and a lunar filter. it would be nice to include a case for all the eyepieces (the scope and this kit make 4 eyepieces, plus a filter, i had a pelican case that does this nicely floating about)

              the CD, "the SkyX", works fine with windows XP, and is a good guide to what you can see at night on any given day, and to plan future outings of observations.

              i consider this package to be a great bargain and a required addition to the "first scope". maybe make this an "optional package" with the telescope.

              A must for your FirstScope. The moon filter is a must to bring out the best view of the moon, and the eye lens give different views of the moon and planets.

                  I am just starting to learn and buy products for astronomy. I bought the FirstScope and accessories for my 6 month old son and for me, to start building an eyepiece collection. I plan to buy a NexStar SE scope in the next few months. Great job Hayneedle with the order! I will be back!
