First off the first thing you will notice about this 6mm zhumell eyepiece if you are up grading from plossl is the shear size its is 3 times as tall as a 10mm. This is not a bad thing to me however bc it only reassures "me" that it's a well made eyepiece with awesome optics and it is. Now If your anything like me and want to see close up images of Jupiter, Saturn (and you have a similar telescope to mine F1650mm D130mm f/5) then you might want to think about getting am eyepiece that is a little bit stronger then the 6mm bc I wasn't able to get as close as I wanted to with the 6mm but I was still able to see very faintly the rings on Saturn and Jupiter's moons! And the picture was crystal clear just not close enough so ive already ordered the 3mm zhumell planetary eyepiece which should put me right where I want to be!

I have all of these eyepieces except the 3 mm , they are real nice oculars, and especially for the price. This review is for the 18mm. It is not parfocal with the others,it has a shorter eye relief,and it is not sharp to the edge like the others. I am VERY pleased with the rest of the series, but the 18mm is different.

Comfortable, good build quality

Comments about Zhumell Z Series Planetary Telescope Eyepieces:

One downside is the eyepiece barrel fitting is a little long, so I don't have room for my moon filter on the end. I can just move that down to below the diagonal though, so it's not a big deal.

    Comments about Zhumell Z Series Planetary Telescope Eyepieces:

    I bought the 6mm. I expect Zhumell offers the same superior quality optics and construction throughout all of the Z series eyepieces.
    This eyepiece offers better optical performance than Huygens Ramsden, Kellner, Plossl, Konig, and Orthoscopic. It is just short of the optical quality of Explore Scientific, Nagler, and Tele-Vue Ethos eyepieces. I have all the above. I'm using all of them.
    There IS NO better (price to performance) eyepiece available. It is essentially the same eyepiece and optics avaiable under different names BUT at (less than 1/2 the price).
    You have to speak about "eye relief", the distance your eye can be from the actual barrel and cup to get a full image. Most inexpensive eyepieces or other optical designs in the short focal lengths, have only a few MM relief to be able to get a full field of view through the eyepiece. That scenario is very uncomfortable. Try viewing a planet using an eyepiece with short eye relief, say a 6MM Plossl, for a half an hour. Not only will you be uncomfortable while doing that, your eye, face, and neck will need time to recover.
    This Zhumell series of eyepieces has 20MM of eye relief. That means your eye can be a full half inch back from the barrel and cup to get a full field of view. That alone is reason to buy this eyepiece.
    The other valuable qualities of this series of eyepieces from Zhumell that are superior to other eye piece optical designs are:

    High contrast
    Flat field
    Color rendition
    Distortions at extreme low levels
    Threaded for 1.25mm filters
    Focal lengths from 3mm, 5mm, 6mm, 9mm, 12.5mm, 14.5, and 18mm.
    The quality of construction and the optical design using 7 pieces of quality glass translates into a heavier eye piece than eyepieces of lesser quality. You'll have to make an adjustment to your scope to keep it balanced correctly.
    The eye piece comes packaged in a well designed black box, has caps for both ends of the barrel, and is slipped into a resealable plastic bag with another small sized bag of dessicant as a preservative inside.
    Buy one. You'll find out what I mean.
    Why pay $30.00 when you can get lots better for $45.00

          Comments about Zhumell Z Series Planetary Telescope Eyepieces:

          The eyepiece I ordered came within a few days, was packed well and works fine. Image a little blurry first use, but it could easily be that the 8" reflector needs collimation, and /or that the seeing wasn't perfect.

          Comments about Zhumell Z Series Planetary Telescope Eyepieces:

          These are well built eyepieces with a decent 55 degree AFOV and good eye relief. They are big, but not too heavy. I use the 5mm for 90x, and the 9mm for 50x in my f/4 reflector. No problems with blackouts using these. I tried the 3mm, but at 150x it was too much magnification most of the time.

          Great upgrade from the "stock" eyepiece you may have gotten with your scope.

          Customer Q & A

          Q1: Will they accept standard screw in 1.25 inch filters?

          A: Yes, the Zhumell Z Series Planetary Telescope Eyepieces will accept  1.25 inch filters.

          Q2: On these Eyepieces, will the lower power ( 18MM ) work with Deep sky objects? Or are they just designed for planets and the moon?

          A: To best view deep space objects with detail, you will likely need to use an eyepiece that is 12mm or less.

          Q3: I bought a Celestron Astromaster 114 from you which I received this week. What is the maximum magnification I can use?

          A: The max. magnification of the Celestron Astromaster 114 is 200x. With a 5mm eyepiece you'll get a magnification of exactly 200x.

          Q4: Are these eyepieces fully multicoated, or just multicoated on critical surfaces?

          A: The Zhumell Z Series Planetary Telescope Eyepieces are fully multi-coated.
