      Comments about Celestron CrossAim Reticle Eyepiece:

      I expected more from Celestron as my 8SE scope and eyepieces from them are excellent. Unfortunately, this product falls short. The light source failed to fully screw into place and the intensity control is not very useful as it is erratic instead of smoothly adjusting brightness. I'll use it to center objects during alignment of the scope, but not much else.

            Arrived, unpacked, batteries dead. New batteries inserted, LED flickered when on/off switch in certain position. Otherwise, nothing. Unscrewed the barrel 1/4-turn. Light! No... wiring is bad. Broken and shorting solder points. Run, don't walk, away from this piece of garbage. Maybe good in the past, but whoever makes them now makes them to be replaced.

              Comments about Celestron CrossAim Reticle Eyepiece:

              The crosshairs didn't illuminate at first, but after bending out the prong in the battery compartment so that it would make contact with the batteries, it worked fine. It appears to be a well made, precision eyepiece that will certainly help obtain accurate star alignment with my 8SE. Still waiting for clear skies to put it to a real test.

              Better than the alternatives

                Comments about Celestron CrossAim Reticle Eyepiece:

                I picked this model for a reticle eyepiece because of its advertised 10 mm eye relief which is much longer than that of some alternatives. It is more comfortable to use than my 10 mm Plossl which has 6.5 mm eye relief. Turning the focussing ring brings the reticle into sharp focus. Brightness can be adjusted continuously, not just in steps. Minimum brightness is all I need. All in all, the CrossAim is every bit as good as I expected it to be.

                One suggestion for the shipping department. Celestron packages the eyepiece and illuminator in a flimsy cardboard box. The shipping clerk dropped the box into a padded envelope and sent it off. When the envelope arrived, I found the box, eyepiece and illuminator floating around separately inside. There was no damage since the eyepiece has caps for both ends and the illuminator was inside a small tube of bubble wrap. Taping something around the box, even a sheet of paper, would keep the box closed and the parts inside.

                Empty box!

                Comments about Celestron CrossAim Reticle Eyepiece:

                Not sure what happened, but when the product arrived and I opened the UPS box, the first thing I noticed about the CrossAim box was that it had scotch tape on it, so I opened the Celestron box to find only the battery compartment and no 12.5mm eyepiece! I called Hayneedle and they quickly resolved this, so I give 5 stars to their customer service but 0 stars to their quality control. It was obvious to me from the scotch tape it was a returned item, but no one opened the box t make sure the returned item was actually there! Now I hate getting someone else's returned item anyway, but I suppose they all do it.
