Zhumell Eyepiece and Filter Kit
Discuss this article in our forums
I bought this kit as I was getting into astronomy and it increased my eyepiece collection from 2 to 6, added a barlow and got me fun filters to try. I believe this is the purpose it is best suited. To someone just starting in astronomy this is a really useful kit that allows you to try out low power, high power, and most of the steps in between. This lets you run your scope through the ropes with costing an arm and a leg. Then, once you get a feel for what powers you like to observe at, you can upgrade your eyepiece collection to some higher quality instruments.
What i feel is uneeded in this kit is the filter set. I have simply never had colored filters add anything to my observing experience. However, even discounting the filter set, the entire kit is still a good deal. I'd strongly recommend it as a starter's eyepiece collection.
