Elevate your telescope’s performance potential with our Orion Premium Telescope Accessory Kit. This comprehensive set of quality accessories will greatly enhance the abilities of any telescope. Accessorizing your telescope with a variety of quality eyepieces, eyepiece filters, and a good Barlow lens significantly increases the versatility of any telescope. Having different focal length eyepieces and a Barlow lens lets you view at different magnifications through your telescope, while using filters on the aforementioned eyepieces help to enhance specific features of lunar and planetary targets.
With our Premium Telescope Accessory Kit, you’ll receive twelve 1.25" accessories in a foam-lined hard carry case to help you get the most out of each evening spent with your telescope.
Five 1.25" Sirius Plossl Telescope Eyepieces
Using different eyepieces enables you to "zoom in" on details with low focal-length high-magnification eyepieces to view, for example, a specific cratered region of the Moon. Conversely, using moderate to long focal length eyepieces provide a wider field of view to take in larger swaths of the night sky to view, for example, the entire disk of the full Moon, or a wide-field open star cluster or gaseous nebula. Five Sirius Plossl eyepieces are included to provide a comprehensive variety of viewing magnifications. Plossl eyepieces feature four-element optics that are multi-coated and a pleasantly wide 52° apparent field of view (43° for the 40mm eyepiece).
The 40mm focal length eyepiece will show a very wide area of sky in most telescopes. The 17 and 10mm eyepieces provide a moderate viewing power for taking in more detail on target objects. The high magnification 7.5mm and 6.3mm Plossl eyepieces yield very high viewing powers.
1.25" 2x Shorty Barlow
The included Shorty 2x Barlow doubles the magnifying power of any 1.25" eyepiece used with it, providing an easy way to effectively double the number of magnification options at your disposal. The Shorty’s 2x amplifier lens is an achromatic glass doublet that is multi-coated with anti-reflection coatings to ensure excellent light transmission. The machined and anodized aluminum housing is internally baffled to eliminate unwanted reflections and increase contrast, and features filter threads to accept any 1.25" Orion eyepiece filter.
1.25" 13% Transmission Moon Filter
A neutral density Moon filter reduces distracting glare during brighter phases and optimize contrast of lunar landscape features. Not only will you see more surface features, but you can study them in greater comfort. This telescope filter reduces irradiation, which is the distortion at the boundary between light and dark areas, such as along the lunar terminator.
Five 1.25" Color Eyepiece Filters
Five color eyepiece filters are included to accentuate lunar and planetary features and details as indicated below:
• Enhances contrast of lunar features
• Coaxes out details of dark features of the Martian landscape and cloud detail in Mars’ thin atmosphere
• Improves contrast on the crescent of Venus
• Helps resolve the cloud belts and polar regions of Jupiter
• Adds contrast to lunar features
• Enhances edge surface detail on Mars
• Improves contrast of Jupiter’s cloud belts, festoons, and the red spot
• Helps define the belts and poles of Saturn
• Enhances Martian surface details
• Augments bluish cloud regions on Jupiter and Saturn
• Increases contrast of Mercury against blue sky
• Improves cloud definition on Venus
• Improves contrast of blue and red structures on Jupiter
• Reveals melt line detail around Martian polar caps
• Enhances views of cloud belts on Saturn
• Enhances details in Jupiter’s cloud belts and Red Spot
• Increases contrast of high clouds and polar caps on Mars
• Highlights lunar surface details
• Adds contrast to cloud features on Venus
The Orion Premium Telescope Accessory Kit includes an aluminum carry case with a custom die-cut foam interior designed to keep all accessories organized, secure, and ready for use. The carry case measures 12.5" x 11.5" x 5.5" and weighs 4.7 lbs. with all the included accessories stowed safely inside.
Every telescope deserves a thorough set of accessories, and every amateur astronomer deserves to enjoy the enhanced views a complete set of accessories provide. With an Orion Premium Telescope Accessory Kit, you and your telescope are sure to get the most out of every clear evening.

Different eyepiece designs allow for a wide range of features, depending on the needs of the observer. Orthoscopic and Plossl designs can provide a great quality image with a standard field of view, but may be difficult to use at higher powers while wearing glasses due to the short eye-relief. Long eye-relief designs have more elements and can be more expensive, but work very well with glasses, even at higher powers. Wide angle designs provide a larger view of the sky at the same power as a standard eyepiece. More complex designs can combine all these attributes together in a single eyepiece.
Eyepiece focal length
6.3mm - 40.0mm
Apparent field of view
Apparent field of view
The edge-to-edge angular diameter of the image displayed in a binocular as seen by the eyes of the observer. It is an inherent specification for a given binocular design. The "angular diameter" of an object is defined as the angle an object makes (subtends) as seen by an observer.
Binocular lenses and prisms are often coated with anti-reflective material to minimize light loss as light travels through the multiple optical surfaces of a typical binocular. Coatings help maximize the amount of light transmitted through each glass surface of a binocular, so as much light as possible reaches the observer's eyes to provide a bright and sharp image.
Good lenses are at least "fully coated," with a single layer of magnesium fluoride coating applied to each air-to-glass lens surface. Multiple layers of coatings are even more effective; the term "multi-coated" means one or more air-to-glass lens surface has multiple coatings. "Fully multi-coated" optics are even better, meaning all lens surfaces have multiple layers of anti-reflective coatings applied for maximum light transmission and optimal image quality.
Number of elements
Parfocal refers to an attribute of an eyepiece set where little to no focusing is required when swapping out one eyepiece for another.
Barrel security recess
Barrel security recess
The barrel security recess is a shallow groove or depression cut into the 1.25" or 2" barrel of the eyepiece. In the event the thumb screw holding the eyepiece in the focuser becomes slightly loose, the eyepiece will not fall out because the tip of the thumb screw will catch on the lip of the security groove.
Blackened lens edges
Blackened lens edges
Blackened lens edges in eyepieces and refractor lenses prevent unwanted light scatter inside the tube. This results in higher image contrast.
