Classic Plössl eyepieces in a contemporary design The Omni series provides various magnifications and a 2x Barlow lens. The Celestron Omni 4mm fits into any 1.25-inch focuser. The Omni Celestron eyepieces offers an inexpensive alternative to poor-quality accessories kit eyepieces: Plossl eyepieces with four-lens, symmetrical structure.
