    Personally, I don't get the appeal of the Celestron zoom. At it's longer focal length (lowest magnification), its field of view is only 40 degrees and it is not particularly sharp, so an inexpensive 25mm which probably have come included with your scope is already much better. Towards the maximum zoom it gets up to 60 degrees wide which is decent, but spending a bit less than its cost for a dedicated eyepiece again will give you a sharper and wider result. And it is not parfocal either, you still have to refocus when zooming in/out.
    That's me, I usually am fine with just 2-3 eyepieces anyway, I see no need to spend more and compromise on quality and field just for the continuous zoom ability, and I even have parfocal rings on my eyepieces so no need to refocus when swapping them, which I find more convenient.
    However, I do understand people who like zoom eyepieces when they go for the Baader Hyperion. It's over twice the price of the Celestron with good reason, it is sharper across all the range with 10 degrees wider field of view, parfocal across all the zoom range and even has a click-stop mechanism that users seem to enjoy.

    The Baader Hyperion is far superior in every way. I retired my celestron zoom after I picked one up, though I still prefer individual eyepieces for eye relief or ultra wide field of view.

    If you want cheaper -might be worth ordering from the US - it's 85 USD -10$ coupon + (for NL shipping and no customs it's 10$) so Total of 85$ to here= around 69gbp or bit more Euros.

    I have a 7-21mm of this from Ali
    Cost 38£ delivered.
    Quite fun to zoom in but the clarity isn't the best. My oem cheapo 10mm and 20mm were way more sharper and clear.
    Also, the fov and viewing angle is pretty bad. I bought mine to do some mobile photography, not worked out very well. (edited)
