This is an economical, good quality 2x Meade Barlow lens with all plastic body but with good quality optical glass lenses. Double up your magnification.
Simply insert the Barlow lens between the eyepiece and the telescope and enjoy double the magnification of every eyepiece used with the Barlow. (ie if your eyepiece delivers 50x normally then when used with the 2x Barlow the magnification will be 100x).
The Barlow is ideal for use with low-powered (long focal length) eyepieces to deliver higher powers, but with maximum eye-relief and viewing comfort. This is a good quality Barlow lens in an economical plastic body mounting. It offers high-powered views with a high standard of colour correction at a classic Scopes'n'Skies low price - ideal for planetary and lunar observing. Best performance when used with long focal length eyepieces (8mm and longer).
Supplied with rear dust cap.
For under a tenner, including delivery, you'll be surprised how well it performs. Great for upgrading starter scopes that come without a Barlow. Useful for imaging projects too (permanently attached to webcam nosepieces etc).
