High-quality Antares 2x Barlow lens which fits any 1.25" eyepiece. Similar to the Celestron and Orion Short type Barlows. Fully multi-coated doublet design, doubles the power of all eyepieces. Supplied complete with end caps.
Ideal for high powered Lunar, Solar (with filter!) and Planetary observation. The eyepiece shown is for illustration only and is not included.
So what's so great about the Antares Deluxe Barlow lens?
This great Barlow effectively triples the number of your eyepieces in your collection by offering the user two independent magnification increases! In it's normal Barlow mode (see A in lower picture) the eyepiece is simply inserted into the eyepiece holder end of the Barlow and 2x magnifying is achieved. But by unscrewing the lens cell (see B & C) and screwing it directly to the 1.25" filter thread on all eyepieces (or camera nosepieces) a reduced magnification of just 1.5x is achieved.
