The Baader Planetarium VIP Modular Barlow is a complete high quality 2X photo-visual barlow system. The VIP (VIsual and Photographic) barlow is ingeniously designed for functionality and flexibility. It consists of several modular component parts, which enable you to configure the barlow for multiple visual and imaging uses.
Designed to accept 31.7mm eyepieces and fit 31.7mm focusers, it also incorporates a 50.8mm section for use in 50.8mm focusers. The precision apochromatic style lenses are extremely highly polished and fully multi-coated utilising the finest 7 layer multi-coatings on all surfaces (light loss is less than 0.2%). The barlow has a clear aperture of 24mm minimising vignetting and producing sharp and high quality images suited for high power use as well as CCD imaging.
The housing contains the following parts from the T-2™-System: #15/#29/#25a/#25a/#14
I really like FLO: helpful in terms of advice, fast delivery; I have bought from other suppliers, but FLO is my first port of call, my favourite. This is a solid and good quality Barlow. Sadly, I failed to get a focus with my 'big' astrocam due to the lack of inward travel on the Newtonian's focus tube but it works on the smaller camera and as I plan to get a refractor in the not-too-distant future I'll be able to enjoy it fully.
This is a terrific barlow optically speaking. Its modular design allows one to use multiple configurations depending on one's needs. In my case I moved the lens from the T2-1.25" nosepiece to the Baader TAK-Adapter M43 x 0.75 / T-2 - #2458199). This allows me to use this barlow with my refractor without risking that the 1.25" nosepiece hits the diagonal mirror. Due to the T2 connection, the barlow can be used with zoom eyepieces.
