About this product
Part Number: SP10585
Please note this Barlow is occasionally branded 'Astro Essentials'.
Remarkably high performance-per-£!
A 2x Barlow fits between the telescope and eyepiece and doubles the eyepiece magnification.
This compact 1.25” BST StarGuider 2x Barlow with fully multicoated 3-element air-spaced optics features enhanced colour correction, high contrast and excellent light transmission.
Its compact size makes it suitable for use with Newtonian telescopes and telescopes fitted with a diagonal, such as refractors and Schmidt-Cassegrains.
It also has a 26mm clear aperture, so it can be used with long focal length eyepieces with minimal vignetting.
The sturdy, anodised aluminium body uses an anti-marring brass compression ring and thumbscrew to securely grip the 1.25” eyepiece.
The smooth-sided nosepiece is threaded to accept 1.25” astronomy filters.
- Doubles the magnification of 1.25” astronomy eyepieces.
- Provides longer eye relief and improved edge sharpness at a given magnification.
- The 3-element design offers superior colour correction compared to two-element Barlows.
- Fully multi-coated optics for high contrast and maximum light transmission.
- 26mm clear aperture reduces vignetting.
- Compact design suitable for use with Newtonians, refractors and Schmidt-Cassegrains.
- CNC-machined anodised aluminium body with anti-marring brass compression ring.
- Nosepiece threaded to accept 1.25” filters.

Needed to get a Barlow quick as I couldnt find my old one, picked this one as it seemed a good price and was in stock. When it arrived I couldnt believe how well it was made and after a quick test on Jupiter and Saturn with my astro rig the quality of the lenses is very good.
Good Barlow at good price

Firstly can I say how happy I am to have found your website. I sent an email regarding stronger Barlow's and lenses for a telescope I purchased for my husband which is a great little telescope. First thing the next morning I got an email from Ian with 3 recommendation's which I purchased they are going to be a gift for my husband so we haven't used them yet but I'm sure the will be grand as has everything I've bought so far. I would highly recommend your website to anyone looking to buy a telescope ect or if you have a question your very friendly and knowledgeable staff are only to happy to help. Once again thank you ☺️

Really impressed with the quality feel of these eyepieces. They are a 110% improvement on my previous eyepieces giving a bright, clear and sharp view.

Nicely made for the cost and works well to give a sensible increase in magnification. Despite the slight and expected degradation in the image when in use, I consider it a worthwhile addition to your box of tricks!

This is a great little barlow lens, I am quite new to astronomy and got this to go with my 25mm and 10mm eyepieces (which were supplied with my scope) to an amateurs eye I can't see any problems with it, it feels like good, solid build quality and I have had excellent views of the stars and the moon when using it.
