'The barlow did a good job on our test subjects, which also included the Moon and Venus as well as our deep-sky objects... This barlow lens certainly performs well at its main job of doubling the magnification of an eyepiece, and what's more it is also the cheapest in the test.' BBC Sky at Night group-test.
This useful 2x Barlow Incorporates a camera-thread for photography and a removable barlow lens cell so can be used a number of ways:
1. With an eyepiece - the Barlow increases magnification by 2x.
2. With a camera attached for astrophotography - useful when you want to increase magnification or where lack of infocus is a problem.
3. With the Barlow lens cell removed - the remaining body and nosepiece can be used as a straightforward non-magnifying camera adapter or a 1.25" 34mm focus extension tube.
4. The removed Barlow lens cell can be screwed directly to any eyepiece, imaging camera or webcam fitted with a 1.25" nosepiece (via the filter thread). When used this way the gain in magnification varies according to spacing.
