Coronado 2x 1.25" Barlow Optimised for Ha Solar Observing
The enhanced fully multi-coated CEMAX 2x Barlow lens is specifically designed for use at H-alpha (or Ha) wavelengths.
Has optimised lens coatings to enhance contrast and minimise glare. The high contrast also makes it a good choice for planetary observing.
Supplied with caps.
IMPORTANT: This Barlow is NOT a filter. For solar observing it MUST be used in conjunction with a Coronado Ha Solar telescope or telescope with a Coronado filter, appropriately and safely mounted, and used correctly.

I tested the Barlow on my HA scope as I wanted a better contrast. When comparing this between my 2.5x powermate, the powermate gave a better view. Cant say the contrast is enhanced as Coronado are claiming
The Barlow itself does not feel the best quality either and is built poorly.
We think it important to note the Tele-Vue Powermate you are comparing costs 2.5x more than the Coronado barlow :-)
