Description

Double your pleasure!
Celestron's Omni, 1.25-inch, 2X Barlow lens is on everyone's list of absolute must-have accessories. A very good entry-priced Barlow, it will make quite a difference in your telescope's performance.
The Barlow lens doubles the magnifying power of any eyepiece it's used with. For example, an 18mm eyepiece used with a 2X Barlow lens would have the magnifying power of a 9mm eyepiece. And on a telescope with, say, 1,500mm focal length, magnification would jump from 83X without the Barlow to 166X with it.


It's like having two eyepieces in one! No wonder folks like them: they can instantly double their eyepiece collection.

      I have had an old astromaster 76 for years, nothing fancy. But a little while ago i got a celestron lens kit and ordered the 2x omni barlow with it and, wow what a difference. Makes spotting planets much easier. Double stack 2 of these omnis and my girlfriend and i are snapping great pics (camera is a neximage 5 that i use) of saturn, venus and even neptune. A must have for all scope users begginer to expert

        Comments about Celestron Telescope 2X Barlow Lens 1-1/4 Omni:

        I have read reviews of Barlow lenses (Barlows in general). The reviews read as though they were talking an intimate encounter the previous night with a significant other! This one works great! I tried it with a 10mm, 15mm, and 20mm eyepieces. It works great! I will try it with my 4mm eyepiece tomorrow.
        I want to get a 5x Barlow.

          Comments about Celestron Telescope 2X Barlow Lens 1-1/4 Omni:

          Shipped from [@] 2 days free shipping, very professional service...The Barlow quality I can't say much, is my second one, the first one came in a Celestron telescope and it was very bad. This is neat, looks more expensive and 2 things I like it that is not in the description: 1) Allow me to use my Canon 40D in a Meade refractor and another Meade reflector i have, normally I was not able to get focus. 2) The lens part (bottom) as you can see in the picture can be unscrewed and use in any eyepiece or adapter as a standard filter with a different rate instead of 2x. Just Great!!!

            the best feature about this barlow lens most people dont know is the lens cell can unscrew and screw directly into the bottom eyepiece giving slightly less .5 magnification, i dont like having the barlow hanging out my scope so i attach it to the piece instead it turns a 10mm eyepiece to a 7.5mm, thus adding even more options to your setup.

            Before I bought the Barlow lens I didn't know what I was missing. The first time I used it all I could think was, "wow". I love looking at the moon and this lens works great on my celestron astromaster 114. It does weight the telescope down but it does the job! I called customer service to see what they would recommend and Danny was a big help!
