      I have not fully used the X-Cel LX 3x Barlow putting it to the max test. But so far its use is as expected.

        Comments about Celestron X-Cel LX 3x Barlow Lens:

        Nice construction, however the screw feels a little cheap so be careful, This will make a 32mm eyepiece perform like an 8mm but not with the small eye relief you get from an 8mm.

        Do the math first, make sure your scope can be useful at the correct magnifications.

        No case included, just top and bottom caps in a cardboard box.

        Very happy with this item overall.

            Very easy to use, works well with T-adapter for deep space viewing. The 3 x lens provides sharp focus of jupiter with clear colors and excellent closeups of the moon.
