      This barlow really helps magnify the image 3x, while preserving quality, color, and contrast. The resolution is maintained without blurring.

        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.

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

                  This barlow lens does a great job. I used it to view Saturn with the 25mm lens that came with my telescope(which looked quite small through my NexStar 4SE without the barlow)and was able to see a much larger image of the planet, with more detail visible. This lens is perfect for viewing Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, the orion nebulae, and the andromeda galaxy for those with small telescopes. I plan to use this barlow lens and my Neximage camera to take pictures of Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.
