Description

Tele Vue 2x Barlow 1-1/4 Inch
Offered in 2x and 3x magnifications, these 1¼" Barlows perform identically. Simply choose either or both based on your eyepiece collection. Features include parfocal-ization, 1¼" filter threads, captive lock screws that won't fall out and full multicoatings.
Properly designed Barlows do wonderful things: They amplify power, slow the telescope's f/# (improving eyepiece sharpness), and give designers the opportunity to compensate for eyepiece aberrations.
Tele Vue Barlows use multi-coated high index glasses for optimum aberration correction, exceptional contrast with virtually no light loss. Observed performance is aberration free, even when tested with f/4 scopes. They even improve our competitor's eyepieces and telescopes!
Compromise image quality in any part of the optical chain and you've compromised every part! Tele Vue product design and execution deliver consummate satisfaction. Every Tele Vue Barlow must pass the same rigorous f/4, full field testing as all our eyepieces. All Tele Vue Barlows now use brass clamp rings for secure, non marring holding of eyepieces and accessories.

        I really dont like to use any barlow but if I need to this one is the best that I have ever used. It does not degrade the image so much as all of the other ones that I have tried.

          Comments about TeleVue 2x Barlow Lens 1-1/4 Inch:

          This is an excellent barlow. I compared quality with a cheap barlow I purchased a while back with the Tele Vue 2X and the Tele Vue won hands down. Why is it better? Compared to cheap 2X barlows, there is definitely more light getting through and the the contrast is better. Not to mention that the image is sharper. I would defintely recommend this to anyone who is looking to image as well. It is worth the extra $$ to bypass the cheap barlows and get this Tele Vue.
