Big barlow lens

Description

Tele Vue 2x BIG Barlow 2 Inch with 1-1/4 Adapter
Offered in a 2x magnification, the Big Barlow is ideal for Newtonian scope owners. It will be parfocal with both 2" and 1¼" eyepieces in this application. Features include threads for 48mm filters, captive lock screw and full multi-coatings.
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.

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

      Like all TeleVue products, the build quality is solid. The optics and coatings are the best. I had to call TeleVue as the writing on the Barlow was not TeleVue green, but gray. I wanted to make sure it was a true TeleVue product. The person I talked to at TV state the new lettering color for the 2x Big Barlow is now Gray.

            Solidly Built 2x Barlow. Brass compression ring will not marr eyepieces. For 2 inch and 1 1/4 inch eyepieces (with 1 1/4" adapter included). Threaded for 2 inch filters. Have used successfully to double power and maintain eye relief of 28mm UWAN and 13mm Ethos.

            Customer Q & A

            Q1: I have a 8" Meade LX200GPS Schmidt-Cassegrain and I would like to start using 2" eyepieces. Does Meade make a 2" barlow? If not, can this barlow be used on my scope? Thanks for any light you can shed on this matter for me.

            A: Meade does not make one that i know of. But as long as the format (2") will fit your scope than any brand can be used.
