When inserted between the eyepiece and telescope, this 2x Barlow lens doubles the magnification of all your 1.25” eyepieces. The Premium apochromatic optics yield high contrast sharp images, virtually free of false colour.
The black anodized housing with orange highlights matches the eyepieces in the Celestron X-Cel LX line. A centralized rubber grip helps to keep your hands securely on the barrel, even when your fingers are cold or you are wearing gloves. A brass compression ring just inside the top of the X-Cel Barlow grabs your eyepiece gently but firmly when you turn the thumbscrew. Once the thumbscrew has been secured in place, the brass ring keeps your eyepiece in the Barlow instead of relying on the tip of the thumbscrew itself, offering a better and protecting the barrel from scratches.The barrel of the Celestron X-Cel LX 2x Barlow is threaded to accept 1.25” filters, allowing you to change eyepieces without requiring you to remove and re-attach the filter from each eyepiece barrel.
This Barlow Lens is well made and works as advertised. It has made my existing super 25 and super 10 that much better bringing the moon, stars and planets that much closer and therefore finer detail.
