This big Barlow has a huge 2"-diameter that's optimized to work with virtually
all 2" telescope eyepieces. The 2" 2x Barlow is the perfect complement
to 2" eyepieces such as the Orion DeepView and Q70 lines; and it works
well with other brands of 2" eyepieces too. An included 1.25" adapter
ensures all your 1.25" eyepieces will work with the 2" 2x Barlow Lens
While 2" eyepiece users are often trying to stretch the limits of their
telescopes to obtain wider, low power fields of view, there are many times when
more power is needed to tease out detail from a small deep sky object or planet.
Orion's 2" 2x Barlow Lens features multi-coated lenses for high contrast
and glare reduction. It's even threaded for use with big 2" filters to
further enhance your astronomical adventures.
