This barlow lens has excellent sharpness and comes with a quite nice leather(ette) storing pouch. Celestron gear is always nicely packaged and looks great.
Good product, good service
well made, good glass
one of the best eyepieces you can use, easy on the eye, large enough in your hands for a safe fit.
Optically eqaul to powermate 2.5x for 1.25 but better because it can used with heavier eyepieces.
