Meade #126 2X Barlow - 1.25"

Do you need a "shorty" barlow lens? Then check out the Meade Barlow. The Meade #126 measures only 2.5" in length and was designed to fit into the star diagonal of the Meade ETX Maksutov-Cassegrains to keep the telescope/eyepiece height comfortably low. However, what we've found out is the Meade #126 2X barlow can also be used in the 1.25" star diagonal of any type or brand of telescope for true double magnification! That's a cost effective way of increasing your eyepiece collection...

The 1.25" Meade #126 Barlow 2X Lens is recommended for use with current Meade DS Series refractors and reflectors, as well as with older Meade 390, 395, and Polaris refractors and Meade 4420, 4450, 4500, and Polaris reflectors. If you're into astrophotography, you find these particular reflectors require the barlow for your hobby. The Meade Barlow Lens 07273 sports a multi-coated achromatic glass doublet lens which works well at focal ratios of f/6 and above. A thumbscrew securely holds your eyepieces in place and triple magnification can be achieved by inserting the Meade #126 Barlow into the focuser, and then inserting the diagonal and eyepiece into the Meade Barlow.
