This high quality 2" 2-Element Barlow Lens from Orion will provide a power-doubling magnification boost to all of your 2" and 1.25" eyepieces, giving you exceptional image quality. This lens' superior features and 2-element design minimizes chromatic and spherical aberrations while preserving image sharpness and contrast.
The high power 2x Barlow doubles the magnifying power of any 2" eyepiece, which it does by basically dividing the eyepiece's focal length by a factor of 2. You can easily determine how each of your 2" telescope eyepieces will perform when inserted in this Barlow Lens. For example, using a 12mm eyepiece in the High-Power 2x Barlow will provide the same magnification you would normally get from a 6mm eyepiece (12 / 2 = 6). An included 2" to 1.25" step-down adapter allows use of both smaller 1.25" and big 2" oculars with the versatile Orion High-Power 2" 2x Barlow lens.
Using 2" eyepieces and Barlows presents its own set of advantages, such as the instances where more power is needed to tease out detail from a small deep-sky object or planet. You won't need to stretch the limits of your telescope to obtain wider, low power fields of view, which is something that most 2" eyepiece users are guilty of. Orion's 2" 2x Barlow Lens features multi-coated lenses that yields both high contrast and glare reduction. This Barlow's barrel is also threaded for easy use with 2" Orion filters, further enhancing your astronomical adventures.
