A 1.25-Inch, 2x Shorty Barlow Lens!
Give your telescope a power boost! The Orion 1.25-Inch Shorty Barlow Lens doubles the power of any telescope eyepiece it is used with. For about the price of a single eyepiece or less, this practical accessory effectively doubles the number of eyepieces at your disposal. It gets its name from its compact size. The Shorty Barlow Lens is just 3-inches long end-to-end (about half the length of a standard Barlow lens.) Its short 1.25-inch diameter barrel is just 1.6-inches long, fitting easily in any 1.25-inch star diagonal. This Barlow lens takes-up less space in your accessory case than a standard Barlow. The Shorty's 2x amplifier lens is an achromatic glass doublet. The optics are multi-coated to ensure excellent light transmission. The machined and anodized aluminum housing is internally baffled to eliminate unwanted reflections and increase contrast. Enjoy higher-power, sharper images without eye strain, and get more mileage from your telescope eyepieces with the short Barlow that's long on versatility.
