This Barlow lens from Orion is tiny yet mighty, with its power-doubling magnification and T-threads for secure camera attachment, making it the perfect addition for your visual astronomy and astrophotography set-ups!
You can use the 2x Barlow to double the magnifying power of any 1.25" telescope eyepiece for high-power observational stargazing. For example, a 30mm eyepiece inserted in the Shorty 2x Barlow lens provides the same magnification of a 15mm eyepiece (30/2 = 15) for close-up views. This single accessory essentially doubles your magnification options without buying twice as many eyepieces!
Measuring just 2-7/8" long, this short Barlow won't take up much space in your accessory case. However, its power-boosting lenses and versatile T-threads will make it stand out for both visual stargazing and high-power astrophotography. Equipped with built-in male T-threads, this Shorty 2x Barlow can be securely coupled to CCD or CMOS cameras, such as the Orion StarShoot G3 cameras, or DSLR cameras with a camera-specific T-Ring (all cameras and T-rings sold separately). This is an ideal setup for high-power lunar and planetary astrophotography. You can also remove the Barlow lens element for use as a non-magnifying T-adapter for secure camera attachment to a telescope for prime-focus astrophotography.
