Product Description

This Celestron X-Cel LX 1.25" Barlow is an air-spaced three-lens fully multicoated 2x Barlow that provides premium optical performance at a very non-premium price. It is optically corrected for use with any eyepiece type and telescope combination.

In addition to full multicoatings, the Celestron X-Cel LX Barlow has blackened lens edges and internal antireflection threading to virtually eliminate internal reflections. This assures high contrast images when observing bright targets, such as the Moon and planets.

The Celestron Barlow is threaded to accept standard 1.25" color and light pollution filters. Its compact 3" length allows you to use it comfortably in star diagonals. A non-marring brass compression ring holds your eyepieces securely in place. There's a rubber grip ring for a firm hold while handling the Barlow while wearing gloves in cold weather. A groove machined into the 1.25" barrel acts as a safety stop should your focuser thumbscrew accidentally loosen.

I am rather new to all this and while I was considering which eyepieces to buy, a friend told me to get the barlow as it would effectively double my eyepieces. Even though I only have 2, the 25mm that came with the scope and a 15mm Luminous, I can view at 12.5mm & 7.5mm as well. The 2X Barlow was a good price and gives me more viewing options.

Celestron makes a great medium 2x barlow. If you can't afford a $200+ barlow lens then this is the lens for you. It is well made and is a air-spaced three-lens fully multicoated barlow. Double your viewing! (Posted on 12/27/2018)

This barlow offers a good compromise to the some of the higher cost models. allows you to expand you eyepieces without the expense of purchasing all the combinations of eyepieces. So a 26mm eyepiece combined with this barlow offers higher magnification without purchasing multiple eyepieces. So purchasing wisely you only need a this barlow and you can double your viewing magnifications with your current eyepieces. (Posted on 11/3/2018)
