Would you like to increase the number of eyepieces in your astronomy equipment, but have a tight budget?
Don’t buy more eyepieces… just consider a Saxon 2X Barlow Lens! Get twice the “power” when you get a Saxon 2X Short-Focus Barlow Lens!
The barlow lens will double the magnification of your telescope eyepieces. It is used to multiply the focal length (magnifying power) of the objective lens.
For example, a 20mm eyepiece would become a 10mm…
A 15mm eyepiece would have a 7.5mm focal length, etc.
The Saxon 2X Barlow Lens is inserted between the diagonal and the eyepiece when used in a refractor telescope, or between the focuser and eyepiece when used in a reflector telescope. The benefits of using a Saxon 2X “Shorty” Barlow lens to increase magnification are two-fold. You’ll get improved eye relief and reduced spherical aberration in the eyepiece.
Works with any standard 1.25″ eyepiece or focuser. Astrophotography – do you wish to take astrophotography with a Newtonian reflecting telescope ? – this unit is obligatory for this process – as without this unit you are incapable of achieving focus with a SLR camera.
You merely slot the Barlow into your telescope’s focuser and connect the threaded end of the Barlow onto your SLR’s T Mount (available separately). Then focus – easy at that !
