Saxon 2X Short Barlow Lens 1.25″

$99.00 inc GST


Designed for use with all focal length telescopes.

Increase your eyepiece collection with world leading quality.

The Saxon 2X Short Barlow Lens is presented in a 1.25″ barrel format and has a 2X magnification factor.

“Threaded” unit enabling direct connection to a T Mount to enable connection to  SLR for astroimaging.

Doubles the magnifying power of any 1.25″ eyepiece while retaining the original eye relief.


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 !
