Give your telescope a power boost! The Orion 1.25" Shorty Barlow Lens doubles the power of any telescope eyepiece it's 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" long end to end—about half the length of a standard barlow lens. It's short 1.25"-diameter barrel is just 1.6" long, fitting easily in any 1.25" star diagonal, so it's great to use with refracting telescopes and Schmidt-Cassegrains. In fact, it works with any type of telescope. Takes up less space in your accessory case than a standard barlow, to boot.
The Shorty's 2x amplifier lens is an achromatic glass doublet that's 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. Try a Shorty on for size today!
