Orion #08711 1.25" 2x Shorty Barlow
The Orion 1.25" 2x Shorty Barlow Lens doubles the power of any 1.25" eyepiece
it's used with. This practical accessory effectively doubles the number
of eyepieces at your disposal. It gets its name from its compact size.
The Shorty 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 refractors and Schmidt-Cassegrains. In fact, it works with any type
of telescope. This barlow has filter threads at the bottom too! Many barlows do not have that feature.
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 now multi-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 eyepieces with the short barlow that's long on
We got this nice, used barlow in as a trade. Very good condition, has a couple of marks on the finish - comes with both caps.
