          Use with Orion telescope & original lenses. Have used it to see striking detail on moon craters and to bring Saturn closer.

                  I use this barlow with my 100mm/f6 refractor. Images are excellent. This is a well designed multi-coated barlow. The short tube length makes it easier to use and physically more stable. There is no need to pay more. This is as good as it gets. [...]

                    I use this short barlow in a 100/f6 refractor. The short size of the barlow makes it more stable and much easier to use than a long barlow. The barlow is multicoated and the optical performance is excellent. With this barlow I can use longer focal length eyepieces with longer eye releif and still yield high powers. High performance at a budget price. I highly recommend it[...]

                      Barlow arrived in brand new condition and worked great with my Orion Skyquest 8" dob and 25mm Plossl.
