      Comments about Meade #126 Short Focus 2x Barlow Lens (1.25"):

      This is my first Barlow lens and I am using it on a Celestron 76 LCM. I first tried a higher magnification eyepiece and sent it back due to blurry images. This Barlow lens does an excellent job of doubling the magnification and provided sharp images.

      Disappointed by flare

      Comments about Meade #126 Short Focus 2x Barlow Lens (1.25"):

      Good sharpness and minimal chromatic abberation, but for photography there's noticeable flare and contrast loss when shooting brighter objects.

      I also have a televue barlow, which is significantly superior in this respect, though obviously more expensive.

            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[...]
