      Comments about Meade #128 3x Short Focus ETX Barlow Lens (1.25"):

      I went from using a 2x to this 3x barlow so that I could get a cleaner view from some of my lower magnification lenses. The images were crystal clear. This barlow made a great addition to my collection of lenses.

      I haven't found any issues yet, and I don't expect to.

          I use this with a 1.25" low power 9mm eyepiece. Nice to have the 3X boost when observing. Great product to own for a low cost and big power boost.

            Comments about Meade #128 3x Short Focus ETX Barlow Lens (1.25"):

            Recently, I dusted off a very old Astroscan to look at the stars with my daughter. I only had the 28mm eyepiece, which is great but at 16x not capable of seeing any detail on Saturn, Jupiter, etc.

            The 3x barlow has allowed us to see these things reasonably well in a telescope that is not really designed for planetary observation. We've also used it for terrestrial viewing, and wow! The barlow produces extremely clear images.

            I'm quite satisfied with the product. Surely, there's fancier and better stuff out there, but not at this price point.

              I find this Meade Barlow perfect for my interest in the Moon.
              I tried it first time the day before yesterday.
              I had a 9mm Celestron(Lower quality) eyepiece attached to my 10Mp Logitech C910 Web Cam.
              I got up and personal.
              The Barlow performed Perfect no distortion.
              It will only get better next week when my new high grade eyepiece arives.

              Then we get close and personal with this great and even low cost Barlow that keep your view the colors and clearity in top quality

              Bought this to use with my Meade 125 ETX. Took it out to try it this weekend with hopes to view Saturn as it is now visible in the night sky. The sky was clear and I was excited. In the matter of 10 minutes the entire sky developed clouds, and I was unable to use it. I will try again soon. [...] I only wish that it came with a case of its own.
