I luck up and found this unit used for sale for $80 from B&H just the best purchase.

A lot of lens for a reasonable cost

I tried a 3-element 2x Barlow, which was really heavy. In comparison, the 4-element 2.5x Barlow weighs about half as much but is built like a tank. Fit and finish are perfect. Lens comes with a black pouch plus front and read caps. In use, this lens seemed to be easier to use with my 12 Sky Watcher and Nikon D5300 than the 2x Barlow.

This appears to be awesome!

I ordered this early so when the Celestron NexStar SE8 becomes available, I will have it in hand ready to use. It is solid and weighs almost a pound. When I receive the Celestron NexStar SE8, I will update my review.

Great build high quality ....1 flaw!

Great build and the quality of the Barlow is excellent ..using it really brings planets , nebula and galaxies closer into view. The only downside it the 1 adjustment screw on the compression ring it has to be cranked down tight or the eyepiece feels loose like it might fall out ...it really needs 2 or 3 adjustment screws

Nice Lens!

After a few nights of skywatching, paired with our Orion XT8, I can say I'm happy with this purchase and would highly recommend it. The lens is surprisingly light but built well. The light quality is excellent. No issues threading on our filters. The compression ring connection is a great upgrade from thumb screws - no more screw marks on your eyepieces! I've attached one of our recent images taken with a Canon EOS R fitted directly to this lens with a Moon/Skyglow filter.

Kept all my lenses the same brand

When I bought my scope, Luminos eyepieces are the top-of-the-line for Celestron, and they are very, very good. Keeping all my eye-ware the same product reduces time from refocusing everytime I shift lenses.

Cant beat it for the price

Seems very solidly made. I bought two to stack them together for total 6.25x. Stacking them is pushing things a bit. With the addition of the camera its also a bit unwieldy on the telescope. Using them for imaging Jupiter and Saturn with my Skywatcher Flextube 250P 10 Dobs and ZWO ASI294MC Pro camera. In poor seeing conditions I was able to get the attached picture of Jupiter. After much time processing (still learning) I got the pictures of Jupiter and Saturn you see here.

Great Barlow!

Which is better, the Televue 2X Barlow or this Luminos 2X? Anyone have experience with both of these?
Asked by: Roger
How much do you wish to pay for practically the same results? You buy the Televue for "bragging rights" (better optics), or purchase the Luminos for .5x more power. Either one will give you an excellent cue for a Barlow lens.

question

Will this work in a XT8 with 2 eye pieces 32mm and up? (lower) Will the XT8 have enough back focus for this?
Asked by: Bradley
@Marc TThanks Marc for the response and I apologize for thanking you so late.When I asked this the product that was on my mind was the Baader Hyperion Mark-III Zoom. I don't have a clue why I asked this about this Barlow, old and senile, other than I had planned to use this with the Baader. I did order this and the Baader Zoom. My Luminos 2.5x is actual APO and even said so on the box. I was pleasantly surprised with this. Has been cloudy since arrival so no chance to play with yet.Thanks again for your help...
