SKU: ORI-08472

Orion 1.25" Shorty 2x Barlow Lens and Camera T-adapter

The Orion Shorty Barlow Lens doubles the magnification of your telescope and even includes T-threads to safely attach a camera. This barlow will increase magnifying power of any 1.25" telescope eyepiece by 2x for high-power celestial observations. For example, a 20mm eyepiece inserted in the Shorty 2x Barlow lens provides the same magnification of a 10mm eyepiece (20/2 = 10) for close-up views. Using this single accessory essentially doubles your magnification options without buying twice as many eyepieces!

Measuring just 2-7/8" long, this short Barlow won't take up much space in your accessory case, but its power-boosting lenses and versatile T-threads will make it stand out as a great performer for both visual stargazing and high-power astrophotography. Thanks to built-in male T-threads, this Shorty 2x Barlow can be securely coupled to CCD or CMOS cameras, such as the Orion StarShoot G3 cameras, or DSLR cameras with a camera-specific T-Ring (all cameras and T-rings sold separately). This is an ideal setup for high-power lunar and planetary astrophotography. You can also remove the Barlow lens element for use as a non-magnifying T-adapter for secure camera attachment to a telescope for prime-focus astrophotography.

Whether used visually or for astrophotographic pursuits, the Orion 1.25" Shorty 2x Barlow Lens and Camera T-adapter will provide night after night of convenient, power-doubling performance. Weighs just 3 oz.
