This is a used Antares 3-element apochromatic Barlow with a twist-lock that keeps your eyepiece centered.  It is in excellent condition, with completely clean optics, and no marks, sleeks, scratches, or dings on the barrel.  It comes with its caps, but no box. Includes 2" to 1.25" twist-lock adapter.

The discerning observer will want to take a close look at the Antares model 2XTL Barlow. With 27mm of clear aperture and full multi-coating, this 3-element apochromatic design delivers high contrast images with superior color correction. Not threaded to accept standard 1.25" astronomy filters. Includes dust caps. Made in Canada using Japanese optics.

This new version of Antares' popular 2XTL Barlow features an integrated twist-lock adapter to securely center and hold your eyepiece. The inner compression ring is made of polypropylene and will not mar your eyepieces. Unscrewing the twist-lock ring exposes a male T-thread underneath which can be used to couple imaging devices with the Barlow.

This Barlow lens features a twist lock mechanism which makes your eyepiece/camera centralized. This makes more of the stars focused so it is far better for astrophotography. Objects that are in the center of the field are more likely to be pin points.

This high-performance Antares Barlow features edge-blackened lenses for maximum contrast. The 'short' design ensures that it will work with star diagonals. The Barlow is ideal for use with low-powered (long focal length) eyepieces to deliver higher powers, but with maximum eye-relief and viewing comfort. It is also very useful for webcam imaging and other astro-photographic applications. This super-quality Barlow achieves high-powered views with a high standard of color correction ideal for planetary and lunar observing.
