The Omni Barlow is a high quality 2x Barlow lens that doubles the magnification of all 1.25in. eyepieces. This economically priced Barlow has great features like, low profile, 2-element fully-multicoated optical design and blacked lens edges. Barlow lenses provide an economical and also easy way to increase the magnification range of your eyepieces. A Barlow lens doubles the magnifying power of your eyepiece by doubling its effective focal length that it is used with. For example, using an 18mm eyepiece used with a 2x Barlow lens, this would have the magnifying power of a 9mm eyepiece. The results of a Barlow lens is like having two eyepieces in one. Barlow lenses are an affordable way to achieve high-power viewing of the moon and planets as well as other celestial objects. The lenses can be mounted into either your telescope focuser or visual back.
If you are looking to move up to a higher quality eyepiece the Omni series provides more enhanced features in a wider selection of focal lengths. Celestron designed this series with the finer points in mind so you, the user, can benefit from the features that make this series unique. The Omni is a 4 -element premium symmetrical Plossl optical design. Features include blackened lens edges to minimize internal reflection and maximize contrast, multi-layer coating group on each lens surface to maximize light transmission and contrast, and each Omni goes through a two-step anodizing process to prevent reflection from the top eyepiece barrel, unlike most other manufactures who use reflective surfaces. Threaded barrels accept 1-1/4" Celestron thread-in filters.
