Celestron Telescopes Barlow Lenses
Barlow lenses offer an easy, economical way to increase the magnification range of your eyepieces, and Celestron carries two of these highly useful lenses. A Barlow lens doubles the magnifying power of your eyepiece by doubling its effective focal length. For example, an 18mm eyepiece used with a 2x Barlow lens would have the magnifying power of a 9mm eyepiece. Itís like having two eyepieces in one!
