Celestron T-Adapter Barlow Lens Universal 1.25-inch
This 1.25” accessory can be used three ways: as a 2X Barlow for visual use, as a prime focus T-adapter, or as a “Barlowed” T-adapter for double the magnification and the benefit of extra inward focus travel.
The Universal Barlow and T-Adapter can be used as a 2X Barlow right out of the box. Insert any 1.25" eyepiece into the chamber and you'll enjoy double the magnification!
This can also be used for prime focus photography, which means you use the telescope as a giant photographic lens! All you need to do is unscrew the bottom section of the unit to remove the Barlow and slide the chrome barrel into the telescopes' 1.25" focuser or adapter. Lock it firmly in place with the focuser or adapter thumbscrew. T-threads on the top of the adapter screw into a T-Ring (sold separately) that is designed to attach to the brand-specific mounting flange of your DSLR or SLR camera.
Prime focus and tele-extended photography are popular for short exposure images of terrestrial objects as well as celestial objects like the Moon.
