    Default An Owl 1.4x barlow lens question....



    This barlow lens screws directly into the bottom of your eyepieces. I want to use it on my 9mm Naglar TeleVue and 82 degree Explore Scientific 11mm. With my Orion 10" f4.7 scope. Would anyone know how this arrangement will perform? Pat

    It should work. It'll give you 1.4x instead of the normal 2x. I have an Orion barlow that unscrews and that's what I do. It gives me 1.5x. Works well with my Meade 5000 5.5mm on my short tube refractor.
