    Default Re: Televue Barlow question

    On the 1.25 version, the nose lens and the barrel extension do unscrew from the barlow body, but the threading is slightly larger than the standard 1.25 EP threading. You could use the barlow without the lower element in place, however I'm unsure as to what power that would deliver.

    I've rarely ever used mine, so I haven't taken the opportunity to experiment with it.
