When you need to crank up your telescope's magnifying power, do it with a premium-quality Orion HighLight Barlow. You'll get power to burn, plus other optical benefits that make them a must-have accessory for your observing arsenal.

This 1.25in. 3x Orion HighLight 5-Element Barlow Lens provides 3x amplification — more than the 2x amplification factor of standard Barlows. It's ideal for lunar and planetary observation, and for planetary imaging in combination with a solar system camera or webcam. It's also great for extending the effective focal length of short-tube telescopes, to give them more magnifying power. This 1.25" 3x Orion Highlight 5-Element Barlow Lens triples the power of any eyepiece it is used with. Using a HighLight Barlow in combination with long focal-length telescope eyepieces to achieve high magnification offers the benefits of better edge sharpness and eye relief than you'd get using shorter focal-length telescope eyepieces without the Barlow.

Orion HighLight Barlows employ a sophisticated 5-element lens configuration engineered to render optically flatter, sharper images than standard Barlows can render. The lenses are fully multi-coated to ensure high light throughput, and their edges blackened for improved contrast. The machined aluminum, anodized barrels are also blackened inside and glare threaded to prevent internal reflections. A non-marring compression ring secures the eyepiece in place. Slotted barrels prevent accidental slip-outs, and dual rubber grip bands on the housing ensure easy handling. HighLight Barlows require no additional inward or outward focus travel.

For a serious power pop with uncompromising performance, get a premium Orion HighLight Barlow. Then get ready to say "Whoa!"
