About this item

The Orion 1.25" 3x HighLight 5-Element Barlow Lens provides 3x amplification, more than the 2x amplification factor of standard barlows. It is ideal for lunar and planetary observation and for planetary imaging in combination with a solar system camera or webcam. It is also great for extending the effective focal length of short-tube telescopes, to give them more magnifying power.

The 3x HighLights triple the power of any eyepiece they are used with. Using a HighLight barlow in combination with long focal-length eyepieces to achieve high magnification offers the benefits of better edge sharpness and eye relief than you'd get using shorter focal-length eyepieces without the barlow. HighLight barlows employ a sophisticated 5-element lens configuration engineered to render optically flatter, sharper images than standard barlows can render.

The lens is fully multi-coated to ensure high light throughput and it's 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.
